WHAT IS AN ESCAPE ROOM?

It’s an exciting, adrenaline filled hour where you’ll use your brain, use teamwork, and have a ton of fun doing it. The original concept of Escape Rooms developed in Asia, spread to Europe and is now taking the US by storm. A room escape involves a group of people “locked” in a room who have to work together to solve puzzles and riddles, decipher codes, and uncover clues in order to find the final key to escape the room or to complete a mission. The hitch- you only have a limited amount of time to do it. In other words, it’s a really fun way to spend an hour UNLOCKING YOUR BRAIN.

IS IT APPROPRIATE FOR FAMILIES?

Absolutely! It’s a great experience for families, co-workers, friends, or complete strangers.

IS THERE ANYONE ELSE IN THE ROOM WITH US?

THE CHAMBER holds up to 10 people, MISSION CRITICAL holds up to 8. Unless you book the entire room, you might be working together with a few people you don’t know, but that can really be fun! There are no staff or actors in the room with you. We closely monitor the rooms with video and audio to help the games proceed and give clues when needed.

ARE YOU REALLY LOCKED IN A ROOM FOR AN HOUR?

No. At all times, there’s a door that remains unlocked to exit if absolutely needed.

ARE THE ROOMS SCARY?

Neither THE CHAMBER nor MISSION CRITICAL are necessarily scary. They both have sound effects and definitely drama, but not a lot of scary stuff.

IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT?

We recommend 14 years and older for both rooms. That’s only because some of the game content may be too difficult for younger children. If you book the entire room then, no worries, bring your newborn! In any case, children 13 and under have to be accompanied by a paying adult.

HOW LONG IS THE EXPERIENCE?

You have exactly 60 minutes to escape THE CHAMBER or complete MISSION CRITICAL. However, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your reserved time for orientation and check-in. Expect to spend a little time after the hour is over to process the experience and take a photo. In all, total time is no more than 90 minutes.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING (OR LEAVE IN THE CAR)??

Every person in your group must sign a waiver (Download Waiver) and bring it with them. Also, since NO CELL PHONES ARE ALLOWED in the rooms, feel free to keep them in your car, or you can use one of our lockers to keep them safe. But most of all, bring your brainpower and deductive reasoning- you’ll need it to solve the puzzles and crack the codes.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I’M CLAUSTROPHOBIC?

The Chamber comfortably hold 10 people and Mission Critical 8 people and there is always and unlocked door. But only you can determine your level of claustrophobia.

ARE WALK-INS WELCOME?

That all depends on the space availability. Since all registration is completed with a credit card online on the website under Get Tickets (link), checking the site first is always your best bet. If there happens to be room when you pop in, tickets are sold in person on cash basis only with exact change required please.

CAN YOU CANCEL, MAKE CHANGES TO A RESERVATION, OR GET A REFUND?

Sorry, there are no cancellations, changes or refunds.

CAN WE EVER LEAVE THE ROOM?

We highly discourage leaving the room. However, we know that life happens so you won’t get penalized if you have to leave and come back.

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ARE CLUELESS?

We want you to succeed but we won’t give you the answers. If you get stuck, you can request clues to help you out. And, who knows, you might get a few helpful hints along the way.

DO YOU HAVE A PARTY ROOM?

Yes! Click here Party Room
for event/party room information and let the fun continue!

DO YOU SERVE ALCOHOL?

No, we do not serve alcohol. We reserve the right to ask anyone that appears intoxicated to leave the premises.

ARE YOU WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE?

Yes. Both rooms are ADA compliant and we have a wheelchair ramp for access.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE GAME?

Hopefully you’ll be talking about what a fun time you just had. We would love if you could recommend us to everyone you know, but short of that, we would love a kind review on social media- word of mouth is our best friend. And hopefully you’ll take a second to enjoy a photo op that gets posted on Facebook and possibly our wall of winners.
