How I got rescued from the prison in 60 minutes. Mystery Rooms – Real Life Escape Game. Goa.


Mystery Rooms – Real Life Escape Games, located in Gaurawaddo, Calangute. 


First ever live game launched in Goa back in 2016. The concept of Mystery Rooms, was started by three adventure enthusiast and gaming geeks Shikhir Bhutani, Prateek Panjwani and Sapna Bhutani who came together to give their expertise and experience for transformation of their dream to reality. Mystery Rooms, first launched in Delhi and since then the founders have built their spot in almost 9 cities which are Kolkata, Chandigarh, Ludhiana, Pune, Goa, Jalandar, Bangalore, Gurgaon and Hyderabad.

The unique concept of mystery gaming room was inspired by the real-life version of the popular online “Room Escape” games, where two-eight people are locked inside a mysterious space for an hour, with the sole motive of escaping before time runs out.

Me and my friend chose the lockout room. The whole idea of being a prisoner and taking the prison break challenge was very thrilling. And the best part of this theme was the prisoner costume and handcuffs. Yes, they provide you with prisoner costume which gives you feeling of a criminal the moment you wear it.

As i changed into the prisoner’s costume, me along with my friend were then given instructions of Do’s and Dont’s of the room. I was handcuffed before entering the room, that moment i felt like a criminal unaware of the crime i commited. Hah! The moment we entered the room i heard a ticking clock which was enough to pump up my adrenaline, followed by many unexpected things that caused a stir in me, we were told the game is challenging and it’s more of finding hidden clues and solving the puzzles and escaping before time runs out. More of the elements i didn’t see coming my way that is tunnels, wall climbing, stealing lock key from the jailer’s room, etc.

There are stages in the game and with each stage you pass the difficulty level of finding the clues and solving the puzzles increases. We had reached the last stage and were almost close to escape but we got stuck on the last puzzle the one which would let us escape the room. The time was running out and we were panicking, there was a moment where we got scared to death and was startled when the siren went off, it was very loud and that indicated our time was up and we were BUSTED! Well, we were disappointed a little but then we were also proud that we made it till the end where very few people have reached so far. As i mentioned previously it is race against time. The game is very interesting as it needs patience and quick thinking.
