What is Exhilarating Escapes?

At EE we specialize in escape rooms in Normal, IL. You will choose from one of our four excellent themes and be locked in the room for one hour. We offer one-of-a-kind escape room games. The owners created the games, to provide a unique experience for the participants. As gamers ourselves, and escape room addicts, we know what works in escape rooms, and what doesn't.

We put a lot into making sure the experience you have with us, is an exhilarating one. As a matter of fact, with us, you won't walk into a room with 15 padlocks and have to try every code you find on all the locks. We wanted to reduce the total number of puzzles in each room, and did. Further, each puzzle in the room relates back to the story in some meaningful way. You are not solving random puzzles that don't make sense with the plot of the story.

Additionally, each of our themes was carefully designed. Some of our rooms are heavy on effects and imagination, while others are story-driven. Most escape rooms we have played do an alright job with the overall story. However, we wanted you to feel our stories, emotionally, to make the games that much better. Finally, when you leave after your room, we want you to feel as if you didn't just solve a bunch of puzzles, but experienced the theme.

So, why escape rooms in Normal, IL?

The owners, Nathan and Tom, are locals. We went to Kingsley Junior High School, Normal Community West, and Heartland. After playing an escape room together, we decided we could build our own, and have fun doing it. Thus, Exhilarating escapes was born. Here at EE, everyone is welcome, even if you or your child went to Normal community.
