With intricately themed rooms and challenging puzzles, escape rooms offer an exciting and engaging experience for groups of friends, families, and colleagues. Whether you're uncovering clues or racing against the clock, escape rooms provide an exhilarating challenge that will leave you wanting more. 


Glow Putt Mini Golf 

Who doesn't love mini golf? Especially when it's a neon adventure waiting at Glow Putt Mini Golf in Scottsdale. 

This isn't your ordinary putt-putt course; here, families and friends challenge each other on 18 holes, all illuminated under the enchanting glow of black lights. Not to mention that each player is armed with a glowing putter and a dark bracelet, adding a magical element to every swing. 

And for those looking to celebrate in style, there's a party room ready to accommodate up to 30 guests, making every occasion a luminous celebration. 

Arizona Science Center 

Lumping the Arizona Science Center into the “just another museum” category doesn't do it justice. 

This location is a wonderland where interactive exhibits aren't just stuck to the walls but are begging to be poked, prodded, and played with. It's where the phrase “Please Touch” should replace “Do Not Touch” signs. 

This marvel of science and fun houses not only a fantastic exploration of permanent exhibits that ignite the curiosity of kids (and let's be honest, adults too), but also a rotating featured exhibit that keeps the adventure fresh every visit. 

Imagine creating memories with your family as you all become mad scientists or astronauts for the day, thanks to the hands-on activities that make learning feel like playing. 

And just when you think you've seen it all, there's a theater and a planetarium waiting to whisk you off to the stars.
