The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. They even let a late member into the room after we started. The games were challenging and dancing for a clue added a bit of fun. Our group would totally go again!

We went to try escape game for the first time with a group of 3 and had tons of fun! The scenario was excellent and challenging. They put a lot of effort in creating immersive experience. Would come back again 100%!

Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic
neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s
top art school. From its assortment of murals to the
occasional amateur street performances, creativity and
expression make up the wild and beating heart of
vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends
at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one
of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets
