HOUSTON, May 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Escape games are a new, exciting and increasingly popular activity that is growing across the country where players must solve a series of puzzles and challenges to escape a room.
Escape Now is proud to present North Houston's first two escape rooms, 'Sherlock' and 'The Chocolate Factory.' In the Sherlock room players will have 60 minutes to solve a series of puzzles and clues to find the original will of Lord Byron before the judge rules on the forged will. In the Chocolate Factory you will want to discover the secret chocolate recipe and escape with the details in 60 minutes.
At Escape Now our mission statement can be put simply: We put FUN first! Escape room games are a fun and wholesome activity for groups of friends, date nights, special events and private parties.
An ideal event for corporate team building, escape games focus on collaboration, communication, logical thinking, critical thinking, and problem solving. Scott Nicholson, professor of Game Design at Wilfrid Laurier University in Brantford, Ontario says, "They allow people to leave the world of screens and engage face to face; because room escapes offer different types of challenges, each member on a team has a time when they are able to be the hero." Team building games such as this give managers an opportunity to see how their teams work together to solve intricate problems on a short timeline with little consequence to their business and allow them to identify each members' strengths.
Birthday parties for youth aged 10 and above take them away from electronics for an hour or more while they work together in the interactive real life game with the goal of escaping.
To add that special touch all private events can include themed refreshments of your choice such as English desserts, a chocolate fountain or candy buffet!
