After bursting in popularity along the east and west coast, escape rooms have found their niche in middle America. Cape Girardeau now has a second escape business with Escape Cape opening its doors - offering two new immersive puzzle rooms for fans to test their wits against.
Kylie Sexton, co-owner of Escape Cape, says that response from the community has been very positive, “We have been extremely excited about the response from the community, especially those that have gone through our escape rooms. We feel like this will give people a unique, live action experience that provides a lot of fun and excitement.”
Escape Cape opened in April, and now has two live-action adventure games for mystery enthusiasts to solve. ‘The Killer’s Lair’ puts players in the clutches of a serial killer. Locked inside his lair, participants must solve riddles, puzzles, and follow the clues to find their way out before the killer returns.
The second room is ‘The Pirate’s Cove’ where players will board a vessel in search of hidden treasure. This nautical-themed adventure is newly open this week, with a special discount for those who book now.
Each room gives players 60 minutes to solve all the enigmas, and teamwork is key. “It can be very beneficial for businesses who are interested in building a strong team and giving their employees a fun opportunity to do so,” Kylie says. 2 - 8 people can enter the escape room at one time and work together to find a way out.
“We have had a blast building these rooms and interacting with the public as we provide this service.”
Escape Cape is hoping to have the third room ‘The Pharaoh's Tomb’ open in another month. They are located at 1231 Broadway. Visit their website for information and booking.
Over at Talon Falls Escape, located in West Park Mall, they’ve added a new escape room as well. ‘Treasure Hunt’ is a pirate-themed adventure where sleuths must find the treasure and get out before time runs out. Check out the new addition on their website.
