     The Southeast Kentucky Chamber of Commerce is pleased to  welcome Epic Escape Games Pikeville to the area. Epic Escape Games opened in downtown Pikeville on January 13, 2017. 
     Epic Escape Games Pikeville is a live escape challenge where teams are locked inside a game room. They are given 60 minutes to find clues, solve logic puzzles, and escape the room before time runs out. Owner, Harriet Blanton states, “Epic Escape provides entertainment and fun for families and friends, as well as team-building opportunities for corporate events”.
     The Pikeville location currently has 3 different games room (each at a different level of difficulty): The Deep, Buried Alive, and The Feud. In The Deep, you and your team will be attempting to detonate a nuclear warhead to seal the tear in the Mariana’s Trench. The difficulty level is moderate with a 50% successful escape rate. Buried Alive centers around the Pikeville legend of Octavia. Teams are exploring a cursed mansion and only have one hour to “reverse the curse or suffer the fate of being buried alive”. This room’s difficulty level is very challenging with a 17% successful escape rate. The Feud follows the story of the Hatfields and McCoys. Teams must produce a family heir loom for each family before they burn down your cabin. The Feud is challenging with a 37% successful escape rate.
       Blanton saw the need for a new form of entertainment in this region, “I have a desire to contribute to the revitalization of this town”. She believed that Pikeville’s progressive outlook and the size of the surrounding county created a perfect blend to introduce this new business. Blanton’s family has owned the building for years, and its central location in downtown Pikeville made it a great choice for an Epic Escape Game. Epic Escape Game Pikeville is located at 225 2nd Street, Suite 1, Pikeville, KY 41501. It is open Thursday through Monday from 1pm to 9pm. They are closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
