21/10/18 – Do’s and Don’ts for Escape RoomNot everyone has done an escape room before. While the majority of our customers have tried other escape rooms in Hull as well as further afield, we thought it may be a good idea to come up with a quick guide to help players: Things you should Do in our Escape Rooms at Take The Exit:
- Check your booking date & time – you should have received a confirmation email. If not, simply call us on 07761540375 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Arrive before your booking is due to start – we ask all customers to arrive before their booking is due to start – usually 10 or 15 minutes before hand. This is because we need to brief teams before and also, to help answer any questions you may have before the game starts as well.
- Wear comfortable clothes – while there aren’t any overly physical parts to our games, you should wear something comfortable to help you play.
- Have fun! This is your game, so be sure to enjoy it!
- Arrive late – this is very important as not only will it effect your game, but others too. Each slot is booked every hour and a half – meaning other groups will book in directly after your slot – if you arrive late, then their game will be late too.
- Drink before arriving – while we don’t want to stop anyone having a good time, if you are intoxicated or rude to any of our staff, you will be asked to leave without a refund. Save drinking for after the game has finished!
- Assume anything before hand – if you aren’t sure, or have any questions, feel free to ask.

02/09/18 – Christmas is coming to Take The Exit…Is it acceptable to say the C word yet? We know it’s only September, but we need to plan ahead! Take The Exit Christmas escape room is comingWe are so close to finishing our escape rooms that we are already thinking of more we can bring to you! With Christmas fast approaching, we would like to open a pop up Christmas escape room from December onwards. We are planning to make the room with a special Christmas theme that will appeal to kids both big and small… but you will need to be quick, as we anticipate this room will sell out and will be only for a very limited time!More details will be unveiled soon, along with booking dates – should you wish to pre-book, send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org along with details of party size, dates and time.A Christmas escape room in the magical Old Town of Hull – what more could you need?TTE
25/08/18 – Which is more important?As we continue working hard to get our rooms ready, we’ve been thinking – which is more important to you – as a customer – the story or the puzzles in an escape room?While the best escape games will incorporate the two with a nice themed bow on top, we wanted to make sure our rooms have a good balance of each. (and hope you will see this when you join us – book here)It’s pretty easy to come up with different ideas for escape rooms as a concept – a family member suggested a water themed room (?!) but maybe not thought the idea fully through. How would it work? Would it last an hour? Why are people locked in?We value any suggestions or ideas, but the point we are trying to make, is, we have had many ideas for our rooms but have had to think of the theme, how puzzles tie into the theme and if it was possible to actually create the room.All we can say is Take The Exit Hull is coming sooner than you think and you’ll be able to see for yourselves!
20/08/18 – Escape The Room?We are extremely busy getting our rooms ready and have also working hard to market our rooms. It got us thinking, for those of you who aren’t sure what an Escape Room is, how would you seek one out? What would you call it?Many call them escape rooms, but have been called Exit Games, exit rooms, escape the rooms and more. Which would you say? We came up with Take The Exit to stand out from our competition. We didn’t want to confuse customers with another escape room in Hull with a similar name.The easiest way for us to describe our rooms to new players, is to mention the TV Show, The Crystal Maze. Except, our rooms are timed at 60 minutes to escape from. Not 2 or 3 minutes, like in the show. And our rooms are focused more on puzzles rather than physical tasks.So maybe we aren’t like The Crystal Maze at all. (But we do love it still!)
When are we opening?It’s a question we are getting a lot lately – and all we can say is, soon. We are still working on our rooms, so unable to give a fixed date for opening. However, Take The Exit has taken pre-bookings already! So if you have a date in mind, along with group size and which room, send us a message, an email (email@example.com) and we shall pencil you in!Take The Exit will be opening soon in Hull and we can’t wait for you to try it!
