What Are Room Escape Games? – Mercilessly Exciting Race Against Time




What are escape room games? The clock is ticking. You are locked in a room. In most room escape games, you only have one hour to solve tricky puzzles, find clues and solve a difficult puzzle. Read here why it’s worth trying it out!

Suddenly, the door closes behind you. You are locked in a room, you have to find clues, discover keys, open doors and solve the big puzzle. Together with friends, you dive into an exciting story for an hour – completely without smartphone, internet and virtual aids. And the clock is ticking mercilessly, because you usually only have 60 minutes to master the challenge! Sounds like a computer game – and is at least as much fun live as on screen.

By the way, we also have an overview page for the Escape Rooms in Berlin that we have already tested.

Short and Compact Exciting Facts

Live Escape Games have only been around in Germany since 2013 – and since then they have become the big trend for special and exciting indoor activities. In just 4 years, the first Room Escape Games were so well received that 208 providers now offer around 426 different Escape Rooms nationwide! No two Escape Games are alike – they all live from an exciting story on a certain theme and from the fun of going on a treasure hunt together as a team, cracking puzzles, combining!

There are Room Escape Games with different themes, for example: Horror House, Liquor Store, Crime Case, Zombie Apocalypse, Bomb Disposal, Nutty Professor, Prison Break, Search for a Missing Work of Art, Alien Invasion, Morgue, Magic, Escape from a Serial Killer, Egyptian Royal Tomb etc.

What Are Room Escape Games? 60 minutes, 1 Team, Brainpower

In a team of usually up to 6 people, you are locked in a room. Time is running backwards on the screen – so it’s breathing down your neck the whole time and you never lose sight of it. Now you start searching the room, finding objects and clues, combining, cracking puzzles, getting desperate from time to time – and of course getting help! Because you are being watched by a camera the whole time and tips appear on the monitor when time is running out or you ask for help yourself.

And many Room Escape Games are not at all child’s play. It is not said that you will always succeed – there are even Room Escape Games that are so challenging that only just under 50% of teams master them! So when choosing an Escape Game, you should pay attention to how challenging you want the game to be, depending on how experienced your team members already are.
