Escape Rooms Coming to Universal Orlando

Calling all movie fans! Universal has announced that movie themed escape rooms are coming to Universal Orlando CityWalk!

Universal's Great Movie Escape

Universal’s Great Movie Escape

Two of the most popular movie franchises will now have their own escape room or escape adventure at Universal’s CityWalk. “Universal’s Great Movie Escape” will open Fall 2022, with two amazingly themed rooms. The first room will be Back to the Future, a great movie franchise and one that once had a ride themed after it at Universal Orlando. This ride sadly closed in late 2007, with the Simpsons Ride taking its place. The other room will be themed after Jurassic Park, another exciting movie franchise. This room will bring a few more hungry reptiles to the area that we can also see at Islands of Adventure.

More Details

The same creative minds who are behind Universal’s famous spooky celebration Halloween Horror Nights are also behind Universal’s Great Movie Escape, so we know this will be great! The escape rooms will likely be taking the space of the former location of The Groove at CityWalk. Universal has also trademarked the name of the venue and merchandise. This will be the park’s first ever escape rooms, and are said to be “can’t miss experiences” and “next-level escape puzzles”. They will follow the innovative storytelling and themes that Universal is known for!

The choice is now yours; would you rather travel back in time with Doc Brown in a time-traveling adventure? Or will you choose to go on an exciting dino-themed adventure? Universal has said that tickets will go on sale in the months ahead of opening, so keep an eye out!


Not all of the details have been announced for these movie themed escape rooms yet. However, it’s enough to get Universal fans excited for the news! This is certainly an exciting new addition coming to Universal CityWalk. The combination of escape rooms and these awesome movies is going to be legendary. We can’t wait to see how the escape rooms turn out!
