Join Kristen Ellis and Lisa Yzaguirre, the owners of Enter Exit Escape, for their Sept. 20 Game Night, where everyone in the community is welcome to play board games and enjoy delicious drinks and snacks.

Enter Exit Escape offers three original games, such as Escape Room 101: Science Lab, Professor E’s Mummy Mystery, and Special Ops: Dirty Money.


This year, they are celebrating their first anniversary and they are proud to say that they have challenged and entertained over 3,000 people.

Enter Exit Escape is also offering the Game Nights on the third Thursday of every month. According to Ellis, they did a couple of game nights in the past months and people enjoyed them so much that they decided to continue the tradition.

Ellis explained that the game nights are open to everyone, kids and adults. The adults are welcome to join the kids for the board games.

She also suggests that the adults drop off their younger kids at the Young Play, located at 1702 Back Acre Circle, Mount Airy, so they can enjoy the board games.

Ellis stated that they will have a great variety of games available at each game night. Some of the games they will offer are Settlers of Catan, Battleship, Oshi, Buzz Word, Sequence and also card games.

South Carroll: Farmers market in Sykesville promotes healthy lifestyle

Sykesville is currently celebrating their Farmers Market with great local produces and activities for all so that everyone in the community can enjoy living a healthy life.

“Whether you prefer strategy games, word games, or visual games, or you like shorter or longer games, or you prefer one-on-one or large group games, we've got you covered!” stated Ellis. “We encourage folks to bring their favorite games to share with others. We love learning new ones!”

Also, Ellis emphasized that she and Yzaguirre have always been fans of board games and that is why they decided to open the escape game business.

“We grew up playing them in our homes, and brought up our own families surrounded by regular family game nights, and even getaway game weekends,” stated Ellis.

Ellis and Yzaguirre want to provide that same opportunity to the families in Carroll County by having the game nights at the Enter Exit Escape, “… providing an opportunity for families and friends to come together for a challenge that involves an intricate web of puzzles, strategy, and story-based information that must be worked through to complete a themed mission,” stated Ellis.

Admission to the Game Nights are $5 per person, which includes light snacks, drinks, and board games, and they start at 5:30 p.m. and ends at 7:30 p.m.
