How Escape Rooms Work

You and your team must find hidden clues, solve puzzles and complete challenges to escape the room! Sixty minutes will fly by as you use your common sense, deductive skills and powers of observation to defeat the game. Everything you need to get out is located somewhere in the room. Can you complete the challenge before time is up?
