594 Pacific St Brooklyn, NY 11217 ()
This was one of the absolute coolest experiences of my life. I had heard of escape rooms and always been curious, but didn't really think much of it. But my friend and I decided to try something new during my most recent trip to NYC.Sam
We were placed in the "haunted room" and left to figure out the clues to open doors. (and walls, and fireplaces, and closets) The vibe was amazing. I felt like I was acting in a horror movie, or just plain in a haunted room. Multiple times we found ourselves jumping and screaming at noises or movements. And always laughing right after :)
It was the beginner room but it was HARD. We almost didn't make it but luckily we did! I'm sure it would have gone faster with more people but it was great working together just the two of us. We got so excited when we figured things out. The whole thing was just a really amazing thrill - like the best haunted house I could ever imagine.
And it's affordable! A really great idea if you're looking to do something fun with friends that doesn't involve a bar.
