An escape room is like a real-life video game for an individual or a group and requires solving one or several problems in order to progress to a level or else to escape a locked door and receive a prize. Since the room is a setup and requires an operator and up to several hours to complete the challenge, escape room prices can be upwards of hundreds of dollars. It is not usually that bad, especially if a whole group pitches in, but live entertainment always commands a premium.
Your choices are diverse, especially if there is more than one site in town. If that is the case, then it can be difficult keeping track of what is available and the exact price for each experience. The size of the room and the setup contribute to the cost. Less elaborate escape rooms might cost less than $50.
