Get ready escape room fans, as there’s a brand new adventure experience that’s just opened it’s doors on JBR .

Located on the Plaza Level in JBR’s Bahar you’ll find TEPfactor. Kitted out like a cave, it comprises of 21 different challenge rooms designed to test your physical, mental and team working abilities. 

Summer bucket list: Dubai’s must-try indoor activities

Made to be played in teams of two to six, the challenges are split into four categories; fitness, patience, skill and logic. Every challenge can be completed in three different ranks of difficulty – bronze, silver and gold and has its own individual time limit. So, you’re against the clock as you take on mind-bending puzzles, balancing acts, tasks requiring patience and team challenges, in order to progress from one task to the next.

After completing four challenges in each category, teams will have to put together clues from the previously completed challenges, to figure out a code that will gain them access to a fifth task.

Here’s what happened when we tried it out:

“This is exactly what people need to boost their energy levels, put their skills to the test and engage with a variety of activities, all in the same venue” says Marwan Shazali, Founder and CEO of TEPfactor.

Be sure to wear comfortable clothes (and shoes) as this is one adventure you’ll be needing them for.
