What is an escape room?!

“Escape Room games are a reality entertainment where teams of 6-12 players must use and manipulate their surroundings to escape an enclosed area or achieve a goal within a set amount of time. Wildly popular across the United States, these themed spaces utilize a series of clues and puzzles to thrill and challenge participants as they work together to ‘win’ before time runs out” (The Franklin Institute, n.d., para. 1).
