Frequently asked questions
Arctic Secrets escape room Ylläs

No need! You do not need any trivia knowledge, muscles or a supernatural brain.

Everything you need to play the game is found in the room.

Your Game Master will monitor your progress and give hints when needed.

However we do not recommend to play if you are very tired, and if you are drunk you will not be permitted to play at all.

The game itself will end in 60 minutes but it is good to reserve at least 20 minutes extra.

You should arrive 15 minutes early and after the game we are happy to give some feedback on your game.

Arctic Secrets escape rooms are not scary. The storyline might create some excitement though.

If your time ends before you have completed the room we are happy to show you the last bits of the game.

No one will be left in the room forever and you may also leave the room mid-game if you want to.

Children are welcome in our rooms. However we recommend that children are either babys that spend the game in their carrycot/baby carrier/your lap OR are at least 8 years old.

We do not recommend the rooms for toddlers since there may be items that are not suitable for small children. Also smaller children will not be able to participate in solving the puzzles.

Thank you for asking this important question! Please ask it at every escape room venue you visit.

The safety of our guests and our staff is our first priority. The room door can be opened from within the room at any point. Additionally we have added an extra emergency exit to both of our rooms. Our staff monitors every game and we have a fire extinguizer in the monitoring space just in case.

Arctic Secrets escape rooms fit 2-6 people. Usually the best group size would be 3-4 people but this is u to you. Our staff is happy to advise.
