Escape The Room Challenge

The Game Is Afoot. The Question Is – Can You Escape? The answer depends on you and your group’s abilities to solve puzzles and unravel clues.

Escape The Room Challenge is a next-generation interactive adventure based on the classic “escape the room” on-line video games. But unlike a video game, players are real people locked/trapped inside a real room with a real problem to solve. They must find clues and solve puzzles in order to escape…all the while the clock is ticking!

Escape room adventures are the latest entertainment attraction sweeping across the nation, taking the popularity of the on-line video games and transporting them to a real-life setting. Escape The Room Challenge offers a highly themed, simulated adventure in which a group has one hour to problem-solve a series of clues, puzzles and mental challenges while possibly encountering a few red herrings along the way.

Currently, there are two themed rooms with a third on the way. Esmeralda’s Curse places gamers in a mysterious gypsy fortuneteller’s parlor, where a murder has been committed. Gamers have one hour to solve clues and escape before the gypsy curse descends upon the room. Escape The Mob takes place in an old warehouse containing mob-stolen valuables and participants have one hour to solve the clues and earn their freedom before the mob returns to commit certain mayhem.

Esmeralda’s Curse can accommodate up to10 players at one time; Escape the Mob can accommodate up to eight players at a time.

By the end of the year, the new attraction will add an additional themed room and likely yet another themed room in 2016. The total four themed rooms will make Escape The Room Challenge one of the largest such escape attractions in the United States.

Escape The Room Challenge is open year-round from 10 am to 9 pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Admission tickets are by reservations only and are now available on-line at

The Escape the Room Challenge is across the parking lot from the world’s largest indoor model train display, EnterTRAINment Junction, at 7391 Squire Court in West Chester, Ohio.
