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”.
We are open Tuesday - Saturday by reservation. Times vary depending on day and time of year. You may click the red “Check Availability & Book” button below just to check available dates and times. Limited availability as we are only running 1 group / room at a time. Best if booked with 24 hour notice.
We require a minimum of 4 people paid for a reservation. If a group of 3 pays for 4 people the room can be booked. The rooms are intended to be run with groups of 4 - 8. Due to COVID-19 safety measures we can only take a max of 8 people for a reservation.
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.
All our rooms are now private. Meaning you wont be mixed with another group. Pricing is per person and varies depending on your group size.
Groups of 4 - 5: $30 per person
Groups of 6-7: $25 per person
Groups of 8: $22 per person
Max of 8 people due to COVID-19 safety measures.
