What a great Team experience! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and got an insight on who takes charge within our team. Looking forward to the next time!

BY FAR the best in the area! We drove from Bloomington and it was worth it! The Staff was incredibly helpful in not only setting up a time but in the experience all together. The Room was AMAZING, the attention to detail blew me out of the water and the clues were just challenging enough. I will definitely be back; everyone needs to go here!
Ramsey H.
This was such a fun experience! We brought 6 young teenagers, so we weren’t sure how they would do. They loved it! We loved it! The escape was challenging and so creative. Everything about the experience was so impressive. Thank you!!
Laurie A.
We chose Brainstorm Escapes for our marketing group activity and were very happy with the experience. Not only did we have a lot of fun, but we also discovered a lot about each others strengths as each of our teams worked together to solve the puzzles and ultimately escape our rooms. I definitely recommend Brainstorm Escapes for anyone planning their next team outing
