What is the "room escape" exactly?
This is the "live" equivalent of the popular online game. You are locked in a room with a team of players. Your goal is to solve a series of puzzles that ultimately lead to a key to unlock the room within an hour.
How are the rooms related to their themes?
The setup of the room and the gameplay experience are closely tied to a timeless story. This much we can say without giving away the room-escape experience.
What if we can't get out?
It won't be fun if you get out too easily! The rooms have been designed to make you think as a team. Trust us, the adrenaline rush from working with time limits and the bonding experience with your group are well worth the effort! That said, you will receive clues from our staff if we think they're necessary.
I want to bring kids. Is there an age requirement?
Our players are typically 12 years or older. Anyone under age 16 should be accompanied by an adult. Our rooms have appropriate content for all ages. Also note the difficulty levels of the rooms.
When should we arrive?
Please arrive 5-10 minutes before your game starts. To ensure good experience for all customers, we highly encourage you to be on time. Late arrival may disrupt the current game and the sessions to follow. Our staff has discretion over how to handle late arrivals.
Why are you called 59:59?
You only have an hour to escape the room. 'Nuff said.
How do we get the room entirely to ourselves?
If you don't buy all the tickets for a game session, get ready to make some new friends! Of course, there's still a chance you get a private room if no one else books the same slot. Hey, you never know!
What are your prices?
The price is $28/person + applicable sales tax.
Can we fit more than ten players into one room?
We recommend ten players per room, but have accommodated larger teams in the past. Please book your room for ten people, and then email us about the additional players. We will then charge the extra amount and confirm via email. In terms of maximum of allowed players, the Hound of the Baskervilles can do 13, Chamber of Dreams can do 12, and Three Little Pigs can do 11.
We have more than 13 people. Can we split into multiple rooms?
Yes! Please email us with your inquiry.
What are some other suggestions for having a good experience?
The game requires lots of collaboration and puzzle-solving. Unlike with other things, drinking won't increase the fun here!
