Escape Room Activities and tickets

Escape rooms are taking Switzerland by storm. They are mainly located in the country's larger cities. But what exactly is an Escape Room about?

Let's find out. Because it's all about captivating puzzles and difficult codes for thinkers and clever adventurers. Imagine you are in a mysterious room together with your colleagues, family or friends. Suddenly the door closes behind you and the clock ticks..

From now on, you have to solve all the puzzles to escape from the room. Team spirit, creativity, powers of deduction and close communication are required. Unusual paths must be taken, hidden clues and objects must be found to reveal the secret of the room in the end

Just a short moment and you'll realize that a number of team skills are needed to solve the tasks

  • Basic principle: A group of up to 6 players finds itself in a locked room and is challenged to find the escape route
  • Time limit: You have to find the exit within (usually) 60 minutes. All players have to step up and share tasks. Teamwork is required.

How does an Escape Room work?

Together with your team you are locked in a room. The goal is to solve a series of puzzles to get out of the room as quickly as possible. You usually have 60 minutes to do this.

The actual task is to unlock the door. But there are intermediate goals that must be achieved beforehand. Maybe you have to open a locked cabinet that contains a key. Or you may find clues on how to get to the cabinet. The cabinet itself may have hidden cavities, or a letter may provide encrypted information for a combination of numbers

Again and again, the group encounters clues both right and wrong. The key words to get to the goal are: speed, flexibility, agility, imagination and creative "out of the box" thinking

Who is an Escape Room suitable for?

Escape Rooms are suitable for groups. Be it a corporate event, a birthday, a bachelor party or a group of friends. Depending on the complexity and understanding, the activities are suitable for families with children. The feeling of having solved a tricky task together welds you together both as a family and as a team.

What are the themes and categories in an Escape Room?

The mysterious room is by no means limited to just one room. Rather, there are different rooms, landscapes, cities and combinations thereof, which each team may deal with individually. The challenges are also quite different and move in the categories

  • Abstract
  • adventure
  • Thriller
  • fantasy
  • History
  • Horror
  • Science Fiction
  • Virtual Reality
  • for children

How difficult is an Escape Room?

Escape rooms are usually geared for any audience. You can venture into difficult rooms even if you are a beginner. However, be aware that in this case you will most likely need a lot of hints. You may not be able to get out of the room in your available time slot. This can also be an experience. However, possible actions will not happen and the fun of the game will be slightly dampened

For orientation, most Escape Rooms have a difficulty rating from 1 to 5 or 10. In some Escape Rooms, this rating is based on the success rate: How many groups make it out of the room? The criteria are theme-oriented and vary. In general, however, Escape Rooms are designed for adults

  • Very easy: Plan, build, puzzle or be a detective in the Escape Room. Fun comes first in the well-lit and large rooms. Perfectly suited for children
  • Easy: Suitable for all beginners, novices and school children
  • Moderate: Suitable for teenagers and above. Certain game mechanics are worked out by logical reasoning
  • Difficult: Single information that takes a lot of time - logic puzzles with many steps. Suitable for adult players with initial experience.
  • Very difficult: Low escape rate. The "very difficult" level is suitable for experienced gamers who regularly visit Escape Rooms
