Hi, my name is Eunice. I would like to know how much does this attraction cost for one adult? And is there any similarity between online escape room games?

Hi Eunice, Our games are designed for teams 2-5 people. The team hunts for clues and solve puzzles and is trying to escape the room within 60mins. Hope this helps. Cheers EQ
