This afternoon, Carson’s teaming up with his TODAY show co-horts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie to tackle one of NYC’s newest fads, Escape The Room.

Here’s the premise: You and a few friends get locked inside a room and you have 60 minutes to use the props and clues around you to discover a way out.

Carson spent all morning trying to google spoilers or helpful hints online and came up empty-handed, so he called up creator Victor Blake to see if he could squeeze out any insider info:

“Well, we don’t want to give too much away, but it’s just like a real-life video game. You’re the main character in the story,” Blake explained. “And if you’re smart and even a little bit lucky, you’ll escape.”

The concept reminded us of Blackout, the terrifying haunted house experience that came to Los Angeles a couple years ago, but Blake says there’s no reason to be nervous.

“There’s nothing scary about it, other than you are locked in.”

Listen to the rest of their chat below.

Escape The Room plans to expand to multiple cities within the next few months, including right here in Los Angeles.

Tune in tomorrow morning to find out if Carson was one of the lucky 15% to “escape the room!”
