Escape Extinction: Sharks
Presented by Escape My Room

Escape Extinction is located in the lobby of Entergy Giant Screen Theater. Guests do not need to purchase a ticket to the Aquarium to participate!

The journey begins at the dock of the sleepy fishing community of Port de la Porte as guests board the SS Audubon, an advanced research vessel operated by H.A.R.T. (Human Animal Rescue Team). Guided by a captain, guests will experience different interactive areas filled with games and puzzles. Guests will need to save the sharks and board the escape pod to complete the mission. The mission will take about an hour, but guests can leave at any time through specially marked exit doors.
