What do you guys call escape type magic?

Is that the right word for Magic involving lock-picking, escaping from shackles, etc?

Silly question... but I just want to make sure I'm calling it by the right name...

The proper term is escape. I've never cared for it, so personally, I call it boring.

Escapology. Escapologist...one who escapes.

"the guys that use the funny trick locks and mental hospital jackets!"

seriously though - escape artists... there are many books and products focused on the topic.

People love it or hate it... but regardless, it plays an important role in the types of magic. Houdini was famous for escapes.

In Spanish the correct term is "Escapismo"...so in if you translate in english is "Escapism"....?
