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!

Did not know what to expect for this experience, but could not have had more fun. The hosts were all fabulous, friendly, and helpful. I highly recommend trying this and will be back with a group to try another room.

I've been to two places before and this has yet been the best and most challenging experience! We didn't make it out of the Gallery but this makes me want to try out the other rooms too. Can't wait to go back!
