Popular Escape Room Themes

Popular escape room themes often take their cue from pop culture. Whatever is abuzz at the moment could make its way into the puzzles.

For example, you can find zombie escape rooms in which the premise is that you need to leave the room before you get surrounded by an approaching horde of brain eaters. There’s something to fire up your sense of urgency!

Other rooms might have you trapped in an ancient tomb of an Egyptian pharaoh or a Roman emperor. You have to find ways to escape using your knowledge of those early civilizations including myths and legends.

You may also find rooms where you need to crack codes to defuse a virtual bomb or foil the plans of a mad scientist. Some will challenge you to escape from a prison cell, find antidotes, solve mysteries of a mansion, or catch a serial killer.
