For the past several years Escape Rooms have been opening their doors and locking them behind us.
Escape Rooms provide an experience where you and up to 10 people, depending on the room, are locked inside and tasked with getting out. The only way to unlock the room is for you and your group to work together and solve the series of clues and riddles that the mastermind creators have concocted. Each room has a different theme or storyline to explain why you have been locked inside and why you only have one hour to get out.

Escape Rooms are perfect for parties or just a get together with a group of friends. It is possible for multiple groups to go in the same room if you do not have enough people in your initial group. So it can even be a great place to meet new people. These rooms also offer a good opportunity for you and your coworkers to do some fun team building.

Discussion is key. Found a key? Let everyone know. Have a thought on the riddle? Discuss. Does something look funny or remind you of something a message said? Work it out with your teammates and try to smash the record time, or simply make sure that your group photo at the end does not have you holding up a sign that exclaims to the world that you could not escape.

These rooms usually cost under $30 per person and can be booked in advance or scheduled for a certain time. Here are the top rooms in the state.

Escape RI

Located on South Main Street on the East Side of Providence, Escape RI was founded by Ethan Carlson and Escape Industries. Ethan got his Mechanical Engineering degree from Yale University and has used his knowledge to create technologically based puzzles. Rooms are based off HP Lovecraft, reclusive billionaires and their secrets, and military test bunkers among others. Escape RI keeps things fresh by retiring one room and introducing a new one every few months. So this place can never get stale. The intricate, handmade puzzles give you an experience most people can not replicate at home.

Escape RI offers a true immersion experience with a storyline, as well as electronic timers that can also show hints. “The Bunker” has been a popular attraction, allowing for up to 10 players, but has just a 14% success rate. Their newest room is “Andromeda Station” where up to six people returning from a space mission try to figure out why the space station is on lockdown.

Lock and Clue

Lock and Clue is located at the Hope Artiste Village in Pawtucket and offers multiple experiences, from backstage of a reality show to try to escape from a murderous butcher. Lock and Clue has great hosts along with separate game operators for each room making sure everyone gets the full attention of staff members. The hosts wear costumes and act in character when bringing groups into their room in order to engross players. Lock and Clue uses sound effects, music, and lighting to create unique puzzles and captivates their customers.

Lock and Clue has recently diverted from the norm of other escape rooms by making any booking private, meaning that no matter how many slots are empty they will not be filled with another group.

Lock and Clue is currently working on a large expansion, which they hope will make them New England’s largest escape room in terms of size. When completed, the expansion will result in a total of seven rooms and almost 9,000 square feet. They have also recently completed the “Zany Zoo,” an escape room designed specifically for kids age 7-11.

Businesses will be pleased to know the Lock and Clue has an attached kitchen and serving area, along with a conference room with digital projector perfect for meetings and completing teamwork exercises.

The Great Escape Room

The Great Escape room is a national chain that has made a home right in Downtown Providence at 146 Westminster Street. Many of the rooms have a Sherlock Holmes theme and include Holmes’ very own Library and Moriarty’s Gameroom. The Great Escape makes their rooms more intimate by putting a facilitator in the room in order to give clues and answer any questions participants may have. They also employ a scavenger hunt into their rooms, forcing participants to gather the clues to solve the larger puzzles. Their newest room, the President’s bunker, deviates from the usual Sherlock theme and instead has you attempt to avert a nuclear disaster.

RI Riddle Room

While not having escape in the name The Riddle Room is still an escape the room experience that offers two rooms of varying difficulty. Located at 20 Water Street in East Greenwich, The Riddle Room was founded by Rhode Island natives Kara Zanni and Byron Delmonico. Their goal for the rooms has been to not only create engaging puzzles but also to capture the audience with deep storytelling that makes players feel connected to the course of events. The storylines for the rooms are based on real-life local events and locations, while the props they use have an authentic feel that will make you feel like Atwells Ave moved to East Greenwich. Their newest room, La Cosa Nostra, is a Federal Hill mobster themed room.
