What is an escape room/ escape game?
An escape room is a fun interactive adventure in which people are locked in a room with other participants and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set limit of time (one hour). Players must be observant, use their critical thinking skills, and cooperate as a team to escape the room and win the game. These games are great for couples, double dates, birthday parties, corporate team building events, and community organizations.

They have created the next generation of escape games that is sure to impress new players and even enthusiasts like themselves.
Is there an age limit?
YES! Each of our games has a different age limit.
The Hex Room: Because the puzzles are challenging and the atmosphere is intense, only ages 16+ will be admitted.
The Fun House: This is a wacky, fun and whimsical game, and is open to all ages. The Fun House is designed to challenge adults. If you have anyone under the age of 13 we recommend checking out our alternative version, Fun House KIDS! Anyone under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult ages 18+.
The Fun House KIDS!: For all ages! Request our new kid friendly version of The Fun House so you can enjoy escape games with the whole family! This alternative version allows children ages 8-13 to participate more inside the game. At checkout, make sure to request the KID version. Anyone under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult ages 18+.
Anyone under our age restrictions will not be admitted and no refund will be give. Children CAN NOT be left unattended in the lobby. All participants must sign a waiver.

What is the difference between Fun House and Fun House KIDS?
The Fun House is our original game and is designed to be challenging for adults.
