Do you have what it takes to escape in time?
If you're the type that's completely enthralled with thriller films, shouting out instructions to the television on how the characters should escape, this one is for you.
Do you have the skills it takes to escape?
Escapism is the latest interactive game to come to Melbourne following its success around the globe. Located in Strike Bowling in the Melbourne CBD, you'll find yourself signing up for a frightfully thrilling evening.
Here's how it works, pick a team and find the scenario that appeals to you. There's three to choose from ranging from escaping a murder when you've been kidnapped and chained up, investigating a serial killer who is hot on your heels (find them before they find you!) or finding your way out of a creepy garden nightmare and start solving.
The scenarios vary slightly in degrees of difficulty so you can come back and try more than one.
You'll be locked in for 50 minutes tasked with the challenge of finding clues, discovering hidden objects, solving riddles, and working out how exactly to escape these devilishly twisted scenarios before time runs out.
And who knows what happens when time runs out...
Escapism cost $100 per scenario/game and each scene varies in difficulty. It's ideal for 2-8 players per room and we say the more brain power the better.
