Along with many other traditions this season, haunted houses and escape rooms are a popular activity among many people. Although, lots of people need to go longer distances out of town because many popular escape rooms aren’t near our area. However, these problems are being resolved. Recently on Halloween, a couple opened up a new escape room in Kokomo.

Chris and Tabetha Hart created this great idea. They decided to open up a new, interesting escape room that doesn’t require many residents of Kokomo to travel outside of town. The escape room is called Stratagem Escape Rooms and is located at the former Twisted Darkness warehouse. The address of this location is 1024 S. Main Street. In an interview with Kokomo Tribune, the couple stated that the escape room has been a “great test” for their imaginations, and they’ve had a fun time putting it together as husband and wife.

Escape rooms are full of clues and riddles that a group of people need to solve in order to escape. They can have many different themes where some can be scarier than others. One of the things that makes the rooms even more exciting is the time limit. A clock displayed in the room tells how much time the group has left to solve all the clues and escape the room. These escape rooms really test everyone’s knowledge and ability to think outside the box. Stratagem Escape Rooms is a combination of three different escape rooms.

One of the rooms is called “The Lost Treasure” and is a room based on pirates. The couple made their own prop that looks like a big pirate ship for this room. Another room is called “Asylum” and is based on a therapy session at an asylum with an experimental doctor. The third room is called “Kidnapped” and is considered the most difficult room. This room involves the group escaping a scary experience of being kidnapped and handcuffed. Each room has different types of clues based on its theme. The Harts only have three rooms at the time, but they are hoping to expand to maybe eight or ten different escape rooms. Also, they are hoping to add a room that can be booked for parties.

Each room has a limit of one hour to escape, but everyone in the group works together to find all of the clues. Each group can hold up to eight people, and the cost for each person is $30. The hours for the escape rooms are 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. for Sunday through Thursday and 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. for Friday and Saturday.
