If you've ever wanted to escape Murfreesboro, here's your chance as Locked Murfreesboro prepares for a massive city-wide game.

“We are taking our successful escape game outside, and all over Murfreesboro,” said Lucas Johnson, owner of Locked Games.

Locked Murfreesboro will happen from 2-5 p.m. April 29.

After purchasing tickets online at escapemurfreesboro.com, teams will register at Locked Murfreesboro and receive clues to solve a series of puzzles and perform physical tasks.

Throughout the event, players will be challenged to find 12 fictional FBI agents around the city to win the grand prize.

Escape Murfreesboro is $40 per person or $55 for a VIP ticket including a T-shirt and priority registration.

“This event is a great way to get a big group of friends out and explore Murfreesboro a little closer. Escape Murfreesboro is such a fun, interactive event that gets players using their brains and searching the city to find the elusive missing agents,” said Andrew Wheeler, Manager of Locked Murfreesboro.

Locked Games is locally owned and operated by MTSU graduate Lucas Johnson.

The company is always working to bring new and exciting escape games to the area and hope that the city-wide event is as much fun as its hour-long rooms in Murfreesboro and Franklin, Johnson said. Currently, the Murfreesboro location has two new rooms under construction slated for opening summer 2018.
