HOW IT ALL STARTED

Garf went across the European continent and ended up in a little known city called Amsterdam. Through searching high and low what things to do there (other than the usual), we came across a place called Sherlocked and had the absolute best time there. From that day on, Garf wanted his own escape room game.

So, he went back to the UK and told his partner, Nicole, and she was ready to give it a go. Then, with a couple of adventurous friends, we played an escape room in Orlando and everyone was hooked. 30 or so escape rooms and lots of research later, the team set up the UK’s most extensive escape game directory, www.escapegamehub.com. Through working together on EscapeGameHub, they believed they had the passion and knowledge to put together an escape room worthy of adventure and fun. An immersive, theatrical show now named Other World Escapes.

THE TEAM

GARETH is our managing director, a chap who loves to innovate and has a penchant for digital marketing. Being an E-Marketing lecturer at the University of West Indies, Garf wants to bring escape rooms to the forefront. Escape rooms are a great fun thing to do in Southampton.

NICOLE THOMPSON-VASSEL, our creative director, has years of experience in quantity surveying, customer service, marketing and planning. Also, she also has a specialised skill in putting together unique and diverse puzzles that really get the cogs working. Nicole raises the bar for quality escape rooms in the UK, urging owners and designers to think outside of the box when designing their games. She is a genius gamesmaster and provides the true level of immersion that escape room enthusiasts are yearning for.
