WE HAVE THE ANSWERS.
Please see below for full details.
An Escape Room is a group activity that places your team inside a themed game room. Your job is to discover clues, solve puzzles and open locks that will eventually lead to your escape! You have 60 minutes to complete the challenge.
We currently have three games. They are very different in nature from each other.
The Den of Deceit is structured in a more linear fashion. You may have 1-2 clues to work on at a time, but won’t be able to proceed until you have solved those puzzles. The main skills for this game are deduction, reasoning and logic.
The Gemini game is more free form; you will have multiple clues to discover right away, but there is no obvious connection regarding which puzzle matches which lock. This game uses observation, creativity and attention to detail.
We recommend the Gemini game for larger groups as there is more to do as well as opportunities for people to contribute.
We have two identical Gemini games. This allows us to accommodate up to 16 people at one time (in two game rooms). This actually makes a big difference after the game when everyone wants to talk about what they did- trust us!
Abigail’s Nursery utilizes clues and puzzles that require more interaction and activity to solve them. You’ll need to join pieces of information together from multiple puzzles in order to free Abigail and yourself! The Nursery can accommodate up to 10 people at a time.
All of our games are very challenging but people find them difficult for varying reasons! It really depends on the type of puzzles you enjoy and how your brain processes information.
That being said, Abigail’s Nursery has the highest escape rate and a good balance of puzzle difficulty. The Den of Deceit is our trickiest game! Players will need to solve all the puzzles in proper order using a higher degress of logic and thought process. The Gemini games offer a surprising challenge, given the straightforwardness of the puzzles- players will need to work quickly in order to complete everything in this challenge.
Each game lasts for 60mins. However, you can expect your visit to be approx. 90mins. We require you to arrive 15mins early to take care of registration, payment and instructions as well as approx. 10mins of wrap-up and photos at the end.
Guests who are 14 years of age and older may play the games on their own. Those under 14 years require an adult to be in the game room with them. Our games are very fun, but challenging…The Gemini game has interesting games and puzzles for everyone to explore, but solving them takes some additional work and thought.
YES! We have a private area for your group to enjoy if you choose. Perfect for birthdays, meetings, socials or game night! This room can accommodate large groups and allow you to enjoy time to socialize or cater in a meal. The room can hold up to ~25 people at tables or 35 seated. The room rental costs $75.00 for the first hour but can be included in our group rates and packages.
Guests are able to play for free on their birthday- just let us know and have ID with you. (The minimum booking price still applies and the birthday entry is for the additional player). Free entry is valid for one game only and is not available for half price games.
