Put your thinking caps on and work together to plan your escape at Murfreesboro's newest adventure! EscapePoint is now open at 855 West College St., Ste. M, Murfreesboro. It's the brainchild of Donnie Noland with his wife and business partner. This is the first-ever location for EscapePoint and Noland and his team plan to expand in the future, too. Along with new locations in their minds, the EscapePoint team plans to add even more rooms to their current location. "We started this business with aggressive growth in mind," says Noland. "We want to bring new room concepts and themes to the industry, placing a lot of value into original stories and puzzles so we can deliver entirely unique experiences with every room."

Why Only One Room?

You may wonder why there's only one room available at the moment. Noland shares his reason behind that decision. "Our original plan had us opening with four rooms, and though we theoretically could have hit that goal, we were afraid we would be sacrificing quality for quantity," says Noland. "So we did what we felt was the right thing and focused all our efforts on one room (Incubation)." He goes on to say that the additional rooms are not far behind. They've already planned the themes for those rooms and intend to open them one at a time. EscapePoint plans to host a total of four rooms at completion by the end of the summer within their more than 4,000 square feet. "Our second room (The White Room) is starting beta testing this week and will be open shortly, and we hope to open room three (Testament) early June, and room four (Monster) early July," he adds. By the end of all the development, they plan to have at least seven to eight rooms available.

Who Can Play?

Ages 18 and younger need a legal guardian present to sign the waiver. And, while they recommend the ages be 13 and older, they've allowed some younger players at times. "We've had younger players who have been surprisingly successful within our rooms, but we require anyone under that age to be accompanied by a parent or guardian," adds Noland. Cost is $28 per person. Hours are Mon - Thu 3 - 10 p.m., Fri 3 p.m. - 12 a.m., Sat 10 a.m. - 12 a.m., Sun 2 - 9 p.m. Call 615-410-3077 or visit theescapepoint.com.
