UPDATE June 14 - There have been rumors since back in January of an Escape room coming to Universal CityWalk which has just been officially confirmed by Universal on their twitter page. Universal's Great Movie Escape is said to feature two "escape adventures" based on the two iconic films Jurassic World and Back to the Future.

A proposed opening date for this attraction has been given as Fall so guests who are excited about this upcoming experience are not going to have to wait too long. We will keep you up to date with further details regarding Universal's Great Movie Escape including ticket price information when it is announced on our news and Facebook page.

UPDATE (May 9) - The Universal themed Escape Room which is expected to come to Universal CityWalk has supposedly hit delays but is still expected to be opening before the end of 2022. 

Jaunary 14 - Patents are filed frequently by Disney and Universal with many never coming to fruition. There has been speculation in recent months of an Escape Room possibly coming to a location at Universal CityWalk and there has been further excitement this week as a patent comes to light which could point further to this becoming a reality.

A permit and notice of commencement has been tweeted for Project 235 at Universal CityWalk Orlando which is embedded below:

With ongoing rumors that The Groove won't reopen at Universal CityWalk there has been speculation as to what could replace it. The Groove has not opened at all since it was shuttered in March 2020 due to COVID-19.

Universal Orlando has not confirmed any details regarding the permenant closure of The Groove or any concrete plans for the opening of an Escape Room in the future. We will keep you posted as soon as any announcements are officially made.

This would, however, be an amazing opportunity for Universal and would surely be a hit with guests. It would also give Universal to chance to bring back classic themes which are so sorely missed by avid fans. We are very excited by this rumor and hope it will become a reality in the near future.
