This is the list of games recommended by China Escape Game Association(EGA).
The first thing you should know as an enthusiast want to play escape games in China, is that ALL games in China is in Chinese. You would need comprehensive ability for Chinese not only in reading but also in listening.
The second thing you should know is that most of the escape room company use Dianping for their ticket system in China. So you would need an account on Dianping and a local mobile phone to book tickets. That’s why the following list is only in Chinese and the ticket link is all mostly Dianping. If you can’t understand Chinese, be sure to find a local friend to assist you for translation and book the tickets through Dianping.
Third, you should know most of the good rooms are in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. Many people would think of Hong Kong when visiting China, and there are games in English in HK indeed. But the games are just OK, which are mostly designed by franchise system company (ex. Freeing HK) around year 2015. If you want to play well-designed and advanced escape rooms, visit this three cities. They are famous for different reason, Beijing’s rooms really like to have actors and they did very good jobs on combining immersive theater elements in to escape rooms. Shanghai’s rooms are good in automatic rooms with well function electronics. They also did a great job on the narrative, and for some reason many of them are horror theme. Guangzhou is especially famous for the horror theme, 9 out of 10 good rooms are horror.
