What is an Escape Room?
An “escape room” is a fun proposal for groups, friends and family where you have to play as a team, solving an enigma, mystery, riddle, puzzle or overcoming physical tests, all under the pretext of a limited time “to escape”, which is usually 60 or 120 minutes. In these games for all ages and group sizes, intelligence, observation skills and teamwork are put to the test.
