Part of what makes Universal’s Great Movie Escape so unique is the wide variety of challenges, which you’ll need to cooperate with your team to complete. Each room is also specifically designed to be enjoyable for novices and experienced escapees alike. To that end, activities in both adventures are:

  • Story-driven, as you must complete tasks as part of an immersive, original story;
  • Customizable depending on party size, ensuring everyone gets to participate; and,
  • Adjustable based on skill level and complexity, so there’s always a challenge to solve.

After entering the art deco, theater-inspired venue, you’ll be swept into your choice of the following experiences. Be sure to think fast and work together with your group to achieve success!
