In 2016, Matt Chasten and Donnie Noland started hatching a plan to take their extensive experience in the board and card gaming industry and create something new and special — EscapePoint.
With Matt’s creative and tech skills, plus Donnie’s business and construction experience, EscapePoint was able to open in April 2017 featuring three rooms created from scratch.
When Donnie came across an opportunity he couldn’t pass up, Matt looked to the brotherhood of the Murfreesboro escape game scene and reached out to Jared Dauenhauer & Lee Wilson at Murfreesboro Escape Rooms to keep the creative juices flowing and form a fresh partnership for the future of EscapePoint.
We cannot wait to see what the future holds.
See the rooms
We are all about the rooms and all about a great customer experience at EscapePoint. We live and breathe escape rooms and we are confident that once you experience one EscapePoint room, you won’t stop until you’ve played them all.
We would love for you to see the rooms, play the rooms, and ask any questions you might have about the rooms.
