Gold Rush: For nearly two centuries, the hope of gold has lured people to the hills of Northern
California. No one was captivated more than Clyde Hamilton, a greedy gold prospector
who loved to gamble. Clyde made too many bets with the wrong crowd and now he’s
missing. You’ve been tipped off to where he stashed his gold… but so has the mob.

Mission: Mars: You’ve just landed on the red planet for an exploratory mission, but your spacecraft experienced some major damage on the descent. Unfortunately, there is a larger problem at hand: a large fatal amount of cosmic radiation is heading towards Mars, which will cause serious damage to the control systems, making it impossible to get back home. You have exactly 60 minutes to repair your ship and launch if you ever want to see Earth again.
The Heist: Your world-class espionage outfit has landed you inside a prestigious art museum. A recently stolen masterpiece is presumed hidden within the office of the museum’s egotistical curator, Vincent Hahn. With the help of your intelligence agent on the outside, you have one hour to find your way into Hahn’s office, recover the painting, and slip away before Hahn returns.
Prison Break: The year is 1955. You’ve been wrongfully accused of a crime, and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Your new “home” is a cell that once belonged to
an inmate who disappeared without a trace…or did he? Some claim he escaped. Others
swear he was murdered by the infamously cruel warden. But no one actually knows…
can you escape before you suffer the same fate?
Special Ops: Mysterious Market: You and your fellow field agents were sent to investigate the area’s local market. It’s late, it’s quiet…but something’s not quite right. Just as you are about to wrap up your inspection, you encounter a twist you never expected. Should you have seen this coming?
TEG escape rooms will keep your team on their toes guessing until the very last second. During their mad rush to escape in 60 minutes, their ability to communicate will be tested, their willingness to collaborate will be essential, and ultimately, they’ll either win or lose together as a team.
