The sophistication and brilliance of contemporary entertainment industry, be it show business, video games, or interactive physical entertainment like escape rooms, reveals its primary purpose: to distract people from the daily routine by creating an alternative reality that is more vivid, dynamic, and pleasant – albeit not necessarily less challenging – than the original one. When our innate desire to swerve from the beaten path in hope of finding some new, refreshing experience becomes overwhelming, it is termed escapism – the mind’s flight into the realms of game and fantasy.
Ironically, today’s escapism has become so advanced and complex that it has practically doubled on itself: the demand for highly realistic, authentic, true-to-life entertainment experiences is higher than ever. One weird example is the remarkable success of life-simulating video games where all the players ever do is cycle through more or less the same daily activities as they would in real life. Another example – not at all weird because there is absolutely nothing routine about it – is Boxroom’s very own near-real escape room, Operation Saving Hollywood. The quest is as close to the reality as possible, set in the present day and at a location you know all too well unless you are visiting – the city of Hollywood, FL. The circumstances are dire yet, regrettably, far from implausible these days: the city center is under attack, you and your team are called upon to contain the situation, and the experience is immersive – for a real-life escape game around Miami, look no further.
We can help you escape the reality – to a healthy degree and for a time limited to 60 minutes. Will you be able to make it out of our real-life escape room in that time is entirely up to you – but we wish you best of luck and suggest that you bring your best friends!
