Escape the Room

107 Suffolk Street
New York, NY 10002

I long for the days of my youth (in the 80's!) when I would go to a friend's house and play Dungeons and Dragons. I also loved taking a trip to the local arcade with my allowance. Now my children disappear into their phones playing games that require no imagination, little thinking, and certainly aren't social.

Escape the Room, The Rec Room, provides me a connection to my gaming past and actually makes you use your brain. First, it is a group activity that requires team work, problem solving, and speed. Second, this particular game was set in the 1980's which was perfectly appropriate for me! I dare any of my fellow Finders to Escape this Room, my peeps weren't remotely close. There are Escape the Room(s) in every major city and it is a blast. I resisted this activity initially but am hooked on this as a group activity for any and all ages. I would recommend filling the minimum number required to have the room to yourself so you don't need to problem solve with strangers. Good luck!
