About Lokey’s

Who is Lokey? Nobody really knows. Lokey is a mystery wrapped in an enigma splashed with whimsy. It goes that many years ago Lokey came to earth to bring fun, adventure and thrills to the masses through story. As a teller of stories, he has a special power whereby people can inhabit the stories he tells. Lokey travelled far and wide for years searching for the best audience to tell his stories to. In his long pursuit, he found you.

What does Lokey want for the Player? Lokey wants the Player to have a comfortable experience and plenty to do. Many places will advertise that they can fit 7-10 Players per room. That is simply not true. The vast majority of escape rooms can barely hold four Players — tight and no puzzles to go around. So at Lokey’s, we will never make you feel like a sardine. You will have space. And you will have puzzles. Everybody involved will be involved in the story.

Who works for Lokey? That would be Richard and Chelsea. With a passion for movies, screenwriting and games – plus having played over 100 escape rooms — they wrote and designed Lokey’s stories from the ground up. Their mission is Lokey’s mission: to provide highly immersive, always private escape room experiences at an affordable rate. And so far, that goal has been reached thanks to our Players: Lokey’s is Sarasota’s, Bradenton’s and Lakewood Ranch’s #1 highest rated escape room experiences.

What is an escape room? At Lokey’s, it’s like stepping into a movie — and you’re the star. Think of Lokey’s “escape rooms” more like themed, immersive experiences where you and your friends and family create fantastic memories as you solve puzzles, decipher clues, and complete challenges in one hour.

Lokey’s escape rooms are also the largest in Sarasota. And good news: You are not “locked” or “trapped” in a room. If you wanted to leave at any time, you could. You also are not “escaping” a room. Rather, at Lokey’s, you are moving through a story. (And Lokey’s stories begin before you even enter the experience…) For one hour, you are simply having amazing fun and making unforgettable memories with your friends and family. And that’s the most important part.
