How Do Escape Room Events Work?
Groups of 8-10 will be assigned to each escape room. Every room has a different storyline which the group will be briefed on upon entering. You’ll then have 1 hour to find the way out as a team. Everyone must work together to solve problems, uncover clues, and crack codes in order to progress through the room and ultimately escape. The games are challenging and very mentally stimulating but don’t require any physical exertion.
