Amazing Escape Room is a live-action game that tests your team-building skills with a challenging twist. There are a handful of locations around the state: Cherry Hill, Freehold, Princeton, Montclair, Paramus, Greenbrook and Red Bank. Before starting, the room has a set time limit of 60 minutes in order to make it more challenging. In addition, there are different “level” rooms based on skill. For example, the hardest rooms have an under 10 percent success rate while the easier rooms have a 20 percent success rate.
A standard room holds up to 10 people, though smaller rooms (six people) and larger rooms (12 people) are available as well. “We host varying amounts of game players, especially group organizations, that come out and give it a try,” says owner Howard Klotzkin.
Upon entering the Escape Room, your group is given a series of puzzles, riddles and tricks to solve. In order to complete the mission and escape the room, you need to finish the different tasks. If you solve the room before time’s up, you receive a team photo and bragging rights.
If groups can’t crack the code, a game master (who is monitoring progress and helping if needed) will enter and demonstrate what is left to complete and what you could have done to figure it out.
