The Fun, New Group Activity Capturing the County

So, you think you and your friends can plan a heist like the Ocean’s Eleven crew? What about organizing a breakout, a la The Shawshank Redemption? Now, thanks to Escape Scarsdale, you and your friends can put your slippery skills  of  subterfuge and skullduggery  to the test.

Escape rooms are a new type of interactive, group-oriented challenge that are popping up across the nation, and Escape Scarsdale — held at the Center @ 862 in Scarsdale — is the first of its kind in Westchester. It offers two 60-minute challenges of varying difficulty. One challenge, Deadline, tasks your party with stealing important documents that could bring down an evil corporation. In Gamers Challenge, a crazy video-game addict has locked your team in a room, and the only way out is to solve his ridiculous video-game-themed puzzles. 

“People love the adrenaline rush that comes with entering a themed room with a limited amount of time to find everything you need to be successful,” says Program Director Brittney Coleman of The Center @ 862. “It’s an unusual way to spend time, and I think that’s why people enjoy escape rooms so much. It’s a fun alternative to movies or bowling.”
