In 2018 Paul and Kim Ramm proudly opened SCRAMM Live Escape rooms in Banbury to give the Banbury community and surrounding areas something fun to do.
SCRAMM stands for Solving Clues Riddles And Much More.
SCRAM means to get away, get out quickly.
and the clever bit… SCRAMM encorporates their surname!
Live Escape rooms combine puzzles and teamwork in 60 minutes to get out of a locked room. Keep reading for more details about this exciting game.
There are many Escape Games run online or PC-s or mobile apps. The aim is to escape – survive – from a themed room/house/warehouse.
Live escape games are are the next level, making these fun in real life.
You don’t have to go too far if you would like to play a quality Escape game. You can find us locally in Banbury. This will be the most intense, pressure inducing 60 minutes you’ll ever spend in one room.
The theory in a nutshell in an Escape Game: Put the players into a situation, which is well-organised, consciously constructed where they have no idea how the objects are connected to each other. When they start to find clues and start to find out what to do with them, they “flow” towards to the next puzzle by themselves without any help.
The constructors of the game have a hard job because there are no two same people in the world with the same mind, but they have to create the rooms easy enough to let the players get a sense of achievement as they progress to deal with the range of emotions throughout the game- excitement, success and at times feeling frustrated and a bit lost. Everyone’s different and everyone will step into different roles.
Individual roles is another side to the game as you will see people’s true personalities when placed under pressure. Will they be the leader, follower, sceptic, optimist or the one encouraging everyone else?
Every one of our games rooms has cameras and microphone; the game-masters can lead you from their station or can stop trouble before it happens. You have a panic button in the room that you are able to press anytime you want it.
This is an absolutely harmless game as we call it “this is an organised stress and laugh event”.
And finally who is this activity recommended for? Basically to everyone over 18, however this is very good for children over 10 with an accompanying adult. One of the best short term event for friends, families, colleagues, team builders. Everyone!
