CONWAY — We know that times have changed. We are all looking for safe and fun activities to do with our families and COVID “pod.” Here in New Hampshire, escape rooms offer up that exciting alternative to another online movie; that finally-get-out-of-house-to-somewhere-other-than-the-grocery-store option; that stimulating environment to challenge your mind with brain teasers and laughs.

An escape room is an immersive, themed room where teams of two or more players work together to search for clues, solve riddles and puzzles and open locks ... all to achieve the goal of ‘escaping the room’ within 60 minutes.

Did you know that there are escape rooms all across the Granite State? Each New Hampshire escape room is a small business, individually owned and operated.

We live and play in the communities we serve, so the desire to keep our guests safe and healthy continues to be a personal goal. While cleanliness has always been a priority, New Hampshire escape rooms have taken the extra steps necessary to not only meet recommendations and mandates, but to surpass our guests’ expectations of providing the best experience possible.

Hand sanitizer, mask requirements, social distancing, between-game disinfecting, private rooms and online ordering are just a few of the safety precautions adopted by all New Hampshire escape rooms.

Some New Hampshire escape rooms go beyond requirements and even have air filtration systems, capacity reduction and state-of-the-art sanitization.

When planning your winter staycation, check out a local escape room for the best hour of your week.
