As an avid escape room goer, Beat The Bomb is unlike any other escape room that you have been to, Beat The Bomb brings so much more with their unique, one-of-a-kind interactive games. They have more than just rooms with locks, drawers and hidden objects, as they bring a fully immersive live arcade game experience with the finale room being the ultimate showdown of trying to defeat the paint bomb. Dressed in the perfect attire for defeating a bomb of any kind in a hazmat suit, complete with a clear fanny pack so that you can keep your phone on you for photos and videos of your experience, which is awesome as most escape rooms do not allow the use of your phones in their rooms but this one does as it doesn’t ruin the experience by showing your friends.
Throughout Beat The Bomb’s 5 different game rooms, gamers are treated to some very fun interactive, 10-minute games including Hack Attack, Laser Maze, Echo Chamber, Floor Grid and of course the Paint Bomb Room where you will play to beat the Cyberbot. However, coming soon on February 11 to their 1-hour experience, new options will be available with their all new 5-room course which will include some new and improved, upgraded unique games like a new version of their Laser Maze and the new Block Monster paint bomb.
In-fact we got a first look at their brand new, immersive video games that are coming to you in just a few days on February 11 and we can tell you first hand that you are in for a treat with these fun new games. Not to mention the games that have already been established at Beat The Bomb are nothing short of an INCREDIBLE time.
All of the games are recommended to be played with a team of 4-6 people but the games can also be played with more friends if you have a larger group. The games definitely require a lot of team work, so make sure you bring family and friends who are willing to work together to escape each game room, to earn more time to defeat the paint bomb at the end of the gaming experience. During your experience, you actually become a part of the games, racing against the clock to “Beat The Bomb,” one of the world’s largest paint bombs.
During our visit at Beat The Bomb, we had the opportunity to sit down with the CEO and founder of Beat The Bomb in Brooklyn, Alex Patterson, to discuss his expansion plans and more. Patterson told us that with his previous experience at Tough Mudder, he learned that he loved “the idea of teamwork, and that every good obstacle, was not only a good physical obstacle but a good communication teamwork obstacle,” continuing to say “I love experience businesses” and that he wanted to make a city version of something similar to Tough Mudder, which ultimately led to his Beat The Bomb idea and making something more than just one of the non-unique escape rooms.
Beat the Bomb also has some very exciting plans to expand their business to Philadelphia, PA and Washington, D.C. bringing these cities one of the best, most exhilarating group games around later in the year. Patterson told us about the expansion plans, where he told us that Beat The Bomb will be coming to “Philadelphia in July and [Washington] D.C. in December,” continuing to tell us, “I think it is going to be a big success.” After checking out both the current and the coming games at Beat The Bomb, we can totally see this one-of-a-kind experience rapidly expanding throughout the world within no time.
Beat The Bomb is located at 247 Water Street, #103, in Brooklyn, New York and you can book tickets for your paint bomb experience on their official website.
