The rooms are themed and can represent different scenarios such as a prison, an abandoned house, a spaceship or an archaeological site. The atmosphere is often enhanced by background stories, props and special effects to make the experience more realistic and exciting.The concept of Escape Rooms originated in Japan and has become popular in Germany since 2013.
