The guys from CNET tested an escape room in Los Angeles:
A brilliant madman locked me and two of my friends in a room recently, and the three of us worked together to get out before meeting our certain doom.
Very good article explaining the different stages involved in the Escape Room process.
Not to mention the fun they had.
We really like how she ended her article, something that we also recommend
So go forth and escape, if you can...but once you try it out, you might find yourself looking for stranger and more difficult places to be locked up.
