Over 3,000,000 participants have played this game in Japan,China, Taiwan, Singapore, and the United States.
Come try this unique live-action entertainment!

REAL ESCAPE GAME™(REG) is an inventive live brain-teaser event that requires players to cooperate
and use their detective skills to solve multiple mysteries and puzzles, locate a hidden key, and escape from a locked room within a limited time.

The uniqueness of the game is that Real Escape Games place you physically inside the story being told. When you read a book, you can visualize the world being described. When you play a video game, you can be drawn in. But you’re still not physically inside the story. REG successfully combines these elements by bringing the story to you in an active, engaging, and very real way. Just like the adventures you had reading your favorite books as a child, each REG is a window into a narrative world. It’s an interactive tale that you and your teammates face head on. A hero/heroine is always someone else, but in this game, it is actually you.

If you are a person who likes answering riddles, solving complex puzzles, or jumping into an adventure, welcome to the opportunity.

The first REG event took place in Kyoto in 2007 and since then, more than 1,000,000 participants have played in
multiple cities across Japan, China, Singapore, the United Status, Canada, and Spain. The games and events have taken place varied places such as a small room where only 10 people can play, and hundred or thousand players at massive arena venues including the Tokyo Dome stadium, Fuji-kyu Highland Amusement Park, The Queen Mary in California, and AT&T Park in San Francisco. In Japan, the series of TV drama, Real Escape Game TV and movies had been released. SCRAP is pioneering the new genre of Real World Adventure, which has become a driving force in the world. Real Escape Game by SCRAP™ is the registered trademark of SCRAP.
