Since being in lockdown, we have swapped our usual social plans of dinner and movies for Zoom quizzes and Netflix marathons. Although virtual quizzes have kept us occupied a couple of nights a week, what will we do when we're all quizzed out? Well now, you can try your hand at an escape room, either with your friends or by yourself. If you've never been in an escape room, it's a game where a team of people are made to solve puzzles and clues in order to escape – but it has to be completed in an allotted amount of time. Up for the challenge? There are five different escape rooms to try on, and, you're able to take part with anyone in the world, either solo or in a team. So, text your chosen team mates and make your way into one of the rooms on offer. But, choose your team wisely as the rooms will challenge all of you – and you want your chances of escaping to be pretty high. Each room takes around an hour or two to complete, depending on how easy or hard you may find them. And, don't worry, there are three difficulty levels to choose from beginner, intermediate and expert. What are you waiting for? This is the perfect Friday night lockdown plan to make with your friends or family.
