Website Logo Section.jpg

Locked in at the Lake is a unique escape room adventure, right here in Northwest Indiana (NWI), in Cedar Lake! With FIVE rooms designed for kids, teens, and adults, there’s truly something for everyone. If you're looking for 60 minutes of non-stop excitement, book your adventure today!

Your group will have 60 minutes to solve the room's challenge. You'll need to solve physical and mental clues, and lots of them. Communication is key, and you'll need to stay cool under pressure!


All of our rooms are priced per person.

After Hours and The Missing Piece are $30 per person.

Under The Stars, The Lake House, and The Vault will be between

$25-30 person based on how many people are playing.

Solve Clues

Each escape room has a number of different types of clues. There are physical clues (clues that you find), riddles, puzzles, and more. Do you need to be a lifelong CSI fanatic to solve these clues? NO! The range of clues is suited to challenge a range of people so that everyone can contribute!


This might be the most difficult challenge: communication! It's a simple concept: talk, talk, talk! You'd be surprised how difficult this is for some groups, though. So gather your favorite big mouths for this escape room!


Time is not on your side here. You'll have 60 minutes to solve your task, which will seem like a refreshing summer nap at first. As the final minutes approach, it'll feel like a tornado came to life as a feral cat who just downed 13 espressos.  Advice? Stay cool, but know you've got to keep solving.

The Vault 

Your group enters the lobby of Safe Holdings Bank, but some of your friends are being held hostage in the bank's vault! It's up to you to get them out, but they will help, too. They've got a lot to solve and both groups need to work together in unique ways to free the hostages.

After you free the hostages (usually half-way through), your entire group will work together to achieve the final task - it's heart-pumping excitement!

This escape room can work with a minimum of 4 people, but the optimum group size is between 6 - 10. 

Great for teens and adults!

The Missing Piece

You have been invited to game night with your friends, where winner takes all!  The problem is when you grab your games you realize one piece is missing from every game.  You only have 60 minutes to play every game and find all the missing pieces. This room is a mix of game show/ larger than life board game excitement!  

This game is a mix of tech and locks!

The Missing Piece has a minimum of 4 players and up to 10 people can play this game! Optimal size is 6-10 people.

Great for teens, and adults!

The Lake House 

So much to explore!

Cedar Lake's rich history leads you to a

60-minute adventure inside the Ball family lake house. The last remaining Ball family member has created a unique task in hopes of finding a proper heir to the Ball family fortune. He's not made it easy, though; only the most fitting heirs will inherit this fortune. Could it be you?

Great for kids, teens, and adults!

Is a very immersive escape room!  You have gone hiking with your friends and you are now lost in Whispering Woods.  You need to work together as a team and use the night sky to find your way out before the sun comes up! 


This room is a mix of tech as well as locks.

Great for teens and adults!

This room can hold  2-6 people.  Under The Stars is not a scary escape room!



After Hours

Rock and Roll has been banned!  You heard there is a secret meeting in Mel's Dinner, After Hours, to listen to your favorite music.  You only have 60 minutes to break into the diner, find out what is causing rock and roll to be banned and see if you can bring rock and roll back!

This room is designed for 16 years old +.  Younger children may go in with their families.  

This is NOT a room for first time escape room players.  This room is for experienced players.
