Sixty minutes may sound like a lot of time until the pressure of cracking clues and solving puzzle after puzzle begins to get more intense with each passing second. At Exit Strategy, 60 minutes is all that the small teams of friends, family members, or Houdini impersonators will have as they attempt to unlock a tightly fastened door before time elapses and the game is tallied as yet another win for the room and its devious challenges. Escaping from the themed rooms requires keen problem-solving skills as well as a group of two to eight people?depending on the room?that can communicate efficiently while working together to find new clues. Each uncovered clue places teams one step closer to achieving their ultimate goal: unlock the door and flee the room before the countdown ends. Success may earn the group a place on Exit Strategy's wall of fame, although failure may inspire a repeat visit to try again.
