Test your wit and your communication skills at the Gulf Coast Escape Room, a cool new attraction in Gulf Shores to challenge even those the most confident gamers.

Real-life escape rooms are taking the country by storm. They are a type of physical adventure game in which people are “locked” in a room with other participants and must use elements available within the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues and escape the room.

To escape, visitors will have to work together to find clues and solve puzzles. But, be careful not to waste time working on a puzzle someone else has already solved!

For example, if you have found a box that will not open until you put in a five-letter code, and your friend has found a secret passage in a book with a five-letter word circled, unless you communicate you will not be able to put together those two pieces.

Each of the attraction’s rooms are themed in order to immerse you into experiences that will transport you and your family or friends into an adventure.

There’s a doll room, a zombie autopsy room and even a room where you have to figure out how to stop the oil spill. Definitely out-of-the-ordinary and yet perfect for an off-beach activity!

The Gulf Coast Escape Room is located at 701 Gulf Shores Parkway.
