Ever want to get locked in a room? You’re in luck! ‘Room Escape’ games are apparently gaining huge popularity in Hong Kong; similar to Haunted Houses, players are locked in a dark room and must explore their surroundings in order to escape, using a variety of skills and clues before their allotted time runs out.
This new form of entertainment has drawn in corporations such as Hugo Boss, Procter & Gamble, and Cathay Pacific who use the rooms to promote team building exercises and quick problem solving.
There are many different “room escape” themes, ranging from hospital scenarios to murder scenes to supernatural mysteries.
Freeing Hong Kong, one of the “room escape” businesses, plan to create franchises all over Taiwan, South Korea, India and Philippines.
