What is room escape or escape the room?

Real-life room escape games are a type of live game in which people are locked in a room with other participants and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a 60 minutes.

How does the deposit work?

When a booking is made, and the payment option of "On the Spot" is chosen a deposit is required. A valid credit or debit card is required for this, please note we do not accept American Express. The charge of the deposit is the current cost of 1 player, per room,(As of 2018, the cost is 300SEK) and is deducted from the total amount due when you arrive to play. This cost is not immediately drawn from the card but instead only drawn 48 hours prior to the scheduled start of the game. This allows you to make changes to your booking, including cancelling, without having the deposit drawn.

•48-24 hours prior to scheduled start of game: you may reschedule your game to a later date, or receive a voucher for value of your game.

•24-0 hours before the scheduled start of game: you may not reschedule or receive a voucher.

How much does it cost?

Fox in a Box Room Escape prices start at 300 SEK per person and vary depending on team sizes. Please have a look at booking to find out more. Please also be aware that Fox in a Box Room Escape is a live event and therefore once the booking is confirmed, refunds, cancellations or reschedules are not accepted. We accept all major credit cards.

Team sizes

We recommend the teams to be between 3 and 5 players with four being the optimum number. Two people can play, but it is much harder. Six players can play but it may get a bit crowded and your experience may be lessened by it.

What time do I need to arrive?

Please arrive 15 minutes before the booked time for your game. Upon arrival you will receive a short introduction on how to play and what to expect, followed by an introduction specific to the story of your chosen room. As this is a live event, we cannot delay your game as this will have a negative affect on the timings for the rest of the day. We reserve the right to deduct time from your 60 minutes due to lateness, to allow things to keep on time.

Age limits

The minimum recommended average age of team members is 15. Younger children are welcome with their parents. Kids as young as 4 have played our games with parents but they can’t contribute to the team. They still love the scenery. The main reason of this limit is the complexity of the game.

How long is one game?

The game lasts for 60 minutes, but we need 15 minutes before each game to do the introductions. If you are 15 or more minutes late the game timer will start without you. After the game we will take your picture and give you a debrief. The whole experience lasts about 80 minutes to 90 minutes.

Team building events

Fox in a Box Room Escape is an excellent choice for corporate team building. Your teams will have to work together, use logic and creativity to overcome problems. It is the ultimate team building event. If you have HR department, someone from it can sit with our game masters and observe the game which gives insights into team dynamics. With our 7 rooms on site we can cater for 42 people per game for one time slot.

Are we really locked in the rooms?

Our Zombie Lab, The Bank Job, and Bunker rooms do not lock shut. You need to complete a specific task within 60 minutes, the main door is actually unlocked the whole time. Our Zodiac Killer, Prison Break, and Tesla's Mystery rooms are locked and you must obtain an item or code to escape. However, these rooms have panic buttons that immediately unlock the door in the event of an emergency. Claustrophobic people can enjoy our games and leave at any time if they choose to do so. People with medical conditions can also visit the restrooms during the game.
