Labor Day Week
Imagine yourself stuck in a room with only an hour to escape from its complicated confines. Use your mind to try and figure out a way of the room, working together with friends and family to get out. Don’t worry! You’re not stuck in the room for forever. If you can’t get out, you will be automatically released after an hour in its walls. This amazing experience is called the Final Door, hosted in Columbia, SC. There are multiple escape rooms to choose from including The Sacrifice, Blackout, and The Vampyr. Coming soon is Zombie vs Army, and Treasure Hunt. Each of these rooms convey a unique story that helps add suspense and thrill to the game, making you feel like you are actually part of the story. Because of the intensity of the game, it is suggested that players be at least thirteen to sixteen years of age. Prices range from twenty-five to thirty-three dollars per person depending on the type of game and the day it is played. See https://www.thefinaldoor.com for more information.
