The historic Puutalo is a former railway workers’ residential building from the 20th century. Puutalo was designed by the chief architect of The Finnish Railroad Board, Bruno Granholm, who also designed the Tavara-asema located next door. You can find many similar wooden station buildings like the Puutalo around Finland. There is new life breathed into Puutalo once again with various operations.

Getaway Room Escape

The basement of the Puutalo turns into a scene of riddles, puzzles, and unforgettable adventures when Getaway Room Escape opens a new location and three escape rooms in the old Puutalo. The new escape rooms are Tampere-themed, and they will open gradually during 2023.

The themes of the escape rooms are, as usual for Getaway, inspired by Tampere and its events and places. The first of the escape rooms will open its doors to the public in June. Players can travel to the year 1882 when the first electric light in the Nordic countries was turned on at the Finlayson area in Tampere. We have designed the escape rooms in such a way that new experiences and surprises are in store for beginners as well as escape room veterans,
says Getaway Room Escape’s operational manager Arlene Ojala.
