MANHATTAN, KAN. - A new form of entertainment will open in Downtown Manhattan, Kansas in mid to late September. Locked Manhattan, an immersive escape room adventure company will open its doors next month bringing with it a brand of entertainment unlike anything else in Manhattan or the surrounding area. A company managed by two local brothers, Locked Manhattan is an attraction that puts game players in a locked room filled with puzzles that will eventually lead to the players escape. 

Escape rooms began in Japan approximately eight years ago and were based on computer games which offered players problem solving opportunities to exit a simulated room. Locked Manhattan is a live and immersive problem solving game which uses logic adrenaline to progress through a story. The Manhattan location will open with one room, "The Witching Hour" and add additional rooms in the following months. These additional rooms are slated to be "Honor Among Theives" and "The Dinner Party." The business says that they will cycle through rooms giving players a fresh experience each time they return.

"We aren't just in the business of creating puzzle rooms. We have taken great care in creating a story that we move forward by introducing puzzles to our players. It isn't just a game, you're living the adventure" says the pair of owners and operators. 

Locked Manhattan is the first escape room adventure to open in Manhattan and is one of only a few in the Midwest. The Manhattan location is focused on providing an unforgettable adventure for all of their players. They state that their escape rooms are intricately designed through countless hours of research and planning and promise players a challenging, fun, and unique form of entertainment in beautiful Downtown Manhattan. 

Locked Manhattan places small groups in a puzzle filled room for one hour to investigate, piece together clues, and solve puzzles in order to progress through a story and find a way out of the room. They offer the adventure to groups of up to six people per room, however, the escape room company suggests groups of at least four people. Prices for the one-hour experience are listed as $23.00 per person and scheduling an adventure can only be done on the Locked Manhattan website. If you have questions about escape room adventures or wish to book a Locked Manhattan room visit and click "Book Now."
