We had the amazing opportunity to test out, with fellow media, the latest craze to hit South Africa – Hashtag Escape. Run by Christopher Tsatsarolakis and Stratis Kouvdis, located at 39 Grant Avenue, Norwood, Johannesburg, Hashtag Escape offers South Africans a new and unique experience.
Essentially, you and a team of 3-6 friends are locked in a mysterious room… Once your team enters the room, you will have 1-hour to solve various riddles and puzzles in order to escape the room.
Granted, being locked in a room can be slightly daunting for some; however, the team at Hashtag Escape monitors the room constantly. This is done by Closed Circuit Television in order to make sure the players are safe at all times. In addition to the safety of the players, the team also uses the system to relay hints and tips… Just in case your team is struggling.
Overall, Hashtag Escape is well-worth checking out… It’s fun, interactive and a great friendship/team building experience. The two main rooms have been previewed in the videos below; however, the team is developing a third room, which – from what we have been told – is going to blow your mind!
