THE LOST HUNTINGTON ESCAPE ROOM
The LOST Escape Room, located at 300 C Eighth Street, next to The Market, is a fun, new, immersive entertainment concept. It is a real-life game designed for small groups of people. Your goal is simple: work together as a team, testing your wits and skills, to escape from a themed locked room. Each room has a storyline, and you are placed in the story. While the goal is simple, the game is challenging. Getting through the locked door will require finding clues, solving puzzles, cracking codes, and working together.
If you're looking for a fun activity for the family, a team-building exercise for your work colleagues, or a great outing for a church group, visit us at The Lost Huntington Escape Room!
