10 Best Escape Rooms in India for Kids

Escape room games are the newest fun-filled and exciting trend in town. Although the activity started off in Asia first, it took some time for the concept to gain ground in India. 

The concept of escape rooms began with John Wilson’s text-based game: Behind Closed Doors. The first modern, real-life escape room was created in 2007 in the city of Kyoto in Japan by a publishing company named SCRAP. Takao Kato was the designer of the room. Initially, the game was hosted across bars and restaurants in Japan (kind of like pop-up shops), where patrons played private sessions. Then the concept evolved to make way for public rooms where strangers could play together as a team as well. Now, SCRAP has escape experiences where more than thousands of players are accommodated within a large shared space!

Since the last decade, escape rooms have cropped up in almost every big city. In 2013, India’s first live escape room, Clue Hunt, was established in Bandra. And over time, other escape brands have diversified their experience with different approaches to the live-action escape game experience. For example, the escape room Breakout in Bangalore is Asia’s first movie-styled escape room. Currently, more than 100 mystery rooms are operating in India, and the numbers will only go up based on industry trends.

10 Best Escape Rooms in India for Kids

India is gaining ground as a profitable market for escape games, and why not, right? But hey, if you don’t know what escape games are about, here’s a brief explanation: Escape rooms (also known as puzzle rooms or mystery rooms) are usually live-action escape games where the players are locked inside a themed based room, and they must make their escape within a set time limit.

The players must form a group, and they will make their escape by figuring out clues and solving puzzles. They may also have to accomplish certain scenario-based tasks to become successful in that particular game. Usually, the time limit is an hour, but it might change depending on the game. The themes of the game room range from thriller, mystery, horror, science fiction, and much more. The best part about escape games is that they are perfect for all ages, especially kids.
