      The dilemma about escape rooms is that you want to get out of them within the one hour time limit and compete for best time, but on the other hand, if you get out too soon the adventure is over. Urban Enigmas offers a solution, providing more challenges than just escape. In one of its rooms, you are not only trying to get out but also scoring points by playing games using realistic larger-than-life versions of classic games like Scrabble and Operation. In another room, you are cast as prisoners arrested for a crime you did not commit and your twofold quest is to break out of the jail and use your detective skills to identify the real criminal and thereby prove your innocence. As an additional twist, you have the option of beginning this adventure by being handcuffed, and then your added challenges are locating the key to the cuffs and, in the meantime, performing other problem-solving tasks with impaired dexterity. Great fun for all ages.

      If you go:
      Open every day except Sunday. Finding Urban Enigmas can be a bit tricky. It's located in the old shopping center across the street from Starbucks. Note also that it will be moved to a new location at some point.
