Coming This Holiday Season to Denver: A Christmas Story Escape

Christmas Story Escape Room

You can tell Christmas is on its way by the onslaught of holiday season Hallmark movies on TV. But one Christmas movie rises to the top of the list: The 1983 film, A Christmas Story, tells the story of a young boy named Ralphie Parker who is willing to do everything in his power to get his precious Red Ryder BB gun on Christmas morning. With letters to Santa, a class report, and ongoing wishes to his parents, it seems as though nothing was going to stop him from making his wish come true. As you watch Ralphie navigate the week before Christmas, you might have wondered what you would have done differently. Coming soon to EscapeWorks Denver, you will be able to immerse yourself and your family or friends into the movie itself and let the screen become a tangible scene!

From the TV to Tangible Reality 

The film, based on Jean Shepherd’s book In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash, is now a family-friendly escape room, geared for clean fun and holiday festivities. Intended for your group to create lasting memories, this room will make you feel as though you lived among the 1940s station radio and Ovaltine days. 

Group Strategies

With only an hour to complete the room, you and your team will be racing against the clock to complete over a dozen puzzles. For the best experience, we recommend your groups form as teams of four to six to enjoy this immersive holiday experience. For larger groups, contact our office at info@escapeworksdenver.com. Consider this seasonal Christmas story Escape a great company party idea that your employees will laugh about and cherish for years to come as they strategize together in this immersive team-building exercise

Make It a Movie Night

To prepare for the escape room, gather with your team during an extended lunch break to watch the film and take notes about what you perceive could potentially help you find hidden clues and puzzles in the room as the clock winds down. Or before coming with your family, watch A Christmas Story the night before your scheduled escape room and at the very least, you will have a wonderful evening filled with laughter and storytelling. This movie always provides at least one favorite scene whether it’s one of the many escapades Ralphie experiences in his desperate attempts to plea for his dream Christmas present or the ceremonial beheading of the Christmas duck at the Chinese restaurant.

The Reviews

  • review rating 5  We had a blast! We originally did the Casino Heist, however, there were some complications with the room. Dice and Emilia provided us with wonderful customer service and had us do Outbreak instead. We appreciated how much they cared about experience and we ended up having a great time. Highly recommend if you’re in the downtown Denver area and looking for some fun!

    review rating 5  Emilia hooked it up! Super fun chatting with her and when we were in the escape room she gave us the perfect amount of clues without making it too easy or too hard. The flower shop is amazing, the puzzles and technology were engaging and the prohibition theme was fun to act out. I heard we took the best picture ever? :)

  • review rating 5  Emilia was fun, helpful and friendly. My husband and I were joined by a family to attempt an escape out of the Egyptian Tomb and unfortunately failed {if only we had 2 more minutes and we would have escaped!} but had a fun time and would definitely recommend!

    review rating 5  We did the Outbreak escape room and it was so much fun!! The room was very interactive and detailed and although the puzzles were tricky we got so close to finishing the room. Taylor was a great game master throughout the process especially since it was our first escape room. We will definitely do more! They also provide safe places for personal belongings.

    review rating 5  The most well organized escape room I've been to! There are locked places for belongings as well as a unique hint system that is better than every other room I've been to. Outbreak is a very well thought out and designed room that eloquently railroads the players. Nearly got out too if it wasn't for that pesky red button!

  • review rating 5  My group and I did the Outbreak puzzle and it was super fun, challenging, and exciting. To top it off, Amelia? Emilia? o my goodness forgot her name, but she was super funny and full of energy, totally added to the experience. Will for sure come back and try the other rooms.

    review rating 5  “You’ll shoot your eye out!” We did A Christmas Story and it was SO fun- so many layers, different types of puzzles, challenging but never got totally stuck. Selena was a great guide, clearly super knowledgeable about the room, gave great hints and was very witty, completely made the experience for us.

  • review rating 5  Troy and Tommy Bohan with my son Paul Garcia-Lance and myself had the best of times trying to get out of the Egyptian tomb. We were seconds away but fell short of solving the mystery and we’re buried alive. Thank you so much for an enjoyable evening and a special shout out to Taylor and Sierra who moderated our adventure ! We have to return for our group picture and another great adventure!

  • review rating 5  I can not say enough about this place! I had the best night of my life here. The staff worked tirelessly with my now fiance to help him plan the best proposal ever. They went above and beyond to create a night every girl dreams about. Selena, Chloe, and Taylor made sure every detail was perfect. I'll continue to recommend Escape Works to every person I know trying to make memories they wont forget. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. By far, the best escape room in town! You guys are amazing!!!!

    review rating 5  Did the "Beyond the Flower Shop" room with a group of six. The room was well thought out and very enjoyable. Challenging, but perfect for a group of beginners. Alisha working the front desk was amazing at introducing us to the storyline and walking us through how to do the game. She provided help at perfect times and we wouldn't have made it through without her. Will definitely be coming back with my group because of her!

  • review rating 5  My group almost missed the entrance at first which you have to buzz into, but the staff were so helpful! Selena and Matt greeted us, had us sign waivers, and gave a few tips quickly so that we had as much time as possible! They were great at giving us helpful and creative hints throughout. We made it out with almost 10 minutes to spare! Some of us had been to an escape room before and others hadn't, but the outbreak room was just right for us! Thanks so much for a great time!
