Universal Orlando opens escape room experiences on December 9

Guests can now book escape adventures inspired by Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s Jurassic World and Back to the Future films by purchasing tickets for Universal’s Great Movie Escape — comprised of two escape room experiences, opening on December 9 at Universal CityWalk at Universal Orlando.

Universal’s Great Movie Escape invites guests of all ages to solve their way through a pair of escape rooms based on two popular film franchises. Universal’s entertainment team partnered closely with filmmakers and escape room industry experts around the country to create innovative experiences that go beyond the typical escape room — blending state-of-the-art challenges, detailed sets and original storylines to immerse guests in story-driven adventures that allow them to escape into the movies.

Another unique feature of Universal’s Great Movie Escape is the variety of challenges guests must work together to complete — each one specifically crafted so that the experience is enjoyable for novices and escape room-aficionados alike. Each adventure boasts eight detailed environments featuring activities that are:

  • randomized – so the solution can vary with each visit
  • customizable depending on party size – ensuring everyone gets to participate
  • designed to adjust based on skill level and complexity – so there’s always something to solve

Guests who enter the art deco-style, theater-inspired venue will have one of the following adventures to choose from:

Jurassic World: Escape

Guests are new geneticists at a secret lab on Isla Nublar, where they are undergoing training that includes the completion of various day-to-day tasks that range from feeding ferocious dinosaurs to splicing dinosaur DNA to create new genetic codes…until they learn an apex predator has broken free and now they must work together to avoid becoming its prey.

Back to the Future: OUTATIME

Guests are transported to a museum in 1993, where they learn Back to the Future’s antagonist, Biff, is up to his antics and has stolen Doc Brown’s newest time travel device to sabotage the space-time continuum. Guests must work together to uncover Doc Brown’s clues as they travel through time to track down Biff and save the past and future before they run “outatime.”
