What is Fox in a Box?

Fox in a Box by Room Escape is a themed real-life room escape game where participants use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzle, find clues, and achieve a mission within 60 minutes.

How much does it cost?

Fox in a Box prices start at 15€ per person and vary depending on team sizes. Please have a look at booking to find out more. Please also be aware that Fox In a Box is a live event and therefore once the booking is confirmed, refunds are not accepted. We accept all major credit cards or bank transfers.

Do I need a good level of Spanish / English?

In Fox in a Box we offer our games in English and Spanish. It is true that once inside the room you can speak any language, but for the introduction in which we give instructions about the game, and for the interaction with our Game Masters during the game, knowledge of English or Spanish by at least one member of the group (and if possible by all players) will be necessary. Remember this point, it could be very important for your game.

What time do I need to arrive?

Please arrive on time for your game, that means same time as your booked slot (have a look at the emails we sent you in case of doubting). The game itself, down in the cellar, lasts 60 minutes. There will be some intro to brief the instructions and, after the game, we will take your picture and talk about your game as long as you want. The whole experience lasts about 80-105 minutes. Bear in mind that if you come late you will cause delays for other teams, which is not cool. And, if you come way before, you may have to wait at the pub while others groups are leaving the premises.(Pubs in Spain are nice and cheap, lucky you :-) )

How many games are there?

Total: 7 rooms. We have 2 rooms in our ancient cellar: The Bunker and The Zombie Lab. And 5 more rooms in our first floor at Cuesta de Santo Domingo. Our themes fit from 2 to 12 people. But playing at the same time? 42 pax.

Accessibility and special requirements

Due to be located in an old building there is no wheelchair access to our place. Pregnant women can fully enjoy our games, as they are not physically challenging and there are no fear factors involved(well, the Zombie Lab is... zombie). There are also seats in the room if a team member needs to rest for a while. Rooms will be also prepared, in the near future, for hearing impairment people.

What room should I play first?

Our games are complicated but possible! In case you have never played a escape room game before, we recommend our wonderful Bunker or our Prison, although this does not mean that they are easy, in Fox we love challenges. If on the contrary you think that you are experts escapists we recommend you to try our Zombie Laboratory! A classic among our rooms but a very interesting experience ....

Are we really locked in the rooms?

Fox in a Box has taken the live room escape to the next level. In our rooms Bunker, Zombie Lab and Bank you need to complete a specific task within 60 minutes; the main door is actually unlocked the whole time. But in the Prision and Zodiac Killer the doors are blocked because of the theme of the game. Nevertheless those rooms have a panic button that can be pressed in case someone need it. Claustrophobic people can enjoy our games and leave at any time if they choose to do so, we have had many claustrophobics but our games are do much fun that they never want to leave! People with medical conditions can also visit the restrooms during the game.

Team sizes

We recommend the teams to be between 3 and 6 players with four being the optimum number. In case you are more than 6 you can book one of our double rooms (Prison or Zodiac Assassin) and make a full competition, not only against time but against your friends!

How to get to us?

We have two different locations in Madrid center: Bunker and Zombie Lab are located at Calle Infantas 25, 28004. Right in the heart of Madrid. Own transport: Undergound parking 50m away. Plaza Vázquez de Mella. Also available on the street with a parking meter. Underground: Gran Via station or Chueca. Prision, Zodiac Killer and Bank are located at Cuesta de Santo Domingo 24. In Santo domingo square. Underground: Santo Domingo or Callao.

Age limits

The minimum age to play on their own is 15, each members of the team should be 15 or over. Younger children are welcome with their parents.

What is the neighbourhood like?

Both the Chueca neighborhood where our Bunker and Laboratory are and the Plaza de Santo Domingo are located in the center of Madrid, two minutes from Gran Vía. We are surrounded by pubs and restaurants where you can find everything from traditional bars to great roof top terraces. However, we must inform you that the escape room activity is not compatible with alcohol. Therefore, in case of excessive use of this within the group, we may be force to cancel your game without refund.

Can we come with kids?

Kids as young as 4 have played our games with parents but they can’t contribute to the team. They still love the scenery. The main reason of this limit is the complexity of the game. In case that at any time the kid don't want to keep playing and would like to go out of the room or even not to play at all, they will need to be always with a adult. Our games are difficult and some of them like the Zombie Lab or the Zodiac Killer can be quite stressful for kids. If you are coming with kids we recomend you the Bunker or the Prision Break.
