What’s an escape room?

Inspired by escape-esque video games, adventure board games, and movies, escape rooms are real-life adventure games where participants are locked in a room, and by using the elements around them solve a series of puzzles, find clues, or piece together answers that help them “escape” within a set amount of time. Participants must be extremely observant, able to collaborate with a team, and use critical thinking skills in order to get out.

Do I need to complete a waiver?

We do not require waivers, but we do have a sign-in form outlining our rules and restrictions. Our first priority is participant safety; the rooms do not require any physical or dangerous activity, however if participants choose to attempt something dangerous, we are not held liable for injury. We include photography information covering the photo we take of the group at the end and post to our Facebook page; we reserve the right to use these photos for other escape room promotion. We also ask that participants do not take photos, share puzzle information, etc. Each participant is required to sign in. Click below to see a printable and online version.

Are there age restrictions?

Yes, there are age restrictions. An adult over the age of 19 is required to sign in for anyone under 19 to participate in any of the rooms, so kids 7-18 must have a parent signed form. Kids 7-13 must be accompanied by at least one adult (19 and up). We have an online version and a printable version linked below.

What if I panic once I’m in the room?

Don’t worry! We have cameras set up in each room so we can closely monitor you, and you will have a walkie-talkie so you can reach us if there is an emergency.

What time should we arrive?

Plan on arriving 10-15 minutes before your scheduled room; you’ll have to sign waivers and make sure your entire party has arrived before beginning your escape game.
