The Escape from Grand Central Scavenger Hunt

Congratulations: you’ve been poisoned!

That’s the bad news at the start of this team-building game. The good news (sort of) is that the evil genius who did this is challenging you to solve a series of puzzles to come up with the combination to a box that contains the antidote. Sure, you can escape a room, but can you unlock the box and escape Grand Central with your life? 

You’ll follow the villain’s diabolical trail of clues that leads you to all parts of Grand Central Terminal. You’ll tackle devilishly tricky questions about what you find, interact with our staff to solve sneaky puzzles, and ultimately crack a code to unlock the box. Think your team is up for it?

New questions! More puzzles!

If you’ve done the Secrets of Grand Central Scavenger Hunt (which is more of a whirlwind walking tour), there’s good news: this escape-game version features all new questions! But be warned: this hunt is more challenging.
