Like many other similar room escape games around the world, ParaPark tests people's mental sharpness by locking them in a room. You have 60 minutes to manage by trying to find clues, solve puzzles and riddles, and hopefully to escape the room. The countdown clock on the wall shows how much time you have left. Every corner of a room has a hint or code and you have to solve the codes together in order to successfully escape the room. ParaPark lets you be another Sherlock. No physical strength is needed, but your brain strength and team working abilities are key to lead the way out.
And don't worry about being scared by some light, voice effect or blood-curling scream like you usually see in the movies. ParaPark is sensational because of its exciting quizzes, jigsaw puzzles pieces and the adventure of team-work.
And you don't need to speak Spanish/Catalan, because the game is available in English as well!
