That truly shows that our team members are pleasing our guests.”

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2018 Tampa Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Tampa Award Program and data provided by third parties.


About Can You Escape?

Can You Escape? is Tampa’s #1 escape game provider. The two-year-old company boasts one of the largest escape room venues in the world, hosting up to 75 people per hour and currently operating 8 rooms with another opening in July. The venue offers team building groups, families, friends and teams of all sizes the opportunity to Escape from the OfficeEscape from London, take the King’s Challenge with The Medieval Adventure, and be Trapped in a Room with a Zombie. The concept of escape rooms, also called puzzle rooms or real-live escape games, is the fastest growing trend in attractions worldwide. Teams are locked inside fully themed rooms and have one hour to find the clues, solve the puzzles and figure out a way to open the door. Their popularity exploded so suddenly that TripAdvisor has had to change their algorithms several times because the games were ranking higher than international landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the British Museum, and the Statue of Liberty.
