What is an escape room?
Live Escape games comes from the popular pc games and now it’s also played offline which is more fun to do. In 2007 the first Live Escape Room was founded in Japan. The first escape room in Europe was in Hungary (2011). After the Netherlands (2013), it came to Belgium a year later. The concept is that you and some friends are locked up in a room (or even a house) which has a certain theme. It can be adventurous, mysterious, detective, horror,.. By looking for clues, keys and solving puzzles you have to get out that room within a certain time, mostly 60 minutes. So it’s a race against time and time flies while having fun.
How many people can play?
Unless you have a lot of experience with escaping it’s recommended to play the rooms with minimum 3 persons. Please look for the maximum amount of persons. It is really not possible to come with more persons. If the group is bigger than the maximum number of people per room, you have to book more rooms. It’s possible to book 3 rooms at the same time.
Who can play these escape games?
Everybody who wants to feel the thrill of escaping with his/her friends, partner, family or colleagues by looking for clues and solving puzzles will certainly enjoy the experience. Attention: we have to warn that it’s possible that if you play one room, you get hit by the ‘escape-virus’ and there’s no cure for it yet!
Is there a minimum age required?
The games are most suited for the age between 18 en 60. If there’s any text in the room, it will be in English and some puzzles can be too hard for younger or older people. Under 18 entrance is only allowed with adults. We do not allow entering the room for children under 16 years.
Can I cancel the booking?
You can cancel your booking free of charge up to 7 days before the start of the game. That means if the booking is on friday at 17.00h, the last change to cancel in time is until 17.00h the friday before. After that you will receive a voucher for the amount paid minus a charge of 50 euro per room. In case of a no-show there is no refund. If one person cannot attend, let us know by email (!) in advance, he/she will receive a voucher. Extra persons can pay the fixed price for extra players (20€) on arrival.
Can we get help during the game?
The goal is to escape the room with the help of the clues but it’s not always that easy. So when the gamemaster sees that you are blocked at some puzzle or during the game flow, he or she will give a hint so you can go further.
What time we have to arrive?
We ask you to arrive 15 minutes before the start of the game (not earlier). This gives you time for a stop at the toilet and to lock your stuff away in the lockers. There will be a short briefing. If you are late, we will have to deduct it from your 60 minutes, so please plan your trip and be on time. If not, give us a call. IF YOU ARE DRUNK OR UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS, YOU WILL BE REFUSED ENTRANCE TO THE ESCAPE ROOM without refund!

Why this site is in English?
A lot of international students, employees and tourists are staying in Leuven. Therefore it’s logic this site is at least in English. A Dutch version is possible in the future. Another reason is that some text in the games (not soo much) are in English. We are sure our visitors understand some basic English. We speak Dutch and English.
