Escape Rooms

Escape rooms are some of the best group activities you can do with friends! Even with kids, you can definitely set up an escape room birthday party. The best part is that the kids will have 1 hour to solve their way out of an escape room. Within that 1 hour, you can probably set up cakes, food and even get other guests settled for the birthday party hassle-free! For adults, escape rooms are a great way to hang out and experience with friends. Since escape rooms usually allow 2 to 5 players in a room, you can also go on a date at some of the most interesting and best escape rooms in Singapore. 

With every escape room, there are levels of difficulty as well. If you are up for the challenge, you would have fun in the more challenging rooms.

Some of them can get pretty interesting while others can even be based in true stores! Yeah, we’re talking about all the horror escape rooms.
