Our Rooms

Mouse Trap Escape is a real-life escape room game business. Rooms are a type of physical adventure game in which people are locked in a room with other participants and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit, usually 60 minutes. Some games include sub-plots. The games are based on “escape the room” video games in which the player is locked inside a room and must explore his or her surroundings in order to escape. Players must be observant and use their critical thinking skills to escape the room. Other inspirations include adventure board games and movies.
