ES­CAPE ROOMS

The lat­est craze that’s sweep­ing the re­gion is like play­ing a live­ac­tion video game

WHAT’S THE DEAL?

Es­cape games are the new hot­ness, and the folks at Hun­gar­ian Games have brought the orig­i­nal Para­park - the com­pany that kicked off the craze back in 2011 - rooms to Dubai. They of­fer three dif­fer­ent es­cape rooms that place you and your mates into wildly dif­fer­ent sce­nar­ios: ‘Crime Scene’ where you are thrust into the role of pri­vate in­ves­ti­ga­tors, at­tempt­ing to solve a mur­der and un­cover cor­rup­tion within the force, ‘4th El­e­ment’ an un­der­wa­ter adventure that sees you try­ing to thieve trea­sure from the lost city of At­lantis, and, our favourite, ‘Stu­dio 113’ which un­folds like a psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller as you bat­tle with your own per­son­al­ity dis­or­der in an at­tempt to break free.

HOW DOES IT PLAY?

You pick from one of the three pos­si­ble sce­nar­ios and have 60 min­utes to es­cape us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of wits, cun­ning and a bevy of clues scat­tered around the en­vi­ron­ment. Each room is unique mean­ing that the skills that served you well as the city’s best pri­vate dicks, won’t nec­es­sar­ily be help­ful when you’re try­ing to hus­tle away with At­lantean gold. Once you’ve com­pleted the rooms, there’s also host of ac­tiv­i­ties to keep you oc­cu­pied in­clud­ing an in­door golf­ing sim­u­la­tor to prac­tice your swing shot, an art stu­dio where you can paint on wall-sized can­vases, and set of mini-es­cape ex­pe­ri­ences if you just couldn’t get enough of the full-fat ones.
