Recently, the team from our Augusta radio stations headed to Parkwood Drive to explore Escape Augusta! Personally, I had never been to an escape room before, only heard about them, but the adventure turned out to be the most thrilling and exciting experience.

Escape Augusta stands as the first and sole escape room in the city. With a variety of rooms to choose from, we successfully navigated our way out of the Wiseguy Express. This room will soon be available to the public, but we were lucky to be the guinea pigs.

This particular room had us confined in a 1930s train car, racing against time to locate and disarm a bomb planted by mobsters to prevent a potential explosion. It was thrilling!

After that, owners, Michael and Emily told us about an upcoming room, all for kids! What a unique addition to this already amazing company. Not only can you, as an adult, enjoy these escape rooms, but now, you can bring along the kiddos to practice their escape skills as well!

I don't know about you but I don't think their are any kid-friendly escape rooms in Maine?

The room is all about helping a friend to find a missing pet. Kids will be able to use their skills and talents to help find the missing animal, all while having so much fun!

Because this room is focused around animals, Michael and Emily at Escape Augusta,  are giving 10% of the proceeds to the Kennebec Valley Humane Society. This epic room is looking to be officially opened on January 1st, 2023.
