A mysterious tip has led you outside of the enemy bunker. You’ve been on the enemy’s trail after suspecting their plans to destroy important historical and cultural landmarks around the world – and now you’ve finally located their hideout. You manage to sneak into the bunker when suddenly, the door behind you slams shut and locks. You have walked into a trap! The bunker is rigged to explode and the clock is ticking. Can you escape before the room goes boom?

A string of disappearances has been flooding the media recently. Rescuing the people would be nice, but the real reason your group is deep in the woods at night is the $50,000 reward. Exhausted, your group decides to camp for the night – and you’re on first watch. The warmth of the campfire puts you in too relaxed of a state, and soon enough you doze off… You awaken to the sound of your friend pleading with a dark figure who looms outside the cell you’re locked in. “It begins tonight. Your souls are the final piece… ” the figure whispers as it slips out of the room and locks the door shut. The cash reward is quickly forgotten – can you save your souls?

Live Escape has closed down.

Escape Mission (formerly Triango, but was bought out by Mission45) have announced a new room, and a deal along side it. The deal can be found HERE
You’re investigating a child abuse case. Intelligence shows that the child is being held at one abandoned facility. You and your team are arriving the facility and ready to search the child, however danger is approaching and the whole thing is a trap. Will you be able to survive this (Available for booking from July 27)
Sounds dark. I wonder why they didn’t just go with a hostage/kidnapping.

Great Escape are replacing The Apartment with a room named Seven Wonders.
You receive a phone call from the hospital. You are notified that your uncle has passed away after his trip to see the Seven Wonders. You went to his apartment to look for his photo album. As you are flipping through the album, you start hearing whispers. You look around. The door is shut, and you see a ghastly apparition of your uncle. He warns you that the room is haunted and you need to escape in 45 minutes, or you’ll be forever trapped in the photos. Can you escape?
Isn’t the room haunted… by your recently deceased uncle?

Riddle Room actually opened up a new room, Framed, about two weeks ago.
Your friend was a cop. A damn good cop. He called in a panic yesterday about someone he was following, and now he’s dead. What’s worse, people think you killed him. Now you’re in prison and you need to get out. You need to prove your innocence. You need to find out who the real murderer is.
I’ll probably post a review of it later this week.
