Escape Room Interactive Gaming

Real-life escape rooms are a type of physical adventure game in which a group of 4 to 8 people are locked in a room and have to use  elements of the room to solve a series of  puzzles, find clues and keys and ultimately  open the main lock to escape. Teamwork and logic are essential in order to escape within the set time limit of 1 hour. Escape rooms are a fun and exciting way to spend the day with family, friends, co-workers, and even new friends. You may be alone in the room, but you are never alone. Our friendly staff will be with you throughout the entire process, for instance, if you need to leave the room or just need a hint.
