So a while ago I had seen that there was a Groupon for an Escape Room activity and the people I was mentioning it to were not into it at all. Lately though, they have been growing in numbers and even the Xtreme Action Park which is very popular in my area is opening Escape Rooms themselves.
If you are the kind of person that loves a mental challenge, I would definitely try it. I am lucky that I found someone that wants to do it with me.
Once I try it out I will let you guys know how it went.
What is an Escape Room? An escape room is a physical adventure game in which players are locked in a room and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles and escape within a set time limit. The games are physical versions of "escape the room" video games. At least that is what Wikipedia says. Where did they originate? According to the Washington Post, after taking off in Asia, Western Europe and the West Coast, these attractions are popping up across the country. Are they really that challenging? It all depends on the Escape Room in your area but for instance, Escape Room Live DC is "set up so about 30 percent of participants can escape in time without help from the gamemaster". Is it expensive? According to npr, tickets run around $30 a person at most places, or teams can buy out the room.
