Frequently asked questions

It is a game where you and your team are given 60 minutes to solve the puzzles and clues scattered throughout a room in order to escape. Each room is themed with a story, mission, or scenario for you to solve. You will be directly interacting with many aspects of the environment inside the room such as touching, moving, and opening objects while working with others to solve the room.

No, Gone In 60 Escape Games are just that –  escape games. Our rooms are very immersive though and may have a “creepy” feel.  

Yes…and no.  You are put in a room and the door will lock. We want it to feel real!  However, for safety, it is equipped with an emergency exit button. At any time should you feel the need to leave the room you are able to do so by pressing the green Emergency Exit button.

Your freedom! ok, jk…The thrill of victory! Ultimate bragging rights! (What did you expect – a carnival game prize?)

Win or lose, the experience itself is the fun part, but those who escape understand how awesome it feels to conquer the mission. Also, all teams are showcased on our social channels.

The games involve searching a room for up to 60 minutes. This means you could be standing for that length of time.  There is also the possibility of needing to bend, stretch, or crouch.  Please check game descriptions for more details about specific rooms. Remember, the game is a team effort so if one person is physically unable to do a task – another teammate should be able to help! Our facilities are handicap/wheelchair accessible. 

Everything you need will be provided for you in the rooms. All players will be asked to leave their belongings (bag, keys, phones*, etc.) in our lockers (locks are provided).  Things like reading glasses and covered drinks are allowed inside the room.

*The best way to enjoy this experience is without your phone or smart watch breaking your concentration but we understand they may be necessary for a babysitter or on-call work. Please just talk to your GameMaster prior to entering the room. 

Each room must have at least 2 people. Different games will have different maximum people due to size of the room and amount of puzzles.  If you would like assistance planning for larger groups, please give us a call.

Children 8 years of age and up are welcome to play with family. Even so, there are some “creepy” elements of game play that may include the story, lighting, elements of play and more. Please look at game descriptions for more info on specific rooms. 

Lack of maturity and focus is the main reason for age restriction and for this reason, large groups of minors are cautioned. Waivers are required to be signed by a parent/guardian. Please remember that these games are intended to be fun but also include a level of immersion that is meant to produce anxiety, fear, and intrigue!

Minors 16 and under must be accompanied in the room by an adult.

All rooms are automatically private. 

Price is $30 each plus tax.

Adults of any age are welcome. Children 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult in the room. 

Waivers are required to be signed by all who participate. Anyone under the age of 18 will need it signed by their parent or legal guardian. Children under age 8 cannot play.

Our games run on a schedule and therefore reservations or bookings are necessary. Please go to the “Book” tab at the bottom to view the schedule of availability for each game. If you do not see a day and time that you need, you may call or email to see if special arrangements can be made.

We encourage you to book your experience as soon as possible to be able to reserve the day and time that works best for you. Reservations can be made within 60 minutes of a booking start time.

Since we have several bookings throughout the day, one right after the other, we may not be able to delay the start time. If you know you will arrive late, please call to see if this is going to cause an issue. Being “late” is defined as arriving after your booking time. IF YOU or ANYONE IN YOUR GROUP is LATE, the amount of time you are given to play the game may be reduced or you may not be permitted to join the room at all. We are NOT able to add people to the room after it has started. No refunds will be issued for any reason. If you need to reschedule your booking, please call or email ASAP.

Since we do not want to diminish the experience for other players, revealing any details about the rooms, puzzles, and clues with others is strongly discouraged. It’s like telling someone the ending of a movie! Sharing any details relating to clues on social media pages is also prohibited.  We do not allow any pictures or video of our rooms. We do highly encourage tagging, sharing, and reviewing our channels. Check us out on FacebookInstagramGoogle, and Yelp.

For insurance purposes, all participants must sign a waiver.  Waivers are sent via registration email, online here but available onsite as well. PDF link.
