The “Fresh” Way To Experience A Birmingham Escape Room
Time to think outside the box, Birmingham - your escape rooms have never looked anything like this!
For too long, Birmingham's curious, quick-witted and creative brains have been trapped behind doors, confined to opening hours, and incarcerated within four walls.
But not anymore!
Prepare to take on new challenges, puzzles and tricksome riddles with an outdoor escape room game that takes you further than you’ve ever been before into Birmingham’s many mysteries…
At CityDays, we create escape rooms in Birmingham and around the world that reveal more than just your competitive streak.
You still get all the puzzles, riddles, cryptic clues and challenges of a traditional escape room – but instead of being cooped up inside, we take the games outdoors.
No doors. No ceilings. No specific time slots. No hassle. That’s the CityDays way!
Urban Escape Rooms Birmingham: An Outdoor Extravaganza
As you can probably tell, our Birmingham escape rooms are a bit different to what you might have played before.
First things first, our escape rooms in Birmingham are played outdoors.
How does that work, you might wonder? Well, we’ll tell you. Here are the main benefits of our outdoor Birmingham escape rooms…
Your Escape “Room” is Bigger:
When you aren’t confined to just one room or building, the world really does become your oyster. Instead of being locked up in a tiny space, we get you racing through Birmingham’s city streets filled with hidden secrets, odd passageways and murky mysteries!
More Freedom: Since we don’t physically occupy a building, we won’t restrict you to opening hours or available booking slots. You decide when you play - not us (although we do recommend playing during daylight hours. Some of our clues can be difficult to spot when it’s dark!). Otherwise, it’s entirely up to you.
Play With Who You Want: Again, the city is your playground so whether you want to play on your own or with five hundred (or even more!) people, we can accommodate you! For groups of over 8 people, we recommend splitting into teams and going head-to-head - it makes it more fun if everyone can read the clues and hey, we love a competitive element…
Just reach out if you need a hand!
Anyone Can Play: People of all ages from all walks of life have enjoyed our escape room games, and we’re looking forward to adding your team name to our roster. Kids, dogs, grandparents and even hard-to-please teens can get involved in the chase - as long as there’s a responsible adult in the team!
A Varied Selection of Puzzles: Who knew that Birmingham was so “riddled” with mysteries? Well, we did. And you’re about to find out! You’ll encounter puzzles, riddles, tasks and challenges on our routes that have been designed to get you observing and interacting with your surroundings in a unique way.
How CityDays’ Outdoor Escape Rooms in Birmingham Work
Since our Birmingham escape “rooms” are held outdoors, they’re “built” slightly differently. After all, since there are no physical barriers to get through or doors to unlock, you might be wondering what the object of the game is…
Well, it’s really very simple.
You and your team start at a chosen location (depending on which trail you pick).
From there, you have to complete a set of tasks, puzzles and riddles, deciphering clues to take you to your next location, sent to your phone(s) via WhatsApp. If you don’t give us the right answer, you can’t move on in the game!
When you’ve sent us the correct answer, you’ll be given new clues and challenges to lead you to your next destination. Each location is located a short walking distance away, and may require you to keep your eyes peeled for possible clues along the way…
Once you’ve answered all our clues, visited all the destinations and completed the trail, we’ll tally up your score. This is based on how many correct answers you got, any time penalties you accrued, and how many hints you asked for.
All you need to play our games is a phone with WhatsApp installed, access to cellular data and a pair of comfy shoes. That’s it!
Any questions? Here’s how it works.
