No, but some of the themes are scary.
Will I be locked in the room?
No! Our games are designed without the locked door feature at this time.
I have never done a room escape or even solved a word jumble, will this be too hard?
Absolutely not! It is created for the newest escape room player to the seasoned puzzle solver. There is also a hint system as part of the game. You may not win, but you will have a great time
Do I need to have any special skills or be good at math?
Not really, every puzzle is solvable with basic real world knowledge and you will also be given a character card that will give each individual player some help along the way. In addition to that there is also the Curator to help you with hints.
How many can play Rise of The Mad Pharaoh?

We allow 4-14 players. For teams with less than 10 you can email or call us in advance and ask for "Expert Mode"

How is this for corporate team building?
Excellent! It is designed as a team building experience. Come to us, or we can bring the entire game to you. You only need an empty conference room. This saves your employees and your company from paying for parking, and losing travel time away from the business day. Contact us and we will set it up.

Email us and we will set up one that works
Will the game master be in the room the entire time?
Our game masters are themed to be in the room and help you along the way in character.

Yes, but use of phones, cameras and other devices is prohibited. You are able at any time to step out into the hall for a phone call.

Will there be prizes?
YES! Every team has a chance at a reward token.
Can we drink or smoke during the game?
No, even if you have us come to you, if anyone is under the influence we cannot proceed.
