I've been to 5-6 different escape the room companies to date, and Clue Chase has definitely been one of the best so far. Our group of six set out to conquer the Egyptian Tomb, and we got out with 30 seconds to spare! The set was beautiful, with the puzzles being both fun and challenging. At other companies where the production value was not as high, important contraptions would break or malfunction, but we encountered no such problems here. The clue masters also helped us along the way, which our group took full advantage of. At the end of the hour we were able to take a fun group photo with themed props, which was a nice little touch to finish off the experience.Jennifer R.
Tickets are $29 pp, comparable to other places in NYC. We had a great time and look forward to returning for the other rooms!
September, 1800. For thousands of years, Egypt was the dominant force in North Africa and the Middle East. Napoleon Bonaparte believed that he alone had discovered the source of the ancient civilization’s power and fertility, a relic, “The Artifact”. Napoleon gathered together his army and a crew of archeologists and mounted an expedition to Egypt. However, the ancient Egyptians were wise, and knew that someday another ruler would desire The Artifact for themselves. Napoleon and his archaeologists triggered the traps left in the tombs by the Egyptians, and fled. Leaving the tombs, and The Artifact, far behind...
Modern day: Clue Chase Labs has detected electromagnetic interference in the tomb of Queen Nefertiti in the year 1800, almost immediately after Napoleon and his men fled the area. These signals lead us to believe that Napoleon was correct, and that the artifact was most certainly in the possession of the ancient Egyptians - and perhaps… it still is.
