Online locked-room escape games are popular around the world, but China has taken it one step further with real-life room escape games.

Inspired by an online game called Takagism, groups can pay roughly the amount of a movie ticket to be locked in a series of rooms in a building with venues ranging from converted apartments to factories and bomb shelters. The group than attempts to escape via a series of puzzles and clues within a specific time frame. The activities range from riddles, to chemistry or math based puzzles.

These real life room escape games are great for testing knowledge and teamwork skills while having fun. As an alternative to more traditional shooting or adventure games, locked room games, real-life or online offer a quiet, brain-teasing time that many players prefer.
