Have you ever been to one?
Do you even know what it is?
Do you like to be scared?
Do you like to be trapped?
Are you good at figuring out puzzles?
Do you overthink the obvious when it comes to a mind challenge?
If you said YES to any one of these, you would love the Escape Rooms.
I've just learned about them and have now had first hand experience at one in particular.
My girlfriends invited me, so there were 4 of us.
"Sure"! I said, "Lock me in a room with 3 of my friends and keep the key!"
In London, Kipps Lane, on Wednesday, Feb. 17, 5 pm we met.
We walk down a narrow cement well-lit walkway to an entry door.
The door has a window but it is dark and we can't see inside.
On the door is a combination challenge which we need to figure out in order to key in the code to
unlock the door. After a few minutes of 7 heads brainstorming, (others were trying to enter when we arrived) together we succeeded.
And so it begins!!
Unfortunately, we had a bit of a language barrier between us and the Asian host but we got enough from his instruction to understand he was locking us in a cold dimly-lit room with two doors.
We were each "armed" with a flashlight (oh no!) and a walkie talkie to call for help/hints/freedom if we needed it (yikes!). Our phones and cameras were seized upon arrival so we could not take photos so the ones I have posted here are from their web page only.
Not much in the line of explanation, really.
It is a see it to believe it kind of experience and our challenge in particular placed us in two rooms which needed to be unlocked.
We brave gals chose INVERSE WORLD
