The Grimm Tale at Stark Caverns

AN EXIT GAME IN THE CAVE?????? Oh yeah, we had to do that.

A few months ago, we had the privilege of working with Shawnee Bluff Winery for our incredibly fun and successful Valentine's event. Little did we know that this event would lead to a new relationship with Drew Busen of Lake Escape whose wife Cassie works at Shawnee Bluff. Drew came along with Cassie when she checked out the cave for our planned Valentine's event. He immediately saw the potential for a very cool on-site exit game and shared his idea with Charlie Starr, our Cavern Manager. Charlie and his wife are big fans of Escape Room games and loved the idea. They took Drew up on his offer to "sample" their capabilities by visiting their site at the Lake. They loved it and were impressed with the quality and creativity of the Exit Room games that Lake Escape had to offer.

After having one of his partners visit, the planning work began in earnest. We don't want to give away too much, but we can tell you that the game takes participants through 4 famous fairy tales, providing riddles, clues and challenges within each. Once you've successfully navigated all 4, you receive a clue that allows you to successfully complete the game and escape the cave.

The game launched Memorial Day weekend -- starting at 6 p.m., after our regular tour hours, and has been running two weekends in a row, every 3 weeks. There will be 4 games run each evening, with each game lasting 60 minutes. Bookings may be made through the Lake Escape website. Lake Escape developed, installed and will run the game that is located inside Stark Caverns.

This is truly a unique experience. We have not found any other “cave escapes” in the world. The closest has been some sort of escape opportunity in an old mine in France. Book your visit today. We look forward to seeing you at the cave!
