Frequently Asked Questions

An escape room/puzzle room is a real live and interactive game that is a great activity for corporate team building or social gatherings. You will be placed in a specially designed room full of puzzles, clues, and brainteasers. You will be given a back story and an objective to complete, and are allowed one hour to try and successfully complete the room. A “gamemaster” will be watching your team’s progress and will ensure a smooth experience. A gamemaster will not, however, provide hints unless your team specifically requests hints during the game.
