The Fantastic Escape is Open!

We've missed you and we're taking all reasonable precautions to keep you, your fellow guests, and our game masters safe.

We're excited to see you and your group at one of our two locations!  We require everyone to wear a mask while at the Fantastic Escape.  Don't worry, we have a few spare, just in case you forget one so you can still play the game!

Our rate is $25 per person.

Our new Game Plan:

  1.  All guests and game masters are required to wear a mask.
  2. Everyone must wash hands (or use sanitizer) before entering the room and again when exiting.
  3. We've extended time between games to allow for extra cleaning procedures including wipe downs of game pieces and room surfaces.
  4. Only one group will be allowed in the lobby at a time.
  5. Have fun!

The Fantastic Escape!

The Fantastic Escape is Eastern Iowa's highest rated escape rooms. With an emphasis on story, theatrics and an immersive environment, our games feel like you've stepped in to a movie! Find the hidden room, crawl through a grid of lasers, or sail away on the high seas! Each of our rooms are an adventure!

What is an Escape Room?

Escape Rooms are live action video games where you're "locked" in a room (don't worry, you're not really locked in a room) and have one hour to solve the puzzles and escape the room! It's a battle of wits while you race against the clock, with the ultimate challenge to make a Fantastic Escape!

Who makes the puzzles?

The Fantastic Escape Game Masters are passionate gamers with backgrounds in scenic art, storytelling, and engineering, creating unique and challenging puzzles that are fun for everyone.

Our artists/game designers have worked for premier entertainment venues in the world, building props and sets for Orlando area theme parks, Universal Studio's Halloween Horror Nights, Cedar Rapid's NeverMoor: Tales of the Strange as well as many theatrical productions here in Eastern Iowa.
