Top 7 Escape room games in London to visit on Halloween

Are you tired of Halloween themed parties? Fed up of staying in watching Horror movies? Or you don’t know where to go on Halloween? Escape the room games are an off-beat activity that are right here for you in London.

Unlike any other game, escape rooms make you the main character of a scary story happening in real life. You and your team must solve puzzles and riddles using clues and a good strategy to complete set objectives before time runs out.

Games vary depending on how prepared you are for the world of mystery. Not all of the gamers will be able to take the higher-pressure rooms which require physical dexterity and quick reaction – unless you don’t mind finding yourself running around like a headless chicken in order to get out. But what is guaranteed is that all of them are adrenaline-fuelled, unforgettable and very, very fun.

There are spots on the maps where the rooms are located.
All of them are coloured differently: green, yellow or red. The colour represents the level of scariness.
Green – scary

Yellow – scarier

RED – most scariest
