Escape@Home

Are you suffering from cabin fever, too? Do you miss shared experiences with your friends?

Then you are just like us. But the responsibility towards our fellow human beings obliges us to stay at home and to avoid real contact with others as much as possible.

However, this does not mean that you cannot have fun and enjoy adventures together!

Dive into an adventure

Our new "Escape@Home" brings the real escape room experience straight to your living room. You decide when to start the adventure.

Together with friends

Connect with your friends via Whatsapp video chat, Skype, Google Hangouts or Zoom and face our escape room challenges together.

Playable worldwide

With a login you will receive different information with which you can solve the puzzles and complete the tasks together.

Together against the clock

Just like in the well-known Escape Room experience, your time runs out mercilessly. Will you be able to complete the mission in time before the 60 minutes are up?

DO GOOD: PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED

10% of the net income will be donated to the Corona Emergency Aid Fund or to one of four other organizations of your choice. Do your part to support those in need. 

For all of us, Covid-19 means considerable restrictions to an extent that has not been imaginable before: cultural and recreational facilities have been closed, and we are to minimize our contact with others. The health system is reaching its limits, people are supposed to stay at home. "Character proves itself in crisis," said Helmut Schmidt. As an escape room operator, we have therefore decided not to give up despite the difficult situation. This new escape room concept which can be enjoyed at home is our way of contributing to the fight against the corona virus and at the same time help to secure jobs.

10% of the net income will be donated to the Corona Emergency Aid Fund. Do your part to support those in need. As an alternative to the German Red Cross, you can choose from the following four other aid organizations:

  • World Vision sponsorship, we sponsor the boy Roshid from Bangladesh
  • Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund, The wish wagon - fulfill last wishes
  • Welthungerhilfe in Syria, eight years of civil war - Syria needs your help
  • Doctors Without Borders - medical help where it is needed most

There are no additional costs for you. The 10% will be entirely donated to the respective aid organizations from the net income we generate.

THE STORY: SHERLOCK@HOME

Exciting Sherlock Holmes cases are waiting to be solved by you. In short: Real escape room feeling - but at home.

Scotland Yard is desperate: Since Sherlock Holmes has had to stay at home due to the current situation, hardly any cases have been solved. So, Sherlock spontaneously agrees to work on the cases from home and establishes the "Sherlock Home Office". Scotland Yard is enthusiastic and provides Sherlock with the evidence and information digitally. Since Watson is currently unavailable, Sherlock Holmes is now looking for helping hands that can aid him with his cases, also from home.

Sherlock's archenemy Moriarty took advantage of the current uncertainties and escaped from the maximum-security prison (Tower of London). It is immediately obvious that he must have had an accomplice in prison. Will you be able to solve the case before more inmates can escape from prison?
