About Tactical Escape 101

Tactical Escape 101 is a locally owned, operated and designed escape room brand created by Justin and Jennifer Fonfara and their family in hopes to bring quality entertainment to Wisconsin where they live. The escape industry seemed a perfect compliment to Jen’s MBA in Human Resources and with both owners coming from a hospitality background reviews prove that the choice was right! Escape rooms offer a fun atmosphere and a bonding experience for friend groups, family and work groups. If you’re tired of the same-old-same-old, and you want to experience something different, come check us out. Can you escape before the timer hits 00:00! Private bookings are available but not required. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED in most locations and definitely recommended in this new industry to lock in the time you wish to visit.

The History of Escape Rooms

Real-life escape room games are a type of mental and physical adventure game in which people are locked in a room with other participants and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit. Some games include sub-plots and others contain multiple challenges for the group to solve/complete to gain clues or help. Though many think that escape originated in Silicon Valley, “Escape the room” games have been popular in Asia and Europe for many years. The first US escape room was in Seattle in 2012 and our escape room brand was one of the first 50 in the US! (Right here in northern Wisconsin!) You can enjoy the same experience as the big cities, right here in your own neighborhood! Our games are based on “escape the room” games in which the player is “locked” inside a room and must explore and use parts his or her surroundings in order to escape. There are many of these games that come as online as well. Players must be observant and use their critical thinking skills to escape the room. Playing live wakes the brain so it is recommended to make dinner reservations at one of our wonderful local restaurants in the area AFTER you adventure so you can discuss your adventure and share your enthusiasm!
