Fun and Unique Ways to Celebrate Your Birthday

Have you got a birthday coming up? Are you wracking your brains trying to think of something fun and unique that you and your friends can experience together? Relax – the team here at Omescape have you got you covered. We’ve come up with a selection of exciting and interesting activities for your birthday, to ensure everyone has a blast. Time to start planning…

Head to London

If you’re planning any sort of birthday activity or getaway, London is the perfect place to do it. You’re never likely to get bored in this city, whether you’ve got clubbing or culture on the agenda. You can see the sights, explore some of the city’s hidden gems – and of course, come and visit us here at Omescape! We’re located near King’s Cross, so you won’t need to go far out of your way to enjoy one of our famous escape room experiences.

Try an escape room

You knew it was coming – what better way to spend an hour of your birthday than being locked in a small room with your nearest and dearest as you all struggle to escape? Our escape rooms are designed for between three and seven players, so you can bring along a core group of pals who you think have the skills to get you out of there within the allotted time. Got a mate who always cracks the crossword in the Metro? Definitely bring them along. Any massive fans of the Crystal Maze in your group chat? They’ll certainly be useful.

We’ve currently got three different escape room experiences for you to choose from: Joker’s Asylum, The Penitentiary, and Biohazard Laboratory. If your idea of fun is trying to break out of prison or rescue a town from toxic sewage, we’ve got a birthday treat for you!

Give VR a go

Birthdays are a time to try something special, so why not book into our amazing new VR escape room experience? Mind Horror sees you and up to five friends donning virtual reality headsets to enter the brain of a serial killer. You won’t be using controllers to navigate – you and your mates will be fully immersed in this unique experience, where you can use your hands to solve puzzles and crack codes (and high-five each other at the end, obviously). This one’s booking up fast, so make sure you get your reservations in early so you can celebrate your birthday in style.

Looking for a gift?

Perhaps it’s not your birthday you’re planning for – maybe a friend has a big milestone coming up and you’re looking for a memorable way to help them celebrate. At Omescape, we offer gift vouchers for one person all the way up to a full group of seven (feeling generous?). They make the ideal birthday present for a friend or family member who think of themselves as a bit of a virtual adventurer. Get in touch with the team today to find out more.

A thrilling experience! It's hard to review this place while not spoiling the puzzles, but it was truly a blast. The production value of the two escape rooms I've tried were pretty amazing. It kind of felt like being in a movie!

Awesome rooms. I've done a lot of live escape rooms and the one we did at Omescape London was both challenging and had incredible technology to it.

Would love to do this again! The puzzles were clever and challenging. Clearly they put in a great deal of effort towards designing interesting puzzles. I have no idea how they orchestrated all of it, but it worked great!
