Could You Break Out Of This Special Ops-Themed Escape Room?

Ever wondered how you’d cope in the military, or under the pump in a high-pressure special ops mission? Well, the newest escape rooms at The Escape Game, Minneapolis and Chicago are one surefire way of finding out.

The brand new and fully immersive experience tasks you and your team with the challenge of investigating a local market, known to be a criminal hotspot. But the routine check ends up taking a sudden turn, and the fate of the world rests on your shoulders. Will you rise to the occasion?

The Escape Game’s new special ops room uses state-of-the-art technology, including an 82-inch map, kitted out with a touchscreen interface, as well as a range of tactile and digital puzzles.

The Escape Game

“We went with the special ops concept because we wanted to create a very high-tech game that would push our design capabilities – and who doesn’t want to go on a covert mission,” Mark Flint, Co-Founder of The Escape Game told Lonely Planet News.

“Just like if you were really on a covert mission, we don’t tell players exactly what to expect. The plot has a few twists and turns, and you can feel the intensity rise as you progress through the game,” Flint said.

The new special ops escape room is rated an 8/10 in terms of difficulty, so come ready to play. The experience lasts an hour, and can host between two and eight players.

Prices start at $50 (40USD) and bookings can be made via the website.
