Escape The Crate

A mystery subscription box that is perfect for all ages

Escape Rooms have gained popularity over the years as a fun and unique group activity. But what if you could have all that entertainment without leaving your house? This bi-monthly subscription box is a fun way to enjoy the excitement and suspense of those escape rooms right in your own home.

Some missions you could encounter include Escape: The Heist of Bonnie and Clyde, Escape: The Trials of Houdini, Escape the Titanic, Escape: Rock N Roll Spy and Escape the Mothman, among several others. Once opened, expect to find a treasure trove of tools and objects to help you solve the case such as letters, ciphers, puzzles, blacklights and other helpful items to help you complete your adventure.

In Escape the Mothman, for example, is an eerie, yet family-friendly, escape adventure. Travel back in time to 1967 to the quiet town of Point Pleasant, WV, where you’ll discover that in 1966-67, the small town was rocked by the appearance of a mysterious creature known as the Mothman. Described as possessing large wings and glowing red eyes, the creature roamed the woods and skies. Your mission is to go back to 1967 to investigate claims of a Mothman sighting where your name was uttered by the creature. An abandoned cabin holds the secrets you need to solve the case, where the radio crackles with incomprehensible codes and strange men in black suits roam the streets waiting for your arrival. With only one hour to explore the cabin, piece together the evidence and escape before disappearing into the night, can you escape the Mothman?

Escape Crates are also the perfect addition to school lesson plans as well. Intended for students in fourth through eighth grade, these boxes are sold separately and are not a part of the subscription. Instead, they ship out to schools across America to help encourage critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork, and to be used as an outlet to help teach the content. All these adventures are cross-curricular and meet Academic Learning Standards. Perfect for homeschooling a few students or having fun with an entire classroom of kids, students work in groups of six to solve puzzles and practice their skills. At the end, the students reset the adventure themselves so it can be used again for the next class. The best part? No teacher prep required.

There are different subscription packages per monthly crate arrivals, all of which range from $29.99 to $159.99. Although Escape the Crate does not offer refunds if you do not like the box, some items carry over from box to box, so you will need to hang onto certain items to complete future boxes. Customers also have the option to buy new or retired games by visiting the website and seeing available adventures. And just in time for the holidays, Escape the Crate also makes a great gift. Not sure which subscription to start off with? Purchase a gift card and let the detective in your life choose for themselves how they wish to embark on their own escape journey.
