Escape Room

Escape RoomForm stronger bonds and stronger brains with this group activity! Escape rooms are fun with any group. They require you to work as a team to solve puzzles and escape the locked room. Tactical Escape 101, located in Oakwood Mall, offers 4 different rooms to choose from, all with a different theme. I went to Tactical Escape 101 with a student organization and had an absolute blast. You can make reservations for your next outing on their website, or give them a call!
