Hi! I’m Lori Ballen, author of this blog post, and I just had my first escape room experience. My teenager had been a few times and she and my adult daughter surprised me for Mother’s Day. You must try one of the many escape rooms in Las Vegas. [Groupons Below]
Our ExperienceWhat FUN!!! While they picked the hardest room in the place, we didn’t worry about that. We just focused on solving one puzzle at a time.
An escape room is a physical room (or linked rooms) that have multiple puzzles and clues to guide you and your team to “escaping’ the room. One by one, you and your teammates work to solve these puzzles and fine keys to unlock more puzzles with a goal to escape the room.
In our case, it was fascinating to watch each of us bring our strengths to the room. One of us was good at solving clues, another at deciphering codes, and another at predicting what was next.
Sadly, none of us were great at the math problem that held us up for 15 minutes. ?
While we didn’t solve our great mystery, we had a BLAST trying. And now, I wish I hadn’t let the guy tell us how it all ended, because I would grab a groupon and go back and finish it.
Luckily, there are a lot of escape room mysteries in Las Vegas.
