Escapades Escape Rooms are the leader if you are trying to Escape in the 605 area! Codes and ciphers are often found in escape rooms, so learn the difference between the two.
We are working on our 5th Escape Room here at Escapades Escape Rooms in Sioux Falls!
We will be opening this room in late March or early April 2018. We need your help to name our room. If you submit a name and we select your name, you will get to bring a group of friends to play our new room for FREE! In fact, you will be the first group to ever get to play it!
Here is some more information about the new room that needs a name. You are traveling through a small town and a local Sheriff pulls you over and arrests your entire group. He takes you back to the local station and locks you up in separate cells and leaves. as you look around it becomes clear you are never going to leave that small town. Now you have one hour to escape before he returns to finish what he started.
Please email your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will choose a name by 1/25/18.

5. Normal looking things can be special too
6. There are surprises waiting for you, if you look for them
7. Working together is best and makes you a winner
8. You should tell people when you discover cool stuff
9. There is a reward and sometimes it's just knowing you did it

In a book by James Flynn, PhD, of the University of Otago in New Zealand called “Are We Getting Smarter?” he says that I.Q.’s in the area of problem solving have increased 2-4 points per decade since 1900. He credits advancements in education and family nurturing.
How can you actually increase your I.Q.? According to “wikiHow to Increase your IQ,” there are three factors that can increase your I.Q. They are… 1. Changing your routine; 2. Practicing Your Skills and 3. Changing your diet. You should check out http://www.wikihow.com/Increase-Your-IQ for more details.
Under “Practicing your Skills,” the page recommends doing problem solving games and new experiences to increase your IQ. Good news! You can cover both of those at our Escapades Escape Rooms. Book Now Braniac!

Escapades is excited to announce that we are officially taking bookings for the Pirate Shipwreck starting June 20th! After months of planning, construction and puzzling we will begin testing the room this weekend!
With the growing demand in escape rooms we are excited to be a part of this popular new pastime. "Once the Shipwreck is sailing we will begin on the jail room!" said Kari Black. "Dreaming up the concepts and then seeing them come to life is super fun."
Escapades was recently featured in a business article by the Argus Leader in Sioux Falls along with the other worthy opponents! "It is fun to see how much support there is in our community and how many repeat customers we get," said Black. "We just hope the trend continues for years to come, because we intend to keep bringing the thunder!"

Keep on Escaping Sioux Falls!
Recently featured on siouxfalls.business with Jodi Schwan, Escapades is excited about the new escape rooms they are soon offering!
Pirate Shipwreck is the next room opening the soonest scheduled for June 2017. Once up and going Escapades owners Doug & Kari Black will begin working on the 5th room featuring a jail theme. "Each room we create has new features, puzzles and excitement," said Kari Black. "We don't just purchase our rooms from someone else like some of our local competitors."
As Escapades rooms open customers will take note of the technology used in the rooms. It takes a lot of work and extra thought to bring the high tech props to life! "We couldn't be more excited to see the first few groups go in and see what we have created!" said Doug Black. "It is interesting how people find the clues and solve the puzzles. It is not always in the same way or order."
Keeping new exciting escape rooms coming to Sioux Falls is a fun challenge and Escapades is up to the task!
