Escape rooms gain massive popularity

A Simi Valley escape room is one of the many themed puzzle experiences that is becoming part of a growing trend.

Escape rooms are spaces where people are locked in for a set amount of time. They have to use that time to solve a series of riddles and puzzles in order to find a way out.

Some companies that produce escape rooms have certain themes such as science, religion and horror. The theme affects what kind of puzzles people need to solve in order to get out of the room.

Escape room adventures can cost from $25 to $30 per person and usually go on for about 45 minutes to an hour depending on the theme.
