Escape Room 831
Imagine being closed in a room with a half a dozen other people and you’re given just one hour to figure out — through clues, codes and suggestions scattered throughout the room — to solve a murder.
Change the scenario to a bank heist, a murder mystery, a jewel caper, a prison, pirate ship, a space station, and much more, and you have one of the hottest trends in interactive or immersive entertainment — Escape Rooms. They’re based on escape-the-room video and online games. And now New Monterey has its own version founded by local entrepreneurs Christina and Barrie Riddoch.
