Trapped! Escape Room | 1796 Coventry Rd
    With all of the intrigue of a haunted house with none of the actors or fake blood, Trapped! Cleveland offers locals the chance to escape one of their riddle-filled rooms. Anyone clever enough to attempt can choose from the not-so-creepy pirate room, the dingy prison cell or the gore-infested chainsaw room to escape from. Once inside, groups are locked in and have 60 minutes to solve the room's puzzles in order to beat the timer and win their freedom. Be careful though. Once the timers run out, groups will face certain peril. Or they'll just be let out by the guard on staff. Either way, Trapped! brings the Halloween fun without being overly cheesy or gory this season. (Photo by Brandon Koziol)
