About

Have you ever dreamt of playing in a soft-play area as a full-grown adult? We certainly have. With your help, we can build it. 

From the team that bought you two world-class, immersive 5-star escape roomsPLAY will be the WORLD'S FIRST Full Soft-Play Escape Room - a cheeky blend of obstacles, puzzles, Artificial Intelligence, adaptive story, nostalgia, fun, and excitement for all ages. 

INTRODUCING: PLAY!

Once upon a time, there was a quaint town called Playsville. It was powered by over-sized inflatable bananas using a banana-power-rama device. The people of Playsville used this device to create all the wonderful things we see around us: gumdrops, rainbows, unicorns. Playsville was a lovely quiet place with beautiful inflatable palm trees and fields of lush, plush fruit. 

Until ...

...the dastardly Executive saw an alternative use for the banana-power-rama... 

...You must stop her and save the town of Playsville from it's impending blackout. This is Bananageddon! 

OBSTACLES

PLAY will have loads of awesome stuff: rope swings, rollers, climbing ropes, secret hatches, ball pits, slides, travelators. Working together with a market-leading soft play manufacturer, we can create the fun stuff that other escape rooms only dream of. Climbing is encouraged. Let's make you a Gladiator!

PUZZLES

Tons of hand-built, interactive and challenging puzzles to get the brain going. We pride ourselves on making unique and challenging puzzles and have 3 years experience doing it. We like to break a mental sweat too!

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Interact with Brenda the Vendor - a supportive and motherly Artificial Intelligence vending machine. Brenda will be a completely unique hint system for players to interact with during the PLAY experience. She will be built by our in-house robotics engineers. Give her tokens to get a hint and a treat. None left? Just be nice to her and she may still help you. She loves cake. The cake should not be a lie.

AUTOMATION

Arduinos, Raspberry Pis, Sensors: Bespoke electronics behind-the-scenes that make it a truly automated and interactive adventure for that true WOW factor. Our electronics experts and designers will create bespoke technology and systems only available in the PLAY experience. Awesomeness included!

ADAPTIVE STORY

All our escape rooms come with a short story that adapts to how you play the room. Escape or not, the ending to your story will change. You dictate how the story will end. 

REALISTIC SET DESIGN

Immersive and authentic sets, room aromas and atmosphere that will make you feel part of the story. We have the skills and knowledge to create amazing immersive experiences with realistic set design. Below are photos of our two current immersive adventures. An adventure with YOU at the centre.

WHY SHOULD YOU BACK US?

The proof is in the pudding (and track record). We have hand-crafted 2 5-star escape rooms, loved by many. Check out our reviews on TripAdvisor, Facebook and Google to see for yourself. 

GOT SOME BURNING QUESTIONS?

Well, we want to make sure we answer them FAST. Contact the team on our live chat function over at www.otherworldescapes.com (7 Days: 10am - 10pm) for any burning questions. 

Risks and challenges

Our team has already built 2 awesome, 5-star adventures, and we will be building 5 more this year. Check out our TripAdvisor reviews to see what people think. Just search "Other World Escapes".

The build of the PLAY experience should be fairly simple. We have the smarts, the experience and people behind us to bring this wonderful creation to life. However, it doesn't happen overnight. The build of the game should take around 4 months from start to finish. This is so we can build all the lovely electronics, and fun stuff that will make it an awesomely automated and exciting adventure for everyone.
