Escape The Room has generated quite a bit of a buzz in New York recently owing to a large number of participants.

This is a company that introduced a game concept that has been gaining in popularity in cities all over the globe, including Escape The Room in Budapest. The concept is simple. You can choose from a variety of settings, office room, a home, or an agency. Regardless of your choice, the rules are all the same. You will be locked in a room and will have an hour to find a way to get outside. The room will be provided with clues and hints on how to make the escape.

“Reportedly, the New York chapter gets around a thousand visitors each week”

Escape-the-Room NYCThe New York chapter of the company opened in November 2013 on the eleventh floor of a building in Midtown Manhattan and the number of visitors has only been going up. The entry fee is $28 and you get one shot to escape from the room.

 

The concept was basically inspired from games like the Legend of Zelda and other console games where the user needs to find his way out with the help of visual cues and suggestions. The original Escape The Room game was started in Japan in 2007 and since then it has caught on like wild wire all over the globe. There are now offices in Chicago, Seattle, and St. Louis.

Reportedly, the New York chapter gets around a thousand visitors each week. The rooms are designed to be tough to get out of and there is just a 15% success rate. The idea for the game took time to catch up, but once it did, people can’t get enough of it. This is partly because in New York, you have so many things to do, but most of the time people just go out for drinks or dinner. With Escape the Room, you can have fun while at the same time; exercise your brain in the most unique manner.
