If you’re looking for some serious amusement, Can you Escape? LI should beyour destination. The premise is simple. The way it works is that groups of people are locked in a room for an hour where, in order to get out, clues, puzzles and riddles must be deciphered.
Recently, I and a group of guys spent the night at Can You Escape? Prior to going in, as I waited for the rest of my party to arrive, I could hear people describing the experience saying things like “That was awesome” and “I had sucha great time.”
After spending an hour “trying to escape,” I found out that what I heard was true! Can you Escape? LI is a cool experience.
When everyone arrived, I and my friends were in locked in the “Apartment,” which is considered the second hardest room to escape from. In the event we got stuck, we were given three hints (which we did need).
I’m happy to report that we broke out with 6 minutes left! The room we were in was well thought out because 90% of the objects were utilized to play the game. There were even a few surprises. The staff was fun and courteous and explained everything beforehand. And the creepy music playing in the background added to the experience.
Can you Escape? LI is great for kids and adults alike. Perfect for a date or friend’s night out, or if you’re looking for some family bonding time. It’s even excellent if you’re a company that is looking for an innovative way to spend quality time building your team.
Whatever the reason, Can You Escape? LI is a perfect diversion.
So, if you’re planning to try it, I would suggest booking as early as you can because time slots do fill up quickly taken by eager Long Islanders looking to “Escape.”
