FAQ

What exactly is an escape room?

Our rooms are specially modified spaces, based on a specific theme/scenario with unique decor. Inside, a group of 2-8 persons is getting locked in and they have to find all the clues, solve all the riddles, open hidden doors and operate weird constructions and mechanisms that keep the door locked. The time runs and the team has to escape!

Is it Safe?
Yes. There are workers in the facility with you while you play so that in case of an emergency everyone participating will be safe.
What if we get stuck on a puzzle?
There are assistant detectives (game masters) there to facilitate the game with you and can provide you with clues if you become stuck or if you ask for one.
Can we book for a group of people?

Yes. The room we have can run with 2 to 8 people, if you book for this amount then you can play with your family & friends. If not then why not get to know new people when we offer combine groups.

Is there an age limit?

Technically, there is no age limit to play, but the game can be very challenging. Most clues are too complicated for kids under 10 to solve alone and it is recommended that you be no younger than 10. However, families with one or two younger children have successfully escaped. Many different viewpoints are critical for success and often children notice things that adults have missed. Players that are 14 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult.

The exception to this is our 30 minute room that is designed for families with younger children 5-10. 

How long does the whole experience take?

We suggest an hour and a half for total game play for our 60 minute rooms. The game runs for an hour with a 5-minute pre-game briefing session. We ask all players to arrive 15 minutes prior to their start times. We also have a 30 minute room as well.
