About eScape-room.UK

eScape-room.UK is a portal for online Escape Rooms developed by Learning Connections, a UK business which has been producing online education resources for over 20 years.

In 2020 we rebuilt Quest of Nine, a free mathematical problem-solving challenge aimed at providing revision materials for Year 7 pupils.

This process (and the Covid 19 lockdown) spurred the development of The Studio, our first problem-solving challenge aimed at adults. This was quickly followed by The Bunker and, most recently, The Beach. Other titles are currently under development.

eScape-room.UK challenges are best tackled by a group of three or more people using Zoom or a similar system, where one person can drive the game and share their screen with the rest of the group.

Although we are a UK-based business, the themes and references used in the challenges are universal.
