What's an escape room?
In short, it's an adventure game in which players solve puzzles and other challenges to complete a mission and escape from a room.
Imagine this - you and your friends enter a room and have 60 minutes to get out. You immediately begin to scope it out: a locked chest, odd assortment of books, and variety of portraits hung on the wall, among other everyday objects. The question is:
Which pieces hold the clues to escape?
How do I become an escapist?
You sign up (either with others or alone) - then show up, put your thinking cap on, and do everything in your power to beat the clock.
Am I smart enough to play?
Yes. Don’t get us wrong, it’s hard — very few teams succeed. But it’s really a win-win: If you finish in under 60 minutes, you are rewarded with eternal glory, and if you don’t make it out, you get a solid hour’s worth of fun. (And it is fun, whether you escape or not!)
Is it safe?
Definitely. All of the games are monitored by a trained Operator, and an emergency exit is always available in case of discomfort or emergency. Simply put, you are never locked in a room.
Is it scary?
It's not meant to be! The lights may get dim at some points, but there's no (intentionally) spooky music or sounds, no frightening pictures, and no one is going to jump out at you - though we can't speak on behalf of your own teammates.
Any restrictions on who can play (age, etc.)?
There are no age restrictions, but we recommend 8 years of age and up. You also can’t have landed on our Prohibited Players List due to lateness, disruptive behavior, etc. Finally, if you are repeating a scenario, you must either be in a group of other “second(+) timers,” or have booked a full scenario with a group of friends who are all aware that you have already played once. (Otherwise, this would be unfair, and un-fun, for your teammates.)
How much do our games cost?
Adult tickets are $28, but we offer discounted tickets at $24.50 for students, seniors (60+), military (ID required), and children (ages 10-12). Full-venue bookings are also available at a discount to non-profit groups.
Are corporate/full venue bookings available?
Yes! Escape games are great team building events. Full-venue bookings are available on weekday mornings and afternoons, and some evenings. Get in touch to schedule your booking.
Is there a min/max number of players per game?
Yes! All four of our games accommodate 2-6 players. You’ll have 48 hours’ notice if a game has to be cancelled due to under-booking. (This almost never happens.) Note that you can choose to book all of the tickets in a given game if you want to make it private. Otherwise, you could be meeting some new teammates!
Do the puzzles ever change?
Every 4-6 months, we retire one escape room and introduce an entirely new one — new theme, new puzzles, the works. Keeps us busy, keeps YOU happy. Unfortunately, this also means that each scenario has a limited life span — 9 months to 1 year. Play them before they're gone!
