Enlist your family for a real-life brain teaser as you work together on a fun escape room adventure! Great for when you need break from outside, you can head to one of the escape rooms in the Annapolis area.
What are Escape Rooms
These mystery driven puzzles have become super popular in the last few years. The idea is quite simple and even kids as young as 6 can join in. Each room has a themed story and it is filled with objects around that theme. It may be the study of an explorer or the lab of a mad scientist. You are given 60 minutes to follow clues and solve puzzles that are found within the room in order to open the exit door. Your room will have a staff member or monitor outside to help you get started and assist if you get stuck on a clue.
If you don’t escape before time is up, the monitor will come in and explain the rest of the clues. These are great at getting groups to work together for a common goal. Check out the escape rooms below that are near the Annapolis area.
