If you need to switch your booking time for a later or earlier date that must be done the day of your arrival time. As a family owned business we understand that life happens so give us a call should you not be able to make your scheduled appointment, we’re more than willing to work with you.
Are any of your rooms scary?
While none of our rooms are billed as “horror” we do like to keep the atmosphere to some of our rooms suspenseful. Pandorum is a science fiction thriller that does include dark confined spaces, loud noises, strobe and fog effects. However the level of suspense can be adjusted per your request to accommodate the needs of your group.
What is the recommended age?
The recommended age for any of our rooms is 7 and up. That’s not to say we don’t allow younger, but do keep in mind that some of our puzzles may be too difficult for anyone under 7 to solve alone. Anyone over the age of 14 can enter the room without an adult but under 18 must have an adult sign our liability waiver.
Can we bring drinks into the room?
We do not allow outside drinks in our rooms. We do have alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages to be purchased in our Hideaway Lounge which can be taken into the rooms! In fact we even allow the ability to get refills delivered to your room as well!
Are you really going to lock us in?
No you will be able to leave and reenter at any time, just be aware that the timer will still be running when you rejoin your group.
How many clues do I get?
We abide by the standard clue policy of 3 free clues during your 60 minute escape game. Here at The Escape Co. we do offer a fourth free clue by liking us on our social media pages! This can come in handy in some of our more difficult rooms. If your group isn’t competitive and just wants to have fun let your game host know and they will be more than happy to provide additional clues, but more than 4 will prevent you from joining our leaderboards!
Will I be paired up with strangers?
Unless you book a private room, there is a possibility you will be paired with another small group per the room capacity. Our game host will be sure to introduce you all and our escape games are great way to make new friends! If you are interested in booking a private room be sure to give us a call and ask about our group rates.

Can I use my phone in the room?
You are welcome to have your phone in the room, but if you need to use it for any reason please step outside (remember that door will not be locked) as not to disrupt the game for others.
Can I take pictures in the room?
No. We do not allow any pictures, videos, snapchats, Instragram stories, live broadcasting or recording of any kind in our rooms. This is to preserve the mystery and game play for any future guests.
