The escape rooms were designed, built and are owned by the newlywed couple, often referred to as the “Charming Family,” Justice Carey and Kendra Daniels, reigning Miss Fabulous Las Vegas and popular Las Vegas vocalist.

“I have always loved fairytales, and my husband and I are escape-room enthusiasts, so it is exciting to pair the two, and see our project come to life!” says Kendra Daniels, founder of Once Upon an Escape. “My family and I are excited to introduce this fairytale-themed escape room experience to the community!

Once Upon an Escape is also a fun, creative way to integrate corporate team building, as it enhances problem-solving skills, increases communication, and motivates team members. Escape rooms can help foster respectful dialogue, a creative exchange of ideas, and encourage active listening.


The five themed fairy tale escape rooms include:


Neverland:
With a dash of pixie dust, soar through the London sky! Sneak up on Captain Hook’s ship and venture into the seemingly enchanting world of Neverland. But once there, you’ll need to save Wendy from the Lost Boys’ unruly grip! The clock is ticking. Outwit the crocodile and make your escape from the place where you never have to grow up!

Once Upon a Time:
It seems as though Rumplestiltskin has stolen the fairytale artifacts. You must recover the artifacts and place them on the correct pedestals-if you are to escape the room in time. But beware-things are not always as they appear!

7 Dwarfs: The fairest one is in dire need! You must help the Seven Dwarfs undo the evil and bring back to life the fairest in the land! But be quick, before she’s gone forever!
Arabian Nights: In a far-off land, buried deep within a cave, lies a magic lamp capable of granting your every desire. But be warned! Once you have entered, attempting to leave without the lamp will result in your demise! Do you have what it takes to follow in the footsteps of the King of Thieves? Find the magic lamp and make your escape in time!

Rumplestiltskin:
Five Dollars-Five Minutes-Five Clues! Can you handle the POWER Room? Rumplestiltskin is his name. The mystery at hand is his game. Solve the clues within for your enchanted life to begin! Will you escape in time or end up entrapped by his rhyme?

The End.

I’m sure this month will sell out early.”

 

Every month Shunock gathers an eclectic cast of guests including stars from Hollywood, the Strip, musical acts, athletes and celebrity chefs for 90 minutes of chat, entertainment – and a lot of laughs. “Mondays Dark” partners with a different Las Vegas-based charity to raise money each month for that charity, between ticket sales and silent auction items.
