No, AdventureRooms challenges and puzzles require no special skills or knowledge to solve. The use of intuitive logic, deductive reasoning, and "street smarts" is all you will need in order to escape. Having great teammates with diverse skillsets also helps.
AdventureRooms is an exciting recreational and inspirational activity for couples, friends, families, students and co-workers. It is also a unique and fun corporate team-building function or an out-of-the-classroom learning activity for students.
There is nothing within the game that would be inappropriate or scary for children, so we allow people of all ages to play the game, although children under 14 would have to be accompanied by an adult supervisor.
We recommend that children are 14 years of age or older to play without adults in the room, however younger children can still enjoy the game and may play with an adult present.

Adventure Rooms are “real life escape games” for groups. The idea is that the team must solve a variety of puzzles in order to “break free” from a room containing locked doors before a 60 minute countdown reaches zero. To do so, they have to use skill, cunning and teamwork.
This is a fun and challenging game that requires searching for clues, codes, keys and using objects in strange ways.
This duel format is where two teams go head to head at the same time in two 30 minute rounds. Team A are placed in one room and has to try solve all puzzles and enter the room of Team B. Team B are placed in another room and has to try solve all their puzzles and escape their room.
There is a reset after 30 minutes. Both teams switch rooms and continue for another 30 minutes. The first team to escape with the overall best time or most puzzles solved wins.
Please note. Total game play in the Duel format is one hour. (Two 30 minute rounds)
The Black Queen
This duel format consists of two rounds of 30 min each, where both teams compete at the same time, in the same game. There is a half-time break of about 15 min, allow 1 hour 45 mins, which includes a pre-briefing, gameplay and team photos at the end.

The classic format is where a group works together as a team to solve puzzles and escape from a mysterious room within 60 minutes. Only one third of participants manage to escape within the given time. Use logic and lateral thinking to tackle the tasks at hand with the help of obscure and interesting objects to regain freedom.
