Where History Meets Escape Room

An Exciting New Entertainment 

and Team Building 

Experience is Here!

Our Rooms


Welcome to the office of Pastor Baker.  So many crimes... so little time.  Can you solve this one?

For Pastor Baker, the world has turned upside down.  A tragic "accident" took the life of his wife and kids, his home burnt to the ground with suspected arson,  and both the church account and his personal bank account was drained with no trace of where the money went.

Given the amount of money and nature of the crimes, a very special team of agents are needed to search the preacher's office for clues to find out who is behind all of this.  

This room is great for team building, family gatherings and group parties.  The room is very busy and larger groups can fan out and work multiple puzzles at the same time.  Room capacity:  4-10 players but this is a busy room so we highly recommend at least 6 players.   

Effects are used in this room.  If you have a medical condition that would be impacted by strobes or fog effects, please call to discuss with our team.  Physical agility is required for this room.  You must be able to bend, stoop, kneel and walk a flight of stairs. No young children under 8 permitted.

Where There's A Will, There's A Way

Clara's sweet apartment

We have lost a beloved member of our community, Clara Gold.  She loved to play games and it seems her last challenge for friends was to hide her will.  Unfortunately, no one has been able to find it and without it her entire estate will be taken by the STATE.  Clara was such a beloved member of our community and worked for the Children's Home... we are certain she would want her money to go to the children there.  But unless her will is found in the next hour, the courts have already processed the paperwork and her apartment will be cleared.  The Sheriff's office is coming to secure the property and you are our last chance.  

This room is great for groups of 2-6.  No climbing.   Many computers working behind the scene and this room will surprise you at every turn.  Puzzles are abundant and everyone will stay busy.

Speakeasy escape room Under Pressure at Key to Escape

In 1925 our city had a devastating fire that nearly leveled three city blocks.  The fire was started when the hidden still at Key and Co exploded after being left unattended.  The owner of the still had been nabbed by police and no one was able to find the hidden valve key to release the pressure from the still in time to save our city.  We have built a time portal machine and have the opportunity to send your team back in time for only one hour to try to save the still and our city from ruin.  The pressure is on as you race the clock.  Many surprises await.  

Some physical agility is required for this room.  If you have mobility issues, please call our staff before booking.   Effects are used in this room.  If you have a medical condition that would be impacted by strobes or fog effects, please call to discuss with our team - some accommodations can be made with advanced notice.  Room accommodates 2-6 players.

Special Events Start at Key to Escape


Birthday celebration

People of all ages deserve a party!  Our staff will help you organize everything and we can even hide a notes, gifts or a special treasure in the room to be discovered during the game.  Birthday guests get a free T-Shirt with a party of 6 or more.   We can even help arrange reservations at local restaurants, breweries, or wine shops in the area.  Many of our partnering businesses offer our groups discounts.  

Youth Organizations, Sports Teams and Camp Counselors and Campers

Youth organizations, teams, and campers all enjoy an escape and opportunity to bond.

Youth and young adults benefit so much from team or group bonding events that help them interact in new ways.  They learn a lot about each other and enjoy the escape from day to day.  Our staff will help them see how this fun event actually has purpose.  

Gender Reveal and Even Baby Showers

Gender reveal party

What better way to share the news of an expected baby, the baby’s gender, or even host your baby shower in true ESCAPE THE WOMB style.  Our staff will facilitate and help keep the secret.  We can arrange the last piece of the puzzle to be your big news and nudge the group along as needed to be sure you get there.  

Pop The Big Question In Style Or Celebrate Your Special Day

Proposal, anniversary, promposal

Imagine the surprise when the game ends with finding a ring box, prom invite, or special gift to celebrate your anniversary.  Our staff will help you make the arrangements.  Bring friends and family to share in the surprise.  We will be glad to arrange dinner reservations after to continue your celebration.  

This is one of our favorite things to do at Key to Escape.  

Family Reunions or Out of Town Guests

Guests or reunions

Getting groups to interact is our thing!  Unexpected guests.... no problem.  Friends you have not seen in a while.... got you covered.  Family gatherings and need something fun to do.... we are the place to go.  We are even open most Holidays with special hours.  So after the presents are opened, while that great dinner is being prepared, before the big event when everyone is waiting around.... arrange for a group escape!  

Some family gatherings can be awkward.  Starting with an escape adventure will give everyone something to talk about other than your life choices.  The memories will last much longer than the food.  

Girls Night Out or Bachelorette Parties

Girls night out

Okay, we will allow guys and bachelor parties too.  But so far we have found this is a popular way to start an amazing night out with the gang.  

We are glad to help facilitate limo transport, restaurant or area wine bar visits, or even a tour of local vineyards as part of your experience.  Or just come and ESCAPE THE GROOM or HIDE FROM THE BRIDE!
