Escape Rooms

If you and your housemates are looking for something fun to do, why not try an escape room!  You will join a multitude of adventurous souls who are giving this growing international craze a go and several venues have sprung up on the Isle of Thanet. Ramsate Rooms love the idea of their tenants enjoying themselves together, so read on for our nifty guide.

Tackling an escape room essentially involves you and some friends working together as a team,  ‘locked in’ a dramatically themed space, attempting various puzzles, conundrums and challenges against the clock. The quicker you solve them, the quicker you and your teammates escape (yikes!) The newest escape room to appear locally to Ramsgate Rooms is in nearby Broadstairs – a first for the town. Nestled in the basement of the old Lloyds Bank building The Bank Job sits below the very cool Counting House Bar and has already become rather popular with rave reviews. Brilliantly, your task is not to actually escape, instead the aim of the game is to get in and steal the wonga whilst not getting caught.

For an escape room with a difference, Ctrl Alt Esc offers a fully immersive, 4D experience right on Margate seafront.  With beat-the-clock games like The Undefusable Bomb, Spacescape and Frankenscape, visitors can enjoy the kitsch atmosphere while really have to get their thinking caps on. Also in Margate, on Cliftonville’s Northdown Road, is The Escapement Margate. Thanets’ escape rooms trailblazers. A read of the reviews shows that people travel from far and wide to try out the various rooms, including The Pit. An inspired take on Journey to The Centre of the Earth, it’s in homage to the coalface stories of the proprieter’s very own grandfather, a veteran miner of 40 years at Betteshanger colliery. What an exciting way to connect with the local history of the East Kent region.

We’ve also heard good things about Real Life Games, on Broad Street in Ramsgate itself. There are also some excellent choices a little further afield in Canterbury such as historic Escape In The Towers, part of The Pound bar and kitchen. Ramsgate Rooms hopes you’ve been inspired to put your skills to the test and have some fun at the same time!
With Covid-19 having put a real spanner in the works for escape rooms, like all businesses they are gradually adjusting to the new requirements and public guidelines. It is good to hear that they are giving extensive thought to ensuring their escape-room experiences are as safe as possible. We suggest you contact them directly for venue-specific measures and guidelines as well as up-to-date booking times and prices.
