Statement from
417 Escape Artist

417 Escape Artist is committed to the safety, health, and well being of its customers and staff. As such, we are complying with the local mandate per the city of Springfield to suspend operations at our Springfield location beginning on March 18th and continuing until April 1st.

We will not be booking any of our escape rooms until such a time that it has been deemed safe by our local health departments. We want to make sure it is safe for us to get together again for some escape room fun. If you have a room booked during this time, we will be contacting you shortly to discuss rebooking or your refund options. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us at (417) 887-8816 or email us at escape@417EscapeArtist.com and we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.

It is regrettable to do this, but we hope that our efforts along with others in the community will help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus so we can get back to normal sooner rather than later. We hope that you will be safe and healthy during this time while remembering to be kind and courteous to your neighbors. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
