Myrtle Beach Room Escape: This was the first escape room established in Myrtle Beach, and fans of mysteries and adventure still love coming here. Myrtle Beach Room Escape has only two escape venues available at a time, but they change often, so this would be a great place to come time after time to try your hand at a new challenge.
