Recommended rooms

For international visitors: Please note that this blog (and its recs!) are intended for a Singapore-based audience. I wouldn’t recommend Singapore as a destination for escape room tourism; it has few must-plays on an international scale. (None of my personal top 10 still-operating rooms are in Singapore.)

(I would recommend Virtual Room’s three VR offerings at an international level, but those aren’t escape rooms per se.)

Feel free to contact me if you want some tailored recommendations based on team size, team experience, preferred room aspects, etc!

  1. Hi, I enjoyed chamber of secret and resident evil too at Xcape. Another good one is also Kidnapped from lockdown for beginners. But as I like horror stuff more, I enjoyed Friday the 13th and Hunger Games at
