What is a Quest Entertainment or Game?Work out when and for how long to visit Escape Zone and other Houston attractions using our handy Houston trip site.
The earliest real-life room escape, "Origin", was created in Silicon Valley by a group of system programmers in 2006. The mysteries and challenges in the game were inspired by the works of Agatha Christie and became a popular tourist attraction.
Real Escape Game (REG) in Japan was developed by 35-year-old Takao Kato, of the Kyoto publishing company, SCRAP Co., in 2008. It is based in Kyoto, Japan and produces a free magazine by the same name. Beyond Japan, escape games appeared in Singapore from 2011. Escape games in Singapore expanded quickly with over 50 games by 2015.
In 2015, there were over 2,800 real-life room escape venues worldwide. One of the first quests in Europe began to develop the people of Switzerland and Hungary. In Russia, the quests in reality came recently, but it very quickly became a popular entertainment with 2 weeks in advance booking and 24 hours service. Complexity of implemented technical decision are very high and deliver WOW effect with full immersion in the story of the quest for participants.

Our experience was below average. My friends and I have been to over 30 escape rooms and we were really looking forward to this one. We did the Zombie Bunker. However, from the moment we walked in, it was not a good experience. The host opened the door for us and gave us a weird look as if he wasn't expecting us. Turns out another group had showed up right before us and booked the room via telephone so their appointment wasn't on the schedule. It took the host a minute to figure it all out. When you're in the room, you communicate with the host via walkie talkie. I don't like that system because it was hard to understand him. Secondly, he kept calling in to make sure his battery was working. That was a little annoying. As for the Zombie Bunker, it was kind of a let down. The door leading into one of the rooms and the door getting out of the room were stuck so we didn't know we were done with a room until the host told us to push hard. One of the clues required a schematic which was never given to us. The host just had to give us the answer just so we could move on. No fun. The room was not as hard as I thought it was going to be. It was nicely decorated and had cool props but I was not impressed by the difficulty. Usually, when my group likes a room, we come back to finish the rest of the rooms in the facility. Unfortunately, I do not think we will be coming back. The whole experience left a bad taste in our mouths. If you want to know my favorite escape rooms in Houston so far, they would be Strange Bird, Cipher, and The Escape Game. Runners Up would Crazy Kat's and Escape The Room in Midtown.
Love the place. Friendly stuff and convenient location. We've tried the "Tesla"room and it was fun! Some of my girlfriends were so serious, they were rushing to solve the quest, but for me it was fun and I've enjoyed every minute there. Yes, the girl who is helping and giving the instructions- Russian. She was very friendly and helpful!
