Mike and Kyli Whittle
Mike and Kyli, co-owners of Escapetown Peoria, are thrilled to bring this fun and entertaining activity to Peoria. They became hooked on escape rooms after completing their first game, “The Cabin,” at Champaign-Urbana Adventures in Space and Time. Ever since, they have been on a mission to find the next best escape room game! They love spending time with their beautiful daughter, Luna, and lovable, silly pooches, Nitro, Turbo, and Crash.

Steve, co-owner of Escapetown Peoria, is a financial analyst in St. Louis, MO, and a proud alum of Monmouth College.

Steve enjoys waterskiing and hanging out with his three favorite girls, Kendra, Harper and Margot.

Hey hey escapers, My name is Tiffany and I’ve been working with Escapetown Peoria for almost a year. I’m a mother of five amazing blessings! My daughters who are four, the second oldest is three, the (twins) are 2 and the last of the bunch is one. I love solving puzzles and playing games with them. Being here at Escapetown always gives me new ideas of how I can play with my kids and do stuff to keep their brains engaged and learning. They definitely keep me on my toes and I love it. Soooo, if you guys have kids and love to solve puzzles and use your brain and thinking skills, Escapetown Peoria is the place to come and have a tone of fun with family and friends!
Hi! My name is Jenniffer. I love escape rooms, video games, and cinematography! My favorite room is Storm Grove Mansion since it aligns with my love for all things spooky.
Hey future escapers, my name is Alyssa! I am new to the Peoria area, and when I’m not helping out as a Game Master, I’m probably deeply lost and driving in circles somewhere trying to find Five Guys (there wasn’t one back home). In my free time, I LOVE hockey (any team but the Peoria Rivermen, sorry not sorry). I just received my phlebotomy license and I’m pumped to see where this new journey will take me! Before starting here, I already LOVED escape rooms and estimate that I’ve played 35+. I can be quite competitive and bossy in rooms that I actually get to play, but hey. I’m a Leo, so what can you expect? I’ll see you all on the other side, if you can escape!
I’m a computer science major at Bradley university. In my free time I like to play video games, sing with the Bradley choir, and play dungeons and dragons with my friends.
Hi! I’m Chloe and I’ve been working for Escapetown since January of 2021! I’m a senior in high school, and I plan on pursuing a career in secondary education! I love reading and music! I really enjoy seeing how people think when they’re in escape rooms, and how each group goes about things differently!
