Birthday Party New Best Thing

Birthdays - the more elaborate or expensive or both come with  bragging rights as to most outlandish, or expensive, or imaginative birthday gala.  This popped up this morning in some thing else (Shiloh Jolie-Pitts' 13th birthday if you must know  She says she is gender fluid.)  This new must do is The Escape Room Puzzle.

A small group of guests - seven to a dozen - are locked in a specially designed room such as a submarine or a bank or some Jurassic simulation.  There are puzzles to disclose clues to help the prisoners find the exit or the key to the exit.  A clock loudly ticks away 60 minutes which is all of the time allotted to escape.  

The sets are done by set designers or theme park engineers, and puzzle masters.  Escape Rooms are billed as live entertainment.  The fee per person runs from $28 to $32.  Under 14 years old must have a parent, relative or other approved adult in tow.  Invitees are advised to wear comfortable shoes and dress for air conditioning.

This is all well and good, but I don't think it's ideal entertainment for people with claustrophobia.  Just sayin'
