Nearly two years in the making, the Paniq Escape Room and Lounge debuts later this month at the Grand Canal Shoppes, featuring seven interactive game spaces and a bar and lounge serving themed cocktails.
Located on the third floor of the Venetian next to Spiegelworld’s Atomic Saloon Show on the mezzanine level, players have just 45 minutes to solve clues in the Steampunk, Haunted Manor, or Wizard Trial escape room environments. Future experiences at Paniq Escape Room will also include the opportunity to break into the Venetian casino’s bank vault.
Cocktails have been designed to complement the games, and patrons are encouraged to use the lounge and then exit through a red door to begin playing their escape room game.
Among the drinks selection are themed cocktails like the Time Traveler, the Safecracker, and the PanIQ Attack, along with a mochatini, cherry negroni, and the Venetian Spritz. Original plans to offer a small food menu have been dropped.
Tickets are $39 per person or $44 for private entry. Open daily, 3 p.m.to 9 p.m. Bar and lounge open weekdays, 10 a.m. to 12 a.m., and until 2 a.m. on weekends.
