The Escape Rooms @ The Thurrock Hotel

What is an Escape Room?

An experience.  A real-life escape game where players are locked inside a themed room.  You will need to work as a team to solve a series of puzzles, riddles and clues to unlock and escape within the hour


What will I get from it?

Exciting and fun memories with friends, colleagues or family.  A brain work-out with the challenges and a great sense of achievement if you get free!


What should I wear?

Comfortable clothes and shoes so you can move freely


Can I get out of the locked room should I panic?

Yes, our officials will be on hand and give you a briefing prior to your experience


How much is this and do I need to book?

Yes, we advise booking ahead as we have limited room slots available each day.  Prices are per person and vary depending on the event and numbers - please visit the Houdini Website


Will I have the room to myself?

Yes - sole use with your team


Is there an age restriction?

Yes all rooms have their own age restrictions.  Escape from Alcatraz is 12 years+ (under 16's will need to be acompanied by an adult)


When should I arrive?

Please aim for the whole team to arrive at the hotel reception at least 15 minutes prior to the experience.  Our host will collect you and take you to your room.  A briefing and introduction will need to take place prior to entering.


Can I cancel or re-book?

We understand there may be a reason that you or a team member may not be able to play at short notice; however, regrettably there are no refunds for cancellations.  We can amend your event but a fixed £15 re-scheduling fee will apply.


Is there wheelchair access?

Sorry this room/site is not wheelchair accessible - Houdini's Escape Rooms Experience have other rooms/sites available that may be better suited.


Can I take photographs or Videos?

Sorry these are not permitted.  We do, however, take a complimentary photo for you to keep.


Can I take food or drink into the room?

Food & Drink are better saved for after the event to celebrate!  No food or drink may be taken into an Escape Room.  If a member of your party is under the influence of drink or drugs they may be refused admission.  The hotel has a bar, lounge and restaurant for after the event.
