What exactly is The Skurrilum?
The Skurrilum is a collection of FIVE unique and individual escape rooms in St Pauli that require teams to solve puzzles and riddles in order to ‘escape’ the room within a specific time. It offers a fun filled hour for groups of 2-8 people, and demands teamwork and logical thought.
How long does a game take?
A game at The Skurrilum lasts about 60 minutes. The resident game master will give an introductory five-minute briefing, before the game begins.
What does it look like in The Skurrilum?
Each of the rooms has been lavishly designed with an eye for detail and fun: whether you visit the Zoo of Death, Malvini’s Magic Chamber or Guchi’s Seedy Cellar – all the escape rooms are individually furnished and offer something for everyone.
Is it scary in The Skurrilum?
JDepending on the theme, it can get scary in the puzzle rooms. We work with light, sound effects, fog, as well as other state of the art stage props. In our pursuit of a rollercoaster experience we have included strobe effects to heighten the atmosphere in some of the rooms. Call us for more details.
I’m claustrophobic. Should I forget about wanting to play a game?
No. The Skurrilum venues have been created with usual space dimensions. Our guests are never really “locked up”. The front door to the game can also be used as an exit at any time, should a player feel uncomfortable. This has not happened so far.
Are the rooms suitable for all players?
Yes. The games “Malvinis Legacy” & “Guschi’s Seedy Cellar” are free of restrictions. However, if you have any questions or concerns, please discuss them before the game with our staff so that we can make any necessary preparations. “The Phantom Island” & “Ghost Hunter Ernie Hudson” do have some restrictions and are not suitable for physically disabled persons or very large people. We reserve the right to refuse entry to any of the games.
I want to take my kids with me. What should I pay attention to?
We recommend the escape rooms in the Skurrilum for families with children 9 years onwards. Groups of children from 10 years onwards can even play “The Phantom Island” room without adult accompaniment. There is a special children’s version of the game for this event.
I want to organize a children’s birthday in the Skurrilum. Is that possible?
Yes, we offer the escape room “The Phantom Island” exclusively for children’s birthdays, with a maximum of six players. This can be arranged on request under firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Skurrilum is suitable for persons from 8-99 years (except the escape room “Guschi’s Seedy Cellar – access 18 years). Children and adolescents under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult or bring a declaration of consent. The prerequisite for participation in the Skurrilum is a booking via the online booking system or an e-mail to our management. The booker must be at least 18 years old at the time of booking. Bookings are accepted on the condition that all participants are able to meet the physical and psychological needs of the attraction. If visitors have medical problems, they should notify our staff before the game starts. The Skurrilum reserves the right to prohibit access to the premises without further explanation e.g. if visitors are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Each participant should arrive at the venue at least 10 minutes before the booked time, so that our staff can go through an introduction to the game rooms with all the players. The Skurrilum is a live event where the rooms are prepared for each booking and are only reserved for the booked period. Delays and shifts of the game start are therefore not possible. Each participant accepts the terms and conditions of Skurrilum. All games commence at the booked time. If the participants are unwilling to accept the game rules, the games cannot begin. A claim for reimbursement of the participation fee will be waived. Each participant is required to fully comply with the Laws of the Game. A breach of the rules leads to the immediate expulsion of the participant, or the game may be aborted. A claim for reimbursement of the participation fee does not exist in this case either.
It is not permitted to bring food and drinks into the escape rooms or to consume food and drinks in the venue. Smoking is prohibited in all areas of the venue.
