A big emerging trend in gaming is the concept of an Escape Room, a cooperative game that puts you with a group working together to solve puzzles to escape a carefully designed puzzle of a room before a certain time.Paramount Pictures and Skydance have announced they are teaming with AMX and IMC to launch escape rooms at four theaters in major cities around the United States to promote the upcoming release of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Seems like a perfect match to me.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it… The Mission: Impossible Room Escape will only be at all of these theaters for a two day time period, and considering each team will get 20 minutes in the room, there will likely be limited availability — so reserve your tickets now! Read the full Mission Impossible Escape Room press release after the jump.

Disney has been very busy refurbishing some of their older attractions. Last year Disney added new effects to Big Thunder Mountain, Alice in Wonderland and the Indiana Jones Adventure. This year already Disney has revamped a bunch of attractions, adding the Hatbox Ghost to the Haunted Mansion as well as adding new effects and an awesome new animatronic Yeti to Matterhorn (too bad the new vehicles kill your butt).
And the newest attraction to get refurbishment is Peter Pan’s Flight, one of my favorite rides in classic Fantasyland — I just love suspended dark ride vehicles, which is one of the reasons I love the Universal Studios’ ET Adventure ride. Walt Disney Imagineering has released a video showcasing the new additions to the attraction, giving us a behind the scenes peek into the thought and work that went into the new effects. Watch the video now embedded after the jump.

You can’t help it, everytime you’re on a rollercoaster you stick your arms out and up even though there is a fear that they will somehow be torn off during an unexpected turn or drop in the ride. I know I feel this way everytime I ride Space Mountain at Disneyland. So how does Disney ensure that park guests never lose a limb on their attractions?

This year marks the anniversary of several movies, including the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, the 40th anniversary of Jaws and the 25th anniversary of Gremlins 2: The New Batch. But there’s another film that may not be quite as celebrated, but deserves to be honored for its 30th anniversary this year: the murder mystery comedy Clue.
Based on the classic board game of the same name, the film brings to life the strange and perplexing murder mystery that keeps getting worse as the stormy night carries on. If there’s one piece of evidence to show that adapting a board game into a movie can work, it’s Clue. And Gallery 1988 is paying tribute to the movie with a collection of fantastic, original artwork.
