Looking for an escape room in English in Bordeaux ?

Bordeaux is known for the beauty of its city centre (la place de la Bourse, le Miroir d’eau, la Grosse Cloche) and for the international reputation of its wine industry. More and more tourists are attracted by this city every year. But not all of them speak French ! If you are one of them and looking for an original experience during a rainy day, why don’t you try an Escape Room in English in Bordeaux ?

What’s an escape room ?

An escape room is an immersive game where you are locked with your team in a room with a specific theme. Your main objective is escape the room in less than 60 minutes by solving puzzles. 

Englis people call it “escape romm” but it is also called “Escape game” in France, or “quest” in Eastern Europe.

Do I need special knowledges to play an escape room ?

Absolutely not ! You really don’t need to be a mathematics genius or the king of general culture. You will only need observation and collaboration. All the clues needed to solve the puzzles are in the room; they just need to be uncovered. You will not have to use physical strength and you will not have to jump or climb to reach something. 

If you feel blocked, a Game Master can decide to help you during the game. The Game Master will see you and hear you thanks to cameras, so he will not be in the room with you.

What can of theme can I select ?

Most of the theme are inspired by movies or series : Harry Potter, Prison Break, horror movies…

Goodlock escape Bordeaux is one of the few where can you play in English. The most important element inside the room will be translated and the the Game Master will interact with you in English. They propose three different themes inspired by the movies “Seven“, “The Hangover” and “The Godfather“.
