Rockville Escape Room, Rockville MD.

Escape rooms have been popping up all over the DMV area over the past few years. This year, Rockville Escape Room opened its doors to the public. Groups of 2-10 people can sign up try out one of four different rooms. The current rooms available include Pharaoh's Quest, The Great Diamond Heist, A Pirates Quest, and The Mad Dentist. They also have several other rooms that will be opening soon. See their website for age restrictions and the number of participants allowed for each one.

The purpose of this activity is to use skills, smarts, and teamwork to crack the clues that are found throughout the room to help you escape. Each room has a 60 minute timer that is shown on a screen. If the timer runs out before you get out, you lose. The clues are helpful, but if you think that it is going to be simple to crack the codes, and find your way out, you are going to be surprised. The clues are definitely breakable, but also provided a true challenge.
The staff provides you with a walkie talkie so that you can receive help up to three times while you are in the room. Those clues should help propel you forward to the next task. During my group's 60 minutes, we made it through all but two clues before our time ran out.  Despite not "escaping the room," all participants had a lot of fun.  I definitely think this activity is geared towards students high school aged and older.

Cost: $29 dollars per person
