If you like to solve puzzles, you are in for a treat at the new Escape Rooms Jamestown, relocated to 100 E. Second St. at the corner of Second St. and Pine St. “Shocked and disheartened was how I felt when I knew I had to leave our Third St. location,” said Cathy Johnner, owner of Escape Rooms Jamestown. “COVID-19 shut us down on March 15 and I couldn’t find a way to keep the space without going into the red. Realtor Taylor Scott had a couple spots for me to look at and five seconds after seeing the new space, I knew I found the perfect place to relocate.”
The Escape Rooms Jamestown are located in the basement at 100 E. Second St. The four rooms are smaller, but there are larger rooms for other activities. There will be a vintage arcade room with arcade games from the 1950s through the 1970s. The other large space will be good for socially distanced events such as paint nights and other activities.
“The build out has been a challenge, but the landlord has been very helpful and let us use space in the building to store the room contents while we where building. The basement had an old floor safe in it and we have incorporated that into our new room, ‘Arthur Chrystal’s Last Will and Testament’ where players search for his will and whomever finds it, inherits everything,” said Ms. Johnner.
The corner is hopping this Labor day week with Studio D’s food wagon, ice cream at the Sprinkle Cone, and interesting shopping at the Biodome. Throw an escape in there too!
The pandemic guidelines limit four players to a room. The escapes are 45 minutes long. The cost is usually $25 per person, but for the opening week from September 2nd to the 9 th , the cost will be $15 per person. The hours are noon to 6 PM every day. Walk-ins are welcome and reservations can be made on the Facebook page, @escaperoomsJamestown, or the website, www.escaperoomsjamestown.com.
