Escape rooms are generally a total blast. I did one here in Boston with co-workers a few years ago. We enjoyed it so much we even discussed plans of coming back. We didn’t. But this isn’t that story. I think the fun part of escape rooms is seeing how the themes are combined with puzzles to create a fun experience. Take for example, this new escape room “Defenders of the Triforce” which is a collaboration between the Real Escape Game by Scrap and Nintendo to create a Zelda themed escape room. According to the press release, guests will work in teams of six to solve a mystery in a huge area, within a set time limit. Interacting with classic Zelda items and characters like the Goron, Zora and Kokiri tribes, guests will solve puzzles that will, like the game, open up a new area to explore. You can check out the schedule below or visit the official site for more info. I do love how they have a ‘What’s Zelda?’ section. For the kids I guess. [via: The Verge | source: ScrapZelda Press]
