Mike and Kyli Whittle


Mike and Kyli, co-owners of Escapetown, 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 and Kendra Whittle


Steve, co-owner of Escapetown, is a financial analyst in St. Louis, MO, and a proud alum of Monmouth College. He has loved escape rooms since he solved the “Walk Like an Egyptian” clue in “The Tomb” room in downtown Maplewood, MO with his brothers and sisters-in-law. Steve enjoys waterskiing and hanging out with his three favorite girls, Kendra, Harper and Margot.
