    Baltimore Escapely

    My partner and I played and gosh was it a treat. Escapely took us to sites we haven’t been to since we were kids. We were taken on a tour of our own city that let us see with fresh eyes. Murals and statues that were part of a backdrop were shifted into focus. The story was fun, the puzzles were great, lots of ah-ha! Moments. There are even hints if you need them. I can’t reccomend this enough.

    Fun way to explore the city

    We enjoy these puzzle adventures when visiting other cities. Its a great way to get feet on the ground the first day and explore a bit of the area casually while keeping the brain working just enough, and often finding unique nooks you might not otherwise notice. This one was well put together, with some unique props and puzzles I hadn’t seen before. Definitely not overly taxing, and the hints are well thought out where needed to keep things moving. The endgame was fun to work through over coffee for a relaxing end. We’d recommend, and plan to play some of the other adventures in other cities as we travel.

The best Baltimore escape room experience

About the escape room game

This escape room adventure around the Inner Harbor takes the best parts of an escape room and the best parts of a scavenger hunt and merges them into the most fun thing to do in Baltimore. You get to search for clues hidden in the real world and then use them to solve escape room puzzles. When you solve for a code, the app will tell you where to go look for your next clue! Instead of trying to escape the room, this Escapely adventure takes you around Baltimore's Inner Harbor to track down clues and expose double agents!

This real world escape room is the most unique escape room in Baltimore. It takes you on a clue-solving adventure to find clues, solve puzzles, and follow an immersive storyline. If you want to keep the experience a surprise, don't read this next bit - it contains some spoilers about where you'll go on our Baltimore escape room adventure and what you'll see along the way.

In Escapely's Baltimore escape room, you are a top secret spy tasked with exposing a ring of double agents threatening to take down the agency. We suggest starting near the Baltimore Science Center because it's near your first clue, which is right next door at the Adventure Play and Nature Play Playground. If you have time to head inside, it's an incredible center with activities for people of all ages. From there, you head to the Baltimore Visitor Center and then McKeldin Square, which was recently renovated in 2019.

One of the escape room clues is at the Baltimore National Aquarium, and if you're with kids, it's a great place to stick around a visit after the game. There is even the Port Discovery Children's Museum nearby. We suggest ending the game at Power Plant Live! which is a former power station now turned into a collection of bars, restaurants, and music venues. It's a unique feature in Baltimore that is not to be missed. Of course, there are no clues to find there, so you're welcome to choose any other place in the area, but it's worth a visit if you have never been.

Baltimore escape room FAQ


Yes, but it is not generally recommended unless you are a serious escape room enthusiast. It would be like playing an escape room that has the same storyline and similar puzzles, but with different clues available. Because the clues are integrated within the Inner Harbor, the clues are different than all other Spyhunter games. But the puzzles will feel familiar.
The Inner Harbor is a family-friendly neighborhood in Baltimore great for sight seeing, making it perfect for an outdoor escape room. It has beautiful harbor views while you play, and you will even get to find a clue on one of the piers. There are many museums and attractions, like the Maryland Science Center and the Baltimore National Aquarium. You can also see and tour historic ships floating in the harbor. And if you're hungry after the escape room, there are loads of seafood restaurants in walking distance.
It's both! In a traditional escape room you must solve puzzles that lead from one to the next to escape the room (or a series of rooms). In Escape the City you must solve puzzles that lead from one to the next, with clues in the real world. It's one of the best things to do in Baltimore!
The most convenient place to leave your car would be the Maryland Science Center, which is right at the start of the game, but you can park anywhere in the Inner Harbor area. If you prefer public transportation, the closest light rail stop is Pratt Street/Convention Center.
There are no indoor clues in our Baltimore escape room game. Everything is publicly accessible.
It's a self-guided adventure around Baltimore's Inner Harbor for couples, families, individuals, friend groups, and anyone else looking for a fun thing to do in Baltimore.
