Are you looking for a fun activity to tease your brain? Going to an escape room is the perfect thing to do.

Now you may ask, “What is an escape room?” An escape room is an adventure game in which players are locked in a room and must use logic to complete various puzzles in order to get out. The types of puzzles may include numeric puzzles, picture puzzles, and word puzzles. Hints are given during your mission, and you have about an hour to crack the code. Each mission in an escape room has a theme, such as Once Upon a Time, The Interrogation Room, The Apartment and many more.

These themed escape rooms are found right here in Mineola at Can You Escape? The Room LI. Going to an escape room is a great team-building activity because all players work together as one to escape. This activity is recommended for people who are 8 and older. So, are you ready to put your brain to the test and try to escape the room?
