Jeopardy! Champ Colby Burnett

Yeah, so Colby’s the only Jeopardy! contestant to win both the Teachers Tournament AND the Tournament of Champions.  But could he beat OUR Bonus Fun Time Game Show Challenge?  (It seems like they did!)

Empire Star Terrence Howard

Forest Park has a wonderful downtown strip with a small-town feel.  No wonder Empire’s showrunners wanted to film an episode on Madison Street, right outside of Escape Factor!

WGN’s Morning News with Marcella Raymond

Escape Factor had the privilege of being featured on a morning segment.  We were we able to demonstrate portions of our games to a live viewing audience.  As a bonus, we gave Marcella a little surprise!

Not only did Beni win Season 6 of the Gordon Ramsay reality show, she brought a bunch of fellow contestants for a mini “wrap party” after the season finale.  These kids had a blast splitting up into multiple rooms at Escape Factor!  (photo credit to Endemol Shine NA)
