The colleges we’ve traveled to from Chicago have had us escaping with sororities and fraternities (a competition!), teambuilding with administration, new student orientation, and educational groups for future leaders and entrepreneurs. Our escapes are challenging for the students, and encourage them to work together, problem solve, and communicate!
I’ve taken the mobile escape room to many colleges and universities in the midwest. One of the most recent was in Iowa, and I enjoyed a beautiful, nostalgic drive. I attended the University of Iowa for college and drove I-80 every time there was a break.
Central College, in Pella, Iowa had us come out for a night of 15 minute escape rooms for the students as a mid semester night of fun. I met the Campus Activities Board student leader, Elizabeth, who helped Mobile Room Escape (MRE) plan the night. She lit up when I arrived, and kept asking me if there was anything she could do to help. That’s Iowa nice, for ya. She ended up doing the escape two times herself during the night! All the groups had a great time, and by the end of the night, Elizabeth said “Oh we are definitely having you come back next semester!”
The next morning, before I had to leave, she offered to take me on a tour of Pella. We ate breakfast at a local cafe, I admired the windmills around town, and spent too much at their local bakery. My heart warmed from the familiar Iowa kindness that I knew all through my college years. Just before I set out on the road again, Elizabeth snapped a picture for me in front of their college sign. I can’t wait to go back to Pella for our next Escape Room Adventure! You could be our next adventure-Contact us today for details.
