Pokemon GO! has brought out the inner gamer in an estimated 25 million daily users. Whether you’re among them or not, there are plenty of ways to kick back and have some fun in Genesee County.
Take part in a real-life adventure game at Michigan Escape Games (9023 Davison Road, Davison). After selecting their preferred theme, players must solve several clues in order to escape from a locked room within 60 minutes. For instance, in one of the rooms, participants learn that the Centers for Disease Control has accidentally released a contagion capable of wiping out the entire population of earth. There’s a single vial of anti-virus located somewhere in the lab but your team has only an hour to find it. After that, the damage is done!
