Mad Scientist.jpg

"Cebrius-Maximus", our neighbor had exclaimed at the block party last night, "is the breakthrough of the century!" He claimed it had increased Chimpanzee brain function by at least 50%, effectively doubling I.Q. Unfortunately, the prolonged use of the drug caused insanity in the test chimps, but he claims the procedure is now safe and he has found a way to make the effect permanent with a simple 60-minute treatment. He's looking for test subjects. What do you think? I'd like to be smarter, how about you?

(Under Construction)

Harry Houdini, the legendary Escape Artist, built intricate puzzles into the Trophy Den of his Harlem Townhouse. In 1926 the Society of American Magicians converted the townhouse into the Houdini Home Museum. The puzzle room is visited by magicians the world over, all hoping to outsmart Houdini and learn some of the tricks he took to his grave... Or did he?  Rumor has it Houdini hid his most closely guarded secrets in his Trophy Den and only those willing to face the peril of death will be worthy...

What are Escape Rooms? 

Escape Rooms are part game, part theater, part team-building exercise... and all fun. Picture you and your friends trapped in a Room with disaster (of some sort) just minutes away. You must find clues, solve puzzles, and unlock mysteries that will allow you to escape the room and avoid the impending calamity! The joy of victory or the agony of defeat will be yours to talk and laugh about for days.
