Online Escape Rooms

Online Escape Rooms are exactly what it says on the tin - Escape Rooms you can play online! These fun virtual games can be played digitally across multiple devices from anywhere in the world!

Absolutely! You can play Online Escape Rooms on a multitude of devices across the world. These games have no time-based or geographical restrictions at all. 

Play Escape Rooms anywhere, anytime and with whoever you want. Online Escape Rooms are just like the real thing, minus the set-dressing. Everything you’ll need to play is readily available when you want it, including hints and clues.

There is no timer built in, so you can take as long as you need to solve the puzzles if you want a more relaxed game, but feel free to time yourself to see if you can beat it under pressure.

After you have purchased your game or bundle, you will instantly receive a download link via email to a document containing your personal unique login details for the game you selected.

Once you have your login details, simply send them to your other team members for them to do the same.

Set up a video call with your preferred software (such as Zoom, Google Meet or Facetime) and you’re all set!

There are 2 ways you can host an Online Escape Room:

  1. Use screen share. One player will control the game from their device, showing the other players their screen. Use a video call or voice chat to solve the puzzles together while the host controls the game.
  2. Send your login details to everyone who is playing. The other players will then open up the game on their own device. Using a video call or voice chat, discuss and agree on a solution, then solve the puzzles independently. 

The Panic Room’s Online Escape Rooms do not require a Game Master to run the game for you or give you clues; everything is entirely automatic and easy to use! 

Don’t worry, the games aren’t timed. You can play at your leisure and take as long as you need. You can even stop and come back to it later!

Prepare a timer if you want to challenge yourself to complete the game in a time limit; we recommend 60 minutes for the most authentic Escape Room experience.

Clues are available in each area of the game. If you get stuck, you can click on a selection of clues, offering increasingly helpful hints to help you solve the puzzle.

If you get really stuck, you are also able to get the answer so that you can continue with the game at your own pace.

There’s something for everyone at The Panic Room! Go with your gut - if you love escape rooms, you’ll absolutely love these!

We recommend starting with Sherlock Holmes; it will ease you into the concept of playing Escape Rooms virtually and shows you everything these games can be!

Not at all! For The Panic Room Online games be confident i n knowing that once you have purchased the game, as long as you save your login details, you can access the game at any time, even if you’ve already played and completed it before!
