What is Experimental Escape?
Our work is built around willing participants playing our games that are designed to test specific skills, such as problem solving, logical thinking, perception, communication and team work. The only physical challenge of our facility is that we are located on the second floor.
We invite you to try one of our rooms, with the challenge to complete the game in less than 60 minutes. The most competent teams who complete our games in under this time make it onto our leaderboard.
How many people can participate?
We recommend groups of 2-6 people but it is possible to book for groups of up to 18 people on our booking page across our 3 rooms. We recommend at least 2 players as our games are unlikely to be completed by 1 person.
How much is it?
Prices for adults 18+ is £24 per person for a group of 2, £20 person for groups of 3 or more. Kids 17 and under is £18 per person, all groups must be accompanied by at least one paying adult.
Is there an age limit?
We advise that you have to be 12+ to participate in our experiments due to some of the complex themes. All groups on under 8's need to be accompanied by a paying adult. We strictly require anyone under 14 needs to be accompanied by a responsible adult over the age of 18 in our rooms. We warmly welcome families with younger children but please contact us if you're unsure.
When are we open?
Please refer to our booking page for opening/closing times for that day.
What should I wear?
There are no special requirements. please wear what you find comfortable.
Am I locked in?
The door will be locked during the game but you are free to leave at any point. no refund will be given in this instance.
What if i get claustrophobic/scared?
You are observed at all times by a Games Master and they will assist you if required. There is also a panic/door exit button for you to use in case of panic. However, this will void the game and no refund will be given.
Are the tests wheelchair accessible?
Unfortunately we can’t accommodate for wheelchairs as our facility is on the top floor of the building.
Are your rooms suitable for pregnant women?
Some crawling and crouching may be required so if you are heavily pregnant then you may not enjoy the experience. We are also on the top floor of the facility so please bare that in mind.
Where are we?
We are located at 69 Warwick Street CV32 4RQ, in Leamington Spa. In the doorway between Shoe Zone and Coffee#1

Can we walk in off the street?
Yes, we have a payment system set up. we may not be able to fit you in straight away but we can certainly book you in for the closest available slot.
What time should we arrive?
We recommend that you arrive 15 minutes before your booking so we can brief you before your session commences.
What if we need to cancel?
We will only accept cancellations 48 hours in advance. Otherwise no refund will be issued.
What if we are late?
If you are running late, please get in contact ASAP and let us know. If you are over 20 minutes late your session will be cancelled and no refund given.
Can we contact you by phone?
Yes, if you have any queries, you can phone us on:
Do you have toilet facilities?
Yes. Male and Female.
Can we turn up and play under the influence of alcohol?
We can't stop you having a few drinks but we do not recommend participating in our experiments drunk. We feel you would not get the full experience that you have paid for. Experimental Escape reserves the right to refuse an experience to persons suspected of being highly under the influence of alcohol or drugs and will not tolerate violent or abusive behaviour. No alcohol can be consumed on site.
Are any special effects used in your experiments?
We use very mild light strobing and smoke effects in The Machine. please get in contact with us if you would like the smoke turned off.
Can we take pictures?
No. We do not allow photographs or videos to be taken inside our experiment rooms due to the secretive aspect of our games. Lockers with keys are provided in the briefing area for all your coats, bags and personal belongings. We do take a team photo for you at the end of your experience to remember the occasion.
