Room Escape Adventures, New York City

4.9
Want a new way to hang out with buddies, impress a date and make new friends? Live room escape is an adrenaline-inducing, team-based puzzle solving experience. A group of players trapped in a room tackle a sequence of mysteries to unlock the room within an hour.

We aim to be the coolest, most beautiful room escape experience in one of the greatest cities in the world. We are located in Manhattan's Korea-town, widely known for its many excellent shops and restaurants. We're just steps away from the Empire State Building, Penn Station, and Herald Square.

Having partaken in other room escapes, we felt compelled to offer our own venue with more beautiful, more artistic, and more sophisticated puzzles meeting the standards of New Yorkers.

Our first goal is to design puzzles that engage more than your visual senses. You will listen, feel and even smell the objects in a room to figure out the key to exit.

Our second goal is to create a beautiful experience. We ask ourselves: if Apple were to design a room escape, how would it look? We focus on refining puzzle details for enhanced customer experience. Even if the players don't break out within an hour, we still want them to have a delightful experience.

Our third goal is to create the rooms based on themes of popular literature, such as the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. We want players to experience these timeless works through puzzles, in a more modern and interactive fashion.

  • This is similar to the other "escape from the room" puzzle adventures, but with an added twist--there's a ZOMBIE locked in the room with you! Basically, the zombie is tied to a chain that lengthens 1' every 5 min, and if you are touched by the zombie, you're dead/sent to a time-out zone. Having done some non-zombie puzzles before, I'd underestimated what a difference it would make to have a zombie lunging around the room. The growling and hissing was a major distraction, and we had to lure the zombie away from the clues we wanted to see. In the end, we did escape but it was pretty nerve racking!
