Sometimes it can be fun to be trapped

A dimly-lit room with body parts and seemingly random words strewn on the walls. On your right, behind a locked door, you can make out eerie static coming from a radio. Putting the clues at your disposal together, you solve a puzzle and the locked door creaks open. What mysteries lie behind? Are you any closer to escaping? What will you do?

That’s part of the experience that awaits you in “Escape from the Mental Ward”, the most popular of three scenarios at Trapped.SG, which touts itself as Singapore’s No.1 real escape room attraction, housed at *SCAPE, 2 Orchard Link #02-20 to 22.

In this particular scenario, you are an intern at the Mental Hospital who has heard rumours of notorious mental patients being housed in the cordoned-off ward before it was shut down. You investigate and find instead that it is the sinister doctors and nurses who may be the crazy ones. Will you manage to escape or will curiosity kill the cat…

Fancy a different scenario? You can also try “Escape from Pulau Tekong” or “The Purge: Real Escape Room”. Together with up to nine other friends, you have 60 minutes to escape by solving puzzles, finding hidden clues and uncovering mysteries.

And with Trapped.SG having recently gone through months of revamping itself – introducing new technologies to match the mysteries and puzzles of the various themed games – you can be sure your intellect will be put to the test. Indeed, Trapped.SG claims that no one has yet escaped without the help of any lifelines (players are armed with a handheld telephone that they can use to dial for assistance, in the form of clues).

Looking to spend quality time bonding trapped with your family? Trapped.SG promises good, wholesome fun – just visit their website for information on which rooms are suitable for kids. With the games hardly requiring any physical exertion, Trapped.SG has welcomed children as young as seven years old and elderly persons too.
