Mystery Rooms – Delhi’s New Pass-Time Activity

When I was told that today morning that I had to check out this “mystery room” somewhere near Rajouri Garden, I was a bit bummed out. The first thing that came to my mind was that ‘Bhoot Bangla’ in Appu Ghar and those things were pretty pathetic.

For those who don’t really know what this concept is about—it’s basically a puzzle/situation you’re put into and you have to find clues and figure your way out within a stipulated time. This video will clear up any doubts you might still have.   First of all, finding this Mystery Room, as cliched as it sounds was a mystery.
