"We absolutely loved it!"

Sophie Davies-Jones, Children to Youth Team Leader, Holy Trinity Church, Eastbourne

"We have just completed the Around the World Escape Room with one of our groups and it was a big hit. They really enjoyed playing the game. It helped them explore working as a team and the tasks were varied enough, so that everyone in a team could contribute and take the lead. Competing timewise against other teams in the UK also made them feel part of something much bigger, which is important at this time of social isolation."

Mike Levy, Children and Youth Pastor, Thornbury Baptist Church, Bristol

"Brilliant resource! We loved playing it on Zoom. As a small church youth group, it's something we just couldn't do alone."

Ben Horrex, Assistant Minister (Youth), Lutterworth Church, Lutterworth

Based on Jules Verne's book, 'Around the world in 80 days'. Can you solve all nine puzzles to get Around the World in our Escape Room?

Designed by Louise Grainger, Michael Weatherall, Hannah Elphick, Eleanor Bristowe and Dave Thornton.

"A huge, huge thank you for the incredible “Around the World” Escape Room. It was absolutely brilliant. It worked very well for different age groups, was inclusive, easy-to-use and easy-to-run. Your website is an invaluable resource, and a real boost for us youth workers!"

Steve Conacher, Youth Pastor, Holy Trinity Church, Cambridge, UK

"We used this Escape Room for our gathering of families celebrating my son’s birthday by Zoom. It was great! There was a good level of challenge for all ages. It was straightforward to use with interesting and entertaining challenges. I’m now preparing to use Round the World 2 with our church youth group next week! Thanks guys!"

Kate Hamilton, Ministry Associate, Jersey Baptist Church

"After churches in Northern Ireland went into an unexpected lockdown, we needed something fun and quality to run with our teens, so we are grateful that your "Around the World" Escape Zoom was available. The young people had great fun competing against each other and it gave us an opportunity to share about the freedom we have in Jesus. Thanks for sharing this resource."

Johnny Bell, Director of Youth Ministry, Saintfield Road Presbyterian Church, Belfast
