Escape rooms are huge nationwide and really gaining traction with families and companies in the Midwest.

We currently have the following escape rooms in Southwest Michigan:

  • Clock N Lock Escape Rooms - Downtown Kalamazoo
  • The Final Clue - Downtown Kalamazoo
  • Escapology - Portage
  • BreakEscape - Battle Creek (closed for remodeling according to their website)

We should see the Cereal City Escape open in the Lakeview Square Mall in Mid January.  This will be the first escape room opening in an indoor mall in our area as we're seeing the identity of the mall change according to the Battle Creek Enquirer,

The mall will be losing its last department store in February, but stores like Bath & Body Works and Barnes & Noble remain, and other, more unconventional, businesses are starting to fill up spots.

Battleground Indoor Action Sports, an indoor skate park that opened in the mall in December 2017, maintains high traffic. Come January, Cereal City Escape will be joining it on the mall's list of entertainment options.

"The Syndicate's Revenge - A Mafia Experience" will be the first experience according to the Cereal City Escape facebook page.
