Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of your game, but no more than 20! We want to allow ample time for members of your group to use the facilities, get acquainted with the locks they’ll be seeing in the room, receive a briefing on their objective, and then the fun begins!
If you use reading glasses, bring them along; otherwise, all you will need is your wits! No outside resources can be used during your game, everything you need will be provided to you!

None of our escape experiences require knowledge of the theme in order to escape. While Imposter is based off the popular online game ‘Among Us’ and tends to be a fan-favorite amongst the younger generation, it is not an “easy” room for adults to breeze through. Escape the 80’s has been conquered by those born after 1990 and Triassic Island has been conquered by those born after 65,000,000,000 BC. The only thing that may influence your group’s decision is the aesthetic and the difficulty. None of our rooms are scary, and they all offer something unique to experience!
Imposter: 75% Success Rate
Triassic Island: 55% Success Rate

Sherlock Hunts Jack the Ripper: 15% Success Rate
