What's an Escape Room?
An escape room is a real-life, puzzle-solving adventure game.
You and your team of 2-8 people are "locked" in a room filled with mysterious objects, all waiting to be explored. You have 60 minutes to investigate, find clues, solve puzzles and unravel a story to ultimately set yourself free!
Popular with groups of friends and families, escape games are also ideal for work colleagues as team building/bonding exercises.
Escape Rooms let you use your brain, do something unique, and have fun with your friends!
A LITTLE HISTORY
The idea of making a real life escape game apparently originated in Japan around 2007. Since then, they've grown in popularity around the globe. The first one only hit Australia in 2014.
