It is fun! You will be challenged to solve the puzzles, unravel the mystery and escape the room in 60 minutes or less.
What is a Game Master?
The Game Master will introduce you to the game and lead you to your room. Our rooms have cameras and mics which allow the Game Master to monitor play and give appropriate hints when you ask.
What should I bring?
Nothing is required except curiosity and a little competitiveness!
Will I play with strangers?
This depends upon the size of your group. It is possible, if your group is small. If you would like to play without any others, simply book the whole room by clicking on Private Event on the Booking page.
How long does it take?
Your start time allows for a few minutes to complete waivers and for a brief orientation. You will be escorted to your room and time will begin after an introduction by the game master or a video. You will have 60 minutes to solve or escape and then hours to talk about it!
What if we can't get out in time?
The room will explode, scattering your body parts and staining the carpet.
No seriously, you will have to live with the emotional pain and humiliation of failure.
Actually, we will let you out with your body and pride intact. We will even explain any remaining puzzles. Some groups will be unable to escape within the time limit. This is all part of the fun.
What if my group is too big?
Book 2 rooms or the same room with sequential time slots. Please let us know and we will make sure there is a table and chairs for part of your group to wait while the others play.
Can I have a birthday party?
Of course! We no longer have a room dedicated to children, but we have a gathering space for birthday parties for adults and older kids. Kids enjoy Blue Virus and the Gold Rush with their families and friends. See age limits below. Be sure to call so we can set aside tables and chairs in the common area for you.
Children can participate with their families. Please look at specific rooms for age suitability. If you have older children, please consider Blue Virus or the Gold Rush Cabin. A responsible adult is required in the room with all ages. Children under age 10 can participate with their families but will not be able to solve. An adult per child under age 10 is a good idea. Ages 12 and up can actively participate and surprise us with their ideas!
Things happen. We understand! Call us and we will find another time that will work. Please allow us as much time as possible. There is no charge for rescheduling with a reasonable time notice.
If you cancel (rather than changing times) more than 48 hours in advance AND want a refund, there will be a15% charge due to credit card processing fees and time. If you cancel less than 48 hours but more than 24 hours in advance, the fee is 25% and cancelation less than 24 hours in advance is non-refundable. Thank you for understanding.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, debit and credit cards as well as PayPal. Please pay online in advance to reserve your room or you may pay upon arrival if you call to arrange.
How difficult is it?
Every room is different. Sometimes it is easier with more people. Communication is a absolute must! All rooms will have opportunities for everyone to participate.
It will be rare that a group finishes in less than 40 minutes and uncommon for a group to be unable to escape in time. Some groups just need a little more help. This is all part of the fun.
