Contraption Escape Rooms in Columbia Missouri is one of our two new escape room locations. We are located in the Columbia Mall which is not far from the Mizzou campus and close to Highway 70. Very exciting changes have been happening at this location and lots more are scheduled to come. There are currently four imaginative escape rooms. We have three traditional 60 minute rooms and as an experiment, we recently opened a 30 minute puzzle room for your enjoyment. It is called Immunity quest. It currently has a success rate of 55%.

 

We have a lot of changes coming for fall 2022 and even bigger changes coming in 2023. We will have a total of seven rooms when finished. Keeping with the Contraption philosophy of “you don’t pick locks at Contraptions”, means any puzzle in an existing room that has a lock will eventually be changed. Takes a lot of time to design and build these rooms. Please be patient and get excited with us for what’s to come!

 

In the meantime… Get out of the house, get off your couch, call your friends and come play a game!

Slaycation

You stumble across a "Killer" deal on a vacation rental home nestled deep in the mountains. Quaint, isolated, and iviting, the cabin sounds idyllic. You waiste no time booking the place as thoughts of s'mores and campfires tempt you to make the leap. But, upon arrival, something just isn't right. The property manager, Jay, seems hostile and his menacing note to you and your family forces you to realize your lives may just be in grave danger. But, fortunately, you are not alone.


Time is ticking. Do you have what it takes to work together or will you meet the same grisley end as the previous renters?
