Enigmatic Escapes is an escape room which is an interactive entertainment experience where a group of people are challenged to investigate a room, discover puzzles and obstacles, and overcome those challenges before the clock runs out. Escape rooms are often compared with being in a real-life detective story. The business was created by Stephen Kohler and Veronica Melnick who met as students at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and began by offering Live Action Role Playing games for their friends and fellow RPI students. They continued programming weekend long events, orientations and short games and decided to make escape rooms a full-time job after experiencing one first hand in 2015.
Currently Lime Shirt Studios has one room available at the Troy location, which is set in the year 1893.
