Escapology is one of Orlando's hot spots for fun and thrills, located off International Drive in Orlando. In less than 60 minutes you and your friends, family or co-workers select a game and are put to the challenge to find clues to solve your mission and escape. You may have to find the antidote to stop total decontamination, solve the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 or find out who is responsible for a gun battle that led to the deadly shooting at the O.K. Corral Saloon. Every game's goal is to gather the clues, solve riddles, codes and escape the room you started in.
Our mission was to infiltrate Fidel Castro’s palace, locate the secret KGB office and find out who was responsible for shooting down the American plane. As soon as we were given clearance to enter Castro's palace; we were informed that the KGB and bodyguards are 60 minutes away! Our mission starts as we are locked in Fidel Castro's office to answer riddles, discover clues around the room and put together critical intelligence before we are caught!
Grandparents to gamers, co-workers for a team building outing or friends can enjoy a mind challenging game and an evening of mystery. This is not the game of Clue we grew up playing. Professor Plum can't help you and Mrs. White with her candlestick is absolutely useless. You and your team have to use your brains to find keys to open locks, clues to get you to the next set of mysteries to be decoded and solved while that clock counts down rapidly. 60 minutes flew by quickly. Did we have what it takes to escape and solve the Cuban Missile Crisis?...Almost. Maybe next time, we'll perform better. I'm glad the Cuban Missile Crisis was not depending on my eight girlfriends and I to solve. We sure had a great time trying. Maybe we would do better solving the who dunnit at the O.K. Corral Saloon the next time. Escapology is fun for everyone go check it out.
