After puzzling at The Escape Effect, some locals relax at the nearby Beer Spa.

Oh, and parking is available for free in the lot in front of our entrance. If you do not have a car, consider taking the I-Ride Trolley to stop #29. Or if you are further out, the Orchid Bay Plaza parking lot can be easily accessed by Uber and Lyft rides.

You will NOT find these escape rooms anywhere else in the world! The Escape Effect is a one-of-a-kind attraction that offers the fun and friendliness of a locally-owned small business with the quality of a major theme park. You will remember this experience forever. Come and join us. We look forward to hosting your party soon!
