Try Orlando's Escape Game For an Unusual (and Challenging) Night Out

The Gold Rush Room at Escape Game Orlando.

The Escape Game Orlando is a challenging adventure game where there's only one goal: to escape the room in 60 minutes or less or suffer defeat. The game is perfect for gamers who want a real-life adventure, groups of family and friends looking for a thrill, company team-building events or couples who don't mind teaming up with and putting their trust in unpredictable strangers.

Challenge Your Brain and Let Your Inner Sleuth Out

Players in groups of 2 to 8 work together to solve puzzles, locate clues, crack codes and figure out riddles to complete the game's objectives and escape before time runs out. The adrenalin-boosting, fully-immersive experience will challenge even the strongest of minds and wills.

Having said that, the ultimate goal is to have fun. As Helize Vivier, owner of Orlando’s CREATE180 Design, says, “For those of you that might be a little intimidated by the name, don't be. The game is awesome fun with well-developed challenges centered within really cool storylines and physical venues.”

How Does It Work?

You and your teammates will be taken to a room, given instructions and a backstory, and then locked inside with a few basic supplies. The clues and riddles hidden throughout the escape room provide all you need to escape, but can you get out in time?

This unique experience requires everyone to work together. There's no time for panic, even as the clock ticks down. But don't worry, the game isn't dangerous, claustrophobic or scary.

The Escape Game Orlando Rooms

New games are added periodically, so even if you've experienced all of the current games before, that doesn't mean your adventure is over. Every room is different, with different clues and a different backstory, so you can come back time and again.

Gold Rush

Gold Rush is the newest addition to The Escape Game Orlando. The backstory for this room is that a greedy gold prospector, Clyde Hamilton, was a gambler who bet against the wrong people. Now he's missing, but you've been tipped off to where he stashed his large collection of gold. Unfortunately, so has the mob, and you've only got one hour to find the gold and get out before the gangsters arrive.

Gold Rush is for 2-7 players and is rated 8/10 difficulty.

The Heist

If you've got a bit of detective in your blood, you'll enjoy The Heist game. In this challenge, a famous piece of art has gone missing, and your team has to solve clues and puzzles to recover the masterpiece. If you succeed, you'll receive fame and glory, but if you fail, you'll end up in the slammer, treated like a common criminal.

The Heist is for 2-8 players and has a difficulty rating of 8/10.

Classified

Classified has the easiest difficulty rating, but don't let that fool you. You and your team of anti-terror agents have to stop a major international terrorist by sorting through clues and gathering intel on the impending attack. You can save the world in this thrilling mission by getting inside the masterminds' heads, or you hang your head as the destruction unfolds.

Classified is for 2-7 players and is rated 7/10 difficulty.

Prison Break

Prison Break is the most difficult of the escape games, so only attempt it if you think you've got what it takes to solve challenging puzzles and find a way out in less than 60 minutes. The game is set in 1955, and you've been wrongfully accused of a crime and sentenced to life in prison. Your cell once belonged to an inmate famous for disappearing without a trace. But did he really disappear, or did he find a way out? It's up to your team to figure out what really happened and hopefully get out the same way he did.

Good luck.

Prison Break is for 2-6 players and has a difficult rating of 9/10.
