FISHERS, IN – Can you get out? The Escape Room is expanding into the Fishers’ Nickel Plate District. The latest in interactive attractions will bring six, challenging rooms to The Edge on the corner of Lantern Road and 116th Street. The new adventure is set to open in early fall.
“The Escape Room is a unique addition to the Nickel Plate District,” said Mayor Scott Fadness. “The revitalization of the area was done to ensure our residents and visitors have a place to live, work and play in our community. It’s very exciting to see this vision come to life, and welcome the Escape Room to Fishers.”
The Escape Room Fishers plans to house six different adventure challenges and the Escape Lounge, serving local Indiana beer and wine, on the second and third floors of The Edge. The interactive game is designed for everyone. Participants are locked in a themed room with 60 minutes to find clues, solve puzzles, and discover keys and combinations to escape the room before time is up.
“This location will offer new rooms for fans and expanded hospitality options for events and corporate groups,” said Jennifer Harbron, part owner and Director of Event Planning for The Escape Room. “We will be able to accommodate larger groups than ever with bigger rooms and two distinct lounges that can service more than one group at a time.”
The Escape Room will lease more than 6,000 square feet in The Edge, and plans to hire more than 20 new employees from management to hourly positions. The newest addition to the Nickel Plate District joins other tenants of The Edge including, Community Health Network, The Well, The Borrowed Boutique and Progressive Eye Care.
“We are thrilled to add the Escape Room to the list of tenants at the Edge,” said Scott Baldwin, Executive Vice President and Owner of Envoy, Inc. “It is important for our projects to fit the vision of the communities we serve and to attract innovative businesses and talent to the area.”
“We have a few surprises in store for this location,” said Dan Chillemi, part owner and Director of Charitable Relations with The Escape Room. “As soon as we saw the space in The Edge, we knew there was an opportunity to take the concept to the next level. There will be something new to explore for first-time visitors and returning fans alike.
