Castle Rock’s Epic Escape Game tests players’ problem-solving skills
Just past 7 p.m. on a recent Friday evening in Castle Rock, a group of six people finds themselves locked in a room.
With the click of the door, the three couples fan through the room, opening drawers, looking under tables and piling any object they can grab on a table. They’re surrounded by swords, shields, weathered wood furniture and books written in medieval script.
They need a clue, any hint at how to get out.
Then on a monitor with a counting-down clock, one pops on screen. The group unanimously pauses from scavenging the chamber and turns to reads the sentence.
With that, they’re on their way to escaping.
