What is an escape room?
Escape rooms are a new form of entertainment where players are locked in a heavily themed room with other participants where you must follow clues, solve puzzles, find keys, and escape the room in 60 minutes.
Will we be playing with strangers?
No, not anymore. We now offer all private rooms at no extra charge. Once you book a room, it will automatically be closed and no further action will be necessary to ensure a private room.
Why can’t I book a room for just the 2 of us?
Our rooms are meant to be challenging enough to engage larger groups, up to the room maximum. Many times, especially for first timers, we have found that booking a room with only 2 people is just too challenging, even overwhelming. Escape rooms are meant to be a group activity. If you would like to book a room with only 2 people you can still do so but you’ll need to pay for the room minimum of 4 people. Please note, Prison break physically requires 4 people to complete one of the tasks in the room, so 4 people is mandatory.
Is it scary?
Yes and No. It depends on which room you choose to do. Currently we have a Bank Heist themed room, a Serial Killer room, a Prison Break, and a Deserted Island room. Our Serial Killer has some elements that may make some people uncomfortable but it's not the same type of scary you would expect from a haunted house. Rather, the puzzles and props in the room are ones of which you might find in a Serial Killer's lair.
How long does it take?
Currently, Our Bank Heist, Serial Killer, and Deserted Island rooms are all 60 minutes. Our Prison Break is 75 minutes in length. We will offer more rooms in the future that could vary in length. Please arrive 15 minutes before your session begins. This allows enough time to get checked in, use the restroom if necessary, and get an explanation of some of the rules. Expect your entire session to take roughly 60-90 minutes from the time you enter our facility to the time you leave depending on which experience you choose.
Why does the prison break cost more than the other rooms?
The Prison Break is $5 more per person because the length of the game is 75 minutes as opposed to 60 minutes. During testing, it proved to be too challenging when only allowing 60 minutes. We put a lot of thought and effort into the room, as well a large amount of wiring for all the props and puzzles, and we didn’t want to take anything away.
is it DIFFICULT?
Yes, our rooms are very challenging but vary in difficulty. The average success rate hovers around 28% to 58% depending on the room.
What is the cost?
The cost is $25.00 per person plus tax. We also offer a $5 discount for students of all ages. The cost of the Prison Break is $5 more but the room is also 15 minutes longer.
Can I purchase gift certificates?
YES! You can purchase gift vouchers online or you can stop by our location and get a physical printed version.

Will my session be with other players?
No. All of our rooms are private rooms at no additional charge and no further action is required to ensure a private room.
What if i cant handle it and i need out?
If at any time you feel that you absolutely NEED to leave the room, you can. There is an illuminated emergency exit button and the rooms are video and audio monitored by a game master to ensure your safety.
Do you have a restroom?
Yes, we do have several restrooms at our facility.
whats the minimum age requirement?
We advice a minimum age of 10 and up. For the Serial Killer room, the minimum age is 16 unless accompanied by an adult.
where should we park?
There is 2 hour on street parking as well as a parking ramp one block West of our location but it can be tough to find a spot so we suggest coming plenty early to ensure a timely arrival. The 2 hour parking and reserved ramp parking is only enforced during the week until 6:00 P.M.
if we want to do the escape room and the segway tour, can we get a discount?
Yes! If you decide to go for both activities we will give you a 10% discount on each activity. Just call us to get everything set up for you.
