Escape Virtuality officially opened its doors on June 24th.

Whether you consider yourself a weathered veteran, or haven’t yet gotten to experience VR, Escape Virtuality provides an unforgettable experience for everyone. Finding yourself completely immersed in these various realities is truly quite the experience.

Featured Escape Rooms:

Become a Goblin for the Day: The Goblin king has you and your friends imprisoned and you must work together to escape his wrath! You’ll encounter fellow goblins and heroes of the realm in your quest to rise up against the king.

Stop a Derailed Subway Train: You have boarded a subway train and find yourself divided between two cars and the train is running out of control. You, along with your friends, now have less than 60 minutes to team up and figure out how to stop the runaway train before it reaches the end of the line and crashes.

Save New York from a Nuclear Meltdown: The city is in critical danger and you need to stop a nuclear reactor from entering a meltdown. The quick escape room is located near the entrance and behind glass walls so people from the street or from inside will be able to see you play.
