There are lots of exciting things coming to Audubon Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans over the next couple of years. However, a new addition is just a month away.

The Aquarium announced the addition of an escape room which will debut in October. "Escape Extinction: Sharks" is a new family-friendly interactive experience presented by Escape My Room.

The mission of this escape room is to save sharks from going extinct.

“We’re super excited about bringing Escape Extinction: Sharks to the community. The attraction is somewhat similar to an escape room, but much more cinematic and family-friendly,” says Andrew Preble, Founder of Escape My Room.

Escape Extinction will be located in the lobby of the Entergy Giant Screen Theater. Guests do not need to purchase an Aquarium ticket to participate.

Tickets for Escape Extinction can be purchased online at www.escape-extinction.com or at any Audubon Nature Institute ticketing booth.
