Escape Room Cary

We all want to occasionally step out of the routines of our lives and try something fun, interesting, and stimulating. Escape rooms are a way of fulfilling our need to exercise our brains, bond with friends or coworkers, and have a good time doing something that most of us will never get a chance to try in real life. Amaze Room Escapes offers three exciting escape scenarios that you can choose from. You and your group can test your skills at attempting a successful jewel heist, or making a break from your execution while being held in a POW prison, or even escape from the confusion and chaos in the world of a famous musician! When planning your visit to an escape room, it is always helpful to know the variety and themes of the puzzles being offered.

History of Escape Rooms

The concept of escape rooms came from a video game. It was an early computer game called “Behind Closed Doors” in which players found themselves trapped in a bathroom. Eventually, the mysteries of games offered players the opportunity to solve puzzles by answering questions to unlock clues. Then, in 2004, the video game Crimson Room came along. The game required players to escape from a room by asking questions of various characters and solving puzzles. The first physical escape room emerged in 2007 in Japan. It was the brainchild of a company called SCRAP, and the trend spread through Asia and then Europe. Today it is a fast-growing phenomenon in the United States. It makes for a fun and reasonably priced outing that can make life long memories for all! Our rooms at Amaze Room Escapes are unique and full of intrigue coupled by a healthy dose of stimulating fun too!

Escape from the Black and White is based on your life as Simon. You are a famous musician whose world has turned into chaos and confusion.

The Benefits of an Escape Room

Nothing utilizes teamwork like a group of coworkers trying to solve a thought-provoking puzzle.

If you own or manage a business, our rooms can be a great way of getting to know your team’s strengths and weaknesses. Is there one person to whom the others tend to gravitate as a leader? If so, that person might be a good supervisor. Is there another person who is good at solving riddles and puzzles? They might be right for an analytical type of job. Escape rooms let you observe how people solve problems and interact with one another. It is always a terrific way to see your coworkers in an environment outside of the office. Finally, team building events boost morale, productivity, and reduces turnover. Let the games begin — book your escape adventure today!

We love being a part of special celebrations such as birthdays, engagements, bachelorette/bachelor parties, friends night out, and any excuse for getting together with family and friends. Families can bond and get to know each other better as they work side by side to solve a problem. Friends put their puzzle-solving skills to work and take their teamwork to new heights! Whatever event you are celebrating, we provide an exceptional experience that will be sure to be remembered for years to come. Looking for that something different? You found it at Amaze Room Escapes! We are a family-owned business and are delighted to be a part of your special event.
