What is an Escape Room?
Escape Rooms are a new entertainment concept. It is a real life puzzle game designed for up to 10 people. Your goal is simple: work together as a team, testing your wits and skills, to escape from a locked room. While the goal is simple, the game is challenging. Getting through the locked door will require finding clues, solving puzzles, and working together as a team or else you may never escape. Book today and see if you can keep cool under pressure and find the final key to complete the escape room in less than 60 minutes.
Are any of your rooms scary?
None of our escape rooms are scary. The Chamber room has a sinister back story to it to set the tone but it's not like a haunted house. Nobody will chase you around with a chainsaw or anything like that!
How much are tickets?
Tickets are $29 per person.
Should I arrive earlier than my scheduled time?
Please arrive at least 10-15 minutes prior to your escape game start time. This will allow necessary time to fill out your paperwork and receive the mission and backstory pertaining to your specific room escape theme.
If I'm late, can I still play?
The door to the room closes exactly at the time you signed up for. Please arrive 15 minutes early to make sure you are there before the room is locked. You will not be permitted into the room if you are late. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.
How many people can play at once?
We allow up to 10 people in the room at one time. There is no minimum number of tickets that must be purchased, but if you purchase less than 10, be prepared to share the room with other guests. This can actually make the experience more fun.
Will I be playing the game with other people?
This will depend on how many are in your group. If the total available slots are 10 and there are only 4 of you then 6 slots will be "available". They will not necessarily be filled, but there is a possibility that others may buy those tickets. Most people have a great time and meet new friends.
Am I actually going to be locked in a room?
Yes and no. You will be in a room with a locked door, but every door is equipped with an exit button and at any time should you feel the need to leave the room you are welcome to. Of course leaving the room early and before finishing all of the clues will disqualify you from the game.
When are you open?
Please click here to see our available show times! If you'd like to bring a group in outside of our regularly scheduled hours, please shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 614-636-6739 and we'd be happy to help!
Is there an age requirement?
We recommend participants be 8 years of age or older for Back to the 90's and Crazy Cat Lady, and 14+ for The Chamber. 8 -13 year olds can participate in The Chamber with a paying adult. If you are bringing a youth group or doing a youth birthday party, we suggest booking a private party to ensure the best experience possible. If you reserve a private party, you can bring guests of any age. Please contact us to find out more information at email@example.com. Feel free to give us a call at 614-636-6739 if you have any additional questions or would like to plan a special event!
This is a part of our night out, is it ok to drink before we arrive?
Save the celebratory/consulatory beverages for after your show. You will need your brain to be clear to solve the puzzles! Intoxicated guests will not be allowed to participate.
Are walk-ins allowed?
Unfortunately walk-ins are not allowed. All escape game reservations must be pre-booked online prior to the scheduled game time. This makes sure there won't be too many players within each session.
Can I have the room just for my group?
If you wish to have the room for your group only during one of our regularly-scheduled game times, you must purchase an entire block of 10 tickets. You do not need to have 10 participants, however you will need to pay the 10-person price.
I would like to bring a private group outside of your scheduled hours, is this possible?
We often do this for corporate team building and for private parties. Please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up a private group at your convenience.
What happens if we don't escape in time?
We sell your organs on the black market... We are joking of course. Once the timer is up, we will let you out. We guarantee you will love the experience regardless of the outcome.
