Online puzzle experiences from Welsh escape room venues

Here’s how you can keep supporting your local escape room during lockdown.

One of the silver linings of the lockdown is the burst in creativity from the escape room community. Owners and puzzlemakers across the globe have adapted to these unusual circumstances with a flurry of innovative and exciting games.

There are a handful of escape rooms in Wales that have followed suit. So if you want to support these venues (and don’t fancy buying a gift card), feast your eyes on what’s on offer.

I’m using the incredibly useful escape room taxonomy from Escape Room Divas in my categorisation of these games
