Puzzled? Escape Rooms in Pulaski County USA!

What is an escape room? The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, PA defines escape rooms as:

“an all-new form of entertainment where teams of 6-12 players must use and manipulate their surroundings to escape an enclosed area or achieve a goal within a set amount of time.”

But, how do they work? The gamemaster, who oversees your in-game EXPERIENCE, details the mission to your team. Once your squad is inside the themed room gamespace you will begin scavenging for clues. You could possibly find a lock that needs a key, or a sealed container that requires a passcode to access. Your team will have to work together to solve the puzzles to make your escape before the gameclock runs out.

Escape rooms are exploding in popularity! PULASKI COUNTY now has two game businesses offering rooms that appeal to people seeking a video-game-style adventure in real-life action.

USA Today summarized:

“Factor in quality time spent with friends, the chance to show off puzzle-solving skills, the adrenaline rush fueled by a faux-high-stakes game and a guaranteed photo-op, and you can see why escape rooms have become a popular American pastime.”

ESCAPE room aficionado/blogger David Spira adds “in a world gone digital, it feels so good to do something in real life.”
