- 1. May I bring my infant, toddler or pet?23.04.16More
No one under age of 10 is allowed in the room. The only exception is if your group has booked a private session and the other members of the group are ok with the presence of your infant or toddler during the game. Per building regulations, the only animals allowed are service animals. If you do have a service animal, please contact us at email@example.com before finalizing your reservation.
- 2. Are the adventures scary?23.04.16More
Like any good story, there will be tension and intrigue to keep you intellectually and emotionally engaged. However, there is nothing gory or scary, and no one will jump out to startle you.
- 3. Do I need to play the stories in a room in sequence?23.04.16More
No, each adventure is a standalone story. You will not need any information from a previous adventure in order to succeed. The only connections between the stories in a series are in the narratives. You may miss some of the background connections if you play rooms out of sequence, but it should not affect your ability to complete objectives in the current adventure.
- 4. Will I actually be locked in a room?23.03.16More
No, our adventures are narrative-based, and each adventure has a different objective and most have nothing to do with escaping from the room. The doors are not locked, and you may leave and re-enter as necessary. However, your team will not get any more time, and you will miss part of the adventure.
- 5. How will I know when I am finished?24.03.16More
Each session will end in one of two ways. If a team completes the final objective before time runs out, there'll be a signal that will make it obvious to the team that they have succeeded, followed by a 'success' wrap-up video as the conclusion of the story. If a team does not finish the story within the allotted time, the session will end when the time is up, with a different version of the wrap-up video. In all cases, our game masters will debrief teams inside the rooms at the end of the wrap-up video.
- 6. How long does an adventure last?23.04.16More
Each session is scheduled for either 45 , 60 or 75 minutes, depending upon which adventure you choose. Please arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled start time to check in and briefing. Please also allow for a minimum of 15 minutes for debriefing and a team photo at the end of the session.
