What is an Escape Room Marathon?
Escape room games, also known as an “escape experiences”, are an exciting, new entertainment that everybody should try. An escape room is a realistic collaborative mystery game, where players are locked inside a themed room and the quest is to figure out a way to escape the room before your allotted time ends.
This is done by solving a series of puzzles and riddles using clues, hints, and tactics to complete the tasks at hand. The aim is to unveil the secret plot which is hidden within the rooms, and you’ll need members of your team to use their wits or their street smarts to figure out how everything joins together. Escape games could be set in any fictional location, such as dungeons, prison cells, and space stations, and usually, the various riddles and puzzles follow the theme of the room.
Escape room marathons basically involve playing a game for a long continuous time, usually consecutively or at a stretch. Gaming marathons are an enjoyable way to chill and enjoy quality time with friends.
It could involve participating in several escape games at one location in a row, or maybe doing a ‘pub-crawl’ type activity where you do a “roundup of all the escape rooms in a location”. It’s an awesome team exercise and bonding activity and turns into a ‘think-solve-escape’ marathon. A group of friends once participated in one of the longest stretched escape marathons, 26 Games in 12 Months. They hit up several escape rooms companies all around the UK, a year load of fun.
