An escape room is a game that players go to a real-life facility and they need to use their skills to get out of a room. The players are “locked” in a special room and they need to use clues and solve puzzles to find the key or to unlock the door to escape the room. They must do this is a specific time limit. The players need to work together and if they can get out of the room they are winners. If they are not able to get out of the room staff will let them out once the time has expired but they would have failed the mission.
When a team is put into the room there is usually between 2 and 10 players. The escape room can have different themes including a prison cell, dungeon, or just about any other theme. Once the players have entered the room and the rules were explained to them the clock will start. Most games last between 45 and 60 minutes. The players will then look for clues and try to solve the puzzle. The escape room is more of a mental challenge and there are no special physical skills needed to play.
If the teams get stuck they may be able to ask for hints. The players need to put together all of the information to win. If they win they may be placed on a leaderboard and their time may be posted. They will need to use the clues and information in the room to find their way out.
Escape rooms have become popular all over the world. They can be found throughout the United States and Europe. The escape room used to be a video game and now it has been adapted to a real game. People all over the world are testing their skills to see if they have what it takes to escape.
