For whom ?
Our rooms are suited for everyone: family, friends, workmates, students, etc...
How many players ?
Our rooms are designed to work best for groups of 3 to 5 people. We do however accept groups of 6 people in the same room, but please be aware it is not optimal and the overall experience may differ greatly.
If you would like to come as a group of 6, please book online for 5 people and you will have to pay the difference on site (19eur or 23eur depending on peak hours)
You can also book for 3,4, or 5 people and come in with one or two additional people up to 6 people per room. In this case, an additional amount corresponding to the prices displayed on the website will be required. Please have the exact amount (in cash) ready before your arrival.
It is possible to play as only 2 people, but keep in mind the price is the same as for 3, and the game will be significantly more difficult.
We want to come as more than 6, what can we do?
Our rooms are not suited for groups composed of more than 6 people. It is absolutely non-negotiable for groups of 7 or more to play in the same room.
If you are between 7 to 12 people, you will have to book 2 separate rooms. If you are between 13 to 17 people, you will have to book 3 separate rooms.
Please note, we have two different locations in Toulouse, be aware of where each room is located.
Time of arrival and length
The overall experience will last about 1h30: 1 hour inside the room, 15min briefing and presentation, 15min debrief after the game. Please arrive on time, no need to come early nor late.
What if we come in late?
The game length is exactly 60 minutes, if you come in late you will have less than 60min to complete the game to ensure the room is ready for the next group. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Minimum required age
Within five of our six rooms, children from age 9 are allowed along with at least two adults, or from age 15 with no restrictions. Younger children would not have fun in our rooms, and consequently neither will you. However, please note our room "The Last Abode" is strictly forbidden to anyone aged under 16.
Is there air conditioning in the rooms?
Are physical challenges a part of the game?
No, there is absolutely nothing requiring physical aptitudes in any of our rooms. Only some degree of dexterity is needed.
Is it scary? Are we in the dark?
5 out of our 6 rooms are family friendly. There's no one inside the room except you, no paid actors are here to scare you and you will never be in the dark.
Our room "Oh No Zombies" does have a few stressful moments but does not qualify as actually terrifying.
Our room "The Last Abode" has some moments that can be hard to manage for the most sensitive. It's our sole relatively frightening room, but do keep in mind there is no one inside the room, no physical contact whatsoever.
What is the success rate? Is it too easy or too hard?
Our rooms are considered to be relatively difficult. Success rate can go from 30% to 65% depending on the room. The records set in our rooms were set by very experienced players with dozens of escapes under their belt, they sit at around 40min. Our game masters will be able to help by sending hints on a screen located inside the room if you get stuck for too long on the same puzzle, in order to keep a consisent pace.
Is specific knowledge required for the game?
No puzzle inside our rooms require any general knowledge whatsoever. Logic, careful reflection, and teamwork are the best tools that will help you succeed.
The game is available to players hearing or visually impaired. However, some object manipulations along with visual and audio hints can be part of the game, so we do recommend having at least one player with no handicap to ensure everything is 100% doable. Our rooms "Pierre Rousseau's Office" and "Bank Robbery" are available to players in a wheelchair, our other rooms are not.
Pregnant women can play our rooms without any issue since there are no physical tests nor frightening elements.
However, please note "The Last Abode" is not recommended due to its theme.
Also, please note that there are stairs in order to get to "The Tavern's Dungeon".
I'm claustrophobic, can I still play?
A CCTV videosurveillance system allows us to ensure your safety during the whole game. You can quit the game and leave the room at any point. All of our rooms are big enough so that you will feel comfortable. Please note that our room "The Last Abode" is not recommended for claustrophobic people.
