Escape rooms are taking Sydney by storm, inspired by the hundreds of escape rooms found across the world (apparently Hungary is the place to go for the ultimate mystery room binge – there are more than 100 rooms in Budapest alone).
The concept is simple: solve puzzles placed in and around the room before your allotted time runs out. Each room has a different theme and stimulates all senses, demanding a variety of problem-solving skills. Time Out took on the challenge of unlocking escape rooms across the city. Whether we got out in time? Well, that's a different matter.
