The Experience

BrainXcape is a real-life escape room game for private groups of 2 to 10 players. Located in Manhattan’s Flatiron district, BrainXcape currently offers two different escape games in our uniquely designed rooms that make you feel like you’re a part of the history.

Whether you choose either Prison Break or The Haunted Hotel experience, you must sift through clues and work through puzzles as the clock ticks…

A real-life escape room mystery awaits...

Think you can escape?

Created by innovative set designers who have worked for Sleep No More, haunted houses around NYC and famous Broadway shows, the concept is simple: you are locked in a series of rooms and have one hour to escape by figuring out the clues and solving the puzzles.

Escape rooms have quickly become one of the most fun and unique activities in NYC. BrainXcape’s heart-pounding game design offers surprises and excitement for first-timers and hard-core gamers alike.

Sounds easy, right? Don’t be so sure…Many have tried, few have triumphed.

Play the starring role in your own great escape movie and walk away with the experience of a lifetime.
