4 Activities That Keep You Out of the Summer Heat


Are you ready for summer, Lakelanders? You better get that way, because the heat is on its way to stay. Of course, there are plenty of outdoor activities in Lakeland if you don’t mind the heat, but today I’m sharing 4 fun activities around Lakeland you can do indoors this summer.

1. Test your mental skills at Escapology.

Escapology is a live escape game in Lakeland with 4 games for you to enjoy while staying cool indoors. The Cuban Crisis game is set in the 1960’s Cold War era, and your mission is to solve the clues to prevent a nuclear war between the U.S. and The Soviet Union. In the Budapest Express game, a murder has been committed on the train you’re traveling on, and you must follow the clues to discover who the perpetrator is. The Antidote game sets you in the middle of a race to find the antidote for viruses that could wipe out the entire world. And in Th3 Cod3 game, you must stop the hacker “Nitr0” from spreading a computer virus to drain millions of dollars out of U.S. bank accounts.
