Are you and your loved one mystery fanatics? If so, visiting an Escape Room is the perfect idea for next date night. Although they are owned by different people, all Escape Rooms in Tampa Bay share the same general format. You and your significant other are trapped in a room with up to a dozen other people for 60 minutes. You are given a prompt and a set of clues and must work together to “escape,” or solve the mystery, before time is up. The room is designed to fit the prompt, making it feel realistic and more exciting to couples.
With a wet Florida summer in full swing, this is a perfect date idea for a rainy afternoon or night.
