    What to Expect
    Located in the Mall of America, please check in 15-minutes prior to your game start time. Our Special Ops Escape Room is an exciting, immersive game that puts the world on your shoulders. As the closest team of agents in the area, your group has been asked to investigate the Ansar market. The market is closed for the evening and is not known to be a criminal hotspot. However, your “routine check” ends up taking a quick turn and suddenly, the fate of the world rests on your shoulders. With no time to send backup, can you rise to the occasion and save the day?

    Here’s how it works: You and your team are locked in a room and have one hour to complete a mission and escape. Escaping will require teamwork, quick thinking, determination and a sense of urgency. From the moment you step into your game, you'll be totally immersed in our world.

    Each game is designed for 60-minutes of intense fun! Plan to spend 15-minutes prior to each game preparing for your mission, and 15-minutes after each game to debrief and take photos.  Perfect for everyone from families to thrill seekers to corporate groups, our intensely energetic games and enthusiastic customer service will turn your hour of gameplay into a lifelong memory.

    Parking is available at The Mall of America. It is recommended that you park in the East Ramp parking. (Mall of America, 300 East Broadway, Bloomington, MN 55425)

    Went with some friends I hadn't seen in a long time. Lots of fun puzzles to solve and a great way to enjoy time with friends. We escaped with 2 minutes left!
