Ah, room escape adventures. As we noted before, they may not be taking the world by storm, but there are more of them all the time. In October, we noted that a room escape adventure was taking up residence in Ferndale
, and described the experience. It's a kind of participatory drama, somewhat like those murder mystery scenarios
you might find yourself roped into as part of a corporate team-building exercise or an offbeat date night.
But this new entry, from Escape Plans LLC, asks participants to figure out how to exit a room with a zombie. Hence the name Trapped in a Room with a Zombie
. The trapped people have one hour to figure out how to get out of the room, because every five minutes the chain gets a foot longer, and the zombie gets that much closer to eating your brain.
Needless to say, the zombie, the escape narrative, and any and all brain-eating are completely fictional.
