Us vs. Them! Top 5 reasons you should choose Escapades Escape Rooms!

we rock.pngescapades escape rooms sioux falls sd

Customers ask us all the time, "What is the difference between you guys and Escape 605?" We love this questions because there are lots of reasons. The biggest reason is this: Escapades creates everything right here in Sioux Falls, SD! We dream up the themes, develop the puzzles, build the props and completely develop the rooms from beginning to end! The other group simply purchases their themes and puzzles from a company out of state and then just assembles the rooms.

The fact that our ideas are 100% our and unique gives our rooms an edge over our competitor, and we hear it daily from our customers! There really is no comparison when it comes to the room designs.

#2 - Our staff rocks!  Our goal is to make sure that our customers have the best possible experience! And we have been blessed with a staff who truly does just that. You will leave feeling like you gained a friend during your visit to Escapades!

#3 - We can offer you a private room for your group every day of the week with just 4 tickets purchased, except for Saturdays and can offer you the full room for 75% of the room tickets purchased! We appreciate the fact that some people just do not like to play with strangers. So just call and book with us and ask for exclusivity and it is yours!  It is all about the customer experience at Escapades, and not about the almighty dollar!

#4 - We have lower ticket prices. Adult tickets are nearly $3.00 less per ticket at Escapades once all the taxes and fees are tallied! That is a $30 dollar savings for a group of 10!

#5 We offer 5 clues and a way to "earn" a 6th clue by completing a fun task! Unlike our competition who offers offers only 3 clues and then customers are asked to pay $5.00 for a 4th clue. :( It is no fun to sit unable to solve a puzzle to move on for the rest of your remaining time. Our clues offer customers the ability to control their own game and not just get "stuck" for good.

So if you have had a maybe not so savory experience playing elsewhere, we highly encourage you to come and play at Escapades and see how great an escape room experience can be!

Escapades Escape Room Sioux Falls SD Argus Leader

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!"

Escapades is adding new rooms!

Escapades Sioux Falls SD Escape Rooms

Recently featured on 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!

Does it matter if you’re a right or left brain person?  Guess what, everyone is both.  Check out this info-graphic from  This article includes a little word/color test to show you what the left and right brain control and how they work together.  Want to improve your skills?  Try out our Escapades Escape Rooms.  It will be one of the most enjoyable work-outs you could give your left AND right brain.
