The best Salt Lake City escape room experience

About the escape room game

This escape room adventure around downtown Salt Lake City 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 Salt Lake City. 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 SLC to track down clues and crack the case!

This real world escape room is the most unique escape room in Salt Lake City. 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 Escapely's Salt Lake City escape room adventure and what you'll see along the way.

In Escapely's Salt Lake City escape room, you're a detective tasked with solving a mysterious murder. You must find clues and track suspects around the downtown area. (The clues are in the real world, but the suspects are on our app.) The game begins at a fact pole in a downtown green area. You will get to spend some time learning a little more about the animals and plant life found in Salt Lake City, a little about the Ute tribe that once inhabited the area, and more about the Great Salt Lake. Next, you'll walk to City Creek Bridge, a steel pedestrian sky bridge made from steel that had to be lifted into place in one piece above the train power lines in the middle of the night.

One of the most fun clues in the Salt Lake City escape room is the "You Are Here" art installation, an eclectic collection of signs that also makes a great photo op. Next, you get to walk up and down Main St to take a closer look at the businesses in the area. It's also a great opportunity to stop for a bite to eat or grab a drink. Finally, you will look for clues at the Book Wall mural, where you can get a picture of your team appearing to hold up giant books. You can end the game anywhere you like, but we suggest Kafe Mamai as a place to solve the final puzzle. This outdoor escape room is the perfect way to explore walkable and interesting downtown Salt Lake City.

Salt Lake City escape room FAQ


Yes, but it is not generally recommended unless you are a serious escape room enthusiast.

Downtown Salt Lake City is known as a dynamic and artistic area, with a mix of high rises, residential areas, art galleries, restaurants, bars, and museums. In the summer, there are open-air concerts, farmers markets, and plenty of people out and about. It's very walkable (and even has free public transportation throughout the downtown) so it's perfect place to play an escape game adventure. And while you play, you are surrounded by gorgeous views, because the town is directly at the foot of the mountains. At night, the Temple lights up, creating a beautiful sight against the backdrop of the mountains. And while Salt Lake City is quieter than many cities its size, a thriving food scene and increasing selection of coffee shops and bars offer plenty to do after you play.
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 Salt Lake City!
