Escape rooms continue to become more popular around the country. As usual, whatever becomes trendy around the country eventually ends up in Las Vegas. Most of these activities are located off the Vegas Strip. Escape rooms continue to pop up all over town.
The location of Las Vegas escape rooms is important. Rent on the Vegas Strip is expensive and that often makes new restaurants, bars, and attractions more costly. By staying away from the Vegas Strip, the price for escape rooms is in line with what you’d expect to pay for the experience.
If you’re not familiar with escape rooms, they are essentially what the name says. The goal of most escape rooms is for players to find their way out of a closed room. The venues offer a series of puzzles and riddles using clues and hints that can be found throughout the room (or rooms) players are trying to escape. There’s often a time limit to increase the adrenaline of participants.
