Get a Room
Too hot to play outside? Take it indoors at one of the city’s growing number of escape rooms. The new Smuggler’s Den at Escape My Room (p. 36, shown) plunges participants into pitch-black darkness, making it the award-winning venue’s most challenging concept yet. Novices will have better luck unlocking the Mardi Gras Study, Jazz Parlor or Inventor’s Attic. Clue Carré (830 Union St., 504.667.2583) plays to the city’s darker side with double the number of rooms, ranging from Haunted Swamp to Vampire Hunter, as does Mystere
Escape Rooms (4800 Canal St., 504.483.2350) with its Serial Killer Lair and Embalming Room Zombie Escape. How fitting for a former mortuary.
