Escape Room – Joensuu

Pakotarinat Joensuu

Pakotarinat Joensuu offers immersive and unique escape games and exciting Virtual Reality experiences. We are the only escape room company in Joensuu that doesn’t have other companies’ escape games at all, instead we design and build all our games ourselves. The most important benefit of this is that we fully understand the structure of the puzzles and we maintain and repair the games continuously. We have often heard from other escape games that something has not worked correctly, but when you play with us, you can be sure that all puzzles work as they should 🙂

All our games also have built-in difficulty levels, which means you can influence the difficulty of the room during the game. With this, the game experience is more individual and your group gets the best possible experience from the game 🙂

In Joensuu, our games include Circus, Witch of the Enchanted Forest, Secrets of the Past and a variety of Virtual Reality games.


You can book an escape game with the booking calendar below. After the booking you will receive an automated email confirming your reservation. If were at the office, there may be same day timeslots available.
You can ask for same day bookings with WhatsApp @ 050 462 3528 or a private message: @Pakotarinat Joensuu

The calendar shows only evening times by default. If you want to book a game for morning or day time or if you want multiple games to start at the same time, please contact us through email:  or call us: 050 477 8119

There are timeslots for Sundays as well!
