There’s a new trend making everything from kids’ birthday parties and date nights, to corporate team events more exciting and suspenseful…an escape room! An escape room is a physical adventure game where you and other participants are locked in a room and use clues and props within the space to solve a puzzle within a set time limit. In order to be successful you need strong time management, teamwork, and persistence! Even if you don’t make it in time, you’ll still have a blast, and you’ll have stories to share during dinner afterwards! Check out any of the escape rooms below, located all over the state of Iowa, for an energizing activity that’s out of the ordinary and unique! Good luck!
