Frequently Asked Questions

How often do you update the rooms? ▼

We never stop working to improve our rooms and are constantly making small adjustments to ensure they are as much fun as possible. However the majority of the puzzles stay the same so if you've already played a room we recommend trying one of our other games.

Do we share the room with other groups? ▼

No! The only people in your room will be your group.

Is it safe? ▼

YES! Our goal is for you to be and feel safe during your visit with us and we have an exemplary safety record. Our gamemasters will receive you, and supervise your game from start to finish via camera/microphone, both to ensure your safety and guide you during gameplay as necessary.

Is the room locked? ▼

You are always able to leave the room without outside assistance. Not all escape rooms have a “locked door”, in cases where they do there will also be a clearly marked emergency key for use in an emergency situation.

Do I need to speak Norwegian to play? ▼

No, we have designed the games in such a way that it is playable by both Norwegian and English speakers.

Can I place multiple bookings at the same time? ▼

Of course! The way to do this is the same way that you would make a single booking, i.e. by clicking this link

Can we be more people in the room than it is designed for? ▼

Please contact us at if you'd like to book for a larger group.

We wish to visit Escape Bryggen outside of regular opening hours. Is this possible? ▼

Please send us an email at, and we will do our best to accommodate your needs!

Will it be scary? ▼

Our Varg Veum room contains some adult elements but is not scary in any fashion. The other rooms are not intended to be scary.

How should we dress for this? ▼

There are no special recommendations for this, you can wear what you like. You can even come wearing clown outfits if you want to.

What are the age limits? Can pregnant women play? How about wheelchair users? ▼

This takes place under safe conditions, so all age groups can participate (though our Varg Veum room is recommended for adults due to some of its themes). Children under the age of 15 need adult supervision. The puzzles themselves are likely to be too difficult for children under the age of ten. At Bryggen we do not have the ability to receive customers in wheelchairs; we are not on the ground floor and do not have an elevator. If you have other special requirements, feel free to contact us, and we will try to find a solution that will work for you.

Is it possible to purchase gift cards? ▼

What do I do if the gift card expires before I am able to play? ▼

As long as the gift card itself is used before the expiry date, the date of the booking itself can be made for a later time, even after the expiry date. The expiry date on the gift card itself cannot be changed, but the booking date can be moved. Expired gift cards cannot be refunded.
