At Façade Escape Room we immerse people in a handcrafted story environment to play a mental adventure game. Teams of players work together to solve a series of puzzles and riddles using clues, hints, and strategy to complete the objectives within 60 minutes. The challenges are set in an exciting fictional story - but don't worry, players are never actually confined! It's like a live-action mystery story that uses elements from experiences like scavenger hunts and interactive theatre, combined with problem-solving challenges and an adrenalin-pumping story, in an immersive custom-built environment.
