What is a Room Escape? It’s a popular, new activity that involves being locked in a room with other participants. You must work as a team to uncover the answers to various puzzles and clues that will be presented to you. As you uncover the answers to the Pirate Challenge you will get keys that allow you to escape into the next room. Once you unlock all the answers you will be allowed to Escape the Room completely and beat the Catalina Pirate!
Experience the NEW ESCAPE ROOM CRAZE on Catalina! Our escape room is a live-action adventure where groups of 2-8 must work together by racing to solve clues, find secrets, and crack codes. You have one goal: work together and escape the room in under 1 hour. Play the pirate challenge with your family, friends or co-workers and see if you have what it takes to make an escape.
Enjoy our temperature-controlled rooms while your team solves riddles, opens secret passages, and tries to beat the Captain in this hour-long group adventure. Will you triumph and join the crew or lose and become shark bait?
Our team is happy to offer you clues (if you choose to take them) and we will also gladly charge your electronic devices while you play.
