While visiting San Diego, we decided to try something new and do one of those room escapes we had seen on ads. The Great Room Escape had 3 different types of escape rooms that you could try: Houdini, Zombie, and Aztec Rooms. We found a Groupon for this company, which helped lower the price.
There are a max of 10 people for the escape that we chose, which was Houdini’s Escape. At first we didn’t want to do it with other people, since we thought they would ruin the experience for us, but that was far from the truth. The reality was that it took all of us working together to help solve the various clues. It wasn’t easy! An hour flew by as we unlocked one clue after another.
We sadly didn’t finish. We were one lock away from solving the mystery, but we ran out of time. It’s so easy to waste time on clues that aren’t really clues, but you really don’t know it at the time.
We had a lot of fun. It’s a great activity to do with a group of friends or family. It’s definitely challenging and entertaining.
