The Wynwood escape room (with five other locations around the country) offers three themed rooms for pretty affordable prices.

Look for it across from the Zebra-striped building in Wynwood.

Code to Escape

This Hallandale escape room certainly doesn’t skimp on creativity. Its themes are elaborate and occasionally bizarre. However, we can’t say we’re not curious to try the Hangover theme, where you must find a lost plane ticket after a blackout night of drinking. Good luck.
