Plan your great escape to Claustrophobia Dubai
Still haven't had your fill of interesting activities in Dubai? This one is sure to have it down pat!
If you love mysteries and live player games, try out Claustrophobia Dubai, the biggest live escape game to open up in Dubai! An interactive quest played in real time, in teams, it requires you and your group to solve puzzles, find clues and use teamwork to find your way out of the room you're locked in. You can play in groups of 2-4 people, while locked up in a themed room with a scenario - it may be a spaceship, a dungeon, a bomb shelter, an Antarctic research facility or anything else - and use your wits and quick thinking to get yourself out. Does anything sound more exciting right now? Yeah, cancel your other plans for the weekend!
