Our owners Ana & Andrew Gillespie opened Lakeland Escape Room in 2016. It would be the first escape room in Lakeland.
One thing you might not know about Lakeland Escape Room is that our rooms–the storylines, each and every piece of intricate contruction, the puzzles, the clues, the riddles…everything–comes straight from the Gillespie family. Ana and Andrew (and their 3 children, one of which you might have as a Game Master) enjoy spending their spare time traveling the world, going on adventures, and turning those adventures into the escape rooms you can experience right here in Lakeland.
Coffee Cartel was inspired by the Gillespies’ travels to Colombia and The Final Kingdom draws from Andrew’s homeland of Ireland.
Meet our hardworking team! These guys and gals make Lakeland Escape Room what is is. Their job is to make sure your escape game goes off without a hitch and to ensure that you have FUN…and they take their job seriously!
And when they’re not running games, they’re helping build the actual escape rooms. True story, our team makes these rooms truly special.
