1,000 Escape Rooms 🤯

This week, we hit 1,000 escape rooms… and it comes with a whirlwind of thoughts and emotions. Before I dive into them, I’ll answer the question that many of you are wondering:

What game was your 1,000th?

The Depths from The Escape Game. They just opened up a new location near our home in New Jersey. It’s at the American Dream Mall in the Meadowlands. That mall is a bonkers place with a theme park, a water park, an indoor ski slope, and all sorts of other crazy things.
