Elm City Escape, New Haven’s newest escape room, offers a fun and creative way to test your creativity and problem-solving skills. Their current room is called “The Initiative,” which involves escaping from an office setting that holds some dark secrets.

Escape rooms have become wildly popular, with locations all around the world and even on campus. Typically, a group of people are “locked” in a room, and through puzzles, games and observations they gather information to be able to “escape.” They are usually timed, giving participants around 60 minutes to complete it.
