What are the most scary escape rooms?

What are the most scary escape rooms? This is a question for those who play escape rooms. Especially teams and players who prefer this type of room, the scary are constantly discussing it. In groups, in online discussions, in polls, where there are escapers who communicate with each other, they ask to learn. What are the most scary escape rooms, is the question they often ask. In which escape rooms will they experience the terror and excitement? Which escape rooms will make you feel the most tension? In which escape rooms in their common phrase ‘will they die’?

The answer will vary depending on the player, team and tastes. It varies depending on their conditions and mood. Of course the overall quality of an escape room is a determining factor. The quality of a room as a conception and construction but also as an investment is something to be seen. Of course there are ways to measure it. Ways that have developed over the years of this form of entertainment.

After all, escape rooms are a Science, as is Art! But the terror, the feeling of worry and uncertainty is not something one can easily measure! There is no “treadmill!” What exists is the uniqueness of the experience! Each player experiences a different experience in each scary escape room. It depends on temperament, his previous experience in rooms, the company with which he participates in the game. It also depends on understanding the story and the plot. The new elements that come with it and the creative use of the old ones play an important role. And of course, his expectations are always important. The reviews he reads, the opinions of the people he trusts and the ads play an important role in this.



Horror escape rooms

Scary escape rooms have been widely spread lately. A scary escape room is dominated by a sense of fear, which is also the main “competitor” of the players. The spooky story of the room defines its themes, scenes, objects and puzzles. It also determines the type of flow and of course the role of the actors, when they exist. Each escape room is a unique experience. Even if the same room exists in different locations or franchises, it is never the same. Of course scary escape rooms have several things in common:

  • Scary subject.
  • Sets – constructions.
  • Lighting.
  • Visual effects.
  • Sound effects and eerie music.
  • Scary performances by actors, with or without jumpscares.

But the originality of each room lies in the way game designers have managed to combine all these elements. The ways they have found to connect the atmosphere with the flow, integrate the different aspects of the experience into one whole. This is a key element of the Horror experience that the scary escape rooms suggest. Everything that gets you out of the comfort zone, causes you to be afraid. Anything that is unfamiliar or different from your expectations, causes a feeling of uncertainty and anxiety. On top of that, the designers of scary escape rooms create unforgettable horror experiences!



Escape room thriller

In Greek there is a peculiarity in the use of the term “thriller”. Especially for older generations, the word “thriller” is synonymous with “horror movie”. If a movie has elements of Horror, Supernatural or Human, we will call it a thriller. Similarly, when we talk about escape room thrillers, most mean scary escape rooms. Indeed, especially for Terror escape rooms, they mean escape rooms influenced by Terror films. Supernatural phenomena, curses, spirits and bloodthirsty serial killers are elements of an escape room thriller.

The English language however has a wider use of the word thriller. Whether for a movie or book, or even an escape room, the thriller is not necessarily a synonym for Terror. In fact, we can use the word “thriller” for anything that offers thrills. A Horror movie is definitely a thriller because it offers the element of fear and tension. But there can also be a political thriller full of scripts and power plays. A spy thriller, with an atmosphere reminiscent of competing countries and spies. Also, a war thriller that the enemy lurks in the trenches, but we may never see. A police thriller that has no horror scenes and supernatural elements, but an intense mystery and an impersonal criminal.

So escape rooms can be horror escape rooms, but not necessarily. An espionage or police-themed escape room can be a nerve-thrilling thriller in itself. Neither the visual horror nor the aggressively declared terror of jumpscare is needed. Small details that bring about fluctuations of emotions and activate the brain. The powerful story, which makes the team the protagonists of the adventure. Everything creates strong emotions and memories. In this regard, every escape room can be described as an escape room thriller!
