WESTCHASE — Whether you're looking for a fun activity to do with friends, or want to have a corporate team building event, The Room Tampa offers an interactive mystery escape room challenge.

Located in Westchase, the Room Tampa opened as family-owned and operated business in June. Ricardo Salazar, co-owner, decided to open the Room Tampa after his cousin, Loremar Alvarez had success with the Room Lisle in Chicago.

"The reception has been great since we opened," said Salazar.

The Room Tampa offers two different escape rooms, the Einstein Room and the Gallery. Working as a team, players have 60 minutes to use clues, ciphers, puzzles and logic to find an exit.

"Something in here will lead you to your escape," Salazar said. "You have to find a way out."

Players are monitored on camera, and after 15 minutes, have the option to ask for three clues. The challenge is ideal for six people, but can accommodate up to eight. Players who escape a room in less than 60 minutes are considered Keymasters.

Reservations for a room can made online or by phone, and the cost is $28.50 per person. Salazar said that accommodations for parties and special requests can be made with advance notice.

The Room Tampa is in the Lynmar Business Center at 12635 Race Track Road. It opens at 4 p.m. Monday-Friday, and at 11 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, call (813) 510-4332, or visit theroomtampaonline.com.
