St Louis Escape Update July 23rd, 2016
Sat, July 23, 2016

We are truly sorry we haven't been able to fully open our escape rooms to the public just yet.  We are not worried about 'cashing in' like all the other mediocre escape rooms in and around St Louis.  What we want to do offer simply the best experience your money can buy.  Two of our three escape rooms are 110% ready to go and our 3rd 'Subway Escape' is nearly complete.  The problem is the heat and the building needs new air conditioning units.  We are installing these units right now.  Once they are installed we will open our escape rooms full blast to the public. 

The Subway Escape will be ready for testing within a week... the Subway escape features a motion based subway car, digital clues, special fx, and you must defuse a massive bomb.  A full blown promotional video is coming soon!

Please stay tuned for more updates as we are almost ready to go!

Lastly during the Halloween season (September and October) our escape rooms will be open DAILY! See below our times and dates for the Halloween season.

Escape Room - Update
Tue, July 05, 2016
We still have not yet opened our escape rooms.  We are within a week from finishing the 3rd escape room (Subway Escape).  The issue is the air conditioning.  We will have our 3rd Escape Room done along with the air conditioners within the next 14 to 17 days.  This roughly puts us opening around July 25th.  Once we know for a fact the air conditioning will be done we'll will update our website.  

KEEP IN MIND these are the best escape rooms in the area by miles upon miles.  NO OTHER ESCAPE ROOMS in the area can compare to what we are offering.  Our Escape Rooms offered tours to Escape Room owners WORLD WIDE back in March and where hailed as the best in the nation.  Our Subway Escape will be the best one ... most Escape Rooms not only around St Louis but across the country are created for budgets less than $50,000.  Our escape rooms have cost nearly $450,000.00 created by the best production company in the World.  

There is a difference and once you experience them you will agree.  

ZOMBIE LASER TAG UPDATE:  It has been determined that without air conditioning across the playing field our zombie actors would not make it thru the night.  The Zombie Laser Tag will OPEN when The Darkness haunted house opens this September.  Zombie laser tag will be open September thru December.  Our website is being updated NOW for all the details. 

Thank you for your patience.
