For years and years, virtual escape games have been the talk of the town all across the globe. From PC games to console games, “room escapes” or “escape games” typically consist of a locked room, objects to investigate or manipulate, and secret hidden clues to discover. The player must use these objects and clues to find a way out of the locked room. Only now, are these types of games becoming a big hit in the real world. The popularity of these PC and console games has led to the development of real-life escape room games all over the world. Within the United States alone, real-life escape rooms have popped up in cities including Houston, Chicago, Charleston, Seattle, New York City, and good ole Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Room To Escape
Room To Escape, just recently opened in Fort Wayne, Indiana. This real-life escape room is a type of physical adventure game in which a small group of people are locked in a room and have to use elements of the room, critical thinking skills, and teamwork to solve puzzles, crack codes, and solve ciphers to escape the room within 60 minutes.
Each of our rooms is designed for small groups of 2 to 6 people. Although there are no firm age limits, we recommend participation for adults and children 12 years old and up, as this is what we had in mind when we initially designed our games. Players under 15 years of age must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older.
Room To Escape is a fun and unique activity for a great range of people, including gamers and groups, friends and families, and companies and events.

Currently, Room To Escape offers two different game rooms to choose from: Time Warp and The Office. While both rooms are challenging and exciting, Time Warp was created to be the easier of the two rooms, while The Office tends to be more difficult. Below, are the scenarios and descriptions of each room:
On your way home, your grandfather asks you to stop by the small corner store to pick up some milk and bread. While looking around the little country store, a dimly lit room in the back of the store catches your eye. You quietly sneak back to the room and walk through the doorway. Little did you know that you had accidentally stepped through a time portal, teleporting you back to the past!
You are now trapped in an old room and must find a way to escape in order to return to the the present day and bring your grandfather his milk and bread. If you do not escape the room within 60 minutes, you will be stuck in the past forever! Your only hope to get back to the present day is to find and solve all of the clues that will unlock the door and send you home safely.
You are at work late, trying to finish a project before your meeting with the boss tomorrow morning. The president of the company is counting on you to help land one of the biggest and most important deals to keep the company afloat. In order to finish your presentation, you needed to gather some important documents from your coworker’s office. You retrieve the documents and head for the door, only to find that it has locked from the outside and you’re trapped inside the office!
You can’t find the key to unlock the door, you don’t know the password to your coworker’s computer, and you left your cellphone in your own office. If you fail to find the key and escape from the office, you will not be able to complete your project and your company will lose its big contract, leaving over 79 employees with no job by noon tomorrow. You must find and unlock all of the clues to escape the office, finish your project, and save the day before time runs out!
More rooms are in the process of being built, so stay tuned and visit often to play all of our different games!
