In recent years, the escape room concept has been popping up all over the world. From San Francisco to Boston and around the world, they’re more common now than ever. But, what are escape rooms? It’s a fairly simple premise. Put a handful of people into a themed room and have them solve a puzzle in 60 minutes or less. The themes of these rooms range from whodunit-crime mysteries to horror houses, but the idea remains the same – solve the puzzles, complete the goals, and escape. As of right now, their popularity isn’t slowing down. Touting their team building benefits, companies flock to them on business retreats, families go to them on vacations, and friends do it to shake things up and do something different. Curious to see which are the best around? Be warned, by the end of this, you’ll likely be thirsty to try them out yourself. Here are 25 Best Escape Rooms You Might Not Get Out Of.
