Fox in a Box Escape Room
Fox in a Box has six escape rooms to choose from, all varying in theme and complexity. Can you prevent an all-out nuclear war in the Bunker?, find a cure in the Zombie Lab?, escape from the Zodiac Killer?, discover Tesla’s last invention before the FBI do?, or break out of one of two prison cells during a riot?!
Fox in a Box escape rooms are timed at 60 minutes with six participants to a room – or go head-to-head with a team of twelve to see who can escape their prison cell first. If you’re going in with teenagers or feel you may need a little help, you can ask for a few extra hints to be left in the room before you enter.
Fox in a Box is offering Families Magazine readers 20% off a booking for 2-12 children throughout June/July 2020. Enter or mention code FamiliesMagazine20 when booking to save!
