Jackson's first real-life escape room is the first of it's kind in
mid-Michigan. Participants will test their wit, problem solving,
and teamwork skills by entering a locked room in which they
have sixty minutes to escape. This is the premier form of
entertainment for gamers, movie buffs, adrenaline junkies, and
corporate or academic team leaders. As a group, participants
must find clues, and solve a series of puzzles and riddles to
escape before their time runs out!
Escape rooms have been featured in television series like the
Science Channel's "Race to Escape", ABC's "The Bachelorette",
and CBS's "The Big Bang Theory". Jackson County natives,
Savanah Sheets and Shane Stephens, bring EpIQ Escapes to
fellow residents offering them a chance to experience a unique
form of entertainment. This attraction is great for first dates,
bachelorette parties, youth organizations, and couples looking
for a new way to spend their Friday nights. Each room has a
distinct theme and transports participants into a theatrical
alternate reality where they must use logic and detective skills.
Escape rooms have been opening rapidly in major cities across the United States since 2012. Escape game enthusiasts have been known to travel across state lines to experience this "next big thing." This is a great attraction for those who like haunted houses, fantasy, sci-fi, and adventure games, books, or films. Participants have already called EpIQ Escapes' first room "highly addictive". Co-owner, Shane Stephens says, Jackson deserves this kind of thing. We've already had such positive reactions and support from local area businesses. We are really excited to share what we've been working on!"
