Hugely popular as an activity for family and friends, as well as team-building awaydays for businesses, the goal of escape room games is to find your way out of a locked room within a given time limit. To do so, you need to work as a team to solve logical puzzles, uncover clues, and follow a storyline to unravel the mystery. Each riddle brings you one step closer to the ultimate escape. Here are five of the best escape rooms currently on offer in Sin City.
