Frequently Asked Questions
What is an Escape Room?
An Escape room is an amusement activity where participants are locked in a room and must work together to solve puzzles. The puzzles eventually lead the group to a 4 digit numeric code, which will unlock the door and allow the group to “escape”!
Will there be other players in the room with me?
If you book the maximum seats for that particular room then the room will have only people you know. However, If you book less than 8 spaces for The Attic, Mermaids Curse and We are all Mad and less than 10 for Wizard’s Lair, there is a chance that others will book into the room with you. If you would like a private room you can call and request and we will do our best to accommodate you based on your circumstances.
