More than other place in the country, Seoul is full of escape rooms everywhere you go. The Mystery Room Escape over in the Hongdae area has an especially neat setup that gets your imagination going for visitors to get even more absorbed in the experience. Get into the role of detective and work to solve the puzzles and before you know it, that formidable wall that was once there will have gone away. But be careful not to get too into the puzzle-solving or you might just miss your window of opportunity!
