About
Unfortunately Covid hit us hard. We hope to one day return in a brand new location with brand new experiences. Please note that Feline Fiasco our brand new game, has fortunately been rescued (along with all of our cats), by another Escape Room company in Maidstone, please keep your eyes peeled for its revival! :) MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who came and enjoyed playing with us. We sincerely had the best time ever running games for you and meeting all you wonderful people. The decision we took to close for the foreseeable was super tough and broke our hearts... however... WE WILL BE BACK! :)

A brilliant experience - visited with two families and all ages enjoyed a challenging hour getting out of the Zombie Apocalypse (our ages from 9-49).

Friendly staff, really nice people and helpfully they adapted to our own slightly stop/start progress. The escape rooms were not too easy and not too hard, so we had a great time thinking, unthinking, doing and teaming to get through. Props were great and very creatively done without compromising on the challenge.

Well recommended and also really amazed they opened up for us on New Year’s Eve - thank you!

We visited in a group of 5 - 4 adults and a 12 year old to play feline fiasco. This room was a labour of love for the owners and the attention to detail is brilliant. I played their other room previously as well, along with a few other escape rooms in the area. Feline fiasco is the best. So original and the puzzles were varied and brilliant. The premise is you have to save all the cats, as well as escape the room within the time limit. This makes it different from all the other escape rooms I've done. This is a really fresh approach and the puzzles were very well thought out. Lots of space for all 5 of us to solve things so we weren't all trying to work on the same thing at the same time. Highly, highly recommend either of the rooms from this escape room but especially feline fiasco :) thank you guys, brilliant day out. Also to add, one of our group has additional medical needs and Chris and Alistair couldn't have been more accommodating to make sure that the room was suitable for his needs.

Recently visited Kent and tried out both rooms Real Life Games has to offer and wow! - we were so pleased we had made the journey. Extinction is fun, full of unique, challenging puzzles and manages to make, what can sometimes be a pretty standard theme, refreshing and enjoyable. Their second room, Feline Fiasco, is incredible. Unlike any escape room we have done, full of humour and colour, but still containing strong puzzles and challenges. I want to do the room again!! Would recommend to beginners or enthusiasts alike. Thanks Chris for having us :)

Played Feline Fiasco; and it was just amazing. Fantastic set with so much detail, creativity and thought put into it. The puzzles were genius and well thought out. It kept us busy for the whole duration and there was never a dull moment. Well done guys, would highly recommend!

Came here with a group of colleagues from work. It was a really enjoyable afternoon. Just the right level of difficulty - challenged us nearly up to the limit, but we did it!

We arrived early for our allocated time, but were greeted at the door by the owner and “Game Master”. He was clearly an Escape room enthusiast and proud of Real Life Games Extinction room.
We are experienced players of Escape rooms, this was number 17, but this room was not easy. We escaped with only 2.5 minutes to spare! The room could be described as traditional with very few “gadgets” or automation which fits well with the games theme. The room played smoothly and flowed well from one puzzle to the next, and contained some puzzle types we had not seen before demonstrating the depth of thought that went into the design of this very good room.

Unlike some rooms this is not a dark and scary room, I would highly recommend this room for all levels of players.

We look forward to the second room opening at Real Life Games.

This was an amazing event
I'd read reviews about how good it was and how helpful and organised the host was but after enjoying this the reviews sldobt don't really do justice
The hosts was really amazing, especially as it was our first time. You can tell he enjoys his job, always smiling and excited.... Faultless

The game itself was out of this world, we didn't know what to expect, but after a few mins we were hooked and definitely will try other room around Kent

It was a very hard room, so if you've never done these I suggest you try a easier room before attempting this. .... Unless you enjoy jumping in the deep end!

Let's give these guys credit - they've created an escape room in addition to holding down day jobs, so it's still a hobby thing for them. Unfortunately, that shows a bit in the room itself - it's pretty good, but the theme feels a bit home-made, some of the puzzles are brilliant and some are frustratingly poorly thought-out. It's certainly worth a visit if you're in the area and at a loose end, but i wouldn't go out of my way to get there.

Thank you so much for your review. We are sorry however that you thought the experience was only worth 3 stars. Whilst it is true we have set this business up from scratch whilst holding other jobs, we have still built this through pure passion and love for what we do. We have put everything we had into making this the best experience possible. The room is indeed homemade, we built the walls ourselves and personally designed every single puzzle so we could be completely original with our ideas and provide players with a unique and outstanding experience. This is in no way a hobby for us at all, it is at the forefront of our everyday lives and we spend most of our time working on this even with full time jobs. Our aim is to create something amazing for everyone to enjoy, and we are so grateful and humbled that people recognise this and feed it back to us in all of their lovely reviews and after game debriefing. We do very much appreciate your feedback and would love to speak to you over the phone or via email about any ways in which we can improve our business. If you could spare some time to get in touch that would be greatly appreciated. Please call us on 07377805814 or email us at contact@reallifegames.co.uk Kind regards Chris

We had a brilliant time at the new Escape Room in Ramsgate. There were 4 adults and 1 10 year old clever clogs. The set up was great and we had to tear around trying to save the world - fortunately our 10 year old was clever enough to do it. The tests were quite difficult and there were some really great surprises. Its suitable for adults and bright younger ones. They will be doing some scary ones in the future, so it is worthwhile checking suitability first. We all came out feeling psyched up and can't wait for the next challenge!
