WHAT WE DO
We believe that “Flow Is King”. The concept of flow became our core value and we
trigger this fascinating feeling by creating a game that is very immersive and that
really WOWs our guests. We are working hard on making our brand and this new form
of live entertainment viral in the United States.
The point of an escape room game is for a team to escape from locked rooms within
a specified time period – 60 minutes at PanIQ Room. Our games are inspired and
developed based on the flow experience, which is the synonym of “being in the zone”
in positive psychology, as Hungarian-born Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, the father of
the theory puts it: “Flow is completely focused motivation”.
The experience takes away players’ real life worries and places them in a different world.
If looking for something unique that will entertain both adults and kids then live escape
room games are a perfect choice for spending quality time together. Escape games garantee
an unforgettable experience for friends, couples, families, birthday parties and
corporate team building events.
Live escape games have become one of the most popular corporate team building activities
in the last couple of years. The nature of the games of this type, which involve problem
solving, creative and logical thinking as well as teamwork in a fun and challenging
environment, makes PanIQ Room a perfect and the most original choice for hosting team
