There may be one escape room or there may be multiple that you have to try to escape from by solving puzzles. There are 4 different escape rooms, one of which is named “Submerged.” For this room, the goal is to “unlock the mystery to discovering a mystical relic said to grant good fortune”. *Photo Courtesy of
