Fort Wayne Gets ‘Locked Up’ May 11

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Puzzle fans, rejoice—an upscale escape room experience is making its way into Fort Wayne. After having success across the state, Locked Up | Escape Room Experience will open its first Fort Wayne location on Friday, May 11. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is slated for 5 p.m. Friday at 6342 W. Jefferson Blvd.

Locked Up is an ultra-premium, upscale escape room experience that offers beautiful sofas, wingback chairs, crystal chandeliers, and amazing artwork displayed throughout each of their locations. Each event, similar to a live version of the board game Clue, lasts an hour. Once the game starts, groups of 6-12 guests search for clues throughout the game room. Guests then try to piece together the clues to escape the room within 60 minutes.

“When we began considering what design type and aesthetics we wanted to offer in our Locked Up brand, we knew the ability to offer an upscale feel coupled with a safe, luxurious environment was the top of our list,” said Antonio R. Parisi, founder of Locked Up. “The quality of the games within the facility are extremely crucial, but offering a safe atmosphere for events from corporate team-building outings to ‘ladies nights out’ is a top priority.”

Locked Up launched its first location in Mishawaka in October 2016. Since then, they have added locations in Bloomington and Indianapolis, as well as Grand Rapids, Mich. The Fort Wayne location will be the company’s fifth market, with the newest location owned by William and Christy Stose.

“We are excited to work with such an amazing community,” William Stose said. “We are very passionate about bringing a new upscale entertainment option to our city, and are looking forward to challenging Fort Wayne’s many bright minds of all ages!”

The community is invited to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony, scheduled for 5 p.m. on Friday, May 11 at 6342 W. Jefferson Blvd. in Fort Wayne.
