Home of escape room enthusiasts and the largest database of massive escape game discounts
After our first visit in Canada, we have decided to explore Washington, D.C. a bit. We are happy to say that even the capital of the US is aboundant of escape rooms.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Capitol Hill, White House and the great museum quarter. These are the attractions that everybody can read about and perhaps everybody have been. As a small child you've been here - the number of visiting school groups is the highest in the States - to stare the President residance and was amazed by the size of the Abe Lincoln statue. As an adult you probably have mixed feeling towards the people runnig the country from the capital but the city itself has great attractions.
The new form of entertainment are the escape rooms popping out the ground nowadays. You'll be locked in a room with some of your friends and you have to find a way out. Solving puzzles thinking/working together is great fun and you could easily spend 90 minutes meanwhile the other part of your group visits the monuments you already saw at least 3 times. Here you can find these brand new and exciting places:
