Escape Room frequently Asked Questions

What is an escape room?

An escape room is an activity in which the players solve a variety of fun cerebral and physical puzzles using leads, clues, and physical objects they discover as they explore inside the room itself. The room has an engaging theme. The players are given a time limit to reach their ultimate objective to “escape”.

When can we go?

We are usually open 7 days a week. January - March we are closed Monday and Tuesdays. Times vary depending on day and time of year. You may click the “book now” button for the escape room you are interested in just to check available dates, times, and the current number of participant spaces available at a particular time. Best if booked with 24 hour notice.

Any age requirements?


Due to the difficulty in puzzles/tasks we suggest  the minimum age of 12 years old. Please be aware: The Untouchables Room features bottles of liquor / wine, as well as cigars. The room also has toy Tommy guns and a shotgun in a gun cabinet as decor. The Cursed Treasure room features bottles of rum and a fake "pouch" of tobacco.  Minors under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
