You have been invited to be part of an elite observation team to view the newest medical wonder created by Dr. Watson. He has devised a miracle machine that will automatically perform open heart surgery and you will be one of the first to see it in action. As you enter the pre-op room, something goes terribly wrong!
A deadly virus has been released and you are now sealed in the operating room WITHOUT Dr. Watson! Dr. Watson has prepared the room for just such an instance, but you must find the clues that he has left in the room to activate the operating machine and successfully perform the procedure.
Time is ticking…can you save the patient before he expires?
While visiting Washington, D.C., you and your group have been invited to a special private tour of the White House. The last stop on the tour is the Presidential command bunker. In the event of a national emergency, the President and his staff would retreat to this bunker.
As you make your way through this last stop on your tour, the bunker suddenly goes into automatic lockdown and you are informed of an imminent attack on the United States. Now, it is just you and your fellow tour members locked in with no hope of outside help.
It is up to you to work together in a 60 minute, high-stakes race to prevent nuclear Armageddon. Good luck – the whole world is counting on you!

As a prisoner deep under the Colosseum, you await your turn in battle. Spartacus was once imprisoned in the very cells you currently occupy, and he managed to escape. To help others follow his path to freedom, he left a series of clues and challenges showing the way but made them clever enough so the guards couldn’t follow his path. Studying the timing of the guard patrols, you realize you have a 120-minute window with which to make your escape or face the uncertainty of the arena against tested gladiators.
Get ready for a unique adventure like no other! You will work your way through multiple distinct rooms under the Colosseum, working together with your fellow prisoners – and maybe a little help from unsuspected allies – finding clues and solving puzzles in your effort to Escape the Colosseum! May the Gods of Rome have mercy on you and bless your path to escape!
Escape the Colosseum is one of the longest escape adventures in the world at up to 120 minutes. The attention to detail makes this a deeply immersive experience and you truly feel like you have been transported 2,000 years into the past. If the ancient Romans didn’t use a Master Lock or modern tool, you won’t find them in this period themed experience!
