How good are you at putting clues together to solve riddles or puzzles?

Soon you'll have a chance to test your mettle in a new live action escape challenge game opening next week in Tulsa.

The idea is you and your friends are locked in a room, and you have to solve a puzzle to get out.

Andrew Gipson opened Escape OKC a few months ago and it's been wildly successful.

The premise is simple: find the clues, solve the puzzle and escape the room in an hour or less.

"About 38 percent of the groups escape on time," Gipson said.

That means most don't.

They have two rooms ready now, a third soon and, perhaps, more on the way. Each room is its own mystery.

Gipson said people always want to know which rooms are the most fun.

"We tell them it not the room you go in; it's the people you go in with," he said.

It's a great way to begin an evening out with friends.

The Escape Tulsa opens next Thursday and you can start making reservations online this weekend.
