We decided to keep the challenge Japanese and enjoyed the Samurai escape. The Nazobako Live Escape is now a global franchise, but the Nazobako Live Escape in Asakusa offers three escapes 1.

Nazobako Live Escape, Asakusa – One Hour Fun for Teens and Older

Basically, you pay to be locked in a room for up to one hour and work your way through various question and activities to breakout. The goal is to break out quickly. You can ask for hints along the way but time will be added to your final breakout time for each hint. We asked for three hints and broke out in 40 mins. I guess 40 mins is pretty good, but we did not know that at the time.

I found the Great Escape very challenging and if not with my son would have never found my way out. If you love mysteries, brain teasers and calculations you will do well. If you do not like time pressure, then skip.
