What is the Escape Room Experience?
Escape rooms are an alternative form of entertainment; like a live action game.
Real-life room escape games are a type of adventure game where groups of people are trapped in a room and have to use items from around the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit.
Thousands of people have experienced Escape Rooms worldwide. At Hour Escape Rooms we offer an experience truly unique in Peterborough, great fun and challenging.

What do I need to bring and what should I wear?
There is nothing you need to bring. Everything you need will be supplied. We would recommend wearing comfortable clothing and shoes.
Is It Physical?
No. Hour Escape Rooms is a mental game, not a physical game. It is full of hands-on puzzles and tactile challenges, but you’ll find you’ll have to use mental muscle and think your way out of this one.
Which room should I play and what is the recommended number of players per team?
Our rooms have different themes and difficulties we would recommend if you haven’t played before starting with the 3 star room. Our rooms are designed for a minimum of 2 people and depending on the room, a maximum of 10 players.
Does Everyone Escape?
Absolutely not! Hour Escape Rooms are designed to test your team and present a real challenge for you the players. Our game masters won’t help by default, but if you’re cutting it close, your team can choose to use our hint system for a nod in the right direction. If your time DOES run out, dooming you, you can ask very nicely and perhaps we’ll let you out.
