About the Room

Following the success of The Timekeeper’s Trapped!, we embraced the challenge of pushing creative boundaries. Departing from the dark and mysterious theme prevalent in many 2017-era escape rooms,  Escape Factor aimed for a different look and feel. Striving for a light-hearted theme geared towards families, a child’s bedroom with toys and games became the initial brainstorming idea for this room. However, to ensure visibility for everyone in the group and on camera, set pieces needed to be made larger and more colorful, resembling pieces on a TV set. And voilà! The concept of a game show-themed escape room was born!

With the polished aesthetic of a 1970s game show set, complete with shag carpets, Escape Factor enlisted the expertise of a design company to bring our vision to life. Tasked with making our ideas and puzzles exude showmanship and retro charm, a look evolved that married bold colors, bright lights, and clean lines. This award-winning room continues to attract participants from all over the country, inviting them to enthusiastically “Come on Down!”
