About the game

Welcome to The Great Inn-scape! This atypical escape room is played in reverse: instead of trying to escape the room, you need to find your way into the final Winners’ Room.

The setting is a cozy cottage that you have booked with your group on “Winbnb”. You must explore clues throughout the cottage rooms to complete a series of puzzles. The clues are dispersed in images, videos, sound recordings and interactive elements. It’s the perfect virtual getaway!

Great job guys! Had our doubts, but this was fantastic! You guys should come up with more rooms, because we will definitely do this again. 5 stars for you guys. We may have won the game (slowly), but you guys are winning at life.
That cipher was devious! We had a great time decoding all the puzzles and got it done with just 20 seconds over the 60 minutes. Thanks for the fun time, beautiful cottage!
More fun than I expected. I really enjoyed it.
We had a great time working together as a family to solve these puzzles! We hope you enjoyed it too. Escaping COVID online was a blast.
Fun and challenging! A great way to get "together" during lockdown!
Great stay, very challenging, lots of fun, good family time, thank you for creating this for our family.
Company team building at its finest a lot of fun

  • The cost is $14.99 per player (min 2 players) for up to 20 players. If you are more than 5, you can play in small groups against each other - let the fastest escape team win. More than 20 playing? Contact us for our big group packages.
  • During the ordering process, you will choose a date and time for your escape links to be activated.

Our team will prepare your links within a few minutes and send you a second email with the official links for your experience as well as instructions on how to play.

FAQ

How do we play with a group remotely?

Choose your preferred video conferencing platform and follow our instructions.

Will there be a live host from Mobile Escapes during our escape?

No, our virtual escape rooms do not require a live host. We provide instructions on how to play on your own. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions on how it works. You can also contact us if you are interested in hiring a live host for your event - this is not necessary, but it's something that can add value to your event, especially if you have a large number of participants.

What are your office hours?

Monday - Sunday : 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Eastern Time.
You can program your virtual escape to play on any date and time. Our games can be played 24/7 and anywhere around the world.

Can we play the game immediately after the purchase?

If you want to play on the same day that you book your escape, please make your booking within our office hours. However, you can always contact us to see if a member of our team is available for immediate programming of your personalized links, regardless of the time.

Can I book a virtual escape for my office or workplace?

Yes! Contact us to learn more about our virtual corporate events, including information about hiring us to act as hosts during your event.

Can I try before I buy?

Yes! You can try a demo of the first puzzle of The Prestigious Booking or Once in a Blue Moon.

Can we play with more than 20 players?

Yes, please contact us for group bookings.

Can I give a virtual escape as a gift?

Yes. Simply indicate that this is a gift through your purchase process. We will provide you with a gift redeem code and the necessary information to send to the recipient. You may also be interested in our escape cards.

Is this a video or 3D game?

No, it is not a 3D game. The puzzles are solved using interactive elements, audio recordings, video clips, text and images. Whenever there is sound or video, we’ve included an alternative text description.

Is there an app to download or install?

The game is all within your browser - there is no software to download. Note that you will never be asked to browse any other websites or social media pages to solve our puzzles (i.e. Facebook, Instagram, etc).

Which web browser is recommended?

We recommend the Google Chrome browser to maximize the performance of your escape game. If you don't have Google Chrome, our platform has been tested on other major and newer browsers (Microsoft Edge, Safari, Mozilla Firefox) and these also allow playing this virtual escape. Still unsure? Feel free to test our demo links with your current browser.

What video conferencing platform should I use?

Our game runs in your browser. Any video conferencing platform that allows screen sharing is supported: Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, WebEx, etc.

What if we are not able to finish in the allotted time?

Our game system will not cut you off if you go over the target escape time. However, some event organizers may choose to set a maximum time for their event, and have all groups reconvene in the main meeting when that time expires. If you want to make sure that all players succeed within that time frame, you can encourage the use of hints (at the bottom of each page).

How do I start the game?

After your purchase, you will receive an email with two personalized access links for your virtual escape: a master link and a participant link. Each team captain will open the master link web page, share their screen, and click the "Start escape" button. The master link includes the game clock and the hint system. The team captain can request hints if the players are stuck on a puzzle.
All other players can open their participant link web page to follow along. Participants are able to explore content and try out passwords, but do not have an in-game timer and can only request extra hints through their team captain.

How much does it cost?

The cost is $14.99 CAD per player for up to 20 players. For larger group sizes, please contact us for more options on pricing.

Which timezone are you in?

Mobile Escapes is in Eastern Time. We can set up the escape to start at your local time, but please specify your time zone when booking. Our escape games have been played by teams all across the world!

How far in advance do I have to book?

During our business hours, we can set up your escape within minutes. Outside of our business hours, contact us to make sure we are available to process your order. For larger groups, we recommend 24 hours notice to make sure that we can answer any questions before your event. If you would like to hire a live host, please book as soon as possible to confirm our availability.

Is there a maximum capacity per team?

No, you can play as many as you'd like on the same team. There is no technical limitation to the number of players per team.
We usually recommend around five players per team, however, we've had groups of 8 and even entire classrooms play together as one team without issues.

How do I book an escape?

If you are 20 players or fewer and do not require a live host, you can book directly from our online store. If you are more than 20 players and/or would like to book a full host or a partial host, please contact us and we will help you set up your booking.
