Escape rooms are a fun activity where you solve riddles, puzzles and collect clues with a group of friends. But did you know you can play one from the comfort of your own home? The List rounded up three cool virtual escape rooms to keep your brain busy and entertained.
1. Sherlock’s Escape Rooms
First up, the escape rooms at Sherlock’s in Florence and Cold Spring, Kentucky now offer an online option. “We thought to keep a heartbeat on the business was to come up with a fun way to entertain people while they are at home,” says Jennifer Maki, the owner of Sherlock’s Escape Rooms. For $80, a group of up to eight can join a Zoom call and work with a live actor. Cara Harrison, who lives in Cincinnati, tried the virtual option for herself with a few friends. “I’ve done Zoom trivia nights and other Zoom party-themed type things,” she explains. “This was definitely something fun and different.” You can experience their room on Zoom by visiting SherlocksEscapeRooms.com.
