Choose your Virtual Escape Room Theme
We have two unique online escape game options to pick from. Each game has its own narrative creating a realistic reason to virtually escape the room.
Choose any option below
Option 1 - The Art Heist
A team meeting or an elaborate trick to frame you for an Art Heist? On arrival at the boardroom, you realise you have been locked in. You and your team must work together against the clock to crack the code, escape the room and stop the true Art Heist culprit.
Whose behind the art heist and what devious tricks have they played to try and frame you? Can they outsmart you or are you and your team able to decode the clues and cryptic messages they’ve left behind to beat them at their own game.
Option 2 - Arctic Survival
Can you work together against the clock, as a virtual team to complete the rescue mission. Crack the code and find the location using only your survival instincts.
With nightfall approaching and adverse weather conditions on the way, your artic expedition goes from bad to worse as you and your team become separated from your hiking guide. Forced to abandon your expedition in search of help you aimlessly wander through the snow. But what is that you see through the snow – a small unoccupied hut.
Could this be the lifeline you’re looking for? Although it doesn’t look likely there’ll be any human help, fingers crossed there is something inside you can use to get the help you need.
Inside the hut you notice a radio high up on a shelf, however, there doesn’t appear to be a power source. Further searching reveals a bag full of an explorers belongings….
Can you crack the code for the generator cupboard and find the emergency channel frequency on the radio, so the rescue team can send help? You only have the items in the bag and anything you can see in the hut to work out your location.
Unfortunately, time is against you as the adverse weather is fast approaching and within 60 minutes the hut is likely to be cut off with the snowfall and high winds. Can your virtual team pull together and escape in time?
