Bomb Squad

Bomb Squad is an adventure game, similar to an Escape Game.
However, it can be played anywhere (you may not be in a room if booked at Break Out Zone).
Warning: No actual explosive materials are used during this game.

You are a member of the Tactical Support Unit and you've just been dispatched to the report of an explosive device.
Your team must comb through the reports and evidence to find the possible suspects, locate the device and disarm it before time runs out!
Your team must act quickly when civilians are around to keep them safe and away from the device.

Do you have what it takes to be a member of SWAT?
