Social Escape Room in Alexandria is a live-action adult and family-friendly strategic game, where you work as a team to unlock clues, solve puzzles and complete tasks to complete the mission before the limited time ends. There are three rooms Paris Escape, Sherlock Holmes- Baker Street Mystery and Bank Heist.

The real-life escape rooms offer fun and excitement, making it a wonderful idea to enjoy a night out with friends. Social Escape Rooms are a physical real-life adventure game where you and up to six of your mates are placed in a room and you all work as a team and use the elements in the room to solve the game.

We booked the Bank Heist room. Upon arrival, we were all excited and anticipating what was yet to come. Once we were in the Bank Heist Room, our host explained to us our mission and the pressure began to build...

The waiting room

The mission is simple, you are a criminal and you prepare to take on the biggest bank heist of your career, with the prize being a diamond of great wealth. The diamond is sitting within the bank vault and you must release it before the alarms go off and you get caught.

This daring bank robbery includes safe cracking, computer hacking, lock-picking, and sneaking through motion sensors.

Capacity: 8 players.

The room was extremely well designed and the flow was creative. My team consisted of six of us, including myself, and we got cracking immediately trying to work out the puzzles, clues and unlocking drawers, cabinets, etc. We decided it was best if we all spread out and work on a puzzle separately, then unite together to solve it/ discuss the next step.

The theme was "funtastic". The qualities of props were in perfect conditions and the craftsmanship of the elements was impressive.

Overall, it was such great fun trying to conquer the time without getting caught. Without spoiling it too much, this escape room is perfect for people who love tech. There were plenty of locks and tech (some were concealed) as well as optional discoveries if you have time to spare.

There are a lot of puzzles to get through within the 60-minute time limit, and you can always ask for help from your master if you get stuck.

The Paris Escape Room is based on you being on holiday in Paris and staying in one of the most beautiful hotels in Paris. Your holiday is sadly approaching the end and you prepare to leave. You must depart for the airport in one hour, however, you cannot find your passport and plane tickets!

As your worst holiday nightmare is coming true, you must find your tickets and escape to the airport before your 60 minutes is up. This is a family-friendly escape room with a capacity of 8 players.

The Baker Street Mystery is a challenge that requires you to solve a murder mystery whilst attempting to dismantle the notorious Baker Street Five, a high-profile gang that terrorises Victorian London.
