Indoor Fun for the Young at Heart in the Litchfield Hills Last Updated: January 2021
Whatever the weather is like outside, the fun is non-stop inside, throughout the Litchfield Hills. From auto racing to escape rooms to virtual golf to axe throwing (yep!) and more, there are lots of unusual attractions to challenge and delight the adventurer in you! All of these are open and following strict safety measures due to COVID-19. Just be sure to check with each location before venturing out, as hours and activities may change.
Escape 101, Danbury
If you are looking for a unique and challenging group entertainment experience, Escape 101 has a mission for you! Your team of players (typically 4 to 10 people) will enter a themed-puzzle room which is then locked shut. A timer is set for 60 minutes, and in that time, your team must collect clues and solve a series of puzzles in order to retrieve a key or code to unlock the door and escape the room before time runs out (each team can get up to three “hints” if they get stumped along the way). All game rooms are thoughtfully designed to offer an immersive experience with unexpected twists that require thinking outside of the box as you collect and decipher valuable clues. Think you are up for the challenge?

A BYOB facility (beer and wine only), Brass City Raceway & Axe Throwing will take your event from ordinary to extraordinary.
Wigwam Escape, Washington
Want to get a real feel of how Connecticut’s native people lived back in 1518, when they had to hunt for food and search for water just to survive? The Wigwam Escape is the award-winning escape room designed to transform the usual museum experience from viewing history to living it! This 90-minute thematic puzzle game is the perfect outing for three to five of your besties as you are set up in a traditionally sourced wigwam to figure out clues in order to get back to the 21st century.
