Overview

Escape New Haven is New Haven's first and only escape-the-room venue, and an adventure for your mind and senses. Players are locked in a room and have 60 minutes to puzzle their way out, discovering keys and combinations along the way. Explore, adapt, work together, think creatively -- and you just might ESCAPE!

First-rate escape room experience! It's genuinely challenging but doable. Make sure to bring some outside-the-box thinkers. Staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are very well done and really set the tone, and puzzles are diverse and clever.

Escape New Haven had extremely challenging escapes. We went with a team from work and had great fun. The host was fabulous. Knew when to support us - but mostly the team engaged in the challenge. AN amazing experience to build the team.
