RoomRaider SG is a service provider of Real-Life Escape Room Games, with a total of 6 themed rooms. Promising an immersive sensory (visual, tactile, auditory) experience, RoomRaider SG opened in Singapore in December 2013. Their rooms are ingeniously designed, created with a team of special effects set designers, sound engineers, and puzzle masters.

RoomRaider SG allows a total of 45 minutes of playing time within the rooms, with a further 10 minutes of miscellaneous time for briefings, phototaking, storing personal items, or waiting. Briefings are carried out by staff face to face, and they provide the background and story of the room you've selected. No hints are given at the beginning of the game, though the briefings are comprehensive, they're mostly safety related. Recommended team size for each room is between 4 - 8 people.

Rates at RoomRaider SG is SGD $28 per person during peak periods, and SGD $22 during off-peak periods, marginally more expensive than elsewhere. While RoomRaider SG provides lockers for storing of personal items, the lockers themselves are rather small. The game rooms are immersive, really getting you into the story and setting, with tricky room design and layouts, alternate light and darkness, and use of high technology including lasers, radio signals, magnets, and even the use of props that change with temperature! They don't have staff dressed as ghosts within the rooms, which means they're family-friendly!

Staff at RoomRaider SG are efficient and helpful, but even asking for hints is discouraged. This leads to teams being heavily self-reliant, and also adds to the mood by creating more pressure. We held our corporate event at RoomRaider SG, and coordinating with staff is hassle-free, though I find it odd that they only accept payment through cash, NETS, or direct bank transfer. Staff initally overcharged me, but when I spotted the problem and told them, they were quick to rectify this. Overall, had a good experience at RoomRaider SG!
