(Closed) New World Carnival

Take things up a notch and give this virtual reality escape room at New World Carnival a go. You and one other friend will be fully immersed in a different reality – think an eerie dollhouse or madman’s prison – once the goggles and headphones are on.

(Closed) Lockdown SG

With a cute bear as their mascot and bear-themed game plots, Lockdown SG offers a more light-hearted take on virtual escape games. 

Though Lockdown SG’s physical location is temporarily closed, you can still book their VR escape games here at The Escape Aritst for something a little more light-hearted with cute bear-themed visuals

Can only 2 people play an escape room?

As they’re usually more well-known as a teambuilding activity, escape rooms in Singapore typically cater to a minimum of 4 people. 

However, there are some options in this list that offer games for two people, such as Virtual Room, Lockdown SG, and Captive Escape Room for their Wednesday Addams Gretel & Hansel or Murder on the Singapore Express rooms. 

Are escape rooms very scary?

Whether an escape room is scary or not it depends on what the concept of the escape room is. Generally, escape rooms are meant to instill some form of suspense. After all, the premise requires you to race against the clock and escape. However, most of them are all in good fun and aren’t supposed to be too scary. 

That said, there are a few escape rooms in Singapore that provide horror-themed rooms. So if you’d like to enjoy the thrill of solving a puzzle without getting jump-scared, we’d recommend you avoid those rooms altogether. 

Do people get claustrophobic in escape rooms?

Though claustrophobia varies from person to person, it’s possible that escape rooms might be unsettling for those who have claustrophobic tendencies. Even though many rooms offer ample space for movement, they can feel a bit cramped with larger groups.

Our advice would be to reach out to the escape room company before making a reservation and inquire about their room options. Additionally, check if they have emergency exits that allow for a quick exit in case you feel anxious.

Cheap escape rooms in Singapore

Sometimes, we all need a little break from our mundane routine. Escape rooms can offer a brief respite from reality, allowing you to immerse yourself in a different world for a while. Within this time, you can pretend that the puzzles and challenges are all that you need to deal with in life.

For all those who’re looking for some form of escape, the above list of escape room providers in Singapore will give you exactly that. Pick your poison from this list and get ready to challenge your limits.

P.S. If you are planning an escape room trip with your little ones, do remember to check for any possible age restrictions to minimise any interruptions to your family outing.
