What NOT To Do in an Escape Room

We’re going to be looking at what you must not do in an Escape Room, so you can fully engage and have a great time. We love to give our visitors the opportunity to win the game, but sometimes they get too preoccupied by things they shouldn’t be doing, so by setting out the do’s and the don’ts from the beginning, we know you’ll have a great time when you visit us at Escape London. 

Don’t touch anything that comes with a ‘don’t touch’ sign

If you see signs which say don’t touch, then that’s exactly what it means. We design our rooms and set everything up in a particular way, and we do this so you’ll get the most out of the game. There’ll be props in the room that have stickers on them and they’ll ask you not to touch them. Therefore, it’s probably wise to do as the sign says, because if you don’t you could damage something, and unfortunately, we’ll have to ask you to pay for it. Therefore, heed the signs and enjoy your time simply playing the game.

Try not to break anything

Please be careful with the items you find in the room while you’re playing. If you break something, we’ll have to ask you to pay for it. Stay calm and take your time, then you’ll enjoy the experience much more. And you don’t want to be left with a hefty bill to pay - let’s leave that there. 

Don’t be tempted to run off with what you think are great souvenirs

Yes, we can replace some things. However, these replacements do run out eventually, and it adds to our costs to keep replacing them all the time. No matter how tempting it might seem, please don’t do it, just look at them and handle them as part of the game – but no slipping them into your bag. 

Don’t turn into a climber while you’re in the Escape Room

What we mean by that is – don’t climb over the furniture like you’re on a children’s climbing frame because it’s really not necessary. You could cause break something so that’s irreparably damaged and we’d have to replace whatever it is you’ve broken. And whatever you do, don’t turn up drunk, because we’ll have to ask you to leave. We make rules because they’re there to keep you safe. It also stops us from having to interrupt you and stop the clock – when you could be having a great time without the interruption, so don’t spoil things for yourself. 

Escape London – for the best hour of the day

We’ve told you what you shouldn’t do, and you’re now left with what you can – which is great, because there’s lots you can do! We’d love to see you here so you can forget the outside world as long as you obey the rules of no climbing, touching what you’re not supposed to or getting ever so slightly drunk, (you can do that later) – stick to the rules and you’ll have a fabulous time here.
