What is there to do?

Did you know that The Great Escape Room in Pittsburgh is where you can actually spend your next family day out locked in a room together?

Well, it's not as horrible as it sounds! Actually, it's pretty amazing and you will likely go back again - and again!

The Great Escape Room Pittsburgh is where the family can experience something new and unique together. It's for those who want to try something different, and work together to complete something that most can't.

At The Great Escape Room you get to be part of a Sherlock style adventure, where traditional escape room fun meets the challenges of a scavenger hunt. Do you think you have what it takes? We do!

After your time starts within your room, and the doors are locked (don't worry kids, they're not really LOCKED), you have 60 minute to solve the puzzles, and find the clues, and use all that brain power to work out the secret which will ultimately unlock the room.

The rooms aren't designed for kids under 12 years, but one of the great things about the rooms is that you don't have to have any experience or special skills to play. You just have to want to have a great time, and love showing yourself you can really do something you might not have thought possible!

Within The Great Escape Pittsburgh, there are two different rooms to choose from, which means if you go back a second time, it will be a completely new experience!

Maybe you want to truly be a detective, magnifying glass at the ready?  All you have to do is unravel the mysteries that Sherlock Holmes has set out for you. If you complete them, you can be his official apprentice!

Perhaps you would rather save the world from a very scheming and evil Professor? You will need to find the antidote, but to do this you will have to beat him at his own game. This means solving his puzzle before the clock runs out!

It's a day with a twist in Pittsburgh, where kids and parents can walk away more confident than before as they crack the codes and make their way through the room to victory.

Do you think you can make it out on time? The clock starts....NOW!
