About PanIQ Room

PanIQ Room was founded in California, 2014, and it is a registered franchise brand since 2017.

An escape room is a live form of entertainment in which a group of people enter a professionally designed, thematic environment and are given one hour to complete an objective. Objectives may include getting out of the room or finding a specific object by solving puzzles, opening locks, and searching for clues.

An essential element of an escape room game is to maintain the level of adrenaline, which increases in direct proportion to the passing of the time, as well as solving the codes of the creative tasks. No special knowledge is needed for the escape, the games and puzzles are built around logic, common sense, and creativity.

The game is highly interactive, requiring cooperation from all players, which makes it a great team building activity!
