The Cryptic Room is a live-action, team-based escape room game. Once you are inside of the themed room, the clock starts ticking and you have limited time to work together, find and use clues, solve the puzzles, and "break out". You must hurry though — once the clock hits zero, it is all over. There are five escape room themes:

 

 

  1. Great Aunt Myrtle Ethrington (G.A.M.E.)
    Can you find Myrtle’s Will?
  2. Into the Assassin’s Lair
    Disarm a bomb, save yourselves, and maybe the next victim.
  3. C.O.R.E. Intruders
    Retrieve a piece of technology, and avoid physical security.
  4. Cave of Lost Souls
    Get rescued from a plane crash.
  5. Paradise?
    Can the chosen one be found to honor the gods.
