Over 40 different companies across the country are offering up to 50 percent discount on escape room experiences during the week which aims to promote escape rooms.

An escape game or room follows a concept which is already well known around the world and is gaining in popularity across Portugal.

The idea is very simple: a group of people are locked in a room and have only 60 minutes to work out, following various clues, how to escape.

Katie, from Escape One Algarve said: “In 2019 there are more than 50 escape game businesses in Portugal. But still, less than 5 percent of the population know that they exist! The escape games of Portugal have worked together to bring you the third edition of Escape Game Week.”
