New & improved 'day trip to France' experience in the UK

Our popular Escape Room experience has been upgraded to include even more activities so that your whole class can enjoy a ‘day trip to France’ experience without leaving the UK.

The previous Escape Room game was conducted in a large circus tent, and praise from teachers and students aside, the setup and dismantling required more work than expected. With so many schools still eager to take part, we've improved the product to make the process simpler for schools and have packed even more language activities into the sessions—supercharging students' learning.

Instead of an in-school experience, the new Escape Room will be one element of a French immersion roadshow, which will tour central locations around the country. The idea is that a whole class or year group will travel to the venue and take part in a series of French Language immersion activities, including the Escape Room, over a whole morning or afternoon. The activities would be hosted by our animateurs from France and would be in situ for a week at each venue.

Coming to a town near you this Spring!

We plan to have the upgraded experience ready for the Spring term. To register your interest, and to make a case for us to visit your area first, please complete the form.


The story

The premise of the game is that students are at the French border waiting to return home, but there’s one problem... their passports are locked in a safe! The clock is ticking and students have 30 minutes to find the key to the safe before the ferry departs without them. In order to escape the room students will need to work as a team, using their French language and problem-solving skills to solve a trail of fun puzzles and uncover hidden clues. Think your school is up to the challenge?

What's included

  • 3 hours of language immersion—morning or afternoon session
  • A trained native-speaking French animateur to lead all activities
  • Certificates and stickers for students
  • Return coach transport
  • Optional lunch add-on
