Michelle Hill ''The Shadowy Mastermind''

Michelle Hill ''The Shadowy Mastermind''

Favorite Room: Escape the 1980's

Very little is known about the elusive entrepreneur behind the curtain here at Escape Games Live. There have been whispers that she descended from the great puzzle designer Lockingus Longtimus, the ancient Latin puzzle creator. Some say she traveled through the land for 75 years training under the most renowned designers of escape rooms and stays alive due to a small amount of dragon blood in her system. Alternatively, she could just be the woman in charge, but mysterious. Elusive and mysterious.
Steve ''Tall Silent Type'' Shellenberger

Steve ''Tall Silent Type'' Shellenberger

Favorite Room: Sherlock's Office

Steve is descended from a long line of Steves dating all the way back to Steve. I sat down to speak with Steve to find out more about him for this biography of Steve but it appears Steve’s vow of silence, forced on him by Steve the 23rd Duke of the Earl of Steve, I was unable to ascertain any real facts about him save that he appears to be accompanied by Country music when he enters or leaves a room and he has a fondness for koalas.

Alex ''Please Fix Me'' Kuhlman

Alex ''Please Fix Me'' Kuhlman

Favorite Room: The Precinct

Alex Kuhlman is our resident Maintenance tech/ duct tape master. He loves working out the details to a problem, and can usually be found in a junkyard creating a small army of robotic mice (all named Bruce) with which to take over the world.
He loves movies and video games and has been asked by his wife to put the controller down on numerous occasions.
Alex enjoys hosting games and has been told many times to stop locking people in rooms just to “test out the locks.”
John ''Almost the 80’s'' Alfano

John ''Almost the 80’s'' Alfano

Favorite Room: Escape the 1980's

John was initially assigned to Escape Games Live through Community Service. After having pled guilty to Dispensing False Directions under Oath, he completed the hundred hours on consecutive Saturdays and Sundays. Staying on as a Weekend Warrior, his rehabilitation continues through the dedication to truth and honesty towards my customers. He sometimes lapses. Known for his colorful clothes and language, he chose to stay on rather than pursue the offer from Game of Thrones because Escape Games Live was able to promise no nudity. Finally, he feels he was destined to be at Escape Games Live because his High School Class voted him ‘Most Likely to Get Locked in a Bathroom.’
James ''The Captain'' Kirk

James ''The Captain'' Kirk

Favorite Room: The Precinct

One look at Escape Games Live’s resident Captain and you will say the same thing everyone else does: “That dude just came from a Fuddruckers.” James came to Escape Games Live the same way most people find a job, he was rented at an auction. Having earned his freedom in the Gladiatorial arena by defeating the twin janitors, Spit and Shine, James has now found his home here at Escape Games Live. His duties include word sorcery, tenor 2 in the barbershop quartet releasing their first album later this year called “We Don’t Have a Barbershop and There’s Only Three of Us.” James enjoys long board games that make people submit before finishing, pistachio anything and videos of monkeys doing stupid things.
Declan "Curtain  Call" Hilt

Declan "Curtain Call" Hilt

Favorite Room: The Mad Doctor

All the world is a stage and Declan takes advantage of each curtain rise, except for when it rises during awkward situations like using the bathroom. Come to think of it, the WHOLE world can’t be a stage because when would the lights go off? He can’t sleep with the lights on. What if he’s at the movies and the audience decides to clap during the wrong time? You know what, we think that just the stage should be the stage. Yeah. That way he won’t be judged if he’s eating and drops ketchup on his shirt.

Johnathan "13" Puppelo

Johnathan "13" Puppelo

Favorite Room: The Precinct

13 (aka Jonathan), having recently escaped the right-side-up, stumbled upon the Escape Games Live crew, who were in dire need to find their friend. Having a knack for finding things he agreed to help them in their quest. After some time 13 found out that he was, in fact, their missing friend. Over the years he has become a “jack of all trades” with attributes including exceeding the limits of objects (aka breaking stuff) on purpose and by accident to determine why things fail. He is also an inquisitive Ravenclaw with Slytherin undertones who can find almost any loophole or rule and exploit to its fullest but doesn’t because that wouldn’t be kind.

Karen "it's Electric" Fairlamb

Karen "it's Electric" Fairlamb

Favorite Room: The Jungle

Karen came to Escape Games Live shortly after leaving the EPP (Electronics Protection Program). There, it was discovered that anything with an electrical charge or anything that plugs in behaves differently around her and eventually just gives up. Karen is the quiet humor ninja of the Escape Games Live crew and has found her niche as both an inspector and as a rentable Sherpa.

Mike "Smurftastic" Reynolds

Mike "Smurftastic" Reynolds

Favorite Room: Young Sherlock

Mike hasn’t told us what brought him here but after some research, we found he was able to convince the French authorities that he was “not the droid they were looking for” and made it back to the U.S. by convincing the Swiss to take a side and announce that they were Pepsi drinkers. All of this because he left his passport in a hotel in the Alps. Now back home, he spends his time trying to get photographic proof of Santa Claus and Easter Bunny and helping wayward Smurfs find their Smurfing home. That Mike sure is one Smurf of a Smurf.
