What exactly is an escape room?

An escape room is a physical, interactive game where players are trapped in a themed room and their objective is to solve a series of brain teasers to ultimately escape within a specified time limit.  The brain teasers can be a variety of riddles, puzzles, colors, patterns, physical challenges, clue searching, etc.   Escape room games require lots of creative thinking, teamwork, and communication to succeed.

Great for team building, birthday parties, and group outings!

An escape game is a great way for a group of friends to have fun together and enjoy the thrill of victory!   Looking for an excellent team-building event for your office?  Want a different type of birthday party?  Or maybe you’re just looking for something fun to do?  Try the newest escape room right here in Alameda!

Is there an age limit?

Our escape rooms can be played by 2 to 6 players.

Ages 13 and up.  Players under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult player.

Children under 12 are highly discouraged to attend due to violent suggestive theme.

How long does it take?

The escape room game duration is up to 60 minutes.  However, everyone in your group will need to arrive 15 minutes before the game starts for introduction and game rules.  Upon completion of the game or when time has expired, there will be a short debrief for Q and A.

(It is very important that everyone in your group arrives 15 minutes prior to scheduled appointment time to utilize the full 60 minutes in the escape room.) 

In other words, the later you arrive, the less time you have to enjoy the game.

What do we need to bring or wear?

You shouldn’t bring anything other than yourselves and an open mind.  Your brain is the only tool you’ll need to succeed.

Wear clothes that you are comfortable in.

Is an escape room scary?  Is it safe?

Escape rooms in general are not frightening unless you chose a themed room meant to be scary.

Our escape rooms are absolutely safe.   It’s like being in your own home, but with hidden clues scattered about.

You are constantly being video monitored during the entire duration of the game.  The Gamemaster needs to ensure the game flows smoothly (you’re not stuck on one puzzle for too long), and to make sure you’re not doing something that will get you injured.  (Like trying to unscrew an electrical outlet or break open a glass object.)

Can I bring my phone into the escape room.

Simple answer is NO.  Photos, videos, web browsing is not allowed during the game.  We have a locker for your personal items and will keep it locked up during the game.

Smartphones means social media and internet access.  We ask that players not disclose the contents, details, or answers to the puzzles to the public.  This ruins the fun for other players who haven’t attempted the room.
