We Didn’t Escape

Billings, MT  High 85  Low 52

Wednesday night we took the kids on an adventure. We went to the Grand Escape Room. This is what their website (www.grandescaperoom.com) has to say about the experience.

escape1 THE GRAND ESCAPE ROOM is a real-life escape game created for groups of 2-10 people. Your common goal is to escape from the locked room in under 60 minutes by finding hidden objects, solving riddles, unraveling clues and working together as a team to plan your escape.

THE GRAND ESCAPE ROOM is challenging for all ages. The best chance of escaping in time requires working together as a team. Players will quickly learn to think outside the box as they communicate and observe the hidden clues that build toward their escape. Will you be able to escape in time?  Plan your escape today!

We had so much fun. We weren’t able to get out in the 60 minutes but because we were the last group for the evening they gave us 10 extra minutes to figure it all out.

You walk into this room and the door shuts. There really isn’t a lot in the room but clues are everywhere. You just have to find them and then decipher them to figure out what they mean. It really gave our brains a workout (which is supposed to be good for us old folks). I’m just glad we had a couple of young minds with us.

I would highly recommend this activity to everybody. I did find where they had one in Phoenix and I’m sure there are more around the US. Do it and have fun.

  9. At least you proved you aren't claustrophobic if the room was small. I am not that good at picking up the subtle clues so it would be to my benefit to pick the right problem solvers to go with me.

    It did sound like fun to Gerry and me. Have to keep out eyes open for one near us in our travels.

    Have fun out there.

  12. What's the penalty for getting stuck beyond the time limit? Do you have to start over again? ;c)
