Who’s Behind The Scenes?

Rob & Tamara Bertrand – Owners

They have two children, Austin and Hayley who have grown up in the Clark County area their entire lives. Their family continues to grow with the addition in August 2022 of their granddaughter, Kinsley. Rob has always been in the entertainment industry so owning an escape room was right up his alley. Tamara enjoys running the business side of things and meeting the many people that come to the escape room. As a family, they like to travel and spend time at the coast.
