Being locked inside a room where you must solve a puzzle in order to escape sounds like a scene out of the "Saw" horror film franchise, but many people are willingly signing up to do this and find the experience can be quite fun.

Here's a quick guide to locating some of these spots in the Big Apple. (As for finding your way out of these rooms, you're on your own.)
