“Escape IT” picks up where the horror film franchise left off, leaving players to find a way through more than 20 rooms of terror before their luck runs out.
Based on the movies “IT” and “IT Chapter Two,” this multi-room fear fest ramps up the typical escape room experience with 20+ interactive rooms, state-of-the-art special FX, lighting, animatronics, and live actors in an immersive test of skill and critical thinking, all with a maniac clown in pursuit.
The concept sprang from a collaboration between Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment and Egan Escape Productions, and will be located in the heart of Sin City.
Participants will navigate iconic locations such as the infamous Neibolt House, the Losers’ Clubhouse, the Derry Canal Days Festival, and the sewers below Derry as they attempt to escape the clutches of Pennywise, the Dancing Clown.
“‘IT’ is one of our most iconic horror film franchises, and we cannot wait for fans to be able to come face-to-face with the infamous Pennywise and the town of Derry in a way they’ve never experienced before,” said Peter van Roden, senior vice president of Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment. “We’re thrilled to work with Egan Escape Productions as they are experts in the space, bringing complexity and attention to every detail to help bring our immersive horror experiences to the next level.”
“Escape IT” is located just off the Las Vegas Strip, and will include a full-scale “IT” themed shop with photo ops, exclusive merchandise, and carnival-style midway games.
“Having the opportunity to work with one of the most iconic and terrifying characters of all time has been a phenomenal venture,” said Jason Egan, owner of Egan Escape Productions. “It’s an honor to have Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment trust us with their brand, and to bring this beloved franchise to life here in the amazing city of Las Vegas.”
The experience will open in Fall, 2022 and tickets will go on sale at a later date. For more information, sign up for notices at EscapeIT.com.
