Eskape Whitby is Whitby's first live escape room. An escape room gives you the opportunity to do something a little bit different. You may fancy the chance to be your favourite detective or just spend some time giving your brain a workout. Here at Eskape we aim to provide you with a truly immersive experience for your senses. Each of our rooms is based around a theme and by following the clues, using your wit and working as a team you must solve the mystery and escape the room within 60 minutes.
Yes. If you are having trouble with online bookings or have a special request or question you can call or e-mail us. Eskape Whitby is strictly available by advance bookings only - it will not be possible to turn up and pay at the door. Bookings made via this website close 24 hours before play. If you wish to make a booking less than 24 hours before play, please call us.
Although we may say you are locked in, at Eskape Whitby, this is purely part of the scenario. There is always a clear exit route.
The whole experience will last about 1 hr 15 minutes. You will have 60 minutes to solve the mystery and escape and we ask you to arrive 15 minutes prior to your chosen start time for our briefing session.
Please call us as soon as you can. All of our experiences are live games so unfortunately if you arrive more than 15 minutes late we may need to reduce your time within the room or to cancel your booking without a refund. This depends on if there would be enough time to hold our briefing session and how much time you would have left within the experience.
When a room has been booked and paid for, you will be unable to cancel it. You will be able to reschedule for a future date so long as you provide us with a minimum of 7 days notice. Please contact us directly should you need to make an amendment to your booking.
There is parking at our location in Whitby. However, like all parking in Whitby, this can get busy during peak times. Please allow parking time. If you fancy a stroll, our location is just over 0.5 miles (approximately 15 minutes walk) from both the Abbey carpark and the main shops.
Our rooms do not include physical puzzles, however we are based up one flight of stairs and due to the layout of the building, at present, there is no access to us from the lift. There is a short walk to access our toilet facilities if required.
We suggest only children of 12 years and over take part as the majority of our puzzles are aimed at an older audience. Each participant aged below 16 must be accompanied by at least one adult.
You need to bring your team, your team name and your individual wit and intuition. It is important that you bring your glasses if you need these to read. We recommend sensible and comfortable clothing and footwear.
In order to keep the game a mystery for future players, photography and videography is not allowed within the game rooms.
