Who will be in the Escape. game with me?

A maximum of 8-10 players will be allowed to book September 1777 and The Hideout rooms. At Escape. we encourage you to book your room allowing others to join you. Escape. offers the unique challenge of recognizing the groups strengths and vulnerabilities and working together to succeed. We are pleased to offer you the option of closing the room to accommodate just your private party for a small fee. Please check the book now page for rates as it is based on the number of guests playing the game.

Will I really be in a locked room?

No, not technically. All of the doors in front of you will be locked and in order to successfully complete the room you must progress through the series of locked doors. An emergency exit is always available but if you leave the game we respectfully ask that you don’t re-enter.

Can we book a party with you?

ABSOLUTELY! We can’t wait to host your next group event, we specialize in corporate events, team building events, birthday parties, showers and all special occasion events. Check out our book now feature to customize your party experience, feel free to call with any questions.

Do I need a reservation to play a game at Escape.?

Definitely, just click on any Book Now buttons to book your escape experience. If you don’t see the time you were hoping to come please give us a call and we’ll do our best to accommodate you and your group. 

What if I need to change or cancel my reservation?

Changes in booking may be done by following instructions in the confirmation email you received after booking. If you did not receive a confirmation email please email us directly at contact@escapeonqueen.com

Is Escape. handicap accessible?

Our building meets ADA code but if you need additional accommodation we will do our best to help.

What happens if I/we arrive late?

We ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes BEFORE your reservation time. The game begins at exactly the time you reserved and YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO ENTER AFTER THAT TIME. Please allow time to use the restroom if needed before starting. We are located near several great restaurants and cafes so feel free to come early to take advantage of all the great opportunities within walking distance of Escape. There will be no refunds or rescheduling if you arrive late.

Are you accessible by public transportation?

Yes we are, check out the Red Rose Transit Authority for routes and times. Remember you will need to arrive 10-15 minutes before your reservation time.

What happens if I need to step out of the room while the game is in progress?

We ask that once the game has started you don’t leave the room as this can distract from the experience. If you arrive 10-15 minutes before your reservation time that should allow you enough time to use the restroom and get a drink if you would like. If you feel that you must leave the room we ask that you do not re-enter again to allow your fellow player the most immersive experience possible. If you or your group has booked the entire room or you are part of a private party then you may leave and re-enter at your discretion.

What Age Is Appropriate For The Escape. Experience?

Nearly everyone can enjoy Escape. Persons ages 14-17 may play without a supervising adult but must have a signed waiver, ages 8-14 may play Escape. rooms but there must be 1 adult for every 2 children. There is no maximum age, in fact, life experience can only be helpful! We are pleased to offer Shipwrecked for youngest escapees, ages 5-12.

How often do the rooms and puzzles change?

We will change the rooms every 12-24 months allowing you to continue to enjoy Escape. We are excited to be opening our 3rd adult escape room early in 2017.

For our young buccaneers we will modify the puzzles based on the age of group playing. For example if we have a group of pre-schoolers or kindergartners the puzzles will be different that if a group of 2nd graders are playing, there may be similar puzzles but we will do our best to make them age appropriate.

Do I have to book a private party to celebrate an event?

No, if you would like to come and celebrate an event (birthday, anniversary, bachelor/bachelorette party etc.) just book the entire room and leave a us a comment when booking to let us know what your celebrating. If you would like to incoporate something special into the room (a ring perhaps) we are happy to accommodate, just send us an email or give a call to arrange a time to drop off your special item or arrange a secret drop off at the time of your event. If you would like access to our private party room you must book a private party.

Are cell phones permitted?

Yes, but they are not necessary. The games are designed so that you can solve each puzzle or clue from information that can be found in the room. If you feel the need to use your cell phone to look up information you may but we ask that you do not take phone calls in the room and you put your phone on silent. ABSOLUTELY NO PHOTOS OR VIDEOS IN THE ROOM. This is to prevent spoilers for future players.

May I bring a camera?

Yes, there will be time to snap some fun photos after your 60 minute Escape. experience is done but NO PHOTOS OR VIDEOS ARE PERMITTED IN THE ROOMS. The rooms are closely monitored and if you are seen taking photos or videos in the room you will be respectfully asked to delete them and you will also be asked to leave the room without refund or rescheduling. We have selfie sticks available and we are happy to take some photos for you as well.

What is the cost to play Escape.?

September 1777 and The Hideout are $25 per person.
