We all know the game: You’re locked in a room with your friends or coworkers and have to solve clues and puzzles in order to find a way out. Yet, TIXE is more than just a game of escape.
You start in a debriefing room where the guides tell you what to do (and what not to do), and make your way to one of the four “Adventures”, which consists of 4-6 rooms within that Adventure. Every room is equipped with wall effects that allow your team to shift through rooms in order to make your way out.
“It’s just like playing a character in your own movie and being that hero that you’ve always wanted to be,” says Hao Lin, one of the creators of TIXE.
You have a one-hour time limit to escape. It may sound like a breeze, but these Adventures test your knowledge, teamwork and leadership skills by splitting up your teammates in different rooms and having to work together in order to get everyone out.
The four Adventures are Exile District, Hyperbolic Chamber, Raven Citadel and Time Shrine. Each Adventure consists of different rooms and challenges that will test your patience and communication skills with your peers. Struggling with your coworkers? Why not lock yourself in an Adventure and really work on your issues! Adventures can hold from 10-15 people throughout the different rooms, so working together is crucial in order to shift through the different challenges.
It’s more than just an escape game. The main lounge is full of board games, video games, Electronic Dart boards. If you have yet to try your skills on one of these Dart Boards, you need to give it a go. You can challenge people from around the world at a game of darts. The board even keeps score for you.
Before starting your game, you can relax in the lounge and enjoy coffee and beverages, as well as tasty treats like cakes, Belgian Waffles and marvellous macaroons from local bakeries in the area. You’ll deserve one of these delicious baked goods once you escape your room of choice!
Remember to book online to ensure you play in your favourite room – Exile District is the most popular!
