Puzzlescape is an escape/puzzle room experience in Hudson, MA (right off of 495 near 290) on the 3rd floor of a beautiful old building downtown. (Take the stairs up if you can!)
The name of the game is “Escape Room” — a literal description for a complicated endeavor. A team of people signs up to be locked in a room, and must find clues and solve puzzles to complete a given mission and find the key to escape.
The timer is set, the rules are shown via a brief video presentation, the door is shut, then it’s go time.
The room setting will vary on the experience you choose. it may appear at first glance like a well-decorated office; or an apartment; or a Victorian House. Then, the group tears it apart, looking for clues.
You may find locked boxes — where to find the combination? Books — will one contain a hidden message? Broken clocks — should you pay attention to the time it’s stopped on? Flashlights, teapots, magnets, portraits, lamps, vases, sticky notes, cogs, board games, playing cards. And in them or on them or under them are clues and riddles and puzzles whose answers lead to a letter that means a number that points to another locked box.
The thrills materialize as you solve each puzzle. Open a box - find a key or a clue. It takes true teamwork, and lots of trial and error. If you get stuck, teams can ask for up to 3 clues throughout the game. The added rush of the timer ticking really makes for an exhilarating hour of entertainment.
It's very easy to see why the escape room trend is so popular. It couples social connections and physical interactions with intellectual stimulation; all wrapped up in a bit of a thrill.
A team photo is taken at the end of the game to remember your most excellent adventure.
This activity would be great for a group of friends, family outings, corporate or team-building events, a teen birthday party, or a fun date.
It is $30 per person in a room.
