So, what is it?
Escape rooms are traditionally a collection of puzzles and riddles that that a group of people have to figure out within a limited time in order to “escape”. Thus, the Escape Room (P.S. you’re not really locked in the room as I don’t think the Fire Marshal likes that kind of thing). Hour Xscape is even more than that.
Imagine going to a movie with a group of friends. Fun times, right? But you can’t talk during the movie, or really engage. You’re just observing. A bystander. Now, add some drinks and some grub and you’ve just improved the experience. However, you’re still not engaged. You’re not part of the story.
Here is the difference.
Hour Xscape puts you into the story. Hour, because your story lasts 60 minutes and Xscape because you’re trying to solve the riddles within the time frame. You’re the FBI Agent, Art Collector, Terrorist Cell Operative, Corporate Espionage or Victim. Each experience engages you and tells a story. It gives you and your group an experience like no other. You don’t just find keys, open locks, or move stones. You’re completely immersed into the experience.
So come one, have a drink, plan, and plot on how you’ll figure out the next puzzle or watch as another group tries to figure their way out.
