Can You Escape Indoors? (Part 2)

I caught the escape room fever and I went digging for more. I really enjoyed my time at the No Escape, I decided to check out other escape rooms.

Seoul Escape to my surprise was even bigger and had a lot more to offer. Located in Hongdae, Gangnam, and Itaewon, if you’ve escaped to Seoul and you are looking for an escape in Seoul then Seoul Escape is worth every second. Seoul Escape classifies the escape rooms by level of difficulty and provides an escape for various groups of people. It offers couples a change from their well-outdone Netflix and chill dates. It offers friends something to do and talk about, and colleagues a break from routine company dinners. And it’s a sure way to know how well you work well with people under pressure.

Seoul Escape is also pretty cool because it has a large option of rooms. There are four rooms. Turns out, the escape rooms at Seoul Escape have a storyline that builds on each other. As usual, there are clues in each room that will help you escape a dark future. However, you don’t have to follow the chronology of the storyline to escape each room. Once again, this is not a spoiler. It is just a brief description of the locations, level of difficulty, minimum and maximum number of players for each room.
