Great Escapes

International Drive is a treasure trove of fun activities nestled in the heart of Orlando’s tourist district. From towering thrill rides to amazing animal encounters, there’s a wide variety of things to do. In recent years, more unique experiences have found a home just steps from our doors. We’re excited to shine a light on some of our favorite experiences, in particular the escape rooms.

Popularized in the 2010s across Europe, Eastern Asia, and North America, escape rooms offer patrons the opportunity to engage in a bevy of fantastical scenario in which the goal is to “escape” before the clock runs out. Let’s take a look at a few of our favorite local escape rooms.

MindQuest Escape Games

Located on Universal Boulevard across the street from Rosen Shingle Creek, MindQuest houses 5 games: The Bomb, Diamond Heist, Mad Scientist, Cyber Crash, and The Haunting. Each situation based game is built for 2-8 people and ranges in difficulty. The combination of puzzles and brainteasers will help you unlock skills you might not even know you have. The experience is fully immersive, with rooms designed to fit the theme of your challenge. MindQuest is also preparing to open the doors to a brand new, fully immersive VR multiplayer game called The Arrival. This experience is made for smaller teams of 2-4 people. Save the world or save yourself. Whatever you choose, you have one hour. Every choice counts. Read more about MindQuest at
