Similar to haunted houses and scavenger hunts, escape games, also known as escape rooms, are live action roleplaying games within immersive environments that are created specifically for the game. They are typically a timed adventure game within a specifically themed room with a prepared game scenario. In these immersive games a team of players work together to find clues, solve riddles and puzzles, and accomplish tasks within the environment in order to progress through the game and reach the goal within a limited amount of time, usually 60 mins. The goal is often to “escape” from the site of the game.
Escape Rooms are also known as Escape Games or Puzzle Rooms.
