Our Story

We did our first escape room back in the summer of ’16 while visiting friends in Florida, instantly becoming addicted to this unique, fast-paced, brain-teasing interactive game. There’s something about getting your adrenaline pumping as the clock ticks closer to zero. After doing a few more rooms and a business plan in place, the decision to take the plunge into the very exciting world of escape rooms was made.

Now came the search for the perfect location. We wanted to open up in our local community to provide a new kind of entertainment in the area without having to travel to Pittsburgh. The perfect building practically found us, a 2400 sq. ft. building just outside of Slippery Rock with plenty of parking to accommodate larger groups and room to grow. Thirty days after signing the lease, the first escape room was designed, constructed, and open for business. We can’t thank our family and friends enough for all the help in opening the first escape room in Butler County.

The first escape room built (Zombie Apocalypse) was very “1st . Generation”, meaning no electronic props installed at all, but the game and puzzle flow was very good and people seemed to really enjoy it. The second room made its debut 3 months later. Now, a little over 2 years later, we are proud to offer 3 themed escape rooms and have just recently added Axe Throwing to our offerings. Our team designs and constructs all games in-house, which is the best part of the job.

What’s Next?

If you’ve had the opportunity to do our newest room “Casino Heist”, then you would have noticed big changes in the layout of the room from the actual types of props to the clue system we offer. We’ve invested in new software that actually helps to run the room to create a smoother, more immersive feel to the whole experience. A well-balanced variety of locks and electronic props/puzzles are used to create a more challenging experience.

We have invested a lot of time and money into furthering our knowledge and watching industry trends so that Mystery Mayhem Escapes can offer a great experience every time you come to play. We pride ourselves on upping-our-game with each new escape room created and welcome the challenge of continuing to serve Slippery Rock and the surrounding communities.

What is an Escape Room?

An escape room is a real-life adventure game. Whether you escape or solve the mission is up to you and your team. To be successful, find the hidden clues and solve complex puzzles within the room. You’ll have to hurry, so put the phone down for 60 minutes; the clock starts ticking down the moment you enter the escape room. Rely on your wits, creativity and communication skills to get the most out of your escape room experience. Escape rooms are perfect for corporate team-building, fun with family and friends, date night, bachelor(ette) parties, and any other excuse you can think of. Each escape room has its own theme, mission and story behind it. You will get to choose which adventure you want to experience. Even if you don’t make it out of the room, you are sure to create lasting memories from your experience.
