Definitely check this out! Unlike most escape rooms this one actually takes place in a historic bank. This makes it way more fun! Highly recommend. You won't regret it!

This is a well-planned activity with lots of challenges, and a great way for a group to work together. The owners are very friendly and eager to share their knowledge of the building's history. Their future plans should ensure repeat business.

This is a twist on the escape room concept where you are trying to break IN to the vault. We had great fun and the owner was wonderful. He gave us an overview of the history of the bank and shared some of their plans...More

Escape room concept in an old large bank. More interesting and personal than most escape rooms I’ve been to. Very well executed and the owner afterwards will tell you about the history of the bank and interesting facts.

The hosts were super gracious and helpful with our energetic group of teenagers. They even stayed late to let us enjoy birthday cake. The girls had a blast! We enjoyed the historic building too. A fun evening for all.

Thanks for the cake! Your daughter did a nice job with the decorating, Sand was a little gritty, though. Ha ha, JK. Graham cracker "sand" was delicious!

Tonight we tried the First National Escape. We loved the twist on escape rooms where we were breaking into the bank and vault, rather than trying to escape from a room. The hosts were very friendly and very interesting to talk to after the event...More

The experience was a lot of fun. It was challenging, but we were not left hanging with frustration. The artifacts and history of the bank were really neat. I think that 6-8 people would definitely be the maximum that I would want to do this...More
