The Pirates’ Box logo

18 months ago an indigenous tribe in eastern Borneo dug up some kind of
treasure chest from the 17th century, but no one’s been able to open it.
Since that day, a number of strange tragedies have occurred within a 5 mile radius
of the site.

On January 9th, a class 5 tsunami claimed the lives of 4000 locals and
ravaged the island.
February 12th, American Airlines flight DC88 went down over the island without a trace, no distress signal was initiated and no fuselage was ever found. 285 souls were lost that day. Just last week, the Norwegian cruise liner Sunny Daze sunk in broad daylight, and those who
managed to board life boats were met with a frenzy of great whites, nearly 100 strong.

We believe these events are connected to the box, but the worlds’ greatest
minds have not been able to crack its devious codes. Our contract with the
Bornese government runs out in exactly 90 minutes.

We’ re counting on you to get to the bottom of this mystery and save the island before tragedy strikes again.

What are Portable Escape Room Boxes?

Portable Escape Rooms, also referred to as “Escape Boxes” are self-contained, immersive experiences, which can be taken to any location. No logistical set-up is required. All you need is an empty room, a table and a team of people ready to solve a mystery.

Why Portable Escape Rooms?

Portable Escape Rooms compress all the benefits of a traditional escape room within a box. You will test communication skills, working together towards common objectives and solving different types of puzzles and tasks from the safety of your location. The game can be set-up anywhere…the magic starts as soon as you open it.

How does it work?

Get in touch with us to select a date and time to rent the box. Boxes are rented twice a day, morning (till around 4pm) and evenings (from 6pm). In case of evening bookings, the box can be returned the morning after provided this will not clash with other bookings. You can choose to pick up the box and bring it back to South of Malta at no extra charge, or else you can opt for our delivery and pick-up service at an extra cost of €10.00 each way (up to Mosta). There is also the option to have a Can You Escape? – Malta staff member attending your event, allowing you to play multiple back-to-back games within the same rent as the staff member resets and sanitizes the box between groups. Contact us for booking and further info!
