Since the first pioneers toke that concept into the real world, several thousands of Escape Rooms have opened their doors worldwide. Although the concept in an Escape Rooms has many characteristics like the computer games, there is one essential ellemtn added: players are actually locked up inside a room and have to solve the game within a given amount of time, mostly 60 minutes (or at least give the impression to be locked up; due to safety it’s never a great idea to physically lock the doors).
- We do not allow intoxicated players; alcohol and/or drug use prior, during or afterwards is absolutely out of the question
- Items such as a mobile phone, keys and lighters that you carry with you are not allowed during the game. Therefore the Gamemaster will offer to store any items for you during the game. If you choose to keep them with you we are fine with that, but using any item that’s not already in the bus may result in a definitive game-failure
- Some elements inside the bus are not actually part of the game. The Gamemaster will brief you on that. Please do not force and/or use any elements, as pointed out during the briefing that will be given before the game starts
- If you deliberately cause any damage we will present you with the bill for restoring that damage
- If you choose to use the emergency system during the game, the game will terminate. We don’t refund emergency exits.
- Smoking in public transport is prohibited in The Netherlands and therefore not allowed inside the Escape Bus
However, unlike some other Escape Rooms, we don’t use real life actors during the game. So no need to be afraid on that part.
First of all we’ve installed two panic buttons inside the bus. When one of the players pushes that button the game is immediately terminated and the front- and backdoors of the bus will open automatically.
In addition to that player-controlled panic mechanism, there will always be a skilled Gamemaster monitoring the game from a room located directly behind the Escape Bus. Using several camera’s and microphones, the Gamemaster is able to know exactly what’s going on inside the bus and to communicate with the players if needed. When needed the Gamemaster can also control the doors and terminate the game if players feel they want to exit the game immediately.
If you know your not good at handeling serious stress, unexpected sounds and/or lights, locked rooms, feelings of frustration, unexpected motion and/or panic, then the Escape Bus might not be for you. For the same reasons we do not recommend pregnant woman to enter the bus.
In addition the Escape Bus is not suited for players with disabilities such as ones that resulted in needing a wheelchair. Although we really regret that, it turned out to be impossible to create an Escape Room inside a Bus without having elements that restrict entry and movement for wheelchairs.
If you’re having any doubts regarding this question, we would love to get in touch with you and discusses the possibilities!
