The Escape IT escape room experience has opened in Las Vegas! Inspired by Stephen King’s IT and its film adaptations
Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment and Egan Escape Productions have teamed up to create the escape room experience Escape IT in Las Vegas – an escape room experience that is now officially open to the public!
Here’s the information on Escape IT, which was inspired by the Stephen King novel IT and its big screen adaptations: Located in the heart of Sin City off Symphony Parkway and Martin Luther King Blvd., and spanning more than 30,000 square feet, Escape IT is a revolutionary new take on the traditional escape room experience, offering fans two multi-room escape adventures that bring to life “IT,” the highest grossing horror film of all time, and its blockbuster sequel, “IT Chapter Two” both from New Line Cinema. This unparalleled attraction includes more than 20 interactive rooms, state-of-the-art special FX, lighting, animatronics and live actors to create a fully immersive and terrifying experience.
Escape IT Chapter One is currently open, and the IT Chapter Two experience will open later in 2023.
More information: This thrilling experience features scenes from the first film, with the players immediately thrown in to aid in the search for the missing children of Derry. There’s no turning back as guests put their skills and critical thinking to the test, navigating some of the films’ most iconic locations including the infamous Neibolt House, Quality Meats, the “Three Doors” room, the Clown Funeral Room and even the sewer tunnels below Derry, all while trying to escape the clutches of Pennywise the Dancing Clown.
A press release notes that Escape IT also includes carnival-styled midway games and a full-scale IT-themed retail store, complete with photo ops and exclusive custom merchandise. Private VIP Experience tickets, packages for birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties and team building are also available.
Egan Escape Productions owner Jason Egan provided the following statement: “It’s been such an exciting venture to work with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment and having the opportunity to bring some of their iconic characters to life in an immersive experience here in Las Vegas. We are passionate about creating the most creative and interactive experiences with this being the most terrifying one yet as Pennywise the dancing clown welcomes you into the town of Derry.“
Escape IT is open from 4 to 11pm on Thursdays and Sunday, and from 2pm to Midnight on Friday and Saturday. Thursday and Friday tickets start at $54.99. Saturday and Sunday tickets start at $59.99.
