Escape Room: The Hotel Alexandra

Are you interested in a team building challenge?  Grab a group of friends (no more than 8), and put your puzzle solving skills to the test. It’s dry time and the Hotel Alexandra is the place to be! It’s illegal to sell alcohol, but the secret still is in the back room and there’s drinks all around – that is, until word gets out that the Hotel Inspector and a liquor raiding party of lawmen are on their way to bust the hotel, and everyone in it. You’ve got to make yourself scarce, but there’s one problem: the door’s locked. Can you escape in time? You’ve got 45 minutes!

Request our escape room by contacting Small group meeting spaces are also available for professional development sessions.

$20 per person
