Get me outta here…
My brother and his fiancée visited a few weeks ago and we found a super cheap deal (€40) on Groupon for Exit the Room. The moment I heard about being locked into a room with an hour to figure out a load of complex hints I wanted to try it out. It’s like a treasure hunt with a theme and you have to work as a team in order to figure out the clues to get to the next stage.
We were basically inside a Russian spy’s living room and we had to diffuse a hidden atomic bomb that was going to explode in 60 minutes. Here is the room we walked into:
I don’t want to give anything away, especially if you are thinking of trying this out. It was hilarious and nerve-wracking at the same time. You can see that there is a padlock on the wardrobe – so basically the whole time is spent looking over, under, around and near objects, whilst desperately looking for a key. There are hidden messages all over the place and as a team you need to work together to figure out what the clues are trying to tell you. In the event that you literally get stuck, there is no need to worry! You get a walkie-talkie with the man at reception and a few bonus questions if needed.
It was great! Each of us found something no one else had seen and we made it with lots of time to spare – even the guy at the front desk was surprised we finished so quickly! At the end you can draw things on the ‘wall of fame’ and take some silly photos. Exit the Room is all over Berlin (and Germany/ the world), so look up your nearest one, grab a bunch of friends and try and solve a mystery! I can’t wait to try another one
