Escape rooms have become popular in Europe since 2011. In case you haven’t tried one yet, you have a chance to do it in Timisoara, thanks to Exit Games.
How does it work? Teams consist of minimum two players and a maximum of eight, depending on the room you choose. The team has to work together on solving riddles and puzzles in order to exit the room in 60 minutes. Although at a first it may seem like a simple task, it’s actually quite challenging! Team spirit and efficient communications between team members are crucial.
Currently, Exit Games offers three escape rooms to choose from, each with a different scenario. Of course, new rooms are added each year and some of the old rooms are replaced with new ones. Did we mention that the rooms are designed also to be played in English?! The staff speaks good English, so you should find it fun to play the whole game in English!
If you want to try an escape room out, you can choose from the following three rooms. Please see their descriptions below:
“For 5 years you have been working at the car factory. Sometimes your friend visiting you he sneaks out with pieces, one by one, to finally mount a new car, together with whom you’re gonna travel to the sea. But unfortunately one thing he did not get, and this is the ignition key, what you have to smuggle out from the factory. This is the only chance for you and your friend to get a well-deserved vacation in Vama Veche. But attention, you need to be fast and clever, and to no one should catch you, otherwise, you and your friend are going to prison.”
The Laboratory of Tesla
“Nikola Tesla was a genius whose inventions changed the world and our daily lives. According to the legend, Tesla had a laboratory for some of his secret inventions, which have remained unknown to us even today. For over a hundred years teams of prestigious researchers have tried to find this mysterious laboratory, without any luck. Now your team has the unique opportunity to unveil its mysteries! But beware! The moment this door closes things will go berserk and the only way out is through teleportation. May you fail in your quest you will not be able to escape Tesla’s crazy laboratory and no one else will ever be able to find you!”
Mr. Bean (Preparation for Christmas)
“Mr. Bean went to do his Christmas shopping, but could not leave the house unattended. So he has put all kinds of obstacles and traps to prevent the entry of others into the house. Unfortunately, this plan – like all other – did not happen as he thought it would, but on the contrary: you can easily enter, but it’s quite difficult to get out. In the house, we meet many familiar things that guarantee fun, but fun has a limit, because if you fail to escape until he returns from shopping, you’ll have to spend the holidays with him, and that will have unpredictable consequences.”
Price per person: about 10 Euros.
