Wicked Escapes adventure escape room in Saugus offers thrills
August 18, 2016
It’s lights out on Cell Block 4 and tonight is the night. Your fellow inmates are on the edge of their thin mattresses, waiting to make a break for it. You have one hour.
This is the theme of the town’s first escape room, representative of a growing live action adventure phenomenon where participants work together to solve puzzles, riddles and brain teasers to escape from a room designed to keep them in.
Beverly, MA - Found guilty of the crime of having too much fun, The Castle Crew was convicted, tried, and sentenced to life in prison without parole or bail this past Monday. Luckily, we were placed in the notoriously escapable Sheepshank Prison in Saugus, MA. Thanks to Wicked Escapes, we were locked away in a series of jail cells in cell block four with only our dreams of freedom in our possession.
SAUGUS, MA — Most people want to stay out of jail, but others are willing to pay for the privilege of being locked up. Wicked Escapes opened its steel doors this month and for $30 you get a chance to escape from jail. “It’s the best time anybody could ever have in prison,” said co-owner Skip Dylen. The adventure game involves locking participants in a room and giving them 60 minutes to solve a series of puzzles that lead to their escape.
SAUGUS, MA - Sheepshank Prison is now open for business on Route 1. For an admission fee of $30, aspiring inmates – accompanied by their friends or relatives – get three clues and up to an hour to figure out how to break out of Cell Block 4 – the latest escape room entertainment business to pop up on the North Shore.
This was unlike anything I have ever experienced before! I had an amazing time with a group of five friends. The whole experience is immersive, and therefore, that much more exciting! The moment you walk into the building you are given costume options so that you may better fit into the scenario. The puzzles were challenging and deliciously clever-- There was never a dull moment during our hour at Wicked Escapes. Everyone that walks in to Wicked Escapes will walk away wanting more. More importantly, the owner and receptionist were two of the nicest people I have ever met. They were welcoming, and made the experience that much more fun!
Extremely immersive. If you like Escape the Room challenges, or places like Boda Borg, this is definitely for you. You have to think outside the box a lot, and sometimes strange facts you know can come into play. It has so much to offer, and from what i hear, more to come. This place is only going to get bigger, get in while you still can!!!
If i could rate more stars, i would.
Finding this place was an absolute treasure. The staff is fun and engaging, and have put together an amazing experience. The atmosphere is immediately immersive with impressive and really amazingly pieced together puzzles. There were areas where you had to really think outside the box, which is always a treat. A great team work experience and a wonderful way to spend an evening. Thanks for an awesome time, Wicked Escapes!
