I went to an actual escape room once in Slovenia and sure, it was pretty fun, but at the end of the day you’re just looking for codes that will direct you to the next code, which will then direct you to another code and eventually you find the code that will tell you how to open the door.
Just like a real room, really.
If that sounds like your kind of thing and being trapped in a small area for fun doesn’t seem too triggering right now, then you might employ the services of Trapped In The Web.
On Trapped In The Web, you and some friends – over text, video chat or even in the same place (as long as you all already lived there) can try to work your way out of the room you’re trapped in.
The website says that you can spend an hour or two on the game with your friends, and there are currently five escape rooms on offer.
The first one costs £3.49 and, called Space Race, has you try to escape a damaged power station with no power or gravity.
The other ones will set you back £7.99 and include Cabin Fever, A Night At The Theatre, ‘School’s Out’ and ‘Out Of Hours’ .
Each room is very unique and has its own plots and methods of escape, which you can explore for as long as you please.
You can find more out and book a room here.
