We’re a premium product; our games are our own, and in bigger explorable spaces (meaning higher rents and rates reflected in your ticket price). We also provide a dedicated Games Master who is watching your game, and only your game (and never mix you with strangers). It’s the Know Escape difference, it’s one of the reasons why we have thousands of five star reviews.
Comfortable clothing is recommended.
