What Is An Escape Room?

An Escape Room is a fun and exciting experience like no other. You are placed into a specially designed room with your friends where you are faced with a series of puzzles to solve using only the items in the room. As you solve the puzzles you will progress through a story and hopefully find your way out in time. You will have 60 minutes to successfully complete your objective.

Each puzzle is different and will require you think inventively. You will need to think about clues carefully, analyse your surrounding, use objects in unusual ways and work as a team to escape. As you solve each puzzle you will uncover new information that will make you rethink everything in the room. Communication with your team is the most important tool to use if you want to get out in time.

Why Escape Rooms?
