Plot Synopsis

Three pairs of players are taken to a secret location that none of them has ever seen before -- places like Alcatraz and The USS Hornet -- where the teams then race against each other to find a way out. To raise the stakes even higher, the players won't be alone. They will have to avoid detection by guards and others whose job it is to stop anyone and everyone from escaping. Players must rely on their wits, skills and whatever tools they can find to overcome obstacles, evade pursuers and make their way to freedom, where host Rich Eisen waits to hand the winners a cash prize.
