Escape rooms have been around for nearly a decade, filled with clues, puzzles, immersive decor, and an overwhelming urgency to GTFO. The immersive game of riddle-solving has been turned on its head by eBay, who’s ringing in the holiday shopping season with a specially constructed escape room in New York City.
Den of Geek was among the first to attempt escaping eBay’s Black Friday escape room, and while we’re admittedly not escape room pros, we managed to get out by a hair on the final second of the game’s time limit. Have a look at our hilarious, stressful adventure in the NYC pop-up escape room by eBay below:
Our reward for completing the escape room? For starters, tons of carbs: gourmet hot cocoa (the absurdly rich, thick kind), a variety of cookies, and plenty of marshmallows. However, the real event in the pop-up’s rear “Zen Room” was a preview of all the insane deals eBay is preparing for Black Friday and Cyber Week. This week through Cyber Monday, eBay shoppers will find thousands of deals on top items, including more than 50 percent off some of the hottest electronics, beauty, fashion, toys, sporting goods and more, all with free shipping. On top of that, eBay will blast out hourly flash deals on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
If you cant make it to the one-day-only escape room pop-up this Black Friday, we’ve got a preview of some of the coolest deals and gifts you can expect to grab on eBay this week.
