Filling the Room

A man was near death in the hospital, so he called his three sons. He gave them equal money, and asked them to fill up their living room entirely with something. Whichever son was successful would receive their father’s entire inheritance. 

The first son bought sticks, and tried to fill the room entirely before he ran out. The second son bought straw, but once again, he ran out before entirely filling the entire room. The third son bought only two things, and was able to successfully fill the entire room and received the inheritance. 

What did the third son buy, and how did he fill the room?

Players have 60 minutes to find the clues and solve the puzzles to escape from one of our award-winning themed escape rooms. Teams have to work together and combine their deductive skills to free themselves before time runs out.

Escape rooms are perfect for families, friends, or corporate groups! An escape game is your chance to be a hero in a living movie. Escape the Room offers the very best escape room experiences in the nation.

All games are private and safe! You only play with those you came with. Team members wear masks and stay 6 feet away at all times. We double-disinfect between games, and hand sanitizer is supplied. We call/text you to enter our lobby when it’s your time to escape the room.
