What Are Escape Games?
Escape Games are a brand new kind of entertainment experience designed for small groups of 2-10 people. Your aim is simple: work hand-in-hand as a team, explore your skills and wits to escape from a hidden room in less than 60 minutes*.

*The Trunk or Treat Escape Room Experience will be a mini version of an escape room designed to provide you an opportunity to see what the excitement is all about.

If you've watched and enjoyed movies like The Goonies, Indiana Jones and Ocean's Eleven, you'll love the real-life adventure of an escape game.

These games put you and your friends in the driver's seat where you have to find and solve clues, puzzles and challenges to see if you have what it takes to meet your objective and escape before time runs out!
