About Can You Escape?

Teams are locked inside fully-themed rooms and typically have one hour to find the clues, solve the puzzles and figure out a way to open the door. Their popularity exploded so suddenly that TripAdvisor has had to change their algorithms several times because the games were ranking higher than international landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the British Museum, and the Statue of Liberty.
