All About us

Escapetrix – Paarl, South Africa

Trapped in a mysterious room for 60 minutes, can you escape in time? You’ve got to try this new fun team building activity – Live Escape Games

We offer live escape games – an explosive new worldwide trend, and are proud to be one of the very first in South Africa to do so.  Our game rooms are filled with unique challenges to give your inner sleuth a run for its money, before you “escape”. Or, to try and repair a broken time machine. Or even an opportunity to be a hero and save the world! Keen observation skills, logic and teamwork will be the key to unlock the magic and mystery that awaits you at Escapetrix.

Here’s how it works

You and your team mates, a group of up to 6, will be “locked” in one of our mysterious rooms for 60 minutes. To complete your mission, you have to collaborate and think outside the box. You must solve a series of logic puzzles, find hidden keys, release trapdoors and open secret passage ways – all before the time runs out!

Perfect as a corporate team building exercise, date night, birthday parties or just some casual fun. This unique experience can be described as a real life video game. Or, like being one of the lead characters in an adventure film like The Da Vinci Code or National Treasure. Sounds like fun?

“Live Escape Games” is still a fairly unknown concept, not just in South Africa, but in fact worldwide. It has however seen rapid growth over the last couple of years, as it has been featured on various news stations, sitcoms, reality shows, talk shows etc. Hollywood is now also getting in on the action.

Psycho Psychologist

After your group of friends arrive at the B&B that you booked online, you are given a quick tour of the premises by the strange host. A door slams behind you, and you realize something is off.

Turns out, your host is a psychotic psychologist, who lures his traveling victims under false pretenses. He studies them under captivity, to see how long it takes before they “crack”. Luckily, a former escapee left behind some clues to help you make it out – hopefully with all your marbles intact.
