Terms and Conditions
TIMETRAP ESCAPE ROOMS TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The terms and conditions set out below are binding for all ticket purchases sold by TimeTrap Escape Rooms (hereafter also referred to as ‘us’ ‘our’ and ‘we’). Please read and understand them. It is the responsibility of the purchaser, that is, the person first named on the booking (hereafter ‘you’ and ‘your’) to make sure that the team, that is, all those that attend the experience, also read and understand these conditions. The purchaser is also wholly responsible for all team members aged under 16 and their actions.
Any reference to ‘you’ or ‘your’ includes the first named person on the booking and all persons on whose behalf a booking is made or any other person to whom a booking is added or transferred.
All interpretations of the following terms and conditions shall be at the sole and absolute discretion of TimeTrap Escape Rooms.
These terms and conditions and any contract concluded incorporating these terms and conditions shall be governed by English law and all disputes shall be submitted to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
By confirming your booking, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
1.1. Nothing in these terms and conditions is intended to affect your statutory rights.

If you or any member of your party has a medical problem or disability which may be affected by this, please contact us before booking and we will endeavour to accommodate your party to the best of our abilities. If we are not able to accommodate you, we may not be able to confirm a booking with you.

If no appropriate date and time can be found, we reserve the right to cancel the booking.
5.3. As this is a live event, your experience will run from the time specified at booking whether the entire team is present or not. If late, you will be given the choice to complete your experience for the amount of time remaining but will not be allowed to overrun. No refunds will be given in this circumstance. It is your responsibility to ensure you arrive on time.

Such events may include war or threat of war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events outside our control.
