What They REALLY Want This Christmas


Exhausted Santa ClausTrying to find that “perfect gift” for everyone on your holiday shopping list can seem like an impossible job. Even Santa gets stumped sometimes!

Sure, sweaters and socks are useful, but a gift that provides an opportunity to spend time together is more meaningful and one that will be cherished.

That time together could be as simple as conversation over coffee or a shared meal; but this year, consider something totally different that is fun for just about everyone: a game at Great Escapes Harford, the county’s newest hot spot.


Launched in September, Great Escapes Harford is the only “escape-the-room” attraction in the area. Escape rooms are the latest trend in interactive entertainment; and challenge players to work together to escape a themed room or solve a mystery by finding clues and solving a series of puzzles and riddles. It’s part scavenger hunt, part mystery game and LOTS of fun!

Ian Egland also came to Great Escapes Harford for his first time playing in an escape room. He says, “My girlfriend and I read about this in the paper and had a GREAT time when we went! I will definitely be playing again, and will also probably be giving a gift certificate to a friend.” Lynn Ripley played at Great Escapes too, and adds, “We had a fantastic time and cannot wait to come back for more!”

Gift vouchers to Great Escapes Harford can be purchased online—ideal for last minute shoppers! They are good for one year and can be used by the recipient for any open game at a time convenient to them. The gift-giver can purchase an entire room (up to 10 tickets) or as few as one.
