What is an escape room?


Escape rooms (which can also be called room escape games, escape games, live escape games, exit games, etc.) conquered the world, including Sweden, during the 2010s, and their popularity is growing every day. It’s a group activity – a kind of intellectual adventure involving you and a group of friends (usually 2-7 people) being locked in a room with a specific theme. Within a limited time, usually 60 minutes, you should then escape the room by solving riddles, looking for clues, and using the objects in the rooms as help.

Put your thinking cap on, and collaborate with your teammates. Teamwork is the key to succeeding in your mission and escaping from your room before time runs out. If you get stuck, you have a game master who, throughout the challenge, keeps an eye on you and comes to your rescue with tips and clues. But don’t worry, you don’t have to be geniuses to take on the challenge – anyone can play escape room!
