“What on earth is an escape game?” Answer: you and your team (best: 3-5 people) are locked into a room where you are confronted with brainteasers to find the key or code to escape before 60 minutes are up. AdventureRooms in Vienna was initially invented in 2012 by a professor of applied physics in Switzerland – for his students only, yet the course was so well received that it became a business. There are about ten game versions within the international AdventureRooms family, all varied from each other.
In Vienna, the game consists not only of finding the code, but much rather of physical characteristics mixed with optical phenomena and the main focus on joining the dots fast and cleverly, which was why I liked it so much. No worries if you don’t speak German, there are no written clues during the game, and they do of course speak English there.
You can play two different games, the Original and the Black Queen, with the first one being a tad more physics related and the latter a little bit more difficult to solve. Also, there’s a duel version of those games, where two teams play against each other.
For whom is this interesting? Group of friends, school classes, couples, a team of co-workers (team building) or a bachelor/bachelorette party… in short: people looking for a good time filled with lots of action and fun.
