Escape Rooms

With the cold weather moving in, the amount of activities and events that you can enjoy on Long Island are limited. So, if you’re looking for a venue to host a birthday party, corporate team building event or just a weekend family outing, it can be tricky to find the right place… until now. Have you heard about the new craze called escape rooms? If not, here’s a full explanation along with two of the best venues to experience it on Long Island.

What are Escape Rooms?

Basically, an escape room is an interactive, physical adventure game. Participants are tasked with solving complex puzzles, riddles and challenges using hidden clues and hints, all in hopes of figuring out a way to escape the room. Usually, the rooms will have a special theme or plot behind them, as well as a time limit on how long the players have to complete it.
