Can You Escape in 60 Minutes?

Updated: Apr 12, 2020

Being locked in a room for an hour with a bunch of puzzles in a fake prison cell is actually more exciting than it sounds. For exactly 59:06 minutes, I was breaking out of a prison cell with flashing lights, pictures of celebrity head shots, and a bunch of jumbled up numbers and letters. Room Escape Miami by Fox in a Box is a challenging, yet worth-it unique experience.

The place itself is small once you enter, but it’s got a world hidden away behind its doors.

Can you beat the success rate?

The Escape Room experience is a live game where players are locked in a room and the only way out are through clues. Pick from one of the six rooms: Bank Robbery, Abandoned Zombie Lab, Prison Break, Zodiac Serial Killer, and a Nuclear Bunker Room.

The Zodiac room seems too creepy for my taste, zombies aren’t my cup of tea. My group and I went with the Prison Break and spoiler alert we made it with a minute left.

If the challenges aren’t enough to admire about Fox in a Box, the least you can do is appreciate the attention to detail. For example, the Prison Break room is actually a decommissioned 1960’s jail cell from Iowa – talk about a real-life experience. The Zombie Room has real surgical and medical equipment from a 1960’s hospital and morgue. All of the rooms have noises and sounds to make you feel like you’re not in Miami anymore…

Here are a few more reasons why you should go:

  • It’s not scary at all! The music might be a little loud but there is nothing popping out at you or intentionally scaring you.

  • The 60 minutes’ fly by and not one second of it is boring.

  • Even if you have to put away your phone before you begin, you’ll still get an Insta-worthy boomerang at the end.

  • A staffer is monitoring you the whole time and will give you hints to nudge you in the right direction.
