While plenty of escape rooms immerse you in a cinematic-like experience, Great Escape Delaware gives you a chance to play around in your favorite movies. Their games springboard off beloved books and films, creating the escape-room equivalent of fan fiction starring you and a few friends. Read on to get a feel for what role you'd like to play:
DaVinci's Revenge: It looks like you and your team of globetrotting cryptologists have finally met your match. Upon investigating a curious murder at The Louvre, things take a turn when the gallery doors mysteriously slam shut. To make matters worse, the killer has just sent you a text to let you know that he'll be back in no less than 60 minutes to give you a real what for.
Shaken Not Stirred: As part of a group of special ops, you and your team arrive at a safe house with a directive to thwart a dangerous terrorist threat. The team soon realizes they are trapped in the house by an evil syndicate called "The Establishment" and they have also planted a bomb. The group must find the secret backdoor to escape to safety.
A Wizard’s Journey: After years of using your powers to rescue people from the perils of evil, you return home on vacation to find a message from your most dangerous enemy — he is holding your best friends hostage at your old school. Your group must find a way to get there and save them within one hour or they will be turned into evil minions.
Walkers: Your group has banded together in the fallout of the zombie apocalypse and is now on the run when you come across a sign for a sanctuary. Once arriving, it turns out to be a trap set by another gang of survivors who have resorted to cannibalism, and you are put in cages. While locked up, zombies begin to attack the site and you are given a chance to escape, but only one hour to figure out how to do so before your captors return or the zombies break in.
A Galaxy Far Away: As part of a team of rebels dispatched to Moon City above the planet of Valpar, your mission is to locate the severed hand of a famous space knight that was lost in a fight with the evil emperor. According to the latest intel, the hand is in the clutches of a dangerous bounty hunter with plans to sell it to the highest bidder who will use its DNA to create a formidable army. After calling in a bomb threat, the hunter temporarily leaves the lair and your team has 60 minutes to find the hand and leave before the hunter realizes it was a hoax and returns.
