Escape Rooms is one of the first locations opened in Bucharest in the first half of this year. The two rooms, located in a hostel in the city center, invites you to different stories. In the first room, reminiscent of a military barracks, the script says you have 60 minutes to defuse a bomb. The second room resembles a chessboard with the only escape mission. Easier said than done.

Flavia Mândruţ (25), manager Escape Rooms, says the idea came during a team building in Budapest.

“Initially we relied heavily on customers hostel, but now they no longer represent a significant part of customers. Hostels are generally directed to persons with lower incomes, such as backpackerii and they have a lot of money for activities like this. Now most clients come to us on TripAdvisor, strangers who read about us and want to play rooms. Most of those who came to play and subsequently made friends, I have not seen anyone to leave disappointed so far. ”
