We all love our games. More people are playing computer games than they ever have before and games have been given so many platforms to reach passionate gamers that it’s almost impossible to avoid getting addicted to them these days. So, are you one of the fanatics? You’ve beaten all of your high scores, downloaded every mod you could find, collected every trophy and Easter egg and your Sims family are not only all still alive but also have become millionaires without the help of cheats. Surely you think you’ve done and won it all. Why not take it one step further? Haven’t you always wished that your favourite games were more…real? Well, maybe there’s a solution out there.
You wake up and don’t recognise where you are. It’s late at night and you hear thunder clapping overhead. You see nothing but darkness and when your eyes adjust to the lack of light you can see that you’re in an unfamiliar room and you have no idea how you got there. You have an hour to figure out how to solve a series of puzzles and escape before the serial killer that locked you in here comes back. That sounds pretty scary, right? Is it too scary? Well, what if instead of a dark, scary room it was the inside of a gallery? Maybe you’re an art thief who has to steal a world famous painting in an hour without setting off any of the alarms.
If you’re one of those people that love high stakes and drama with their games then you’d be thrilled to know that you can play real life escape the room games in Cardiff. You and your friends will be given a story and locked in a room filled with puzzles, obstacles, secret codes and mysteries and it’s your job to solve them all, find the key and escape before time runs out. It’s going to take a keen eye, quick thinking and guts to get out. You and your team need to work together to solve the puzzles and beat the timer. How cool does that sound?
These escape the room games are all fully immersive. There are all sorts of stories and rooms to suit any kind of player and the environments will be set up to make you feel like you’re right there. If you’re fond of strategy and puzzle games then playing one in really life will only make you love them even more. Maybe you’ll be the one to solve the mystery while your friends are scratching their heads.
These games are set up for 2-6 players to take part and are suitable for all ages, although that doesn’t mean that people all ages will be able to win them. They come in a range of difficulties – from a walk in the park to being impossible to figure out – and the atmospheres can get pretty creepy, if not downright spine chilling. They’re a great way for you to test out your talents in the non-virtual world and see if playing all those puzzle games paid off.
