What is an escape room? An escape room is a physical adventure game in which players are “locked” in a room and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles and escape within a set time limit. Puzzles include ciphers, anagrams, simple math problems, figuring out color orders or even just finding a key hidden under an object in the room. The games are physical versions of “escape the room” video games.
Are any of the rooms scary? our paranormal room, voices, is creepy it is not scary. but our horror themed room Captive is designed to frighten players. while there is nothing that jumps out or grabs participants, the entire room is centered around a horror movie. you may have to face your fears to complete games.
How many players are on a team? Teams for both The Black Rose and Voices consist of two to Ten players, although a minimum of four is recommended, and will work as a team or separately depending on the puzzles. Captive will hold a maximum of six but at least two participants are required to play.
WHAT MAKES A SUCCESSFUL TEAM? THE MOST SUCCESSFUL TEAMS ARE COMPRISED OR A VARIETY OF PLAYERS WITH DIFFERENT SKILL SETS. DON’T JUST PAIR UP PEOPLE YOU BELIEVE ARE GOOD AT PUZZLES. THAT PERSON YOU THINK WON’T DO WELL, MAY BE INCREDIBLE AT THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX. YOU NEVER KNOW WHO WILL BE GOOD AT CERTAIN GAMES
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FINISH THE GAME? THAT DEPENDS ON YOUR PERFORMANCE AND HOW QUICKLY YOU GET THROUGH EACH PUZZLE BUT YOU HAVE A 60 MINUTE TIME LIMIT TO TRY TO ESCAPE SO YOU WILL NEVER BE IN THE ROOMS LONGER THAN 60 MINUTES.
WHAT SHOULD WE DO TO PREPARE FOR THE GAME? THERE IS A 60 MINUTE TIME LIMIT AND BECAUSE WE ARE SCHEDULED EVERY HOUR FOR NEW PLAYERS THE TIME CAN NOT BE EXTENDED SO PLEASE BE SURE TO USE THE RESTROOM AND HANDLE ANYTHING YOU NEED TO BEFORE ENTERING THE ROOM. late arrivals will still have their time started at their scheduled time. no exceptions. anyone not participating in the game will be asked to wait outside as we do not have a waiting area. the lounge is available to rent however. (See online booking for availability and current pricing).
WHEN SHOULD WE ARRIVE? BECAUSE THERE ARE LIABILITY WAIVERS THAT HAVE TO BE SIGNED AND INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE ENTERING THE ROOM WE ASK THAT EACH PLAYER ARRIVE 15 MINUTES EARLY. WE ALSO GIVE YOU THE BACKGROUND STORY ON EACH ROOM SO YOU HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AND THIS CAN TAKE A FEW MINUTES AS WELL.

WILL I BE PUT WITH OTHER PLAYERS? there are 10 spots for each time available and those may book up. if you would like a private room, all 10 spots must be booked. Exceptions can be made on "off days' with a minimum booking. Please call or email well in advance of your time slot to make requests.
WHAT IF WE HAVE MORE PEOPLE SHOWING UP THAN WE BOOKED FOR? if spots are available during the booked time, we can add additional players at the door but it's always better to book ahead to make sure your whole party can be accommodated.
Are there any Age Restrictions? Children under the age of 8 are not allowed in any of the rooms including the lounge. no children can be left unattended even if parents are paid players. Children 8 years and up are charged the same standard rate and an adult must sign a waiver for the child as well. kids 10 and up seem to enjoy the Black Rose Pirate Room because of its theme but also because some of the games are more suited to searching rather than solving. We also make special accommodations for children's parties.
Would this be an appropriate Venue for a Child's Birthday Party? Absolutely. Kids love the Black Rose Pirate room and we can even have a staff member in the room guiding the children along the way to make sure they get the most out of the experience. it also teaches them to think outside the box and look at problems from a different perspective. Please call to book your party to give us time to prepare and make sure we have a staff member available.
Are there any physical Requirements or limits? The short answer is no. Our rooms are handicap accessible and require no heavy lifting, moving of large objects, climbing, crawling, or anything of the like. Women who are pregnant or players confined to a wheelchair can participate as well but of course, any medical condition should be considered before booking. Some of the higher areas on a desk or shelf may not be accessible without standing but no stretching is necessary. always check with your physician before any new activity.
