“You and I who still enjoy fairy tales have less reason to wish actual childhood back. We have kept its pleasures and added some grown-up ones as well.”
Fairytales have captured hearts and imaginations for centuries. Always bringing the reader back to their magical scenes, teaching lessons in bravery, and giving one something to dream about. Escape from Storyworld was created in this ideal, to draw our players into the depths of a magical world.
Escape from Storyworld is one of our games at our Downtown Location. The story takes place as you and your friends are whisked away into a magical world, but have been led astray by an evil witch. You must restore the magical book back to power in order to escape the witch’s clutches and return to your own world.
The concept for Escape from Storyworld, was built upon a former room at our Downtown location, “Grimm Cabin.” Grimm cabin was a 30 minute game that focused only on the Brother’s Grimm fairy tales. The owners at the time charged Heather with creating a new 60 minute game. In order to do this, Heather expanded the game to include a larger number of Fairytales, and “Escape from Storyworld,” was born.
This room was built to feel family friendly and include things for kids to do – but also to bring out the inner child in adults who play. The whimsical feel of the story by including popular and well loved Fairy tales, accomplishes this. We love that this room appeals to little girl dress up birthday parties, and adults who just want to feel like a kid again.
As to the difficulty of the room – the record escape time on the room was the first ever group who tested the room! Completing the room in just 27 minutes led to initial worries that the room would be too easy. However, over the test of time and larger sample – the room remains at a 50% escape room.
If you are looking for something whimsical and fun – look no further! Whether you and your friends want to be swept away into a magical land, or you want your kids to experience stepping into their imaginations – this room will be a perfect fit!
