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.
Platform 9 3/4: Harry Potter fans take a star turn in this 60-minute story that answers the question, "Where are they now?" It's the annual Hogwarts reunion, but this year has a few surprises in store. It's clear that Voldemort's up to his old tricks, and his death eaters have trapped Harry. Luckily, he's sending you clues through media screens. It's up to you to destroy the seven horcruxes. Can you finish in 60 minutes what took J.K. Rowling seven books to accomplish?
In A Galaxy Far, Far Away: As Luke Skywalker nurses his wounds after his first major battle with pappy Vader, you and a team of rebels are on the hunt to recover his hand and the lightsaber that's still attached to it. A warlord has the hand under lock and key, and aims to create a clone army of jedis with it. You've got an hour to make sure that nefarious plot doesn't come to fruition.
The Agency: As part of a group of special ops working under the name "The Agency," 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.
At Launch Trampoline Park, visitors of all ages bounce, flip, and twirl as they burn calories and defy gravity on four jumping courts—including one designed especially for kids and another for playing extreme dodge ball—comprised of adjoining floor trampolines and angled wall trampolines. There’s also a mammoth crash pad so that you can be assured a soft landing should you attempt any feats of aerial wonder.
Four fun inflatable obstacles also available to challenge and entertain visitors. "The Big Baller" sees visitors attempting to leap across a line of giant inflatable balls, a la the popular television show Wipeout. "The Jump Off" is a BASE-jump-style amusement that safely mimics leaping from a building ledge onto a super-soft landing zone. "Daredevil island" is an ascending obstacle course that ends with a free-fall jumping platform combination unit designed to look like a rocky island. And "Meltdown" is an eight-player action game which challenges groups' stamina, agility, and reactions.
In addition to glow parties and special events, including after-proms and overnight lock-ins, Launch Trampoline Park also offers fitness classes that provide low-impact workouts while incinerating up to 1,000 calories each bouncy hour. For those seeking a break from bouncing, the park has an arcade, café with free WiFi, and a dedicated lounge for parents.
Since its origins in the late 19th Century, the University of Delaware athletic department has transcended simply what happens on the field or on the court. Indeed, the Blue Hens have hatched professional football and basketball stars. The school’s football team has won six national titles, including three during the 1970s, and its women’s lacrosse team once captured back-to-back-to-back championships from 1981-83. But when fans look around during Blue Hens events, they notice more than points being scored or referees feeding the little birds inside their whistles. They might spot YoUDee, a mascot whose roots trace back to the Revolutionary War, or the school’s nationally ranked dance team pumping up the crowd. Of course, there’s also the school’s marching band, which at 300 members strong, cranks out stirring renditions of the UD fight song.
Inside each Sky Zone location, a wall-to-wall half-pipe made entirely of trampolines gives children and adults a venue where they can safely hop, bounce, and somersault to their hearts' content. The vast, taut, springy flooring doesn't end at the walls, but instead the trampolines continue upward to form angles perfect for crawling up, springing off, or sliding down. Visitors can meander along the bounceable terrain in the open trampoline arena, throw themselves into giant foam pits, or sharpen their competitive edges in trampoline-assisted sports such as dodgeball, volleyball, or basketball dunking. SkyRobics classes merge gravity-defying fun with fitness during instructor-led workouts that include calisthenics, core exercises, and strength-building aerobics to help guests shed calories without hurting their joints or taking a wrong turn on a treadmill.
Camp Spookynaw is haunted by darkness, and now it's up to you to restore order. Born from a detailed back story, the camp
has succumbed to evil: on its property, you'll tiptoe through 10 different buildings writhing with wicked spirits and creatures. Inside the nature center, you'll find ravenous critters clawing at their cages; in the cabins, you'll cross paths with campers casting spells on each other just for fun or because their cellphones don't get very good reception here. High-tech special effects, the Shreik of the Scarecrow hayride, and dedicated actors add extra chills to the experience, which takes about 45 minutes to complete. Away from the camp's havoc, you can seek sanctuary at an onsite refuge featuring refreshments and vendors doling out their goods.
