One of Lincoln's first "escape room" businesses is calling it quits.

Smart Rooms, which opened in October 2015 in a space next to the Rococo Theatre at 134 N. 13th St., announced recently that it will be closing.

In a Facebook post last month, owners CJ and Dara Wells said the decision to close, while difficult, is "what is best for our family and our careers outside of Smart Rooms."

Smart Rooms' last day in business is Nov. 12.
