Things to Do: What is an Escape Room?
Looking for something to do? During this difficult time for our community, there is not a lot to do for entertainment. Chances are you are currently mid-Google to find something to do. Perhaps you’re here to learn a bit more about what an escape room is, if you’d like to play one, and whether or not there will be strangers in your room! (Answers: fun, yes, and never.)
What is an escape room?
Escape rooms are like a photograph – playing one is worth a thousand words! In less than 1,000, we think the best way to describe an escape room is to say that it’s like a mix between a board game and a video game. Also, it’s life-sized. Your game is 1 or more rooms that are themed and immersive based on your game’s scenario. You have 60 minutes to accomplish your mission and win the game.
What is an example of an escape room?
Amnesia: Hoping to earn some extra cash, you have volunteered for an experimental drug trial. After taking the drug, you are told you will forget everything that has happened in the last hour unless you can locate the antidote. You’re not quite sure why, but things start to feel familiar. You start to suspect it is not the first time you’ve done this. How long have you been here? Will this be the time you finally get to the end or are you doomed to repeat the cycle forever…?
What health and safety precautions are you taking?
As always, all of our games are private at no extra charge, so there will never be strangers in your room with you. In addition to maintaining private games, we’re taking a number of steps to ensure escape rooms are as clean and safe as possible.
Your room will be thoroughly cleaned before you enter. We’ve spread out our gaming schedule to minimize groups interacting between games. You’ll experience a contactless check-in to ensure we can maintain 6ft of distance between your group and your game master.
If you have any questions about escape rooms, please feel free to look around our website or contact us.
