Our virtual escape rooms are an extension of the traditional escape room with a host and a handheld camera acting as your avatar, you will have access to 360 degrees pictures of each room as the host moves through out the room on your behalf, following your instructions in order to solve puzzles
How does it work?
For all game types you’ll book the game in advance and be sent an invite link—use this to join the video chat. Check the email you were sent for advice but it’s often recommended to join the video stream 10-15 minutes before the scheduled time. You may even want to click the link as soon as you get it to check if you need to download any software to view it. We use the most common software for video streaming: Zoom. Our Virtual Escape Rooms are best used from a computer or laptop with an extra monitor but will work from a phone if you don’t have anything else.
