At the meeting, the boys and girls had the opportunity to make proposals and express their tastes in terms of leisure. And likewise, the mayor of Fiestas He put on the table various proposals for activities and attractions so that they could give their opinions and choose the ones they liked the most.
One of the proposals of the Department of Parties that most triumphed among the attendees was that of an 'escape room' (escape game) that is played inside a bus conditioned for this purpose. In this game, players have to use the items they find inside the bus to solve a series of puzzles and escape before time runs out.
