What is an Escape Room?

Escape rooms are an interactive adventure game, meant to bring to life puzzle video games that 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 room, The Seance, has players taking the role of ​private investigators searching for clues to find a missing movie star. 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.

Our rooms have a variety of puzzles and will challenge many different skills; intellect, perception, teamwork and communication are just a few. You may, or may not escape successfully, but rest assured, its fun either way. It’s an experience unlike any other.
