Trapped in a Room
Trapped in a Prison Van FAQs
What should I wear?
For this experience, you will be given an orange jumpsuit as well as chain restraints. For this reason, we recommend wearing comfortable, loose clothing. We advise against high heels.
Will I really go to prison?
While we can’t promise you’ll never go to prison, we personally will not actually arrest or detain you.
Is this a room?
Trapped in a Prison Van takes place in a real refurbished prison van from the 1980’s. We purchased the 10 cell van from Kent Police in late 2016 and turned into an immersive escape room. The prison van does not actually move during your experience for safety reasons.
How many people are in this experience?
The experience is designed to take up to eight people. The game requires a minimum of four players. Please note that unless you book all eight spaces, you will be playing with strangers. If there are less than four of you, this means you can book onto an existing session without having to meet the minimum numbers of players.
For private sessions, we can stretch to 9 players but with the knowledge it will be a tight fit inside the prison van.
How long is it?
This depends on how smart you are! If you do not find all the clues and solve the puzzles that unlock the door within 60 minutes, you will fail the room. Allow one and half hours for the entire performance for instruction time and a solution explanation.
Can I participate if I am pregnant?
Due to the limited space in the prison van, we do not recommend this experience for heavily pregnant women.
Are mobile phones permitted?
Mobile phones are not allowed to be used in the room. The use of electronic devices or any outside tools are strictly prohibited and you will immediately be removed from the show if you attempt to use them.
What happens if I arrive late?
The door to the room closes exactly at the time you signed up for. Please arrive 15 – 20 minutes early to make sure you are there before the room is locked. You will not be permitted into the room if you are late. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.
What's your cancellation policy?
We regret that tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded after purchase.
What is the minimum age?
The minimum age for this experience is 14. We must be notified if anyone in the group is under the age of 16 so that we can tailor the experience appropriately. The game can be customised for younger players aged 12 to 16 but it must be a private session (all 8 tickets purchased) and we’re informed in advance.
