Escape 605 opens at The Empire Mall next week

By Jodi Schwan

Escape 605 will open its second location in Sioux Falls in the coming week at The Empire Mall.

“It came together really fast,” co-owner Amy Stockberger said.

The 4,000-square-foot space was converted into five adventures in about a month. It’s next to Pink by Victoria’s Secret.

“Bookings are going really well, and we really haven’t promoted it much yet,” Stockberger said.

Business also has picked up significantly at the original location at 3718 S. Westport Ave. as word has gotten out about the mall location, she added.

There’s expansion happening there, too, with a fourth room, a bar and a conference room scheduled to open in mid-July.

The mall location’s room themes include Area 51, DaVinci, Zombie Uprising, a kids’ Christmas-themed room with an attached area for parties, and Assassins, which is two rooms where teams compete against each other.

“That room is a lot about strategy and the wall is only 9 foot, so they can hear each other and try to hurt or help each other, however they want to do it,” Stockberger said.


Escape 605 will have the same hours for the most part as The Empire Mall but might stay open later some nights and weekends.
