Escape rooms - safe entertainment even during a pandemic

The adventurous spirit does not disappear even in times of crisis. Despite  the limited opportunities for travel, gatherings and visits to various interesting places,  there is an option for entertainment where nothing is risked. Escape rooms are safe entertainment even during a pandemic. They have perfect conditions for compliance with all measures and maintaining impeccable hygiene.

What are escape rooms and why are they safe?

 Escape rooms  (escape room) are gaining more and more popularity. This is actually a game that usually involves no more than six people. The challenge is that you find yourself locked in a room, and your task is to get out of there for a certain amount of time, which is usually an hour. There are hidden  keys for all closed doors in the room.  There are also various hints and mini puzzles that guide the players.

 The themes of the different rooms are varied,  for example, the ability to search for hidden treasure in an unfamiliar place or guess spy codes to open locks and locked boxes. Some of the plots are  inspired by movies and computer games.

You can try to escape from prison or find yourself in space. The game can become a time machine and be transported to the  Roman Empire or to Egypt from the time of the pharaohs.

The tasks can be logical, mathematical, historical, linguistic and from other fields. The basic idea is to deal with the easiest obstacles first, and then solve the big mystery so that you can finally get out.

The very essence of the game makes escape rooms safe in a pandemic. First, the number of participants in the game is limited - between 2 and 6 people who choose themselves. This is usually a family or close friends and colleagues  who usually spend a lot of time together.

While they are in the rooms, no one else enters them. Only if you explicitly wish, you can use an animator to be with you in the room during the game. Second, even in the room itself there is an opportunity to  maintain a distance between the participants . And third, between games there is time in the rooms to do a complete disinfection.

Escape rooms at Lucky Bansko left us an unforgettable winter memory! We cannot wait to organize our next winter vacation here again with the kids!


It was a wonderful adventure! We have traveled a lot but we don't have much of escape room experience so far! Thanks to the escape rooms at Lucky Bansko, we actually consider going for more!

We went out in 35 minutes! Extreme adrenaline! Special thanks to the organizers, the decor and the atmosphere were great!


In fact, there is a lot of exploration and trickness in the rooms. Each of the adventures is unique, and I felt like playing them differently. I cannot tell which room is my favorite, but I really liked parts of both. Unfortunately, I cannot describe them without revealing some of the surprises (sorry!). :)
