#2 – Lockdown Escape
12571 Bridgeport Road, Unit 170
Cool technical effects–both visual and audio–can make a simple escape game incredibly exciting. That’s exactly how the rooms are designed at Lockdown Escape on Bridgeport Road. There are four different rooms here, and for each you get 45 minutes to escape. That means you’ll need to work a bit faster, be a bit brighter, and not get frustrated during fast-paced gameplay. And, listen up escape aficionados, not all the puzzles here are lock-based which is a huge plus, and a lot of them are mechanical. The price per person is $25.

#3 – Mr. J’s Escape
8077 Alexandra Road, Suite 205
When you start to get fed up with lockboxes and the same old number problems, that probably means you’ve been playing too many escape games. But that’s also why Mr. J’s Escape is one of the best in the biz. They have three rooms—Vampire Hunter, Assassination, and The Lost Tomb—and what they lack in storyline they make up for and then some with knockout puzzle design. Forget the lockboxes, these escape rooms feature some really neat high-tech tricks. The price per room is $25, except for Assassination which is $35 and has an 80-minute time limit. Needless to say, it’s the most challenging one!

Sometimes you pick your escape room because there’s gelato in the waiting room—and there’s nothing wrong with that.
