What is an “Escape Room”?

An Escape Room or Puzzle Room is a room filled with a series of puzzles and riddles that participants must solve to find clues that will lead to the key that will unlock the room.

Am I really locked in?

Yes, but we always have an emergency key available next to the door for emergencies. We can also leave the door unlocked for the entire event if needed, it's not a big deal, we just ask that you send us an email beforehand so we can have everything set up ahead of time.

What if I have to go to the bathroom?

We encourage escape artists to use the bathroom before the time begins but fear not one of our staff would be glad to help you out of the room and get you back in the game.

Do I need to do anything beforehand/bring anything?

All you need is to be 10 minutes early to your start time to review the rules of the game and sign a waiver and release for video recording. No other preparation is needed.

What if I get stuck on a puzzle or riddle?

Simply ask our staff members for a hint and they will guide you in the right direction, but be wary, each hint will add to your final time!
