Decode Detroit






The world’s first escape rooms opened in Japan in 2007.

What is an Escape Room? It’s an immersive game in which a team of players have to find clues, solve puzzles, and accomplish tasks in one or more rooms in order to accomplish a specific goal in a limited amount of time, usually the goal is escaping the room. The key to everything is teamwork.

Although located in the city of Ann Arbor, the confusingly named ‘Decode Detroit‘ escape room is one of the best escape rooms in the United States, according to USA Today.

Decode Detroit is a multi-sensory urban escape adventure.

It typically takes about 45-60 minutes to complete. The cost is around $60.00 flat rate per group.

The Decode Ypsilanti escape room features The Aurora Society, a 60-minute long escape room. It follows the story of Minerva, a sassy artificial intelligence. Players must choose whether to help her escape or work against her to keep her locked in her motherboard. This location is ideally designed for groups of 6-8 people. Tickets here are $30/person and there is a 6 ticket minimum.

Created by Patton Doyle in 2016, Decode Detroit also has an upcoming location in Detroit’s New Center neighborhood.
