Herndon Centre’s Escape Room Herndon has officially outgrown its space.

The business, which will remain at its current location, is creating a new room called Raven’s Nest Escape Room a few doors down from its current location (406 Elden Street).

“We just couldn’t bring ourselves to retire any of our current rooms so we decided instead that its a good time to expand,” said Omer Aru, the owner of the company.

Typically, the business retires its existing rooms to make space for others.

Raven’s Nest will feature two large game rooms for 10-plus players and a themed party room for birthday parties with cake.

“Raven’s Nest will feature all the same thrilling gameplay you’ve come to expect from ERH but with new and exciting twists,” Aru said.

It’s expected to open sometime this fall — possibly on Oct. 1. Aru stressed that opening date is an estimate.

Current rooms include the 8-bit escape, maritime mutiny, magician’s workshop, and the grave robber’s dilemma.
