Things to do in New York City, New York (NY): The Best Game & Entertainment Centers

October 16, 2021 Veronika Gaddis

Conquering New York in one visit is impossible. Instead, hit the must-sees – the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art – and then explore off the beaten path with visits to The Cloisters or one of the city’s libraries. Indulge in the bohemian shops of the West Village or the fine dining of the Upper West Side. The bustling marketplace inside of Grand Central Station gives you a literal taste of the best the city has to offer.

The Rage Cage

The Rage Cage is a unique and fun way to let off a little stress that New Yorkers just always seem to have. People go to The Rage Cage to smash plates and bash a variety of electronics such as VCRs, laptops, office phones, and more. Head-to-toe safety gear is provided by the staff so you are sure to be protected while smashing that printer with a baseball bat.

Clue Chase - Bryant Park

Clue Chase is New York City's largest escape game center. Our mission-based play style, expertly crafted puzzles, and large rooms designed by actual film and TV set designers make Clue Chase the most exciting room escape center in New York City. You will become a spy during the Cold War, an archaeologist trapped in an Egyptian tomb, a real life Robin Hood stealing valuables back from a master thief, or travel to an unknown galaxy to prove humanity's worth to intergalactic civilization. Clue Chase is an exciting adventure to share with friends, coworkers, and family of all skill levels.

Such an amazing spot! I have been to all four of Clue Chase's rooms, and they are all amazingly designed and very challenging and fun. The puzzles in the rooms are very creative, and the rooms are definitely a great activity for people of all ages. The staff are all very helpful and friendly and will give you extra clues if you need help while in a room. They are also very understanding if you have a member who is running late (as this has happened to me on almost every occasion), and will let them in late or let you wait for them. I have done three of the rooms with groups, and one of them in which we were with people we didn't know. While it may sound daunting to be locked in a room with strangers, we definitely all had a great time. I definitely have to say that Alien Encounter is my favorite, as the room has a great design, and the puzzles require a lot of team effort. I actually did this one with a group I was in a play with, and we all had to act as our character in the show. It was a great character-building exercise, and I would totally do this room again! I also appreciate how there is a story connecting the rooms, unlike some other escape-the-room places. I cannot wait for Clue Chase to make another room!

I’m a New Yorker at heart and this Rockefeller Center Is in the ❤️ of Manhattan and a year round attraction. Of course nothing beats viewing the Christmas Tree in Winter, but stop here where the rink is transformed into a pop-up lounge/bar. There is shopping an d light eats located under the buildings and Too of the Sixes restaurant (Rainbow Room) with lovely views of the city. Yes, a little bit of an expensive tourist trap, but is a must do! Walking distance to 9th Avenue restaurants, the Theatre District, Radio City, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and mass transit.
