Surely there will always be something we haven't tried or done, but we may like it. Such is, for example,  solving puzzles in innovative escape rooms.

Just mentioning their name in a conversation arouses interest in young and old, and it turns out that they themselves are just like that. They are invented  in order to stimulate the logical thinking of the people in them , to awaken their imagination, to make them work in a team and most of all for fun.

The idea originated at the beginning of the  21st century and due to the great interest it spread quickly.  It gained great popularity. In some cities, in addition to such rooms, which are open every year, festivals are organized where people can  have fun for free.

The rooms are different in theme, but  the purpose and the rules are always the same.  They can be made on the model of a video game or a movie.

This adventure requires neither specific knowledge in a given area nor the use of physical force.  The riddles are interesting, and often the answer is simple.

An important condition is  not to enter the same room more than once,  because you are thought to have solved the riddles and will no longer be interested.

It is also good  not to reveal the mysteries of the room when telling about the experience,  so that the next participants can experience all the expected emotions completely. It is in order to ensure this that a declaration is signed for the protection of the secrets of the room.

These rooms are a real presentation of games that require just that -  to leave the room solving puzzles .

If you have chosen to  use your time in this way,  consider your tactics in advance. It is good to assess your qualities earlier and to distribute relatively the tasks you will look for a solution.

7. Work in a team

Work in a team and  don't let emotions get the better of you  reason.  The goal is to have a good time, not to have fun. Be focused and  don't just look for the complicated possible answers.

Both in life and in the room, there are few but  really simple mysteries.  Be in a good mood and share it with others. Do not look for flaws, but be real and yourself.

8. Discover valuable qualities in your partners

This different experience  guarantees positive emotions.  It will surely bring you even closer to your friends or colleagues. In this way you will  discover new things for others  that you did not know and everyone will stand out with something different.

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!

Teo and Sonya

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!). :)
