Overview

The Escape Challenge is a real-life room escape game based on the popular computer and mobile phone escape games. After entering a room with your team, the door is locked behind you. 60 minutes are on the clock! You must work together in order to find clues and solve puzzles that will lead you to your escape. It is part scavenger hunt and part puzzle game. Only about 20% of groups are able to meet the challenge and escape in time!

The group I went with had a great time. It was challenging but so fun! The hints were perfectly timed to keep the pace of the game exciting. Will definitely visit again.

We had a party of 3 adults and one 13 year old. It was tough and we used a lot of hints, but it was a fun way to spend a few hours.

We played all three of their games while in town for a conference. While all the games were fun, the Time Machine was all of our favorites. It was nostalgic of the 90’s with an awesome sound track and excellent puzzle flow.

Took our staff for an evening escape and enjoyed it so much that we took the whole family back a week later to try a different room. The host's were very professional and fun. Will be back to try the other rooms.

We've done these twice now. Once with adult friends and another with our tween kids. Both times we had a blast. Great people...very helpful.

We had 4 people in our group and it was challenging with that small amount. But it was also a lot of fun and great for team building. I'd definitely do this again.

We went for my husband's birthday and brought both sides of the families. Every had such a great time we're actually planning on going again soon. It was challenging but with the teamwork we got it done and had fun doing it.
