What is a VR Escape Room?

A VR escape room is a virtual reality experience that simulates being trapped in a room, building, or other location. Players work together in a team to solve puzzles and find clues to escape the virtual environment. It's like being in a real escape room, but with the added bonus of being in a virtual world where anything can happen and the environments are enormous in size. Want to fight a real (virtual) Dragon? We got you covered.
