  2. About Escape The Place

Founded in 2015 by Captain C.J. Thomson (U.S. Air Force), Escape the Place was the first escape room establishment in Colorado Springs and continues to distinguish itself with 5 distinct and challenging escape scenarios.

Escape the Place seeks to entertain and confound even the most gifted and persistent problem solvers. We have game rooms with high success rates (60-70% solved) and rooms with a high degree of difficulty (3-4% success rate), and several in between. Even if you don’t think you are very good at solving riddles or puzzles, you will enjoy the thrill and entertainment of Escape the Place.

Our Gamemasters, Technical Imagineers, and Creative Puzzle People all have a desire to serve, thrill, and entertain you. If you’re looking for a good time, a challenge, and opportunity to promote team building, book your escape room now!



Lead Facilitator

Anthony is one of our experienced facilitators. Outside of running escape rooms, you might know him as either a physicist or a programmer, who can mostly be found working an equation or writing a code for either a video game or a completely random program. According to the laws of quantum mechanics, it is quite difficult to be certain what he’s doing, but one thing that is certain is Anthony is a very bright and helpful guy, making him a wonderful person to run your next escape room! Perhaps he could be the person to run your room!
