About us

SoCo Escape Room entertains the adventurous by locking them in rooms and daring them to escape. Our meticulous designs provide the perfect combination of puzzles, narrative, and atmosphere. Our goal is for customers to be challenged by fascinating puzzles, enraptured by authentic narratives, and transported by immersive atmospheres.  SoCo Escape Room is locally owned and operated and dedicated to being an active member of the Pueblo community.

What is an escape room?

An escape room is a live, physical, interactive, and immersive puzzle experience in which participants are locked into a room and must work as a team to solve a series of puzzles designed around a specific theme and all leading to the final solution, which is to unlock the door and escape the room within a set time limit.

We are prioritizing varied skillsets

As a growing local business we are constantly in the process of getting better for our customers and our team members.
