Another local storefront is offering experiences to its clientele with the opening of Escapology in Garwood, and this one has got costumes, sets and elaborate character backstories.

Teams of up to eight people can partake in real life games, working together to find clues, solve puzzles, and pick locks that will free them from the game room.

“Had an awesome time and experience at Escapology,” recently commented ToniAnn D. an Elite Jersey Yelper. “I’ve done over 20 escape rooms by now and this place is the top of my list!”

The Garwood rooms are elaborated designed to take participants to different locales or years. Game masters (Escapology employees) help administer each scenario and bring the whole thing to life.

“The entirety of the whole experience in one word: ORGANIZED. They really take pride in that and it’s visible,” posted another Yelper.

The entire private gaming experience takes about an hour, according to the Escapology website.

“Anyone can play our games in groups of 2-6 players. We recommend that children under the ages of 7 do not play as they might not understand the games, but they are welcome to accompany you for free,” says management.

Gaming scenarios include: Cuban Crisis, Budapest Express and Arizona Shoot Out.

Escapology has amusement centers nationwide. The Garwood location is the first in the Garden State.

And how could we forget… its BYOB!
