Crisis Rooms - Frankfort Chamber Business Spotlight May 2017

As a proud member of the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce, and co-owner of CMP Tactical Laser Tag, we are excited to introduce our newest adventure, Crisis Rooms.

Crisis Rooms is the perfect location for family bonding, date night, good times with friends, or team building for corporate outings. Each themed room requires its participants to work together to solve puzzles and riddles, and discover hidden secrets.

People of all ages are challenged to collaborate with their group to “escape” the room within the allotted hour. Up to three clues are given when requested by the participants to prevent frustration from occurring, and to allow successful escapes.

Currently, there are three themed rooms operating. “Apartment #10B” is the home of a suspected serial killer and the participants must locate evidence to catch the killer. “Interrogation” requires participants to internally investigate the FBI for a cover-up. In “Shadow of a Doubt,” players are sent to execute a search warrant for a corrupt attorney. This room can be played as an individual room, or as a challenge room. Two identical rooms have been designed for teams of 4 to 6 to play against each other and “escape” with the best time.

Coming soon are “Infected” and “Silo.” Please review the objectives of these rooms at crisisrooms.com.
We also are in the process of constructing our corporate/banquet room to host large group meetings and parties.

Crisis Room is located at 20861 S. LaGrange Rd., in Frankfort Town Center. For more information, contact Don Bragiel, thedon@crisisrooms.com or 708-466-8033.
