Escape Room Illusion

Is Escape Experience Illusion playable in English?

Yes, our room Illusion is playable in English. However, we would like to emphasize that all group members should have a good to excellent knowledge of the English language, so everyone should be able to read and understand all elements of the Escape Experience.

Why is Escape Room Illusion called an 'Escape Experience'?

Just like Outbreak, Illusion also contains much more than just puzzles that have to be solved in a room. Illusion, however, has a duration of 90 minutes, has a much deeper story, contains various video and audio parts and allows the visitor to relive the mystery. A total experience you don't want to miss! The name 'Escape Experience' therefore fully applies to Illusion.

This website says that Illusion is scary. What does this mean?

Escape Experience Illusion can be experienced as scary by some people. This is due to the building tension and the light and sound effects. This subtle tension remains throughout the entire game. However: there are no actors present that will scare you.

Why can we only play Illusion with a group of 3 to 6 players?

The surface of the room is most pleasant for groups of up to 6 players. The puzzles are also designed for groups of up to 6 players, so that is set as a maximum.

From what age is Illusion playable?

Due to the difficulty and the building tension, we recommend a minimum age of 16 years. Are there younger players in your company? In that case, at least one adult supervisor (from 18 years old) must accompany each maximum of two children. Note: Illusion has physical parts, so the children must also work independently and actively during the visit.

Is Escape Experience Illusion wheelchair accessible?

No, unfortunately it is not possible for players in a wheelchair to enter the room. People with walking difficulties may also encounter physical obstacles in Illusion. Are you a disabled person, but you don't need a wheelchair? Or are you in doubt about your reservation? Please first contact one of our employees via the contact form.
