Top 5 Escape Rooms in the Myrtle Beach Area

We all take vacations to escape the everyday routine. And one way to ensure that goal is accomplished is by making a literal escape during your getaway — with a visit to an escape room.


Part of a fun and growing trend nationwide, escape rooms see participants locked into a room or playfield where, to successfully “escape,” they must find the clues needed to solve a series of puzzles. With a clock counting down the time remaining for the players to accomplish their shared group goal, escape room games force participants to work together toward a common objective, making it a bonding experience for many participants.


Of course, considering the long list of family-friendly attractions on the Grand Strand, it should come as no surprise that the Myrtle Beach area has no shortage of these fun attractions. When your vacation crew is looking for a fun adventure during your next Myrtle Beach visit, check out one of these five top area escape rooms:
