What is a Escape Room? An escape room, also known as an “escape game”, is a physical adventure game in which a group of players solve a series of puzzles and riddles using clues, hints, and strategy to complete the objective of the room’s theme. It’s a great opportunity to put the phones away and have some interactive fun with your friends. Escape Games are an amazing team-building activity for corporate groups, sports teams or friends. Everyone gets a chance to shine and show their unique skill-sets. The rooms at Escape Rooms Shannon are unique in that all of our adventures are steeped in genuine Irish history and folklore.
