What Is An Escape Game In Orlando Like?

An escape game is a real-life adventure game. You’ll explore the environment and solve challenges to reach some goal, like escaping a dungeon or solving a murder! And you’ll be doing all this with your friends and family as you race against the clock!

Is The Escape Game Scary Like The Movies?

Our goal is for you to have fun. Some of our escape games are brighter and more light-hearted, others are more thrilling.

That said, if darkness is not your thing, please speak with us before or even during the game. Your host will do everything possible to accommodate your requests, including adjusting the lighting and sound to your liking.
