Escape rooms are fun, interactive games where teams have an hour to find clues, solve puzzles, and make their escape. Themes include solving a murder mystery, escaping from a mad scientist, or conducting a jewelry heist. Escape room games offer challenging and exciting entertainment for groups of family, friends, and co-workers. Teams have to work together and have good communication to win the game, and the puzzles cater to many different types of skills.
