Milwaukee Staycations

Are you looking for something fun to do with family or friends in Milwaukee this summer? I’ve looked around to find you local entertainment small businesses that are open and ready to host your staycation.

Save Milwaukee Escape Rooms has been back running its McSnooty’s Gallery of Fine Art Escape Room since June. They use UV lights to sanitize the room between groups, and during the closure last spring replaced some of the clues that are often handled and hard to disinfect with new ones that are easy to clean.

“In the past, McSnooty’s was geared for corporate events and sports teams. But we’ve changed to adapt it to families,” says Shlomo Levin, the owner.

Agents are told that the Art Gallery is suspected of being a front for a ring of thieves using a machine to ping the chip inside of credit cards as people walk by outside on the sidewalk to steal their information. Your task is to sneak into the gallery and scour it for evidence of the crime before security comes in sixty minutes. If security arrives before you find the proof, you’ll be the ones in trouble.

“McSnooty’s is different than most other escape rooms because we send you your mission briefing by email and text you the code to the door for you to enter on your own. The only interaction with our staff, who wear N95 masks, is brief at the end,” Levin says.
