CAN I DO IT AGAIN?

Once you've done the room, obviously you would ruin the show for other participants. However, if you would like to come back with another group of friends, we allow one free observer to game. You won't be allowed to help in anyway, but you can enjoy watching your friends try.

The maximum capacity of each game is 12, but you do not have to have 12 people in your group to play the game. We will put you with other gamers.

HOW LONG BEFORE MY SCHEDULED TIME DO I ARRIVE

We ask that you please arrive at least 20 minutes prior to your scheduled ticket time in order to fill-out paperwork and listen to our tips and safety speech. Late arrivals will be admitted, but your 60 minutes window cannot be extended so you will have less game time. NO REFUNDS will be offered for late arrivals or no shows.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I'M LATE?

The game begins at exactly the time prescribed. If you are late you will not be allowed into the room. If another show that day has openings, we will try to accommodate, however, there will be NO REFUNDS.

WHAT IF I CANT SOLVE A RIDDLE OR CLUE?

That's why teamwork is so important. Work as a group to solve the clues.

DO I HAVE TO BE REALLY SMART?

Nothing in the game requires special training or skills. You just have to be willing to work as a team and be persistent.

WILL WE REALLY BE LOCKED IN A ROOM?

The door you enter from acts as both an entrance and an emergency exit. However, if you must leave through this exit, the game will end for you immediately.
