Online escape room

We sell both hosted and unhosted Online Escape Room games and have run over 9000 live experiences online.

Online Escape Room games can be played from anywhere; they are an opportunity to play remotely with friends, family, and colleagues as a fun activity or a team-building exercise. 

We are also a real physical Escape Room company with multiple venues across the UK. 

We offer two types of online escape room games:

Play Anytime GAMES

Play Anytime Games do not require one of our staff and have a built in clue system to support teams as they play the online escape room from anywhere in the world. 

Online Escape Room Game

Players join a private live online escape room where the actions of all players in the game can be seen and affect the overall progress 

Beneath the Dark Dark Wood is our play anytime game, here it is:


£25 per game: Play alone online or together with up to six others

You and your team of Agents arrive on 'Black Knight Island'.

On the beach, you are given top-secret instructions; soon, you'll be searching for the hideout in the dark, dark wood.

This is an online escape room adventure; you can play alone or in a team (you'll see each other's mouse pointers and be able to interact with puzzles alone and together).

There are multiple 360-degree explorable rooms, and you have control of your view at all times; when your friends/family/colleagues find something interesting, it'll appear for you too!

Book the game (one price for up to six player connections), arrange a time to play with friends/family/colleagues and start a separate group call using your preferred calling service so you can hear each other.

You have 48 hours from when you start the game to complete this online escape room. Most teams escape in under two and a half hours, some sooner, and just like a physical escape room... not all teams complete it!

There is a built-in clue system (which you need to find), and you get three clues (and can see your progress in the game so you can decide if you want to use a hint or not).

This game is fun, interactive and ideal for social gatherings, team building, and distributed teams.

This original Escape Network game has been bought and reimagined by Know Escape; you know it will be good!

Our booking system requires you to enter a time of booking; you can join anything you like (it does not matter), and the game will start for all players when you hit Start Game.

Online Escape Room Players

Some players have even been known to dress up for an online escape room!

Above are a selection of team pictures from the thousands of online games we have run for ‘Mother’s Room’.

Here is the game introduction for ‘Mother’s Room’:

Mother’s Room has been reviewed on Escape the Review and Escape the Roomers.

We are especially popular with corporate clients looking for a live interactive experience to support remote working teams with something creative to reduce remote working isolation and encourage employees to think outside the box.

We recognise that some corporate customers wish to use their own conference system to play the online escape room, we can accommodate most requests.

During covid-19 we were allowed to use game plans by EscapeThisPodcast, rooms designed by Dani Siller.  Since Covid-19 we have designed and hosted our own games.

We’ve taken these and adapted them to be in the style of one shot Dungeons & Dragons (without the character building) but 100% an escape room.  Think old school text based adventure but with graphics and your own dedicated games master!

No, you can play with your friends from your own houses.

Yes 15 minutes prior to your booking for the traditional briefing (we will spare you the full health and safety video though!)

We will send you details of how to connect in your booking confirmation email.  Please read these carefully and ensure that you download the app if required in advance.

Most smartphones, tables and laptops / computers are supported.

The game itself is 60 minutes (unless other wise specified). Your Games Master will do a briefing and debriefing

Yes! We are frantically showing our Games Masters how to run these and getting them setup so they can work from home.

Yes! On your screen you will see a map (or at least what we want you to see of it). As the story progresses your games master will be there all the way through your game as you explore the room, solve puzzles and escape!

The Know Escape Heroes Club is being established to recognise a group of very special people who have supported us through the COVID-19 crisis.
