Looking for New Things To Do in Danbury?
I met with Kris the owner of Escape 101, a new addition to the Danbury community. Growing up in Bethel, Kris always had a serious lack of things to do. You could either go to the mall, the movies or sit home and play video games. Escape 101 provides a fresh new look at entertainment for all ages. You have exactly 60 minutes to get out of the locked room. Your team will need to solve puzzles to earn keys or combinations to further your escape.
Escaping from the rooms takes serious team work. They have three rooms available with a fourth in production. For those like myself with a competitive mindset they have two of the same room for head to head battles.
What made you want to start Escape 101 in Danbury?
“I spend a lot of my time in NYC, and love their escape room scene. There wasn’t anything like this in Danbury or even this part of Connecticut.” explains Kris. The father of one of the kids who’s trying to solve the Widow’s Room with their friends interjects to explain how great it is to have somewhere that his daughter is excited to go. On top of having fun on a Saturday afternoon she is able to learn teamwork develop problem solving skills.
You've got a night off, why choose Escape 101?
Escape 101 is something entirely new to do in Danbury. The environment is friendly, welcoming, and we have an all-star staff that makes the whole escape experience fun and challenging. In 6 months from now we’re looking to be a big part of the Danbury community. We’re looking to establish Escape 101 as a great opportunity for team building and networking. We’re constantly investing in new technology, new games, and developing new escape rooms.
The Danbury Community and Escape 101
Kris was enthusiastic about the opportunity for Escape 101 to become part of the Danbury Community. I definitely agree with him that there is nothing else like it in Danbury or the surrounding Connecticut area. I’ll have to get a few friends together to do the head to head Escape Room soon!
