Lakeland Escape Room is independently owned by Ana and Andrew Gillespie, self-proclaimed escape room enthusiasts. After visiting escape rooms around the country and internationally, the couple decided to bring one to Lakeland in 2016. Ana and Andrew create the escape rooms themselves, coming up with the theme, the storyline and all of the puzzles and clues. This is a huge bonus for enthusiasts who may have visited a large chain brand of escape rooms – Lakeland Escape Room will be a unique experience to all who visit.
Lakeland Escape Room is a live action escape room game in downtown Lakeland featuring 4 different challenges (a 5th challenge is coming soon) for small groups. Participants will 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.
The Escape Rooms
Each room features a unique challenge.
Your sweet friend Nina has an ‘alter’ personality you are about to meet. You’re stuck in Nina’s bedroom when her personality suddenly goes from sweet to scary. Get out before her “bad” side gets you.
Something’s wrong at the Willowbrook State Insane Asylum…and it isn’t the patients. The doctor has something up his sleeve, and you need to get out of there…QUICK.
You thought you’d be having an exciting time at a movie premiere, and in the blink of an eye, your ticket’s gone! Looks like you thought wrong.
You thought you were going to get away with mining your secret emeralds to continue building your empire. Not so fast, the authorities have been tipped off! You and your alleged coffee plantation business in Colombia, is about to get BUSTED! Can you avert the police and escape before it is too late!
Most importantly, Lakeland Escape Room is kid-friendly. It is recommended that kids be at least 11 years old if they are entering the challenge without an adult. If younger kids want to participate with older siblings, friends or adults, they are welcome at any age.
Individuals are welcome to play these logic-based, real life games by themselves but most participant groups have 2-8 people in them. Since Lakeland Escape Room has 4 escape rooms, you can bring up to 32 people at one time. Once the 5th escape room is open, 40 people can be accommodated which is great if you’re coming to Lakeland for a sporting event or family reunion.
Lakeland Escape Room Details
