Where It All Began

New York City’s Escape The Room first offered participants a new social gaming opportunity in October 2013. We call New York City home, as the Big Apple was the first city in which we opened our exciting escape experience. What better place to try a new interactive thought-provoking game than the city with the best culture, an unmatchable tourist scene, and some of the most unique entertainment experiences in the world? New York City is the perfect place to launch and grow our puzzle room escape.

Fun Facts

While we have expanded our opperation all over the country to cities like Chicago, Dallas, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington DC to name a few, the only place you can play the original is right here in New York City. No other location offers The Office, which was the first room we opened back in 2013.

We’re also proud of the fact that we’ve had the honor of hosting some amazing celebrity players, including cast member from popular movies and shows like Star Wars and Stranger Things! Madonna, Hugh Jackman, Michael Cera, and Tina Fey have also tried their hands at our rooms. That being said, very few of those players have succeeded in escaping. Think you and your friends can do better?

Our Escape Rooms

We have five unique escape rooms: The Dig, The Clock Tower, The Submarine, The Office, and The Home. Each room brings a different theme, storyline, group of puzzles and escape route. Each room locks you in with 60 minutes to escape. If you don’t mind taking a trip into the heart of the earth, The Dig offers the perfect ambiance. See how quickly an ordinary residence can become a claustrophobic yet perfectly decorated domicile of doom in The Home. You may be able to escape from work every day, but it won’t be so easy when your time is limited to an hour in The Office. Looking for something a little more wild? Get stuck in a crazy time loop in The Clock Tower or in the depths of the ocean in The Submarine.

Regardless of which room you choose, you’ll have 60 minutes to search for clues and make escape before time runs out. After you’ve successfully triumphed over one challenge, we hope to see you back for the other mysteries that await in our other rooms.
