All About us

Escapetrix – Paarl, South Africa

Trapped in a mysterious room for 60 minutes, can you escape in time? Just a short drive from Cape Town, you’ve got to try this new fun team building activity – Live Escape Room Games

We are an interactive escape room  one of the very first in South Africa, since January 2016. Our game rooms are filled with unique challenges to give your inner Sherlock a run for its money, before you “escape”. Or, to fix an ancient portal. Or maybe 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.

The Psychologist

In a world where people lack communication skills, socialize using glowing rectangles and take their freedom for granted, one man is providing therapy – one small group at a time. His methods might seem like madness, but it never fails – no one escapes his “experiment” unless they work together as a team.

Your group is up next!

The Ancient Portal

Following in his great-grandfather’s footsteps, Dan Black finally found the legendary relic – an ancient portal to a parallel dimension. Buried underneath La Venta in Mexico, it had to be thousands of years old.

In order to run a few tests on it, he took it to his special room back home. Several days later, during an intense thunderstorm, the portal seemed to activate, but became unstable. In a flash, Dan disappeared without a trace.

YOUR OBJECTIVE Help Dan to get back before his time runs out, by stabilizing the portal. Fail, and you might realize why it was buried in the first place.

Escape Plan

Escape Plan

Word got out that 2 brothers spent months planning their escape for tonight, but unfortunately for them, they got transferred to another facility this morning. They even arranged for a plane and pilot to wait for them at a private airstrip nearby.

You and your crew paid a hefty bribe to be moved into the brothers’ cells, hoping they left behind clues to their escape plan. This could be your best and only chance of escaping – EVER!

Here’s how it works

You and your team mates, a group of up to 6, will be “trapped” in one of our mysterious rooms for 60 minutes. To complete your mission, you have to collaborate, communicate, think logically and even be a little creative. Solve a series of challenges, find hidden codes and keys, release trapdoors and open secret passage ways – all before the time runs out!

Perfect as a corporate team building exercise for small groups, 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?

It’s so easy to book online :)
