We started running escape rooms in 2014, not long after we did our . Our first set of escape rooms was in Edinburgh city centre. We called ourselves Escape Hour. Escape rooms were a real fledgling industry at that time. We were only the 20th escape room company in the UK at that time. There are now closer to 1000 escape room businesses in the UK. We closed down escape Hour in Edinburgh after we had built a new set of rooms in Belfast. Escape Hour had received 479 5 star Tripadvisor reviews by the time we finished up in 2017.
We opened up Escape Rooms Belfast in 2017 and ran it until we decided to move back to Kylie’s home city of Wellington just before Covid in March 2020 . Escape Rooms Belfast had received 399 5 star Tripadvisor reviews when we closed last it last March.
It has taken us over a year to get our escape room stuff shipped over from the UK and find a suitable city centre venue in Wellington CBD, but we are pretty excited to be getting involved in a new project in New Zealand.
We have brought over the same games that we have been running in Edinburgh and Belfast. We have managed to receive 878 5 star Tripadvisor reviews over the span of our escape room ownwers careers. So although it may seem that we are new to Wellington, we are in fact veteran escape room owners.
As well as being veteran escape room owners, we are also veteran escape room enthusiasts. We have each completed over 350 escape rooms all over the world in such far flung places as Greece, Czech Republic, Poland , Spain, France , UK , NZ , Oz, Lithuania, etc.
So if you want to come in and talk escape rooms , feel free to come in and have a chat. We are always up for talking about and comparing escape rooms , as well as hearing other peoples tips about amazing escape rooms that they have done.
Thats a bit about us.
We hope to see you soon.
Steve and Kylie
