Based on the concept of live online games, this real life adventure location can guarantee you a wonderful and unforgettable experience with friends and family.

If you’re one of those Sherlock Holmes fans who have long been planning to test their secret detective skills and prove the mettle of your mind against the race of time, then Mystery Rooms is one of the perfect places that deserve to be on your must-visit list. Located at Rajouri Garden, you can easily reach the location by road or taking an e-rickshaw from the Rajouri Garden Metro station.

The place is situated on the ground floor of the building and plays around with the concept of escaping out of a difficult situation. It applies a combination of puzzles, riddles, and codes to unlock and escape out of every situation. It has a variety of games in increasing levels of difficulty.

The games that are currently available in the Rajouri Garden centre include Hurt Locker, Lockout, Abduction, and Cabin in the Woods. Beginning with the easiest one, Hurt Locker is a game where you are required to diffuse bombs that have been left behind by terrorists. In Lockout, a game that’s more difficult than the former, you begin as a wrongly convicted prisoner who has to escape from jail. In Abduction, which is the second most difficult game – and the game that we tried our hands at – you are a political personality of your country who has been kidnapped by terrorists and have to escape before your country’s administration bows down. In the most difficult game, Cabin in the Woods, you have to enter into a forest to solve a murder mystery. In all the above games, you get only an hour to escape out of the situation.

The cost of having this experience varies in accordance to your team size and timing of the visit. On weekdays (Monday to Friday) the charges for two, three, and four persons is INR 900, 800, and 700 per person respectively. For a team size more than five, it’s 600 per person. On weekends and special holidays, the charges for two and three persons is INR 1000 and 900 per person respectively. For a team size more than four, every person has to pay 800. While the minimum team size is two, the maximum team size can include only eight persons.

Our team tried our hand at Abduction. A team of three people, as the time was racing against us, we realised that we had overestimated our detective skills, finding out that everything was connected somehow and that no clue or object was useless. Nevertheless, we managed to unlock three out of four stages of the room within the given time, an exhilarating feat.

Do visit this place with your friends, as you’ll take back an experience that you won’t forget!

BITS Pilani recently conducted the BITS Open Sports Meet(BOSM), its annual sports fest from the 18th-22nd of September. The fest, in its 30th edition witnessed record attendance as well as participation. Colleges from all over India descended on the golden sands of Pilani to give stellar performances. Many new sports events were added to the itinerary. BOSM also hosted its first ever prof-show, a music concert by the immensely popular electro- indie band “The F16s”. The organizing clubs and departments then kept the crowd entertained with numerous fun games and events- like Human Foosball, zorbing, street football and Anti-Chess. The renewal of the LAN gaming competition was a hit as well, witnessing huge crowds either to play or just enjoy the action!


Several colleges from DU had participated in BOSM this year. Shri Ram College of Commerce clean swept all 3 categories in the Chess competitions. The basketball teams from SRCC also put forth telling performances on the court and deservedly won the boys’ event and narrowly lost out in the finals in the girls’ event. The boys beat the equally amazing Hans Raj in the final. Sri Venkateswara, or Venky as their fans here called them, comfortably won the football event beating BITS Dubai in the final.


The fest was a roaring success, right from the opening ceremony to the finals on the last day, everyone who attended had been thoroughly entertained. The rain, as is customary during every BOSM, tried to throw the spanner in the works on the opening day itself, but the sheer enthusiasm of the audience and the resilience of the participants and the organizing committee was enough to chase the clouds away and BOSM went off just as planned.

How the fest betters itself next year, only remains to be seen.The success it had this year was unprecedented.
