Eskape is a small, family run escape room with two rooms designed and built by the team.
After playing our first escape room in 2013 and being hooked from the word go, we had the opportunity and took the plunge to started planning and searching for premises in Early 2017.
Just 6 months later, after much help from friends and family, Eskape opened it's doors in June of 2017.
The team currently consists of 3 faces that you may meet when you visit us:
Kathryn and Sandra will most likely be your gamesmasters - they know our games very well and are the best people to help you through our games.
Kevin works mostly behind the scenes and is the man who makes the magic happen - our electrical wizard and actor.
We look forward to welcoming you!
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 on 07480 117323, we will try to accommodate you.
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 72 hours notice. Please contact us directly should you need to make an amendment to your booking. If you need to cancel due to Covid-19 please contact us as soon as you can. We understand these are strange times.
There is a free car park at our location in Whitby that you may use when visiting us. 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 10 minutes walk) from both the Abbey car park 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 walk and additional flight of stairs to access our toilet facilities if required.
We suggest only children aged 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.
