Universal’s Great Movie Escape to Open December 9th, Tickets on Sale Now

Alicia Stella Theme Park News

Universal Orlando Resort’s new escape room experience will officially be opening to all guests beginning Friday, December 9th.

“Universal’s Great Movie Escape” features two separate escape room adventures based on Jurassic World and Back to the Future. Tickets are available for purchase now, starting at $49.99 each or $300 for a private group.

Universal Orlando says “It’s Not Just an Escape Room. It’s an Escape Adventure.”

Now you can escape into the movies like never before. Find yourself in a secret genetics lab and use your wits to avoid becoming the prey in Jurassic World: Escape. Or stop Biff Tannen from sabotaging the timeline in Back to the Future: OUTATIME. This is no ordinary escape room experience.

Universal’s entertainment team partnered closely with filmmakers and escape room industry experts around the country to create innovative experiences that go beyond the typical escape room – blending state-of-the-art challenges, detailed sets and original storylines to immerse guests in story-driven adventures that allow them to escape into the movies like never before.

These escape room adventures are separately ticketed experiences, located at Universal CityWalk, and are not included in theme park admission. Pricing may change depending on date and time.

The following are the official details for each of the two separate experiences available. You must purchase a ticket for each of the two adventures separately to experience both.

Back to the Future: OUTATIME

Great Scott—Biff’s at it again! He’s stolen Doc Brown’s newest time travel device to sabotage the timeline for his gain. Follow Doc’s clues to find the prototype, track down Biff and save the day before you’re outatime. No escape room in the past, present or future has ever been like this.

Jurassic World: Escape

Find yourself in a secret genetics lab on Isla Nublar and use your wits to solve a serious problem: an apex predator has broken free and is headed your way. This escape room has more teeth (and claws) than anything you’ve experienced before.

A unique feature of Universal’s Great Movie Escape is the variety of challenges guests must work together to complete – each one specifically crafted so that the experience is enjoyable for novices and escape room-aficionados alike. Each adventure boasts eight incredibly detailed environments featuring state-of-the-art activities that are:

  • Randomized – so the solution can vary with each visit
  • Customizable depending on party size – ensuring everyone gets to participate
  • Designed to adjust based on skill level and complexity – so there’s always something to solve
