To the uninitiated, an Escape Room is a live‐action team‐based game where players work together to discover clues, solve puzzles and accomplish tasks in a themed room  in order to reach a specific goal – ahem, escape! – in a limited amount of time which generally is an hour.

They are really fun activities for families or friends looking for something different to do.

They are becoming increasingly popular, even in Lanzarote. Proof of that is that in a short space of time there is a total of four Escape Rooms in the island, one in every major touristic resort and another one in Arrecife, the capital:

Most of the Escape Rooms have a bit more information on what each game’s story entails and as you can see from their titles, there is a great variety of themes on offer.

All of the games are offered in English and Spanish, with German subject to availability in the Puerto del Carmen one.

If you would like any more information about any of the venues, the games they offer or have any other questions, please, feel free to contact each Escape Room directly.
