Try to escape from
Have you ever wondered how a monkey feels when he is being trained to perform tricks or how he remembers all that he is taught? Well, you can live through his experiences as you dress up in a monkey costume hat and manoeuvre your way through rooms full of fun and adventure.

Monkey Run is the latest theme at Puzzled Room Escape. You are given one hour to complete your mission using skill and logic to unravel clues which gives you entry into the next puzzle room and ultimately your freedom. As the game progresses, you will learn the story behind each theme.

The Mission

Mankind has been driven to find a cure for many things. Day by day you see others of your kind go into Dr Irov's laboratory knowing full well that they never return. As test subjects of illegal experimentations, you know that your purpose is to be kept alive for these experiments. You feel there is no hope for your freedom. However, you find out that one of your fellow-test subjects has managed to escape from the laboratory. With your ardent desire to again be free, you must follow in his footsteps to make your breakout.

Although the puzzle can be undertaken by two people, my friend and I felt that it would be better to have the maximum number allowable of six people, because we each view things differently and what one couple cannot see, the other people will most likely be able to see.

The Monkey Run! is rated as 3-star and many have succeeded to freedom with plenty of minutes to spare. This was not the case with us. However the laughter we shared made up for the fact our freedom was not achieved.

Participants are given walkie-talkies so they can be in touch with the control desk if a clue is required. If you are afraid of the dark or cannot handle confined spaces this puzzle room is not for you. Responsibility for any incidents occurring is your own. For your own safety, mobile phones and drinks cannot be taken into the rooms. There are places to leave your valuables during the games.

In the not too distant future, a battle mode will be available to play simultaneously for both Monkey Run! and Dr Irov's Laboratory. As both these games are based within the same story line, large groups can race against each other to see who can escape the fastest.

There are three other themes currently running at Puzzled Room Escape. These are Puzzle Tech Murder, Haunted Academy and Dr Irov's Laboratory. Each has their own level of difficulty.

Prices start at $90 for two people and goes down in price per person depending on the number of people who are attending. The maximum number of people at one time in any game is six. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Although friends and families can enjoy the fun, these themed rooms are great for corporate functions and social club events.
