If you have ever wondered if you would be able to use your own smarts to escape a locked room, you can see for yourself with live room escape games. Trend Hunter spoke to Game Master Scott McInnes of Real Escape Game Toronto, who shared his thoughts on the exciting experience of solving puzzles and clues to escape.

Partnered with SCRAP Entertainment in Japan, Real Escape Game brings over Japanese room escape games and translates them for North America. After refitting the scenarios in San Francisco, the real life puzzles are particularly refined and hold an interesting history.

McInnes attributes the popularity of the addictive activity to the rise of video gaming, as it allows players to fully immerse themselves. Despite a success rate of 2%, participants are excited to put their wits to the test and find themselves returning again and again.
