Headquartered in Kyoto, Japan, SCRAP has been creating immersive and adventurous puzzle events. In 2007, it invented the world’s first live action game called, REAL ESCAPE GAME™ in Japan. REGs have been held in Japan and other Asian countries in unique places such as multiple schools, ruined hospitals, amusement parks, stadiums, and churches-and the events have built enthusiasm. In Japan, the series of TV drama, Real Escape Game TV and movies are released. SCRAP is pioneering the new genre of Real World Adventure, which has become a driving force in the world.
The first Real Escape Game in the U.S took place in San Francisco in 2012. Another San Francisco game took place on board a ship, which was a world-first. Also, since the opening the REAL ESCAPE ROOM™, Escape from the Mysterious Room, over 6,000 people tried their luck at escaping in the first year. Despite the highly challenging difficulty of 2 % success rate, all tickets are continuously selling out. The events get popular among people who love something unique and cool. SCRAP Entertainment Inc is the US branch of SCRAP Co Japan. Real Escape Game by SCRAP™ is the registered trademark of SCRAP.
I’ve done several escape the room games and they are always really fun. They’re so different from each other that you can keep going and it’s always a challenge.oreallya462
Did the Pop Star Room of Doom here with a full group of reasonably experienced ppl, and barely made it out. The main draw of the room is that it's very different than traditional escape rooms: the time loop concept was interesting and is why I'm rating this room as high as I am, and I appreciate that they tried something out of the ordinary.Nevin L.
Unfortunately, I found the execution somewhat lacking: the actors were all good, but the main puzzles just weren't that interesting, and there was a particular thing you had to keep on doing through the game that felt like it was unnecessarily added to the room as filler. The game is weird in that there isn't really that much to do in the game in general, so an individual person will probably contribute exactly one key insight since most of the puzzles are based on observation.
This probably is worth checking out for escape room enthusiasts simply due to the premise and novelty of the room, but I imagine that if the idea catches on and more companies starting doing rooms like this (which is honestly not super likely to happen due to the additional cost needed to make this work) then this will end up being a more average experience.
We did the Pop Star's Room of Doom. This is not the escape room for people who love puzzles and the traditional escape room experience. This room is for people who like the sleuthing aspect of escape rooms, can think on their feet, want an interactive experience and want to try a new take on an escape room experience. I would not do this room with more than 4 people as there is definitely a logjam aspect inherent to the room where you will be doing nothing waiting for something to happen frequently if you have more people. I would rate this room medium to high difficulty level. Bring a lot of people who are super observant with you!Tu-Quyen P.
- the actors in the room were so fun and great at improvising as they interacted with us with their snarky responses. I loved this part of the room the most.
- the room left a few of us twiddling our thumbs but I don't know a way around this because of the way the puzzle is structured. Nevertheless, we enjoyed wasting time just using our thinking caps in those moments.
- I find the structure and planning for this room so creative and intricate, I really admire the planning that must have gone into engineering this experience.
- I like how the actors did not try to mislead us with red herrings and drag out the time which some other rooms try to do.
- the hinting system may be tough for those who want hints on command, but we found it worked fine.
We had such an awesome experience playing "Spellbound Supper" last night. Shoutout to our most excellent game master JONATHAN for being just the best. Very pleasant, welcoming, and how he conducted himself as the host/maître d' from start to finish really made this a top-notch gaming experience for our group.Pablo J.
The game itself was very innovative to me. Not sure how they pull it off, but I definitely felt we got our money's worth. For me, personally, Real Escape games have felt very challenging and near-impossible. SS was actually quite solvable -- thanks to Jonathan's gracious assists. We just didn't make it in time, but again, I felt we got our money's worth and got to experience something innovative and fun we'll be talking about for a long, long time.
Minus one star for the condition of the game objects. The projector could have been stronger, brighter, sharper, I suppose. And did not project precisely on the plates. And some of the game objects (like felt and colored masking tape) were coming off whatever the objects they're supposed to be sticking to. Other than that, it was a great evening for all!
My friend recommended to me. I had no idea what is Real Escape game, I have to escape?for what? from what? just many questions in my head. Anyway,I played Spellbound Supper with my 3 friends.Keiko W.
We couldn't complete the game. But important thing is we had a great time to solve the mysteries! What a fun activity I recently discovered.
I thought nice mixture of modern and classic.
At the beginning we had no clue what we had to do. But A kind butler who serve the supper was assist us really nicely:giving us hints. I impressed that they have a real person(actor) to assist and lead the game,wasn't only automated computer system.
I thought it was expensive activity when I purchased it, but after the game I felt great,I'm glad I came!!
I can see this game works for building teamwork skills and own brain stretch. I should bring my boss and coworkers to here. I even became a fun of puzzles because of them. I would love to try other games they have!! highly recommended!
So, so, SO (darned) fun. The Spellbound Supper was a blast for this family of four (kids are 12 and 14). It was quite challenging and we needed a lot of help on some of the challenges, but the staff was great and we got so, so, SO (darned) close to solving the puzzle. Alas. Without giving anything away, this was unlike any escape room any of us have ever done, so it was a fun new challenge for us. Every moment counted.K G.
Even though we weren't successful, it was a fab way to spend an afternoon followed by sushi and ice cream treats in the mall across the street for dinner. The kids even thought it was cool to hang out with their parents all day. Win win!!
