OKLAHOMA CITY - The Uptown 23rd District is booming with new businesses.

The Escape OKC is Oklahoma's first ever live action escape game.

A team of people gets locked in a challenge room and have one hour to escape by gathering clues and solving puzzles.

"The first thing they do is break apart the room, they make it as messy as they can and try to find all the clues in here," said owner Andrew Gipson.

The clues could be anything, from letters, to words, locations on a map or tools.

Each clue is part of a bigger puzzle, leading to the escape, before time runs out.

"Right now we have a 25-30% success rate, the other percentage is pretty close, about 80-90% done with the room but there are a couple things they couldn't get," said creative director Jonathan Cox.

Anywhere from two to six people can work as a team to try to crack the code in one of two challenge rooms.

One room, called the "Forgotten Outpost" has a Cold War, 1960's era vibe.

The other, named "Four Brothers," takes place in a philosopher’s study with elements all around.

"We're selling a unique experience for you and your friends. It's hard to be locked in a room trapped somewhere where you have to work together in real life, where you not playing a video game," said Gipson.

The game is geared to challenge the individual both mentally and physically.

The cost is $74.99 per team, to book your challenge visit
