Getaway Room Escape

In the basement of Puutalo situates Getaway Room Espace’s newest branch. From there you can find two escape rooms, Finlayson’s Electric Light and Smugglers. The third espace room will be opening in the year 2024.

The themes of the escape rooms are, as usual for Getaway, inspired by Tampere and its events and places. 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.

Getaway Room Escape’s entrance is on the left side of the PSTA restaurant’s entrance.
