Literally, everyone is doing it. Okay, maybe not everyone, but you can’t escape the fact that Escape Room Games are the hottest new trend in adventure past times.  So, what’s the big deal?

Well, imagine the excitement: you’re locked in a room with a few of your closest friends, or maybe they’re co-workers, and you have limited time to solve, as Escape the Space puts it,  fiendishly clever puzzles to get out of that room, or else.

I mean, do you have what it takes to “defuse a bomb as the clock ticks towards zero? Do you have what it takes to solve crimes and outwit criminal masterminds?” If you’re not sure, wouldn’t you like to know?

In a world where gaming is number 1 and sitting for long periods is not, this activity has really hit the mark.  The only part of this game that should be done online is booking it!

Let’s be honest, we’ve all wondered what it would be like to do a bank heist in the 1920’s, right? Well, now you can with The Escape Room Indianapolis

“We could not see operating as
efficiently as we do now without Checkfront.”

“It’s the roaring 20’s and you and your seedy gang of no-goods are on the lookout for your next caper. Rumor has it that the Fletcher Bank & Trust Co. has just received a new shipment of gold!”

And that’s not it, your seedy gang of no-goods, has options such as KGB Interrogation, Jailbreak, and more!

 

The first room escape games were developed in Japan in 2007, and rapidly spread across Europe. They migrated to North America in 2012 or so, and have been growing in popularity ever since. In a room escape game, you’re given a strict time limit (usually about an hour) and must work together to solve puzzles and gain a key—just like in the old adventure games you used to play.

This is one industry where failure is expected; the success rate for solving the puzzles typically hovers around 15-20%, and that’s exactly how the owners want things to be.The puzzles aren’t a breeze; many groups will fail the challenge, but the heightened stakes just increase the thrills and fun. So, whether it’s a birthday party, corporate team-building retreat, or just an outing with friends, escape the room games are a unique way to spend a few hours and work on your abstract thinking skills.
