Virginia Beach has all the elements of a classic seaside resort: gorgeous beaches, a lively boardwalk, plenty of restaurants and nightspots, and amusement rides sure to appeal to kids. Sports enthusiasts will find celebrated golf courses in Virginia Beach and the surrounding area, as well as sea kayaking and miles of hiking trails. Many believe Virginia Beach is at its best in the off-season, when the town is less crowded but the weather is still mild.

Breakout Games - Virginia Beach

This isn’t your average outing or everyday experience—Breakout is for those who would rather solve mysteries than watch someone else have all the fun. With different rooms that follow unique story-lines, you and your friends will have 60 minutes to escape your adventure of choice by cracking codes, solving puzzles and following clues. Part problem solving, part adrenaline, end-to-end fun!

The staff was very nice. Our group of 8 knew we were in for a good time, but the experience was more fun than we anticipated. Definitely more difficult than we thought so it kept us totally engaged and - finally - with a few helpful hints, we broke free with 70 seconds to spare! The entire group wants to go again to a different room ;-)

You, your friends, family, or co-workers have 60 minutes to escape a "locked" room, by finding clues, solving puzzles, unlocking secret doors and using elements found in the themed room to effect your escape. The key to success is teamwork! Only by working together will you be able to beat the clock and escape the room. Success depends on using a variety of skills, and communication is the key.

This was THE best attraction in all of Virginia! We had never had so much fun as tourists at an attraction. If we were locals we’d be taking all of our family members, friends & co-workers! Our neighbors too!( No kidding). Excellent set up. You feel you are in a movie set down to the last detail & anything can be a clue. The owner is helpful & extremely creative as it shows in all of the escape rooms he has. Very down to earth person with a wonderful personality! The price is SO inexpensive for SO MUCH fun! We recommended this attraction to the supervisor of the hotel we are staying in ( & he will be bringing his co- workers because he saw what great FUN time we had ). Imagine playing THE best part of every favorite game you’ve ever had, combined with unlocking the most magical mystery scenes from THE BEST adventure or mystery/ ghost movies....A blast of fun every second. Not a dull moment. Of all the souvenirs you can take this FUN experience souvenir will last in your memory a lifetime! Note: Best for couples, groups of friends, business, family of ALL ages. (Not toddlers) Great for summer days. Great for rainy days. Great for winter days. Great for snowy days. We went two times in a row. The best Escape Room in all of the nation is : ESCAPE2WIN. In a Cleveland Street. Virginia Beach, Va.

Countdown Escape Room Challenge Virginia Beach

Reviewed By JasonG134 - Baltimore, United States

If you're experienced with escape rooms and are looking for a fun date night, I highly recommend the Pirate room. Although the online booking won't let you reserve it with just 2 people, if you call the place directly they may be able to accommodate you as they did with us. It's a fun and well designed room, was plenty manageable with the two of us, and staff couldn't be friendlier.

Awesome date night! Happened to be on TA and saw they have a site. Booked our hour for Valentine’s Day weekend and I’m glad we did- they kept turning people away when we got there! Apparently it was their 2nd weekend open. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Happily surprised to see our session came with a coach who stayed with us and checked on us every 10 min or so. Taught us several ways to throw and how to play axe cricket. Loved the free water nearby too. We will definitely be back!! Very well run. Happened to get a sweet slo-mo vid of my hubs’ first bullseye too!! ???? ????

My wife and I went here with my brother, his friend, and his son. We did both of the rooms, and they were fantastic! The Dollhouse was particularly original, and we really enjoyed the setup of the Speakeasy. The gamemasters and staff were particularly fun and supportive and helped us have a really great time. We strongly recommend doing all of these games!!!

Mount Trashmore Park

Reviewed By edl228 - Schenectady, United States

We all have local dumping sites and land fills in our surrounding areas and it was great to see an area turn that land into something useful. The actual park is nice with plenty of pavilion spaces there are many different stairs to go up the hill. From there you get a good view of surrounding area. They also have an exceptional kids playground for all ages 1-10. No cost to enter and couldn't have found a better place to spend a day away from the beach while on vacation!

Grommet Island Park

Reviewed By 74terryp - Virginia Beach, United States

This little play ground has beach related statues, slides and climbing stuff. They can pretend to ride a surf board and catch a big wave. Since it is located at the end of the boardwalk at Rudee Inlet you can watch surfers at one of the best places in Va Beach, watch the many small boats come and go thru the inlet. There is a nice walkway that goes under the nearby bridge which will lead you to the fishing center, where you can take a whale/dolphin trip, rent a jet ski, look at the boats and eat at a lot of great restaurants. If you stop by the fish cleaning station look down and you will see plenty of bait.
