Escape rooms themed around “Back to the Future” and “Jurassic World” will open to guests at Universal Orlando Resort’s CityWalk on Dec. 9.
Collectively dubbed Universal’s Great Movie Escape, the new experience will “go beyond the typical escape room – blending state-of-the-art challenges, detailed sets and original storylines to immerse guests in story-driven adventures that allow them to escape into the movies like never before,” according to a Universal press release.
Universal says the escape solutions may vary with each visit and will change based on party size and skill level.
Here’s how Universal describes the two rooms:
- Jurassic World: Escape: “Guests are new geneticists at a secret lab on Isla Nublar, where they are undergoing training that includes the completion of various day-to-day tasks that range from feeding ferocious dinosaurs to splicing dinosaur DNA to create new genetic codes…until they learn an apex predator has broken free and now they must work together to avoid becoming its prey.”
- Back to the Future: OUTATIME: “Guests are transported to a museum in 1993, where they learn Back to the Future’s antagonist, Biff, is up to his antics and has stolen Doc Brown’s newest time travel device to sabotage the space-time continuum. Guests must work together to uncover Doc Brown’s clues as they travel through time to track down Biff and save the past and future before they run ‘outatime.’”
The escape rooms are taking over space previously occupied by the Groove nightclub in CityWalk’s upper level.
Individual tickets for Universal’s Great Movie Escape start at $50 per person. At that price point, there is a maximum of six guests and your experience may include multiple parties. If you want to guarantee a stranger-free experience with only friends or family, you can book a group rate starting at $300 that includes up to eight guests per reservation. Prices will vary based on the date and time of your visit.
