Official Press Release:

Lakeland’s First Escape Room Game Set to Open in December

Lakeland, Fla., October 17, 2016 – Will you be able to escape?

Lakeland Escape Room is a real-life escape room game in which a group of participants find themselves in “locked” rooms, clues hidden throughout, with one mission—to escape. A cross between scavenger hunt and a puzzle, players must work together to escape in the allotted amount of time.

Set to open in December, Lakeland Escape Room features three different room themes—asylum, cinema, and speakeasy. Each room has a different mood, design, size, and level of difficulty, but the time limit remains the same—60 minutes to get out. Themes of the rooms will be changed on a rotating basis to periodically give players new challenges.

Ana and Andrew Gillespie, owners of Lakeland Escape Room, are self-proclaimed escape room enthusiasts, and after visiting escape rooms around the country and internationally, they decided to bring one to Lakeland.

“We cannot take a vacation without an escape room being a part of the adventure,” Ana said. “We knew Lakelanders would love having their own escape rooms downtown. We are so excited to bring this awesome adventure and entertainment to our hometown of Lakeland!”

The escape games offered at Lakeland Escape Room are perfect group activities suited for team building exercises, a night of fun with family and friends, or a date with your special someone. Players aren’t required to register with a group, and individuals or small groups can be placed in a room with others.

Prior to opening, the Gillespies are planning to launch several exciting contests to their email subscribers. People interested in having the opportunity to be among the first to experience Lakeland Escape Room should visit the website and subscribe to receive email updates.

Lakeland Escape Room will be located in Downtown Lakeland at 308 E. Pine Street. Once open, players will be able to schedule their group’s time slot online at
