Can you figure out how they did it and follow their trail to freedom? You and your fellow block-mates have 60 minutes of unsupervised time during lights-out to find a way to escape your cells and make a break for blue skies!!

Cell Block 4 - $ CALL FOR PRICING
Our most popular game in our Boston location, top tier reviews from both veterans and new players. Designed for viable gameplay for mixed booking groups of up to 12 players. Exaggerated theme-park style prison break with narrative nods to Shawshank Redemption, Cool Hand Luke, Escape From Alcatraz, etc, including narrative clues in Morgan Freeman impersonator voice.
Groups are split into 4 realistic prison cells (sliding doors, real prison toilets, prison bunk beds, faux cinderblock walls, etc.) on either side of a shared hallway, and must overcome security lockdown to get out of their individual cells, then solve puzzles and clues left by a hilariously motley crew of former inmates to escape the block itself.
Players don orange jumpsuits to play, making for hugely boosted social media and marketing value in their pre/post game photos
Discovery heavy room- searching cells for hidden items and communicating with players in other cells appeals to all ages and experience levels
Mix of puzzle types- pattern recognition, verbal, logic, procedural
Several checkpoint "wow" reveals including automated cell door unlock puzzle that requires all 4 cells working together, automated hidden area reveal behind actual prison toilet/sink fixture, etc.
Mix of linear and non linear puzzle flow to correctly engage larger groups
2-cell reset option for groups of only 2 or 3 players
Distressed old-school prison environment with ambient soundscape, escalating tension musical score, flickering dim lighting for "lights out" setting etc
Narrative world building through clues, humorous content and "easter egg" content like clever signage and scenic elements
No red herrings
