• UFO Video Game - Gainesville, Florida

      You notice something different about UFO Video the second you walk in. It resembles an old video store, with hundreds of VHS tapes lining the walls. They're not just there for decor, but figure prominently in the game. Though billed as an escape room, the UFO's Are Real game is not about escaping but about unlocking a box with a prize inside. It entails the same kinds of problem solving you'll find in escape rooms, particularly testing your ability to decipher anagrams, picture puzzles and synonyms. But a rather unique twist is that you obtain your clues by playing videos displayed in the lobby, and you must use other clues to figure out which tapes to play. A knowledge of movie trivia comes in really handy. There are also two other equally intriguing games you can play, called Brainwashed and The Illuminati Box.
