You may have heard about the biggest trend IRL (in real life) gaming that is sweeping through the nation via riddles and clues. Alpena Escape Rooms offers up a thrilling adventure that relies on you and your teammate’s wit and determination to make it out!
What exactly is inside of an Escape room is for you to find to out. Imagine, you are locked inside of a themed room. You now have 60 minutes to figure out how to get out of this room. You scatter, examining every inch of space. A mystery scroll? A blinking light? A footprint on the floor? The slightest clue could mean the difference between solving the puzzle or failing.
Escape rooms are a fun and safe hour-long adventure inspired by escape-the-room video games. With the first escape room opening in 2012, there are now over 1,750 locations around the country! What explains the surge in popularity in such a short time? According to professor of game design and development at Wilfrid Laurier University, Scott Nicholson, “Players are eager to look at something other than a glowing screen and are flocking to games in the physical world for face-to-face engagement opportunities.”
Alpena Escape Rooms is located inside of the Alpena Days Inn on M-32, where two escape rooms await you!
