Escape Room Game – The ultimate Christmas Party

Be different this year and book an Escape Room Game – Christmas Party.

I know – How dare we say the ‘C’ Word already – Christmas!

The office team party, the annual family meet up or just a catch up with friends. But what to do and where to go?

Well this year why not make it a Christmas Party to remember and book an Escape Room Game this December?

Escape Room Games are fun for all. Giving you a great start to an evening of fun and leaving you with lots of things to talk about over a glass of mulled wine or two after!

We are all so used to the same thing every year for the annual ‘Christmas Party’ be it a few drinks down the local or a meal.

From a business perspective this is the event that all staff look forward to! Knowing that the boss is paying and it is time to break up for a well deserved few days off. Booking an escape room game for a Christmas party actually allows your staff to still feel the same although as a bonus makes them work as a team and have a little fun along the way!

In essence booking an escape room game as the Christmas Party this year can double up as a Corporate Team Building Event and Christmas Party, potentially without your staff even realizing it.

At Escape Time we can cater for a booking of up to 18 people with our three themed escape rooms (The Bank Heist, Sam’s Saloon, The Chocolate Factory). To top it all off being located in Sutton Coldfield (around 15 minutes from Birmingham Town Centre) we are perfectly located for you to continue your Christmas Party into the night.

Fancy some food or drinks after your escape room game experience? You will find the following literally on our door step:

Frankie & Benny’s
The Beggars Bush Pub – Flaming Grill
An abundance of top-notch Curry Houses

Want to continue the party into the night? Then a short taxi or bus into Sutton Coldfield town centre or Birmingham will leave you with plenty of options for you to strut your stuff on the dance floor or hit the bar for a few well earned beers!!

Ready to book your Escape Room Game Christmas Party? We are ready to lock you away for an hour and see if you can escape in time!


The Chocolate Factory - Escape Time - Sutton Coldfield - Birmingham

Chocolate Factory Escape Room Game to open in Sutton Coldfield!

Pure Imagination – to become reality in Chocolate Factory Escape Room Game

The long anticipated wait for a third game to arrive at Escape Time – Sutton Coldfield is here!

For sure we all love a bit of chocolate and with Cadbury World just on the other side of Birmingham – Chocoholics are in for a real sweet treat as Escape Time are pleased to be bringing a new escape game to Birmingham which will definitely leave you wanting to be locked back in for another hour!

Most people would love to be locked in a room full of chocolate and not let out. However unless you can fix the Chocolate Machine within the hour then unfortunately there will be no chocolate to share!

The Chocolate Factory - Escape Time - Sutton Coldfield - Birmingham

The backstory to the room is that the Chocolate Factory has malfunctioned and has run out of ingredients. The problem is the owner is away on holiday leaving you an hour to find all the ingredients locked away and to fix the machine in time before we run out of stock. Will you be able to keep your cool and keep the customers happy by finding the ingredients and fixing the machine in time?

The chocolate factory escape room game is definitely one for all the family. Advanced bookings are now being taken for the highly anticipated opening of 1st November 2017. (Click here to Book Now)

Can’t wait until November to play an escape room game in Birmingham? Then why not try The Bank Heist or Sam’s Saloon and book now to get your taste buds warmed up!

Adding a third room to the Sutton Coldfield site now allows Escape Time to cater for groups of up to 18 people at a time. Escape Room Games are perfect for Corporate Events, Stag & Hen Parties & Birthday Parties.

As Willy Wonka would say “Welcome my friends. Welcome to my chocolate factory.”

Walsall Football Club Team building event

Walsall Football Club youth team players visit Escape Time for team building afternoon

Walsall Football Club Youth Team

With our weekend bookings being full of families and friends, here at Escape Time we tend to find we host a lot of corporate team building events for our live escape room games during the working week of Monday-Friday.

Yesterday saw us welcome Walsall Football Club’s youth team to finish off their pre-season training with an afternoon of team building and bonding before their first game kicks off on Saturday away at Shrewsbury Town.

With a total of 22 players and a mixture of first and second years of the Walsall football club academy in attendance, Graham Biggs & Kyle Kirby (management) had split the team up into small teams to see how well they had got to know each other over the past few weeks of pre-season.

Management observed the games from our control area which allowed them to gain a valuable insight into how the players worked both as individuals and as a team.

As with all our corporate team building events we always provide a full briefing and de-brief making sure that key points are evaluated and that both as an individual and also as a team something has been gained from their experience of playing a live escape room game.

For Graham (team manager) he wanted to end the pre-season on a week of fun for his team but also making sure that the players gained something from it. Players were asked a series of questions after during the debrief about what they had took from the experience as an individual and as a team and what they could take from the experience onto the pitch for the new football season.

Key points that players made included the following:


We wish Walsall Football Club youth team every success for the season and look forward to hearing how they finish up at the end of season.

Prices start from £15.00 per person and further information on our packages for team building events can be found here.
