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.

Book an Escape Room

Regardless of your preparation tactics, we guarantee your enjoyment and a challenge with this escape room. In addition to our very own “A Christmas Story Escape” live escape room, we also offer a wide selection of themed escape rooms ranging in different intensity levels. Our current rooms include a speakeasy, Egyptian tomb, virus outbreak, and a Casino heist in case you have more than just the Christmas spirit during this time of year.

The Reviews

  • review rating 5  We came here for my birthday with a group of 11. We did the flower shop escape room and had a wonderful time. The clues were great and challenging! Emilia was a wonderful host and it was a pleasure having her lead our group. We didn't escape, but had a great time. We were 1 clue away! I would definitely like to try another room at this location. It was creative and challen, but not impossible. Thanks for a great night!

    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!

    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  Such a fun experience. I had never been in an escape room before and we went with a group that we didn’t know. It was so fun to get to work with strangers as a team to accomplish a common goal. Challenging room but so fun to do, and Taylor and Matt were so helpful at giving clues just when we needed them. Would definitely go back again!

    review rating 5  We were a group of very difficult customers: due to the Parade of Lights, insane traffic and the fact that our party carpooled in 3 different vehicles, our arrival and check-in was way beyond the norm. I emphasize this because, despite these difficult circumstances, EscapeWorks staff was super accommodating, helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to make sure we still had fun and got the most out of the experience. I love the fact that this business has seasonal rooms that give customers good reason to come back more than a few times, keeping the experience fresh and new, year round. I loved the room my group completed and I really want to come back and try other rooms that they have.

  • review rating 5  Super fun night at EscapeWorks Denver in The Christmas Story room. Lot's of great details from the movie make this a really fun puzzle to solve! Chloe did a very nice job providing the set-up instructions and threw out just enough clues to keep us on track. Great holiday fun!

    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  Very considerate and nice staff and a great time! My group was placed with two other people randomly and they kind of took over the whole puzzle. The employees pulled us aside to let us know what they saw and they wanted to make sure we had a great experience of our own so they gave us a coupon to come back another time. They were really helpful from beginning to end and it was super fun!

  • review rating 5  This was incredible. We did the Casino room and we are now going to go back and do more. What a great thing to do on any night of the week. It was challenging, fun, and Chloe was the best. Everyone needs to try this. It’s also something that is good for your brains so it’s like working out but for the mind. We will be booking more of these and will do them all after this experience.

    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  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  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  My 13 yr. old son wanted to do this and I’m so glad we did. This was a fun activity that the whole family participated in with no electronics involved. Our teamwork and efforts (plus a lot of help from Devon and Taylor) helped to solve the puzzle and get us out of the room. Devon and Taylor were wonderful hosts and explained everything perfectly. We’ll definitely return for another family adventure.

    review rating 5  Went as a group for a team building exercise and did the Outbreak room. The puzzles were challenging and complex but we did manage to escape! It was a great time and a really immersive experience. Thanks to Sierra for sending us hints that were helpful enough to get us unstuck but didn't just give away the game.Overall a really great experience!

  • review rating 5  Did the Egyptian Tomb as a family, youngest being 12. Super fun, Juan was great with hints when we were spinning our tires. Our daughter is already asking when we can do another! FYI, one of our group was in a walking boot with somewhat limited mobility, it wasn’t an issue in this room. Will definitely be back.
