What Is An Escape Room?

An escape room is an interactive adventure game, meant to bring to life puzzle video games you may have played. You and a group of your friends will be locked inside of a room filled with puzzles, clues and mysterious objects. Intellect, cunning and teamwork will all be needed in order solve these puzzles, find the key and escape. Time is of the essence though, you have only one hour to escape!

Often, these rooms will be centered around a story or theme. For example, our first room, The Virus Outbreak, has players taking the role of researchers attempting to find a cure for a zombie plague that has run rampant though the facility in which they work. Some other rooms may have different themes, such as detectives attempting to solve a murder or bank robbers attempting to break into a bank vault. You may, or may not escape successfully, but rest assured, its fun either way. It’s an experience unlike any other.

Our rooms have a variety of puzzles and will challenge many different skills; intellect, perception, teamwork and communication are just a few. Grab your friends, co-workers or family to experience an immersive adventure that will test your wits. Our escape room is located in Buffalo, New York and is just minutes from the border of Niagara Falls. We provide private bookings for groups of 4-8 people.
