You and your team work together to find clues, solve puzzles, and crack codes in an effort to unlock lock items that lead to more clues, and ultimately lead you to unlock the door and escape in the time allotted of 60-minutes. If you have not found the final key to escape the room in the time allotted, the game will end and the game master will explain any unsolved puzzles. Doors are only locked in theory. You can exit the game at any time.

All sales are final and tickets are non-refundable: no credit, no date or time changes for cancellations, late arrivals or no-shows. These are advanced ticket purchases for a specific date and time; similar to other ticket purchases made for concerts, plays, etc. Once your group reserves a room, we have turned away others who have wanted that same date and time, and we can no longer sell the room.
We ask that guests please arrive 15 minutes prior to their event time to hear the rules and introduction. For late arrivals, the room will still need to end on time in order for the game master to be ready for the next event running directly afterward. We will do our best to get your game started quickly to allow you as much game time as possible.
If there are individuals who arrive late, they can still join in the game and will require a purchased ticket. Please inform the game master of any potential late arrivals. Late comers should notify you.
