Brian Lacertosa, Denver Escape Room’s founder, first saw the potential in bringing an escape room to Colorado after a visit to New York in the summer of 2014. Although he did not escape, he was immediately intrigued by the idea of a completely immersive entertainment experience that required brainpower and teamwork. As a result, he visited numerous escape rooms across the U.S. and Canada. With the help of Tim Maxwell, they crafted a business plan. Brian has continued to try escape rooms all over the country: New York City, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Austin, Oklahoma City, Los Angeles, Vancouver, and beyond! His success rate is getting better (and so are his listening skills, according to his wife) as he continues to try new rooms everywhere he travels.
Fast forward about a year and the Denver Escape Room became a huge success. We were awarded the Rookie Business of the Year and People’s Choice Award from the city of Northglenn in 2015. The Corporate Team Building program is also going places that we never dreamed of. It is hard to believe the evolution of Denver Escape Room, for which we would like to say a huge thank you to both our staff and the public. The games have evolved, the immersion factor has skyrocketed, and the puzzles have grown to be a lot more fun and challenging. We’ve also been able to expand! We have locations in Bakersfield and Fresno, California; Bend, Oregon; and two in Phoenix, Arizona. And we’re on the search for more!
From everyone here at Denver Escape Room (and all of our locations) we would like to say THANK YOU!
