Escape Room Puzzles


An Escape Room is a popular immersive puzzle game where a group of participants are “locked” in a room and must solve a series of clues and puzzles in order to find the answer, key, or solution to “escape” and win. Games have a time limit, which is usually an hour, and rely on participants’ ability to work together, share clues, and think laterally.
