The Beat The Lock game masters are live with you on Zoom interacting with each group from beginning to end. The game master on Zoom connects your group to the room playing videos of things happening in the room and showing pictures of what you find, all provided while in character, while you work with them to help another character escape the room. After your teams initially acquires all of the clues in the room, we have observed that groups listen to each other’s ideas similar to when you hold a brainstorming or clubhouse meeting. Your group is also assigned a part such as a group of neighbors, relatives or operative so everyone is immersed.

Beat The Lock Escape Room is a fantastic activity for groups of children!
We customize our online rooms for kids ages 8-9, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, and 15-16 years. We have hosted many birthdays and the kids find it exciting and challenging! This version is an actual escape room played remotely by your group where everyone can see and hear each other via audio/video conferencing with Zoom. The kids are really enjoying being able to see each other’s faces as they work together to escape! Everyone is engaged and collaborating!
The youngest age that we customize the room is age 8-9 for a 9 year old birthday. We have had a few younger kids participate along with a parent sitting next to them who's role is similar to a teacher and helps kids that young keep their focus and follow along. The game master will be on the entire game, however, when they screen share they will be focusing on the game and listening to the kids ideas and providing hints and clues.
For kids under the age of 9, the parents might want to check in with them periodically to make sure they are following along and provide guidance if needed. There will be a game master as your host on Zoom the entire game interacting and engaging with the group.
For more information, please reference our KIDS ESCAPE ROOM page.

Yes. The game master will provide a few hints along the way.
Unfortunately, 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 5 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.
Reservations made online in advance are recommended to guarantee your preferred date and time.
