THE UNIQUE EXPERIENCE OF "ESCAPE GAME". ZÜRICHescape offers fun for groups in two different Escape Games: Escape Room and Escape Mission. ESCAPE ROOM You and your friends form a team of 2-6 members and get locked in a thematically designed room full of riddles, locked cabinets, puzzles, and secret objects. You have 60 minutes to find and solve all riddles using logic and wit. ESCAPE MISSION You form a team of 2-5 people and receive a mission task. Escape mission takes place outside the ZURICHescape premises, but in the nearby locations. You will have to find out how to get there and then back again, which should be easy, because you get a plan. But, of course, it will be much more difficult to solve all the riddles awaiting you there! Escape Mission can be played in any weather as it takes place in an indoor location.
