Just a hint at what to expect inside Rabbit Hole Escape Games.

Leave your smartphones behind and take a trip down the rabbit hole at the all new interactive live puzzle experience, Rabbit Hole Escape Games.

Teams of up to seven will enter the Bermuda Triangle room and use their skills to solve multiple puzzles.

They will then have an hour to escape.

"We're fans ourselves and got addicted," said Amy Walsh, co-owner of the family-owned business.

Walsh solved her first live puzzles at an escape room in Europe and is excited to bring it to Seminole Heights.

"Once you try one, everyone wants to try everyone else's escape rooms," Walsh said. "What makes ours unique is that we have more of a progressive linear approach compared to a scavenger hunt approach."

There are no scary elements, just teams working together.

Like other escape rooms, participants may be paired with family and friends, and/or strangers. Private rooms are available for booking.

Though Rabbit Hole Escape Games featured the one room for their grand opening Thursday, in three months they plan to add another.

That doesn't mean guests will tire of the Bermuda Triangle.

"There's so much going on, sometimes you only get to see pieces of it," Walsh said. "They can come back and try to solve different puzzles. Some people who have already tried the room say, 'there's been so much, I wouldn't even remember how to solve it.' "

Prices are $29 per person, or $24 for students.

It's located at 5120 N Florida Ave. Visit, for more information and to schedule a reservation.
