Why not create a positive experience for your young people and their friends online with an Escape Room? Only one tiny bit of preparation needed (which will take you about 30 seconds). All instructions included. Just download two documents, add a phone number and go.

“Just wanted to say a big thank you for your online escape room! I used it with my youth group last night, and they all seemed to enjoy it and have fun! A very well-organised and well-written resource that I will definitely be using again!!!”

“Thank you to all those involved in putting the escape room together. We’ve just run it with the youth group here (fortunately, Vicar Ron Sou was successfully freed by both teams in the time limit). One of the young people instructed me to thank you and all others involved in putting it together - certainly gets a five star rating from St. Andrews!"

"A huge, huge thank you for the incredible “Around the World” Escape Room. We ran it with a bunch of the young people from Holy Trinity Church in Cambridge this Saturday, it was absolutely brilliant. It worked very well for different age groups, was inclusive, easy-to-use and easy-to-run. Thank you so much for saving my team lots of time so that they could focus on getting to know the young people and creating an atmosphere of fun and welcome - it is so generous of you to make these kinds of resources available to anyone. Your website is an invaluable resource, and a real boost for us youth workers!"

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

"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."
