This Memorial Day Weekend, Stark Caverns is launching their brand new Cave Escape Adventure!

You are invited to play “Bootlegger’s Request”; a new Cave Escape Adventure at Stark Caverns where the cave will become an escape room where you and your friends can try your luck to find the clues, solve the puzzles, and unlock the secrets to beat the clock and escape the cave.

Memorial Day Weekend hours will be extended to include Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night at the following times:

  • 5:45 p.m.
  • 7:15 p.m.
  • 8:45 p.m.

Due to the current recommendations from the CDC, Stark Caverns is limiting each group to 10 people, and tickets must be purchased in advance online. Guests will also have the option to purchase the entire room.

If you miss out the Memorial Day Weekend debut of this exciting new Cave Escape, all is certainly not lost! The "Bootlegger's Request" Adventure will be available on Friday and Saturday nights at the times listed above all summer!

“Cave Escape has been a fan favorite for the past few years here at Stark Caverns,” says Operations Manager, Chaz Jesiolowski. “With this new storyline, we’re tapping into the history of the cave, which was used by moonshiners in the late 1800s. We want to give players a chance to really immerse themselves into the story which is what makes escape rooms so much fun.”

Escape rooms have grown in popularity over the past decade, but Stark Caverns is still unique as one of the only places to play inside an actual cave. Operational changes have been put in place this year amid current health concerns to create a safe playing environment for all guests. “We’ve implemented preventative measures, including sanitizing the gameplay area and props between each session. Our employees will be wearing masks, and adhering to rigorous cleaning and health protocols.” Currently, each reservation time slot is limited to 8 guests, with the option to purchase the entire hour for your group exclusively.

Fun for all ages, Cave Escape is an exciting way to enjoy your time at Lake of the Ozarks. Perfect for family night, parties, getaway weekends, and a night out with friends. The history of Stark Caverns comes to life as you search for long-lost Grandpappy’s secret moonshine recipe inside the 60-minutes before the “revenuers” arrive. Get your tickets now at
