If you’ve never done an escape room, you probably aren’t sure what to expect. Usually, people put escape rooms in the same category as haunted houses… as if a haunted house wasn’t scary enough, now you’re locked inside of a room with no way out! In reality, this is just one of the myths behind our escape rooms – stay tuned for a whole list of myths that we’ll debunk.
Now on the flip side, if you LOVE the thrills and pressure of a haunted house, but also LOVE the challenge of solving puzzles with your team, then Confinement is the episode for you!

But don’t worry, if you’re not this type of thrill-seeker, we have 10+ episodes with varying themes, from breaking out of prison to a fairytale theme. Check them out here.
In this episode, you follow the story of a woman named Scarlett.
