Fox in a Box Escape Challenge Locks in Excitement

By Kelly Church

Fox in a Box is a room escape franchise with 27 locations around the world. The Miami, FL location opened shortly after the opening of the Los Angeles, CA location (the company's first in the U.S.) in December 2014.

The game follows the same principle as many adventure computer games. You use riddles and clues to find an escape for a locked in room. The difference here is instead of playing on a computer, you are physically locked in the room with your teammates, looking for a way out.

"We are personally intrigued with escape challenges and we try to constantly keep improving what we have to make the experience the best it can be," Manager Jovana Manojlovic says. "People like the hands-on immersion experience. [During] the [game] time, they are having the experience, nothing else matters."

There are five different room escape themes: bank robbery, Mr. Fox's Secret Office, Nuclear Bunker, Prison Break and Abandoned Zombie Lab. Each room takes 60 minutes of creative thinking, common sense and teamwork to escape. Large groups are able to split up into multiple rooms.

"The room is packed with hidden objects and artifacts," Manojlovic says. "Every one of them is a lead that helps you find the next lead, and so on. By analyzing drawings, text riddles, or merging objects, you can find a code that opens a lock on a chest, or a key to a drawer."

Manojlovic says most people get stuck at some point. Each room is equipped with cameras and hint buttons. Game supervisors carefully watch as people try to successfully escape. If at any point escapees are truly stuck, they can press the hint button, but they can only request hints once every ten minutes. Manojlovic says there are plans to add a new escape room that is the most challenging, only having 45 minutes to escape and no hints.

The minimum number of people required is two and the maximum is six, for one room. Team members must be at least 15 years old to participate, due to the game's complexity and audio/visual effects. Cost for a game is based on the number of players, starting with a $99 minimum for up to three players. Each additional player costs $33.
