Located on State Road 16, Escape U offers guests exciting and memorable experiences in their three escape rooms. Just a short drive from St. Augustine's historic district at 525 S.R. 16 (Unit 104), Escape U is a fun activity for families and groups.
Guests must keep their wits about them using strategy and clues to beat the clock and escape. Groups will need to use investigative skills to find hidden clues such as a lock that fits the special key, or the container that works with the password, or the code phrase that gets an informant to tell a secret. Participants work together as a team to complete the challenge in under one hour.
Escape U presents 3 games, from a revolving list with locations ranging from a 17th century fort, to an old jail, and asylum, and more. Every game is suitable for all ages and every group has a private experience. Every game meets ADA guidelines and games are wheelchair accessible.
The current three challenges at Escape U are Save the Fleet, The Sneaky Snake Lounge, and Old Jail. Each room combines story-telling, technology, and puzzle design to immerse guests in challenges.
In this Escape Room, participants become tourists "visiting" the Old Jail. Upon discovering a document that describes how a prisoner had been framed, in an instant, modern-day tourists get transported back to St. Augustine in the 1920s — locked in the jail as framed prisoners. Will these tourists solve the puzzles and return back to St. Augustine in the current century? To do so, they must escape the jail and retrieve the magic file from the sheriff's office.
This adventure is suitable for 2 to 8 players, has a difficulty of 9 out of 10, and a scare level of 0 out of 10. It takes an hour.
The Sneaky Snake Lounge
Visitors can travel back to the 1920's in this Escape Room and attend the most popular speakeasy in town, but this group isn't out for the fun. Players are actually a rival gang, owners of a speakeasy that lost business when the sneaky snakes came to town and they want to put the Sneaky Snake Lounge out of business for good. Will their informant be truthful? Will they succeed in sending the sneaky snakes to the city line?
This adventure is for 2 to 8 players, has a difficulty of 7 out of 10, and a scare level of 0 out of 100.
