FAQ- Lock & Key Escape Room

What Should I Expect?

During an escape room experience, you should expect to spend about an hour immersed in a captivating story, solving puzzles and riddles with a group of people. Whether you come with friends or enter the room with strangers, you’ll quickly become teammates as you work together to race against the clock. Expect to have fun, share some laughs, and get your pulse pumping with adrenaline as the time ticks away!

How Long Does It Last?

Each of our escape room experiences is designed to be escaped in under 60 minutes, however you should plan for about 90 minutes for your entire stay. Come 15-20 minutes early to get signed in and become oriented to this experience.

How Many People Does It Take?

Groups as small as 2 can challenge any room, but we suggest at least 4 players per room. Eight is the maximum capacity as of right now. Either way, the more the merrier. If you have a group of less than 8, you may be placed in the room with another group. Be prepared to become instant comrades with the others in the room- whether you knew them before or not!

Not Sure About This Escape Room Thing?

Every team that plays our rooms has different talents that lead them to success. Come ready to be challenged, but remember to rely on the whole team. Even self-proclaimed “not game-type people” have found themselves loving the challenge and excitement of escape rooms. We dare you to give us a try and discover strengths you never knew you had.
