About

Just a random person who likes escape rooms. All opinions are my own. Visits were not invited, sponsored or paid for by the companies in any way. (The one exception is my preview visit to chapter one of The Forsaken Vault.)

If some of these reviews look familiar, it’s probably because you’ve seen the (slightly different) versions that I’ve posted to TripAdvisor.

As for escaping outside SG, you can find my reviews of rooms in Kuala Lumpur here, and reviews for rooms/events other countries here.


ESCAPE EVENTS?

Why doesn’t this blog include reviews of events, such as the pioneering Real Escape Game series?

The main aim of this blog is to help people decide what escape rooms they might want to try. (This is also why, when I started, I didn’t post reviews for rooms that had already closed.) Escape games or events, however, are often held only once. As such, I didn’t want to include reviews for them here.

However, because I was bored it can be nice to get a second opinion on escape game events which you’ve taken part in before, I have a separate blog for escape game reviews. Here it is: escaped.sg


THE REVIEWS

All reviews are based on full, successful escapes (I have some great escape room comrades) except for:

Mission Incredible
Attempted as a pair, failed miserably, so the review is based on an incomplete experience.

Ninja: The Secret Disciplines of the Shinobi
Attempted in a group of 3. We only failed to solve the last step, so we had basically the full room experience.

Quarantined – The Final Hour
Attempted as a pair. We only failed to solve the last step, so we had basically the full room experience.

Vampire Diary
Attempted in a group of 5. We were two or three steps from the ending.

Tomb Raider
Attempted in a group of 9. We were about one-and-a-half steps from the ending, so we had basically the full room experience.

Szechuan Secret
Attempted in a group of 6. We made it through about… 60%, 70% of the room, maybe?

Alice in Wonderland
Attempted as a pair. We only failed to solve the last step, so we had basically the full room experience.

Funeral: The Mourning Widow
Attempted in a group of 6. We only failed to solve the last step (arguably due to having lost a lot of time due to technical malfunction), so we had basically the full room experience.

Poseidon
Attempted in a group of 3. We only failed to solve the last step, so we had basically the full room experience.

  1. Hey Escaping Sg,
    We love room escapes too! Could we put a link to your WordPress site on our WordPress site?

  2. Hello!
    You’re blog is really interesting, do you maybe have a contact email-address? Because I would have some questions on Escape Rooms, and if you could give me some thoughts on them that would be really cool!
    Best,
    Sophie

  3. Hi! We are from Malaysia, also operating a review site at escmanleague.com. We also operate an FB group for escape gamers community in Malaysia. We are still building our website, and would love to request you permission to add a link to your blog on our site. Would be great to have our readers learning more of the escape games across the border!
    Cheers~ Jing

    ps We will definitely consult your list of highly recommended rooms when we head down south for a game. Encounter, PhantomJoker and Breakout are high on my list to visit now. Glad to have found your blog!

    1. Hello! It’s always nice to hear from other escape room fans. Sure, I’d be honoured if you linked to my blog. 🙂

      I hope you enjoy those rooms when you visit! I really should head north to try some of yours, too — I hear that they’re a lot bigger and more exciting than those here, haha.

  4. Thanks! I always thought Sg has more advance and innovative concepts so far, like the Encounter and PhantomJoker. So far Malaysian rooms are still very much decode-unlock-escape type… Anyway, if you do head up here, we would recommend Breakout, by far the best overall experience!

    1. Ah, I didn’t know that… Well, even a standard decode-unlock-escape room can be fun. 🙂 Breakout Malaysia looks very polished, I’ll definitely keep them in mind – thanks for the recommendation!
