A big emerging trend in gaming is the concept of an Escape Room, a cooperative game that puts you with a group working together to solve puzzles to escape a carefully designed puzzle of a room before a certain time.Paramount Pictures and Skydance have announced they are teaming with AMX and IMC to launch escape rooms at four theaters in major cities around the United States to promote the upcoming release of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Seems like a perfect match to me.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it… The Mission: Impossible Room Escape will only be at all of these theaters for a two day time period, and considering each team will get 20 minutes in the room, there will likely be limited availability — so reserve your tickets now!
