From Our Editors
With themes ranging from lighthearted to bone-chillingly dark, Upstate Escapes's challenging escape rooms are designed to entertain just about anybody. Take a closer look at some of the scenarios you can choose from:
- The Bomb: In an alternate reality, the Cuban Missile Crisis has gone south, and your only hope to survive is by breaking into your vacationing neighbor's bomb shelter. Too bad you don't know the combination.
- Return to Sender: The easiest room on offer, this puzzle starts when you receive a mysterious letter with a picture of yourself as a child tucked inside. When you and your friends show up at the sender's home to find out what's up, the door slams shut behind you.
- Fan Rivalry: When you sign up for this room, let Upstate Escapes know who your favorite sports team is. This way you're not just racing the clock—you're competing against your team's rivals, since the staff keeps track of which team's fans have the best record.
- Undead Nightmare: In this room, trapped guests will meet the undead walkers of the earth if they can't figure out the code in time to signal a rescue chopper.
