These days, escape room challenges are all the rage, where participants have 30 to 60 minutes to solve a series of puzzles alongside their team and escape a room in a fun brain game. Right at home in New Haven, we have Escape New Haven, located at 103 Whitney Avenue, New Haven which is about a mile and a half from your 360 State apartment.
A great team-building exercise or just a way to have some fun with friends and family, Escape New Haven has had 20,000 attempted escapes, hundreds of five-star reviews on TripAdvisor and Yelp and has even hosted three engagements,
Escape New Haven currently hosts three separate escape room games, which are the Crypt, the Gallery and the Space Station. In the Crypt, which has a 20 percent success rate, you are members of the crew of a major upcoming movie, “The Crypt.” The director and the star, the famous has-been Holly Mayweather, have been acting strange lately, and odd things keep happening on set, so you’ve decided to sneak in late at night and see if you can find out what’s going on. You have one hour before the security guard comes back to make his rounds.
In the Gallery, which has a 20 percent success rate, your old friend recently got a job at an up-and-coming art gallery in New Haven. Then, less than week into the new job, she disappeared, leaving you only a mysterious letter. Can you discover what happened to your friend?
In the Space Station, which also has a 20 percent success rate, you are a crew of scavengers in space. You’ve discovered an abandoned space station orbiting a distant moon. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to scavenge this station for its four valuable energy crystals. Find the crystals, and while you’re at it, also try to find out what’s happened here. Don’t let your oxygen run out, and keep an eye out for danger.
