Imagine taking one full hour, putting down your phone, and being totally immersed in a real life game of ‘Clue.’
Crazy, right? No phone for an hour!
Escape2Win is a new Escape Room in Virginia Beach where, according to their website, you “have 60 minutes to escape a ‘locked’ room by finding clues, solving puzzles, unlocking secret doors, and using elements found in the themed room to effect your escape.”
I’m not gonna lie, when I first read this, I had a rush of anxiety and flashes of Jumanji playing in my mind. I volunteered none the less and assembled my dream team.
The 7 of us — there were 8 but the HRBT ruined the fun for our most prepared teammate, Amber — spanning in age from 13 to 42. We entered the room with varied expectations and high levels of excitement.
I can’t tell you the details of the room (DUH!) but here’s what I can tell you. It was:
- Appropriate for everyone in our wide age range.
- Refreshing to do something totally different than our normal food/drink-centric socializing.
- The perfect combo of serious and hysterical (this might have to do with my team– they’re all totally down to go back if you want to bring them too!)

Not to brag but, we escaped in 39 minutes and can’t wait to head back to Escape2Win when they open their new rooms in the coming weeks. (Spoiler alert: One of them is a “date night” escape room… so, call me!)
“I was having so much fun, I kind of didn’t want to escape,” said Adam Paine. We bet you’ll feel the same.
