Science Centre Singapore’s three escape rooms

At Science Centre Singapore’s escape rooms (officially known as Escape @ Science Centre), challenges get infused with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) concepts and are sprinkled with wonder and excitement.

1. Museum of Humankind

The premise of the Museum of Humankind is that it’s set in the year 2500 when the Earth is about to become completely destroyed by climate change. Imagine you’re one of the last humans alive and aliens have put you on display at their museum. You have to outsmart them and find the last plant to restart life on Earth.

2. Shangri-La

@larabellamyers I think I might have found the most fun escape room in Singapore at the Singapore Science Centre in Jurong! The Shangri La consisted of 4 rooms with darkness, climbing, crawling, sandstorms and laser mazes! Luckily I chose my adventure companions well and we managed to escape… tag someone who you’d bring along with you to an escape room! #science #escaperoom #sciencecentresg #sciencecentre #thingstodoinsingapore #singaporelife #singaporeinsiders ♬ vlog, chill out, calm daily life(1370843) - SUNNY HOOD STUDIO

Up for a concept that has a bit of magic involved? Shangri-La will take you on a journey through a glitchy mythical metaverse called Shangri-La. Feel the adrenaline rush as you overcome earthquake simulations, lasers, and more.

3. Dr. X

Do you find the character of Fear from Disney’s Inside Out relatable? You can actually use this emotion to your advantage in Dr. X. The Science Centre designed it to help you see how fear stimulates the lower brain regions to give you extraordinary strength and speed to survive life-threatening situations. In this escape room, you’ll need to rescue your friend who’s been trapped by an unethical scientist.
