Overview

The rules here are so simple that they're laid out right in the business's name: 60 to Escape. Small groups of friends, family members, or coworkers are locked in a room, where they have only an hour to use problem-solving skills and teamwork to escape. Players can select from a variety of scenarios to challenge themselves with.

Went with a pre-teen group and they had a blast. At their level but always challenging and definitely age appropriate for anyone. Thanks for another "fastest hour of my life!!!"

Such a fun time. Don’t delay asking for clues as there is no penalty. Bomb room especially as it is difficult.

I believe it was $20 each. Well worth the mental exercise and cheaper than a bar tab.

Our recommended age for a group is 14 and older. However our games can be incredibly fun for younger players who are participating as part of a family.
