A routine tends to get boring after a certain point, and we could all use a break sometimes. A break that involves forgetting all the stress that surrounds your life and diverting your mind onto things that provide you with a sense of relaxation.
For some of us, that might be going to a concert or a movie and for others, it might be indulging in adventurous activities or discovering a new hobby. The idea of fun varies from one person to another.
However, if you are wondering what to do when you take your ‘break,’ we might just have the right idea for you!
While you’re seeking escape, we’d suggest you take it quite literally and go to an escape room!
The concept of escape rooms is not new and has been growing in India over the last few years. We’re going to be talking about the best ones in the Silicon Valley of India- Bangalore!
With such a large number of IT firms and other companies concentrated in this city, we believe Bangaloreans could use some fun time away from all the workload!
When we say fun, it also comes with a set of twisted clues that you need to crack!
We’ve curated a list of the best escape room games in Bangalore for a birthday party. Go through these and start planning your escape already!
1. Ruins of Hampi- Mystery Junkies, Koramangala
Hampi is such a historically rich place, known for its archaeological marvels. What if we told you that mystical bells might’ve just been revived? But, the catch is that the Chief Archaeologist is found murdered and the precious bells have gone missing, yet again. In this race against the clock, you have to escape the room by placing objects in a certain order so that you recover the bells!
Team: 2-8 players.
2. Vampire Chronicles- Escape Room, Koramangala
Located in the same area as the previous one, this vampire based theme is offered by Escape Room. You are in possession of a deadlock that ends a long battle between humans and vampires.
