Frequently Asked Questions:

Will we be in the room with strangers?
We only book you with your friends or coworkers in a group of four to six people.

Can we bring more than six people into the escape rooms?
We cap the group size at six because we cannot fit anymore guests into the game area.  

Why do you not allow phones?
This is a game of wits; we do not allow any outside help. We may provide scratch paper to work out problems.

How smart do you have to be?
The game is challenging, but is also fun. Most people do just fine; remember we offer clues !!!

Do you get anything for winning the game?
Self satisfaction and a smile !!!

Large Parties and Team building?
We can only accommodate six people maximum with each puzzle room. Currently, we have one room open to the public and expect to open a second one soon.

Will anyone be in the room with us?
No! Just you and your wits, unless you call us for assistance. Unless indicated in our room descriptions in booking.

What happens if we need help or clues?
We will provide up to two clues if you need them.

Do you have strobe lights?
No, but we do use light controllers that make the lights flicker. Unless indicted in our room descriptions in booking.

What if I have to leave the room during the game?
Once you leave the game, you have forfeited. The rest of your team may continue to play, but you will not be allowed to re-enter.

I have Claustrophobia?
We suggest that you do NOT play this game as some of the spaces are small.

Are the rooms scary?
Each room is themed to be fun and entertaining with hidden clues that can be startling, but it is subjective for each participant. Unless indicted in our room descriptions in the booking, they are not designed to be scary.

What are the recommended ages?
Our sets are designed for guests 16 years old or older. However, kids under the age of 16 can be accompanied by an adult while inside the escape room. The adult must be present at all times with the under aged guest. Children sometimes find clues that adults normally would not. We DO NOT offer any child discounts !!!

Is there a penalty for being late?
DO NOT BE LATE... Unfortunately, we have a small time-frame in which to reset the room for the next group. We suggest you and all of your guests arrive 15 minutes early. We will allow the late person into the room after being late, but the end time remains the same.

What should I bring to escape the room?
All personal items are to be stored within the room you will be playing in. Please bring as few items as possible when coming in to play your game.

What happens if I do not escape the room in the allotted time?
You have one hour to complete the challenge, however some will not finish the game. We will offer a final clue if you like, but some will wish to return and play again.
