We always try to do something fun for our holiday party (and we do our holiday party in January after the crazy season. Who needs one more event in December?) This year we took the staff to MindEscape. (We had a blast a few years back at Escape the 80's on Passyunk!)
This room escape did NOT disappoint. Because the venue has two rooms that can be booked at the same time, the staff split up and decided if they'd rather go through a "Jack the Ripper" themed room or "Escape a Thai Prison." I was in the prison group and it was a freaking blast! I won't give away any secrets / clues, but I will say that we all started handcuffed in seperate cells. It was so fun to break out! My favorite part was pacing with Minder Greg in the last few minutes because we were convinced we were going to "miss the bus."
They're adding a Alice in Wonderland themed room this Spring too! We highly recommend this venue for group events. In fact, we may go back next year and just do different rooms. It was that fun. (And the game masters were top notch too.) Thanks MindEscape!
