‘Escape rooms’ have taken Europe by storm and spread from city to city at a high speed. Over just a few years they
have become among the most popular team-building exercises around as well as a hit amongst stag dos and pals’
nights out. To understand the phenomenon, Scan Magazine spoke to Morten Andre Lindquist, the creator and owner of House of Secrets in Oslo, an escape room venue that opened its doors just over a year ago. “The games are for absolutely everyone regardless of age, physical ability or education,” he says. “At House of Secrets, we have had visitors as young as eight and as old as 80.”
