London Pride is just around the corner and we here at No Escape are incredibly excited. We want to do what we can to show our support for the LGBTIQ+ community in honour of all the amazing customers and members of staff we have had the pleasure to work with over the years.



So, with London Pride being on July 2nd, we are officially pledging to donate 10% of all of our sales during Pride Week to a local London LGBTIQ+ charity. That will be 10% from all games booked between June 27th to July 3rd. With seven escape rooms spread across four different locations, we hope this will result in a worthy contribution.



As for which charity: There are a lot of amazing organizations out there who are doing some incredible work for their communities. On this occasion, we have decided to pledge our donation to The Outside Project.

The Outside Project is an outstanding charity organization with a vitally important mission. As stated on their website’s Mission page:


“The Outside Project is an LGBTIQ+ Community Shelter, Centre and Domestic Abuse Refuge in response to those within the LGBTIQ+ community who feel endangered, who are homeless, ‘hidden’ homeless and feel that they are on the outside of services due to historical and present prejudice in society and in their homes.”



The Outside Project offers a range of services and we highly recommend you visit their website, https://lgbtiqoutside.org/

We hope our contribution helps, and if you would like to give some support, while having fun doing so, then consider booking in a game with us between June 27th and July 3rd.

Happy Pride!




Uh oh. It’s that time of year again. Time to search for gifts for the most difficult to buy for people on the planet: Dads. You can’t get him a new wallet, you’ve done that for the last three years. A new toolbox seems more suitable for Christmas, and if you just get him a card you know your sister will turn up with something incredibly thoughtful and heartfelt, just to make you look bad. It seems impossible to figure out. A real challenge. Some might even say…a puzzle?



Thank goodness you have us. We here at No Escape have the perfect gift opportunities for fathers everywhere. Choose any of our seven escape rooms and provide Dear Ol’ Dad with up to an hour of fun puzzles to immerse himself in. Better yet is that it is a gift that can be enjoyed by the whole family which earns you double points for thoughtfulness. Take that Susan.



Growing up, my Dad had a habit of ordering four quarts of firewood to be delivered during family holidays. We would then spend the next few hours stacking the firewood by the side of the house, trying to persuade him that we should take a break for lunch. Even when he had his appendix removed, we had to spend most of our time convincing him to stay in bed and recover rather than keep busy with tasks around the house. How I wish we had something fun to distract and keep him busy with during those times.



But you don’t have to wish. You have us. So what are you waiting for? Get your Father’s Day Escape Room booked while games are still available. As an extra treat; if you slip your Game Host £20, they’ll provide you with all the answers to make you look good in front of your family and have your Dad finally say he’s proud of you.*

When it comes to Escape Rooms we can certainly say that the old phrase Teamwork makes the Dreamwork applies and a solid team of people with a wide variety skills is the best way to get out of any of our rooms.

At No Escape we’ve seen more teams than we can count and though every team is different here are 3 types of players that every successful team needs.


The Team Leader Every Team needs a strong Team Leader to steer the ship as you progress through the challenges that come with any Escape Room. The Team Leader is someone who is full of wisdom and communicates well with other teammates, someone who can break down problems and form strategies to help keep the team moving in the right direction. Often in the heat of the action a lot of ideas will be thrown around and sometimes no idea is a bad idea but it's the team leaders job to take these onboard. The Team Leader may seem like an intimidating role but rest assured every team needs one to have the best chance of your escaping.

The Time Keeper In any Escape Room team there should always be a timekeeper who constantly keeps track of the time and ensures the team stays on course and doesn't spend too long on any individual challenge. Most escape rooms have a visible clock but that does not take away from the importance of the Time Keeper, in the heat of the escape time can easily slip away from any group so it doesn’t hurt to have a designated person making sure the team is on top of the clock. It’s usually quite easy to know who the time keeper is, they’re often the one that makes sure you all get to your game on time! The One with all the Stuff As every team progresses through an escape room there will be lots of things picked up along the way and whether that’s keys or other helpful clues it’s essential you can access all of these quickly. So instead of these being spread across different team members, you'll find that there’ll quickly be a player who becomes The One with all the Stuff. This is probably one of the most important players because this inventory keeper is the one who’ll keep track of all of the items found and collected throughout the room, so make sure its someone with a good memory and not just someone with pockets!

Here are 3 very important types of Escape Room player you’ll need to conquer our rooms, there are many others so look out for our next The No Escape Dream Team blog post for more. In the meantime fellow readers if you can think of some other roles for future escape room goers please let us know on any of our social media pages!
