“Very cool experience, first escape room for me, didn’t know what to expect. Clear explanation beforehand about what was going to happen. very fun! You imagine yourself in a completely different world where you solve ingeniously devised puzzles to get free. The entrance showed that they have several escape rooms, so definitely worth repeating.” – Raymon

Frequently asked questions

Do you have any questions about our escape rooms in Amsterdam? Or would you like to know what we can do for (large) groups? Have a look at the frequently asked questions below. Is your question not included? Feel free to contact us, we are happy to answer your questions.

1. How do I play an Escape Room?

If we were to answer this question, we would give away all the surprise and experience. Let’s just say that it is one of the most exciting and adventurous ways to spend time with your friends, family or colleagues. The game itself involves you all working together to escape from a room by solving a mystery. Solve the mystery and escape within 60 minutes. Does this all sound very simple? Otherwise, come and experience it for yourself soon!

2. Is it scary?

Only in the “Cabin in the Woods” is there a somewhat tense atmosphere at one point. Otherwise, there are no major fear factors or physical activities present in our escape rooms. The Cabin in the Woods is only suitable for young children accompanied by an adult. All other rooms are suitable for young children from 9 years old. For more information, see point 5: Is it suitable for children?

3. Why Escape World Waterlooplein?

Book with us if you are looking to have a fun and memorable time with friends, family or colleagues. We guarantee to offer the most atmospheric escaperooms in the Netherlands, in which the story and cool technical gadgets also blend seamlessly. Moreover, we are located in the heart of Amsterdam, with several restaurants nearby.

4. What themes do you offer?

You can currently choose from 5 rooms with 4 different themes (2x Cabin in the Woods, 1x The Flying Dutchman and 1x The Golden Ticket and 1x The Missing Bride). Each theme is completely different, interesting and exciting. So be surprised!

5. Is it suitable for children?

Our rooms are suitable for children and young adults aged 12 and over, accompanied by an adult. The room The Flying Dutchman can be played by children from 12 years onwards without supervision. At the Cabin in the Woods, adults should always accompany you. We do not offer any packages or children’s parties in Amsterdam. It is possible to book an escape room for children online.

6. Can we play against each other in the same theme?

Yes definitely! We have 2 identical Cabin in the Woods escaperooms. So with a group of up to 12 people, you can take on the same adventure in these rooms in two teams simultaneously! If you fancy a little competition, be sure to compete with your friends, family or colleagues!

7. For how many people is there room?

There is currently room for 36 people at a time in six escaperooms. If there are larger numbers, we can book a second round in addition.

From 2 rounds, we have plenty of options to make it a fun event; see also our packages for groups.

8. Do you also offer package deals for larger groups?

Yes, we offer numerous packages for groups of friends, family or even company outings, such as a staff or team outing. We can create programmes for groups of up to 105 people. Think of a combination with a city game, or combine an escape room with a dinner. Check out our escape room packages in Amsterdam!

9. How can I book for a group of more than 6 people?

If you come with a group of more than 6 people, you can book multiple escape rooms. The people are divided into groups of equal size across several rooms. This is possible for up to 36 people at the same time!

Via our online bookingsystem you can book multiple escape rooms at the same times. You can immediately see the availability in a handy overview!

Would you rather request a quote first? Then send us an email at [email protected]

10. Are the Escape Rooms playable in English (English availability)

Our escape rooms are bilingual: this means that all texts in the game can be found in both English, and Dutch. If the text can only be displayed one way, it will be in easily understandable English. Our Game Masters speak English to help you along.

It is therefore possible to play the escape room with a mixed group of Dutch-speaking and English-speaking people at the same time!

11. What are your opening hours in Amsterdam?

We are open on every week from Tuesday to Friday from 13:00 to 22:00. Every Saturday and Sunday we are open from 11:30 to 22:00.
Check our booking page for availability and book your escape room right away!

12. I don't like games, why would I like this?

Because it’s not a game like other games you know. It is like a live computer game where you end up in a film set and have to solve puzzles by yourself. We’re almost sure you’ll have an unforgettable time, then have a drink together and take a photo with your friends afterwards.

13. What are your ground rules regarding drink, drugs & manners?

We have some strict house rules for playing an Escape Room.
For example, no violence or brute force is allowed in the escape rooms. There are no tasks that require physical strength, so please do not do so.

In addition, alcohol/drugs or entering the escape room under the influence is not allowed, also in connection with your own safety.

Finally, we do not allow phone devices in the escape rooms, you hand these in to the Game Master before playing and get them back immediately after playing. By definition, Google takes away from the escape fun!

If the rules are broken, Escape World staff may deny people access to the establishment or Escape Room or stop the game. When booking, you agree to this via our terms and conditions.

14. Where can I park?

We are right on Waterlooplein in the heart of the city centre, so you can only find paid parking in the Waterlooplein car park: Valkenburgerstraat 238, 1011 ND Amsterdam. From there, our location is a 2-minute walk away.

15. Are your escape rooms also suitable for people in wheelchairs?

This venue is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. The Golden Ticket or Cabin in the Woods rooms may be suitable if you have mobility problems. The “Missing Bride” room is suitable for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
