The Amazing Escape is a must-try activity for adventure seekers. Players can expect to be locked in a room, and they must solve puzzles in an attempt to escape the room before the time runs out. You can book the whole place if you want a private escape room with just your friends and family, or you can meet new people and work together to beat the clock.
If you prefer virtual reality, The Amazing Escape has a VR room that uses a headset gaming system rather than a live escape room experience. No matter which activity you choose, it's sure to get your adrenaline flowing.
Outdoor Explorers
