Looking for an exciting date night that will keep you on your toes and get your brain working overtime? Consider checking out escape rooms in Orlando. Each has its own theme, aesthetic and level of challenge.

Escape games and escape rooms are interactive, adventure scenarios where multiple players are locked in a room and have to work together to find clues, solve puzzles and crack the code to escape within a set amount of time. Many involve a quick video introduction. Each game has a unique room and story, which range from helping to steal a painting to finding buried treasure. Not only does this work as a date idea, but it doubles as a team building experience. And if your goal is to build a long term relationship, working as a team is important.

You'll need to bring your best problem-solving and sleuthing skills but it will be a blast and a date night you won't soon forget.

One of our picks for Best Escape Room in Orlando

One of our picks for the best escape room experience in Orlando is not actually an escape room. Unlike traditional escape rooms that use typical locks or keys, you're working together towards a goal. Instead of escaping a room, you’re on an adventure to achieve a greater goal, whether it’s hatching a Loch Ness creature, foiling an evil genius, stealing an ancient relic alongside a puppet sidekick, or launching a UFO back into outer space. The dedicated designers and scenic artists made The Bureau Orlando a really cool place.

This escape room game is one of the best in Orlando. Gold Rush challenges teams to find a prospector’s secret gold stash from back in the 1850s before the mob can find it. The teams use hidden objects and solve puzzles in a confined area before time runs out. The game was difficult and featured many twists and challenging tasks. The Escape Game Orlando has plenty of other escape room experiences. Each one is highly themed, detailed, and full of immersive sets.

    2 of my favorites are Dare 2 Escape near Celebration, and The Escape Effect (which offers longer experiences) on I-Drive near Sea World. Both are great!
