Ever wanted to be an archeologist discovering the secrets of a tomb but never had the chance? Or a detective being hunted by a convicted murderer?

At EscapeXperience Tanzania we offer you and your team the chance to play real life adventure games on the clock! This activity is called Escape Games.

If you’re new to escape games you think that being locked in a room is weird, we get your hesitation. Escape Games are thrilling timed adventures whereby a group of anywhere from 2-12 players are locked in a room and have to use elements found in the room to solve a series of clues and escape within the time given. Some things are simple to complete but others make you want to bash your head in. Check out a previous post for an example.

Escape Games are an incredible teambuilding tool, and helps develop communication, logical thinking and critical thinking skills. When players are not able to work together, you can be sure they wont be able to escape. Different players react differently in regards to stress and adrenaline and the challenge is to channel that energy into trying to get out in time.

Escape Games are a relatively new phenomenon that started becoming popular only a few years ago and has already taken the entertainment industry by storm. A game show was created based on the concept last year called Race to Escape and it pits 2 teams in identical rooms and they have to race each other to get out. If you have some time, check it out on Youtube.

Overall, escape games are a fun way to spend an hour with your group of friends, family or coworkers, and challenge yourselves to complete the game as quickly but also with as little help as possible. We can guarantee you’ll be reliving the experience your entire way home.

Day 37 – About 30% done

Things are really shifting up a gear. We’ve completed the roof (see below) for the most part and are finishing up the walls and electricals. Tomorrow we’re going to start to put up the internal walls for the containers as well as the partitions.

Here’s a sneak peak at the Egypt Game we have in the building stage. Of course this is before I discovered the builders built it in the wrong place and we had to move it an extra half meter.


Hoping to be able to begin setting up the rooms within the next week and we’re aiming at being ready to launch around mid-December. We’ll probably start taking booking within the next 2 weeks so keep a lookout on our Facebook Page for more details.
