Solutions Adds Food and Drink to the Escape Room Experience

Tina and Vic Ronder tried to escape — but they just got pulled deeper into the escape-room experience.

The mission: invest $1 million into a Five Points escape room that combines seven different puzzle rooms with a cheese-oriented restaurant.

Vanwest Partners shelled out $3 million for the nearly 102-year-old spot at 2200 California Street last May. The Denver-based developer is hoping the location will be the latest draw in the rapidly changing Five Points area.
