What the World Would Be Like If Escape Rooms Didn’t Exist
Escape rooms are one of the biggest new movements in the group-entertainment and gaming industry. If you haven’t tried an escape room – what are you waiting for? They’re the ultimate activity for many occasions, including;
A World Without Escape Rooms
And the benefits doesn’t end there. Escape rooms make such a well-rounded activity for so many different age groups too, as well as being varied enough (in terms of themes and content) to appeal to lots of interests and demographics. This makes it a hit with everyone involved, and lets everyone get engaged with the activity too.
But what would the world be like without escape rooms? We explored the idea below…
Without them there would be less choice for group activities
There are escape from the room games in most towns and cities now, offering entertaining and complex activities for groups of friends of colleagues. Without them, there would be far less choice for group activities and less opportunity for group bonding and team building – especially for corporate events. Because escape rooms offer such a diverse choice in themes and plot lines – it’s unlikely there would be anything as widely appealing.
Without escape rooms there would be no complex / intellectual yet fun way to spend time as a group
There are lots of group activities for colleagues and friends that are sport-orientated (such as bowling, obstacle course, etc. It is tricky however to find group activities that stimulate the brain too. Without escape the room games, there would be a real lack of intellectual-driven activities for groups. They encourage conversation, logic and puzzle solving, and there aren’t many other activities in the event space that can offer this in the same way.
Without Escape Rooms, There Would Be No Escape Room Horror Movies
The escape room movies aren’t exactly factual depictions of escape room games (far from it!) but without the escape room events and games, we wouldn’t have all the escape room movies that have been recently released!
Thankfully We Do Live in a World with Escape Rooms and VR Escape Games
Let’s take a look at what’s on offer at our venue in Aldgate.
A Popular Escape Room
The Kingdom of Cats is our popular escape room here at Omescape. From the moment you enter the room, you are transported to a fantasy realm inhabited by huge cats ruled by King Jasper. Unlike the cats of our world, these animals don’t take kindly to humans – and your team’s presence hasn’t gone unnoticed.
King Jasper sentences you to death by a thousand scratches. You and your team have less than an hour to enlist the help of some of the animals you encounter, find clues, solve puzzles, and escape.
Exciting VR Escape Games
You’ll also find a great selection of thrilling VR escape games at our venue in Aldgate, London. Using the latest in wireless VR technology, they offer a free-roam experience that you and your family, friends, or colleagues aren’t likely to forget.
Arizona Sunshine is the ultimate VR zombie apocalypse escape experience. Placed in the middle of the desert in the US state, you and your team must scavenge and shoot to escape from hordes of the murderous undead.

The options include zombie attack-themed Dead Ahead, fantasy archery themed Arrowsong, retro arcade-style Cyber Shock, player vs player Quantum Arena, and player vs player Cops vs Robbers.
Corsair’s Curse sees you and your team board an enchanted galleon, said to be the location of the fabulous treasure of a long-dead pirate. The pirate’s body may be long gone, but his ghost doesn’t take kindly to intruders. He curses your team, transforming you into wooden idols of various sizes. Can you work together across spatial dimensions to find clues, solve puzzles, break the curse, and escape with the Corsair’s treasure? Find out at Omescape.

When you eventually find the Ghost King, you’ll need to work as a team to defeat him.
Huxley is set in the year 3007, in a world in which machines have taken over. As the last survivors of humanity, your mission is to find and help Huxley, a source of infinite energy, to reverse the apocalypse.
