FAQ
What is an escape room?
You will be “locked” inside a room with a group of people. You must uncover the clues, piece together all types of puzzles, strategize with your team to complete you mission and get out of the room in 60 minutes.

Who can participate?
It is great time for all people. Family night, date night, day out with friends, pre-party time, corporate team building...escaping is always fun! All children 13 and younger must be accompanied by at least one adult in the room at all times. Children under 10 can participate only in private games. The themes are not inappropriate for any audience, however, the puzzles are challenging.

How much is a ticket?
Each ticket is $25 per person. If you book Doc’s Lab full at 10 people, there is a 10% discount. Both Doc’s Lab and Moll Dyer are public rooms by default. You may be booked with other players up to the maximum number of participants for the room. If you would like to experience the room with your group only, please book the whole room as a private game. Ready? Book here!

Is the door really locked?
You can always walk out of each room, we want everyone to be and feel safe. The most fun way, though, is to pretend you’re really locked in and solve the puzzles to make your way back out!

Will I be playing with other guests?
With the exception of Cell Block 99, the slots are available up to the maximum capacity of the room. You are welcome to book all of the slots of your own group, otherwise it is possible that you could be playing with other people. We have had many groups come through who had a great time working together. Cell Block 99 must be booked for at least 4 people and is always a private booking.

Is the escape room scary?
Each room has a completely different theme. None of them are scary. The Moll Dyer room has been called a little spooky, but certainly not scary.

Can I book a room outside of normal business hours?
YES! As long as you have at least 4 people to play and book ahead, we can usually accommodate whatever time you are looking for outside of business hours. Just fill out this form and someone from our team will get back to you within 24 hours. If you would like to set up something for team building, please check out this section.

How long before my start time do I need to arrive?
We ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes before you are scheduled to start. This give you time to sign the waiver, use the restroom and listen to the brief before beginning your adventure!

Can I reschedule or get a refund if my plans change?
Sorry, just like a concert or a theater play, once you book your booking is final.

Can I start late?
If it is a public booking we cannot let you into the room late. If your entire group arrives late or it is a private booking, you will be allowed to start with less time on the clock. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to sign in, use the restroom and be briefed on your adventure!
