There is something for everyone – mystery fans, those who want to relax their bodies, those who like water frenzy and those who are interested in sports history.
Chata Tajemnic Escape Room, Szczyrk
We recommend to mystery lovers Escape Room – Chata Tajemnic located in Szczyrk. Several scenarios of fun have been prepared for the visitors. So you can play the role of the best students of magic school, stray tourists for whom the biggest attraction of Szczyrk is escaping from a mountain hut of a highlander – murderer, descendants of a researcher of writing and culture leading the life in Yucatan or create an anti-terrorist team aiming at neutralizing a terrorist group. But, unfortunately, the time to solve the mystery and leave the room is limited!
