Hey, are y’all looking for something fun to do? Well, here’s an idea.. head on over to Leander, Texas.  Never heard of it?  Well, maybe this will jog your memory.

Back in 1983, this little Texas Hill Country town made international news. A woman’s skeletal remains were found on a construction site. After close examination it was determined she was 10,000 to 13,000 years old. This site was one of the earliest intact burials ever found in the United States. This prehistoric woman was dubbed “The Leanderthal Lady”.

You can observe and read the burial markers, which are on the South side of RM1431, approximately one mile west of Parmer Lane. Make this your first stop into town, and then head over to the “Escape Room Leander”. The address is 2405 US-183, Leander, TX, 78641. It is the coolest thing since the hula hoop.  The escape room games are taking the nation by storm, and are so much fun, you’ll want to do it again and again. You are guaranteed a lot of laughs.

Now, imagine yourself going into a locked room with family, friends, or other tourists.  The room is locked and is filled with all sorts of clues, codes, puzzles and brain teasers. Your group will work together as a team to solve the game and finish before time runs out! You’ll have exactly one hour and two minutes to solve as many as possible. There are different rooms and settings to choose from and more are being added all the time. Book your time now and discover what this new phenomena is all about. Many companies are having their employees do this to raise morality and create cohesiveness in the workplace.
