Escape Goat, an all new escape room experience, is now open in Winter Garden, Fla. The Escape Goat (a play on the word ‘scapegoat’) follows the typical escape room style, locking players in a puzzle-filled room and giving them an hour to find their way out. Attendees are also encouraged to try and complete special achievements such as finishing a room under a certain time or not using any hints.
Family owned and operated, the attraction currently features two complete rooms with additional rooms planned for the future. Each room contains a variety of puzzle types ranging from math and word problems to complicated mazes and mechanical devices. Also present is an attendant who remains in character to provide hints and additional story elements.
The current room offerings, themed after Sherlock Holmes and a haunted summer camp, feature state of the art light and sound effects as well as practical effects such as moving walls and scenery. Their upcoming room, themed around Area 51, will feature props and scenery created by some of the designers and craftsmen who have previously worked on Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights.

I think I may have seen “The Fast and The Furious” movie when it first came out, but I don’t remember much about it, so it was interesting watching the new “Furious 7” movie and seeing if I could tell what was happening.
The main reason I wanted to see it is because there’s a new ride based on the franchise coming this summer to Universal Studios Hollywood. I figure it will help me enjoy the ride more if at least know a little bit about the characters and storyline. I’m sure the ride will be fun without this knowledge. The same can be said for the movie. [Read more…]
