What are escape room games?

Over the past few years, escape rooms have become more popular; with a good reason. An escape room is a real-life puzzle game, where teams consisting of 2-16 players are locked inside an indoor room. The teams must use clues and solve puzzles to complete the tasks and escape the locked room. Most games incorporate a narrative and story that progress the gameplay, enabling teams to fulfill an adventure. Some groups may even become protagonists, depending on the type of gameplay selected.

Each game consists of a clear objective which may involve finding a key, combo, or a mechanism that will unlock the final door. At Alcatraz Escape Games – Tempe, we offer three different themes and stories for our participating teams. Wizard Hysteria, The Row, and Zombie Panic. Each room is highly decorated according to its theme and filled with the best production value for an out of this world experience. With the inclusion of highly skilled actors, we bring this experience to a whole new level. At Alcatraz Escape Games – Tempe, teams will be allotted only 60 minutes to solve the puzzles and find the key to escape.
