Welcome to Tucson

Although colorful historic buildings, great bars and restaurants and quirky shops are half of Tucson's charm, the other half lies outside town. Whether it's the beautiful Saguaro National Park, the rugged Santa Catalina Mountains or the world-class Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, you won't regret exploring beyond the city limits.

The room holds many secrets, some simple and superficial, and others secured and hidden away. Your thinking and problem solving skills will be put to the test, as you calculate your escape. Sometimes a key is not necessary to open a lock.You won't be alone. Two minds are better than one, and no experience brings people closer together than escaping capture. The room is unsolvable by one person, so you and your friends, family, partners and co-workers will have to work as a team to escape. Hysteria and frustration guaranteed.You will feel the atmosphere. The room is built to create an authentic experience with a fun atmosphere, strict attention to detail, unmatched realism and a captivating storyline.
