Jewel Thief: Edge Escape Room’s Newest Adventure

Is that a piece of the puzzle?

Several months ago I was part of a hosted group at Edge Escape Room in Kissimmee. We did the Save the Magic School adventure, which is the easiest of the four escapes. We had a blast. Recently, myself and four others had our plans derailed because of rain. We thought that trying Edge Escape Room’s newest adventure, Jewel Thief, would be the perfect way to pass the time.

No ducks were harmed in this adventure!

At Edge Escape Room you’re given basic instructions, then locked in your first room. Everything you need to advance is right before you. Can’t figure something out? Just wave your hands, and your Game Master will give you a clue. Our Game Master was DJ, and she was fantastic. She would provide the right amount of information every time.

The suggestion box was hilarious! (And yes, this picture is supposed to be on its side.)

In Jewel Thief, you’re a rookie burglar, training for a jewel heist. You have one hour to break into the safe and steal the jewels. There were clues everywhere, and nothing was to be overlooked. While it was a serious “crime”, there was plenty of humor in the scenario. I especially liked the names on the security badges. Some of the puzzles were fairly easy to figure out, while others were quite difficult. Sometimes we would work together, and sometimes we’d break off and work in smaller groups or even as individuals. An hour goes by fast, especially when you’re stuck on a puzzle!

Another puzzle to solve

While we did manage to break in and steal the jewels, I don’t think that the banks have much to worry about from our group. We never would have made it into the safe without the help of our Game Master.

I saw a dog so I snapped a picture…

Edge Escape Room has four different scenarios. Save the Magic School has an unofficial Harry Potter theme, and it’s the easiest. Wonderland is the second easiest, and has an Alice in Wonderland vibe. Jewel Thief is next on the difficulty scale, and it is a lot of fun! The most challenging room is Adventure “S.O.A.E.” Edge Escape Room is family friendly. There are no clues way up high, and no “adult” content. Your escape is private, you won’t be paired with another group. Each room is for 4-6 people.

Uh-oh…laser beams!

If you aren’t sure what to do on a rainy afternoon, or if you’re looking for a fun activity for a day outside of the theme parks, give Edge Escape Room a try! It’s also great fun for locals. Edge Escape Room is located at 3253 Rolling Oaks Blvd., Kissimmee, Florida, 34747. That’s just a few minutes from Disney’s Animal Kingdom. You can learn more information and buy tickets here.

We found the jewel!

And once again, our thanks to DJ. We literally could not have done it without you!

Making it to the end was rewarding!
