Posted: 01/03/22

Ready, set, escape!

Big Bear features two escape room experiences each with multiple games and unique storylines. Take your imagination - and your friends - on an adventure as you solve your way to freedom together.

What Is An Escape Room?

Escape rooms have gained major popularity over the last decade and are a fun group activity that will test your teamwork and problem-solving skills. The goal isn't only to escape, but to do so within the allotted timeframe, usually an hour or so.

Just what is an escape room? You can think of them as a story come to life, and you're the main character. Your goal is get out of the room by working together with your team to find clues, determine their meaning, and solve your way through a unique mystery.

Though the name 'escape room' may sound daunting, don't worry, these games won't put you in any dangerous situations, it's just a big puzzle room. If you don't solve your way out in time, the game master will just let you out......maybe ;)
