Everybody is visiting escape rooms and panic rooms and real life escape rooms and you are quite not sure what is it about?
Well if you looking for a short answer: it is about fun - escape rooms offer thrilling, mysterious kind of amusement, that can bring your group or family together and show you skills you didn't even know you were capable of.
Why? Why would somebody like to get closed in a room for one hour?
Unless you are claustrophobic (and some rooms are plenty big enough) or have a thing about locked doors (which can also be solved by simply pretending the door is locked) you may find it exciting to challenge yourself in something different from your daily tasks.
Do you like to read books, watch movies or visit theaters? When you do, do you dream to be one of the heroes? Escape game is like that except you can BE the hero. You (and your team) are the one who has to solve the problems and get yourself out of the sticky situation.
There are tons of different themes of escape rooms out there and it is up to you to find who you want to be for that day...an hour really.
Once the door closes, Mr.X is gone and you transform to a secret agent, zombie killer, mystery solving scientist...
And that's the whole fun - you can be whoever you want to be for the one hour a day!
