Sandeep Pagaria, founder of the Amazing Escape is the man behind the extravaganza. On their holiday abroad, he and his wife came across this concept and got so intrigued that they want to have something similar in the city. In conversation with him, Sandeep expressed, “People want to try new things and this experience definitely meets your expectations”. He also added that they loved the idea of leaving everything aside and being immersed for one hour in a game and were convinced that this was something that people would like and enjoy. To understand the place and its concepts better let’s go through the excerpts:
