The original, legendary Escape Boat game. You and your team are trapped on an abandoned, crippled boat. Your mission is to gather information, repair the boat and escape – before it’s too late! Solve the puzzles, uncover mysteries, gather clues – and enjoy Ireland’s top rated escape room experience.

Teams from 2 to 6 players can play SOS. The game is designed for adults but can be played by younger players. Please note that under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult and the game may be confusing for players under the age of 12.

* IMPORTANT NOTICE: The game requires a small level of physicality and may not suit those with mobility issues. Areas of the game also require an ability to fit into tight spaces so please be mindful of this when selecting your team. Also please note that some sections of the game have loud and suprising immersive elements which some players may find stressful. If you have any queries regarding this please contact us for further information.


The long awaited sequel to our original Escape Boat game, SOS. You and your team are convicts, imprisoned on the good ship Zorg Ella. Using your wits, intelligence and teamwork, can you work together to escape before the ship departs for the colonies?

Convicts is the next episode in the worlds most immersive escape rooms. Book now before it’s too late!

Teams  in Convicts are split into two groups for the duration of the game – two prison cells and two groups. One team will win but both can escape. Pick you cellmates carefully!
