Our Story

From the humble beginnings of the UK’s first container-based Escape Room to working international projects in Chile and Portland for Challenger Escapes it has been quite the ride. And we’re just getting started.

Founder Jamie was on a trip to Budapest when he realised that Escape Experiences offered routes into participants’ consciousness that more conventional events cannot, this coupled with a background in Army led to the development of Challenger Escapes’ first experience HEIST! – a completely unique Escape Room which toured the UK earning plaudits in both regional and national news.

As we understood more about the value of Escape and Problem-Solving experiences we began to expand our offering – we thought about the difference between being handed a sample or earning it? Or of learning a brand story through immersion, rather than simply being told.

We wanted to re-imagine what an Escape Room could be and our collaboration with Dyson gave us the opportunity to push this into the public domain.

With more 500,000 worldwide views and thousands of participants taking part from across the business our Project Dyson; the Escape Room activation set the foundations for a variety of projects within the business.

From Dyson to Chile as the Challenger Escapes team worked to deliver a portable Escape Experience which toured shopping malls throughout the country, generating footfall and driving social media impact.

Since then we’ve worked with a huge range of brands including Aviation Gin, Samsung and essence to deliver experiences which have been featured in The Times and London Evening Standard.
