Escape New HavenGalleriesPrice Point: $$We Offer: Private Event Space
Picture this: You’re locked in a room along with 1-8 other people. Maybe you’re with your friends, family, or coworkers; maybe you’re here with your significant other; maybe you’re in this with a bunch of people you’ve never met. The clock is ticking: You have 60 minutes to escape. You look around the room — a locked tool chest; strange markings on the wall; books with their pages torn out… What does it all mean? You can only hope that by working together, solving puzzle after puzzle, you and your teammates will find a way out.
The room escape genre of entertainment has existed in the virtual world for decades, from the cult hit Myst (1993) on Mac OS to the wildly popular Flash game The Crimson Room (2004). In 2007, a Japanese company was the first to turn the video game concept into a live action activity venue; since then, room escape has swept through Asia, Europe, and the United States, attaining wild popularity in New York as recently as 2014. The premise is simple: You and your team are trapped in a room, and you have to get out. But it isn’t so easy — you won’t find that final key to that final door until you solve a series of puzzles (visual, aural, kinetic, and more)… and you only have 60 minutes to do it. Those few who escape (only 20% here at Escape New Haven) win eternal glory — and, if they escape exceptionally quickly, a place on our leader board. Those who don’t… well, it stings a little bit to lose, but you’ll have such a good time that you’ll be determined to come back for more.
