What is the difference between choosing SPIRAL and JIGSAW when booking tickets?
Please note the SPIRAL and JIGSAW routes are not based on any specific film.
Both routes offer the same length and style of experience, where you will be faced with heartstopping and morally challenging tasks, decisions and consequences. However, the two routes differ in the locations you are taken and the challenges you face. Both have physical aspects and challenges.
The SPIRAL route includes tight and enclosed spaces, and requires players to crawl on their hands and knees.
The JIGSAW A route is designed to be more accessible and is suitable for wheelchair users.
Due to the layout of the games, we are unable to accommodate motorised wheelchairs or buggies.
Will the experience be different if I come for a second time?
All teams begin the experience together, so if you return for a second time there will be shared elements that you will experience again. However, the SPIRAL and JIGSAW routes offer two unique journeys once Jigsaw’s game begins, so we would strongly recommend you return and try the second route to fully immerse and test yourself at SAW: Escape Experience London.
What do the different teams mean?
All players begin the experience together as one large group. During the experience you will be split into (up to) four teams, as displayed when booking your tickets. Teams are made up of a maximum of 6 people, and you will complete the remaining journey in your team, leaving the others behind.
