Escape rooms are physical adventure games where players are locked in a room and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles and escape within a set time limit. The first escape room opened in Japan in 2007, and the concept quickly spread to Europe and North America. Today, escape rooms are a popular form of entertainment, with new rooms opening all the time. At the latest count, there are over 1500 escape rooms across the UK.

Here at Mazer Zone, we recently opened our state-of-the-art escape rooms in London! 

How do escape rooms work? 

In an escape room, players are typically locked in a room and have to find clues and solve puzzles in order to escape. The time limit is usually one hour, but can be shorter or longer depending on the game. Some escape rooms are based on a specific theme, such as a prison break, a mystery, or a heist. Others are more general, and allow players to choose their own adventure. 

What are the most popular escape rooms? 

The most popular escape rooms vary depending on location, but some of the most popular themes include horror, sci-fi, heist, and prison break-themed games. Here at Mazer Zone, we have a number of different themed games available including sci-fi, heist, and soon our first horror game!
