Can You Escape? - York

Can You Escape? is York's award-winning escape room experience, based right in the heart of the city on Micklegate, and proudly named as Visit York's Best Newcomer in 2017!

We have two top rated missions, Operation Lone Eagle and Operation H.E.R.O., meaning we can take groups of up to 17 agents at a time and start you all together in a race to the finish.

We like to make our rooms challenging but fun so that those who escape know they've performed like top class agents or cadets. Our completion rate is around 50-60% so success is by no way guaranteed. Choose carefully when gathering your team, and we hope to see you soon to find out if you have what it takes to beat the clock!

Went as part of a group of five beginners and did the Hero themed room. Challenging but thoroughly enjoyable, and we will definitely be returning to try the other room. Really impressive setup and Agent Adder was so friendly, encouraging, and really put us at ease.

A group of 15 of us did the 3 Escape rooms at the same time as part of my daughter’s hen weekend. It was the first time many of us had tried an escape room but we all had a fantastic time. It was difficult enough to be challenging but was also a lot of fun. We’d definitely recommend it.
