Journey to the Edge of Escape

August 06, 2018

If you’re from the Chicagoland area, odds are you’ve almost certainly heard of the Dungeon of Doom, located right here in Zion and continually rated as the number 1 haunted house by reviewers across DoD’s more than two decades of scares. But wait, you’re thinking, it’s not even fall yet. What does a haunted house have to do with my summer vacation? Well, you’re in luck, because the acclaimed creators of Dungeon of Doom have put their minds together to devise a year-round thrill. Edge of Escape takes the escape room experience to a new level with Time Machine. You and your team will be tasked with interpreting clues and solving puzzles as you race back and forth through time on a quest to save humanity from destruction. Time Machine has received rave reviews since its appearance on the escape room scene. Plus, it’s appropriate not just for adults, but also for teens and tweens, so you can bring the whole family down for a day or evening of adrenaline-pumping fun.
