All new and re-mixed for the Holidays is “Christmas at Grandma’s House 2022” opens December 1, 2022.

 

Contraption escape rooms in Saint Charles Missouri is one of our two new escape room locations. We are located close to old town Saint Charles and not far from Highway 70.

 

Very exciting changes have been happening at this location and lots more are scheduled to come this fall of 2022 and early 2023. There are currently 7 available escape room games. Two of the rooms are identical and can be used for tournament play. VR – virtual reality is coming soon! We are working on it now. Plus we are installing a laser maze puzzle room for all you flexible people out there. All of the rooms are getting revamped or replaced and upgraded! Stay tuned and keep checking out the website for what’s coming and what’s new! When we are finished we will have 10 attractions available! Woo hoo!!!

 

Keeping with the Contraption philosophy of “you don’t pick locks at Contraptions”, means any puzzle in an existing room that has a pad lock will eventually be changed. We prefer puzzles with motion. 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! We are open!

Nuked

"We were told it was safe! The nuclear plant was going to help out the town."


When a fire erupted in the break room, all we heard was a huge explosion and then everything went dark. Without the power to the plant, it'll overheat and blow causing millions to be exposed to the radiation. You are part of the disaster team, called to safeguard us all. We know the plant can only go 60 minutes without power, we must hurry! Find the control panel, turn on the generators, and open the cooling valves to neutralize the reactor before we have a nuclear meltdown!
