Players trapped inside a dark, mysterious room uncover strange objects and hidden messages that might contain the clues to help them escape—but will they make it out in time?
The heart-pounding challenge is what draws countless players to Puzzle Break, America’s first “escape room” experience, located right here on Long Island. Escape artists seeking to test their mental might can choose from one of four different challenges to see if they have what it takes.
“‘Escape the Lost Temple’ is perfect for ages 8 and up and great for birthday parties, team-building events and even just a night out with friends or family,” says Maria Reyes, the general manager of Puzzle Break Long Island. “When you come and play, you’re going to love being transported into the world that we’ve created as your group races against the clock to locate and replace the goddess’s stolen artifact, break the curse
and ‘Escape the Lost Temple.’”
“Escape The Lost Temple,” one of the more exciting challenges, features cool special effects that transport challengers into another world. What sets it apart from the rest is that the story, the hieroglyphics and most everything that the team will uncover while trying to escape is true to historical form. It is based on Etruscan history and is historically accurate.
Besides being a fun night out, the games also serve as an excellent team-building activity for the next corporate, off-site, or private event, or for team gathering. Teams of adventurers will join forces to find hidden clues, solve puzzles, and unravel a mystery before the 60 minutes run out.
There is no age limit. Contestants can bring their 80-year-old grandmother or their 8-year-old nephew and still have a blast. There are also in-room game masters in all of the games to provide hints if asked, and to ensure that everyone is having fun and understands what’s going on.
Puzzle Break also offers three other challenges: “Escape from 20,000 Leagues,” “The Grimm Escape,” and “Escape the Midnight Carnival.” Each can include up to 10 to 12 players.
Tickets are $30 per person. Puzzle Break Long Island is located at 180 Michael Dr., Syosset. For more information, reach them at 516-307-0888 or puzzlebreakli.com.
