You’ve probably seen them, chances are you’ve been in one, or even actually managed to escape from one. The escape room. In the past years, they’ve sprouted and have turned into one of the best group experiences for friends, family, and of course co-workers. They can play a huge part in team building, as it’s a totally different way of discovering hidden talents. If you’re doing it for having a good time, it can serve as a lot of fun as well.
Escape Artistry galore
Why the rise in popularity occurred might require some research, but the obvious reason seems to be the similarity to the mystery experienced in board games, video games, and of course movies and TV series. Because we all want to relive these exciting experiences, and doing it in real-life is even better. Because of the steady rise in facilities, there are a lot of different experiences to try out in an all-new mystery and adventure every time.
Elementary, my dear watson
