Coming Soon: Escape Room Herndon

Escape Room/Ravenchase AdventuresHerndon is getting its own escape room.

If that concept is new to you, here’s what it involves. Escape rooms are interactive, team-building activities where groups of people are locked in a room with others and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit.

So now that you know, here is what to know. Richmond-based Ravenchase Adventures is opening its second Virginia location at Herndon’s K-Mart Shopping Center (404-406 Elden Street).

Co-owner Omer Aru says Escape Room Herndon, which hopes to open by late April, will be 4,000 square feet with several different rooms. Ravenchase’s rooms in Richmond, for example have themes such as a science lab, a pirate ship, a tomb, “The Matrix,” and more. Each room holds its own clues and adventures, Aru said.

Players have 60 minutes to escape.

“Most of the time, the idea is to escape but not to be scared,” said Aru. “Think ‘Indiana Jones’ and not ‘The Saw.’ ”

Escape Room Herndon rooms are designed for 4 to 12 players at a time. Most games cost $25, corporate packages available, Aru said.
