The Escape Game – Prison Break

Prison break escape room gamePrison break escape room game

Could you break out of a prison cell? That is your objective in the Prison Break room at The Escape Game, a new escape room experience in New York City. Located minutes from Grand Central Terminal inside the historic Lefcourt Colonial Building, The Escape Game is a subterranean amusement park of five different escape rooms: The Heist, Gold Rush, Prison Break,  Special Ops: Mystery Market and the Playground. Each custom designed room immerses you in a unique world full of puzzles, tricks, and surprises. Teams of 2-12 have one hour to complete a series of task that will unlock the room.

Insiders are invited to choose your own adventure by booking a spot in either the Gold Rush or Prison Break room. Here is the story for Prison Break:

"The year is 1955. You’ve been wrongfully accused of a crime, and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Your new “home” is a cell that once belonged to an inmate who disappeared without a trace…or did he? Some claim he escaped. Others swear he was murdered by the infamously cruel warden. But no one actually knows…can you escape before you suffer the same fate?"

Learn more about the game and see a 3D room view here! If you are interested in booking the Gold Rush room, learn more herehere! You must choose a room in advance as the games will start at different times.

Non-members can book an experience at The Escape Game here, a $42 value.
