Escape to one of Brighton’s Exit Games: Our Guide to Brighton Escape Games
Bored of your regular nights out? Take a break from the norm and check out a totally different immersive experience at one of Brighton’s hidden escape rooms.
Slowly but surely, these quirky little adventures are popping up regularly across the UK. The 90’s classic adventure show the Crystal Maze made a recent return to Channel 4 in a one-off in aid of Stand Up to Cancer. This genre seems to be making a huge come back, but this time people want to get right in on the live action.
What’s it all about?
An escape room is a physical adventure game in which players are locked in a room and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles and escape within a set time limit. The games are physical versions of “escape the room” video games. Since their first appearance in Japan in 2006, their popularity across the world has snow balled.
What does Brighton have to offer?
So far we’ve heard about four exit games in Brighton, all offering very different immersive theatre experiences. They are all excellent team building exercises and some can be tailored for younger guests. Most escape room games include a short introduction with up to 60 minutes to complete the challenge with a debrief at the end.
