About the experience

Cambridge, Massachusetts, January 23, 2015 “Nitr0,” heard the name? If you haven’t, you’re about to learn. In fact, all of America might soon find it plastered across their TV screens. Nitr0 is the world’s greatest hacker, he’s successfully completed over 300 cyber crimes, yet the FBI doesn’t have any leads to his identity. Early this morning a video was received at FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C. Nitr0 informed the Bureau of his plan to release a virus that will drain 100 million United States bank accounts of over $75 billion. You are FBI Agent Alex Vargas, a fresh face in the Cyber Crime Unit. Fueled by optimism and a need for success, you determine that taking down Nitr0 would be the best way to climb the ladder to the top. You’ve received an anonymous lead, apparently Nitr0 has been tracked to an apartment in Cambridge. It’s a long shot, but it’s the only thing you’ve got.

You arrive outside and discover what looks to be an average American college apartment. A powerful clack comes from the door, it’s been sealed shut. The television turns on and Nitr0 himself appears on the screen. He tells you that he was the one who tipped you off about the location, he’s setting you up and in one hour the FBI will trace everything back to you in this apartment. The realization is setting in, the biggest virtual heist in history is about to be pinned on you.

You know that Nitr0 always provides a kill code for every crime in case things go awry. You must find that code, kill the program and escape within the hour. So you don’t take the fall for the biggest crime in American history.

Immersion, Fun, and Challenging! I'm a big fan of escape rooms. I love puzzles and have raised my children to love them too. The more challenging the better! We have done 3 of Escapology's rooms and loved each one of them. You should always look for three things in Escape Rooms: 1> challenging, 2> Fun, 3> immersion. Escapology has all 3 of these. Fully immersive rooms ranging in difficulty and all are a lot of fun! I would recommend starting with a basic room, or intermediate, don't jump straight to the two hardest rooms. But definitely DO them! We did Nuclear Annihilation, Then The Code, Then Under Pressure. I Actually Think The Code was a little harder than Under Pressure, since we finished it with only 2 minutes to spare. I wish we had done them all in order, but we will likely go back and do the other rooms with some newbies with us!
We had an amazing experience at Escapology! My partner and I went with our two children tonight (ages 11 and 9.) They warned us going in that The Code was the hardest room, and we sadly didn't make it through. However, it was the end of the night and noone was booked behind us so Patty offered to let us have more time and complete the game. Absolutely amazing service. They were kind, friendly, and went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful night. The rooms really make you use your brain, team work is key, I absolutely love that you end up in more than one room because hidden doors end up unlocking when you solve the codes. We have nothing but wonderful things to say! Go! You won't be disappointed!
Love the cool decor and theme. My team The Captains of America escaped TH3 COD3 with a record time on Independence Day. The puzzles were fun and there were a lot of cool gadgets involved in solving them. Staff was super nice and enthusiastic in celebrating our success.
