Escape Room: Top FAQ
So what is an escape room exactly? Is it the same as a locked room?
An escape room is a game where you and your team are trapped in a mysterious room. The room is filled with hidden clues to discover, codes to break, and puzzles to solve. You only have 60 – 70 minutes to put it all together and escape before time runs out. There could also be other goals to achieve along the way, like deactivating a bomb, or finding an antidote.
In Calgary some people call them “locked rooms”, though this name is less common outside of Alberta. Others call them escape games.
What makes for the best escape room experience?
With the huge number of escape rooms now open, one of the questions we often get is how do I choose a good one? And what distinguishes a great escape room from one that’s rather mediocre? This is a question that’s much too long to answer on our front page, so we’re doing a blog post to cover it all shortly.
