Stanley Library's Escape Room

What is an Escape Room?

"Escape rooms are live interactive adventure games in which participants must team up to solve a series of riddles, puzzles, and challenges to win" (Kroski 3).

"Escape room games are interactive games in which groups of participants gather in a room where they must solve a series of puzzles within a specified time limit" (Kroski 5).
