What new I-Drive escape room the Bureau lacks in lucky timing, they make up for with creativity and ambition
Many people have reached peak cabin fever and, despite Florida’s continually climbing coronavirus case loads, are desperately seeing diversions outside their own overly familiar four walls. Are you eager for cutting-edge interactive amusement, but the idea of attending a theme park (even with all their safety precautions) is still too overwhelming? It may seem counterintuitive to leave your house only to get locked in again, but an escape room like the Bureau (5400 International Drive, thebureauorlando.com), which debuted earlier this year, might be just the sanitary entertainment you’re seeking.
Opening an intimate, hands-on indoor attraction in the middle of a global pandemic is about as far from ideal circumstances as one can imagine. But what the Bureau lacks in lucky timing, they’re trying to compensate for with creativity and ambition, as I learned from co-founder and CEO Alexis Santos last Friday.
