What Is An Escape Room?

Immersive Experience. Group Event. Real-Life Adventure

Find Clues. Solve Puzzles. Accomplish Mission.

An escape room, also known as an “escape game,” is a real-life game in which your team enters a themed room or space to accomplish a specific mission.

To proceed, you need to find clues, solve puzzles, and accomplish tasks.

And you have to accomplish your mission within a time limit.

Immersive Experience.

An escape room is an immersive experience that will transport you to a unique environment, through the use of room design, game props, and special effects.

Think of it as a movie or a video game come alive, with you and your team as central characters.

It’s a great opportunity for you to escape everyday life for an exhilarating adventure!

Group Event

An escape room is always a group event. It’s an experience to be shared with your near and dear ones.

That’s what makes escape rooms a great fit for team building events, special occasions (like birthday parties, anniversaries, family get-togethers and so on), and even for corporate events!

How To Play (Important For First Timers)

As you enter the room, fan out and take in your surroundings.

Your first clue or puzzle may be obvious, such as a riddle that’s right there in front of you. Or, you might have to search for it.

Look for anything that’s out of place, inconsistent, or suggestive of being a clue.

Make sure you’re vocal, and constantly sharing information with the rest of your team; this is critical for success.
