general questions & answers
What is a live escape game?
In Live Escape Games, small groups of people are locked in a room together and have to leave them within a given time, with the help of hidden clues and objects. EXIT® offers you not only classic escape games but also mission games. In the latter case, the group is not locked in. The main task is to complete the mission within the given time with the help of many puzzles that build on each other. In both variants, the players are monitored by cameras by our game master. They are connected to the players via microphone and camera and can help if you and your team is having difficulties moving forward. Of course, the players themselves can be active and request instructions to the game master. The EXIT® missions are played by private individuals as well as corporate groups as team building events.
What are escape game missions?
Most live escape game operators, including EXIT®, offer customers a variety of different escape game missions. The genres range from futuristic to horror and fairy tales. As a result EXIT® is able to offer the right adventure for every customer. In addition to a good story, the missions also include a number puzzles that need to be solved in time, creating a breathtaking atmosphere that captivates every player. Depending on the size of the room and the number of the puzzles, the perfect group size varies between 4 and 6 people.
How long does an escape game take?
A live adventure on EXIT® has a maximum playing time of 66 minutes. During this time, you must solve as many puzzles as possible and find the exit. Before the game starts, each team watches an introductory video which explains the story of each mission. After the game we take a team picture and you can exchange your experiences.
How safe is the fun of playing "Escape Room"?
In order to operate a Live Escape Game in Germany, we have to maintain high standards. The regulations regarding fire protection for instance are very strict and higher than in some other countries. EXIT® has a permit for the operation of the system with the requisite fire safety measures, which also include an evacuation plan. In addition, each group always has the opportunity to leave the rooms by emergency stop buttons and emergency exit doors. For children and adolescents under the age of 15, who may not be able to use these measures themselves, an adult needs to be present in the game rooms. In addition, each group over the entire duration of the game is supervised and watched exclusively by a trained game master, who can also provide immediate help.
What is the difference between Live Adventure Games and Virtual Live Adventure Games?
As the name suggests Virtual Reality games are played in a virtual space. With the help of the latest VR technology, such as VR googles, it is possible to send a group of up to 4 players together on an immersive virtual mission. The experience is different, for instance controllers are used to move around the digital world to solve puzzles.
Can you buy coupons and vouchers?
Sure, of course. The vouchers are not tied to missions. You can purchase the coupon for any number of participants. If one or more players are added, only the difference to the voucher will need to be paid.
Worth knowing and small rules of conduct
EXIT® offers live adventure games. That mean that the rooms are made ready to play for each booking and only blocked for the booked period. Delays and shifts of the game starting time are therefore not possible. Our team is, in many ways, trying very hard to offer you a special experience. We do not tolerate racist, homophobic or sexist speech. Each participant is obliged to comply with the rules of the game. A violation of our rules may lead to the exclusion of the participant or to the complete abandonment of the game. A refund of the is not possible if this is the case. The consumption of (brought) food and drinks in the missions is not permitted. Smoking throughout the venue is prohibited. If guests have medical problems, these must be communicated to the game master before the game begins.
What happens if my team and I arrive late?
Please inform us in any case of delay, immediately. If it does not affect the rest of the day, we can still let you play and shorten your playing time if necessary. In case of considerable delays, unfortunately, the game can no longer take place. We can not refund the game price in this case.

General questions & interesting facts about EXIT VR
Can I get dizzy?
In computer games, confusion may occur. Some of the players suffer from dizziness or nausea, the so-called “Motion Sickness.” We used a great deal of effort to eliminate all known sources of confusion, so the likelihood that Motion Sickness occurs is rather low Eg suffering from severe travel sickness, please be aware that there may be some discomfort.
Is there an age recommendation?
The puzzles could be too difficult for people younger than 12 years. That is why we recommend a minimum age of 12. In our game there are no scenes with blood, violence or gun shots.
What is HUXLEY?
It is a multiplayer game which is playable by 2 up to 8 players. Each player wears a computer backpack, VR-Glasses and two controllers. During the game you can move freely around an area of 4Å~6 meters and immerse yourself into a digital world. Together you are trying to solve the puzzles and complete the mission.
Can something happen to me?
During the VR-Adventure you are accompanied by an experienced game master. That is why you have a contact person around you all the time. At the beginning you receive a short introduction and tutorial for our virtual area and VR equipment.
