What is Bolt Escape Games Dublin?

Bolt Escape Games Dublin is a fun packed game suited for groups of between 2 - 14 people. Your team is locked in one of our rooms (Casino Heist & Dressing Room Drama) and the target is to escape within 60 minutes. You will only complete the challenge by working with your team and trying to decipher puzzles, find keys and discover codes. It is an extremely fun and challenging activity for people of all ages and abilities.
