What is the cost to experience an escape room at The Escape Lounge?

The “Oval Office” and “Blowout” are $25 per person, regardless of age. They are both 60-minute games designed for adults but enjoyed by all ages.

The “Classroom” is $15 per person for ages 3-9; $25 per person, ages 10 and over. This is a half-hour game designed to challenge young minds.

Will my group be the only team in the room?

The only way to ensure your team is the only group in the room during your activity is to book ALL 10 SLOTS. We book up to 10 individuals per time slot, unless you are hosting a private event at the venue. So, if you only book five slots for a particular day/time, there are five still available and those slots may be booked by others, which means you may have individuals on your team you do not know. However, that doesn’t make the game any less fun. In fact, it can make it even more interesting.

What happens if there’s an emergency and I need to get out of the room?

All game rooms have an emergency key that is readily accessible. The location of that key is shared with each team before starting the game. Games are also observed via video surveillance so our staff is readily available to assist if needed.


Can I record our team during the game?

No. Cell phones are not permitted in the game rooms at all. They will be collected before your team enters the room. All games are monitored via video surveillance.

What happens if I have to use the restroom?

Everyone is encouraged to use the restroom before starting the game. If your game has to stop for any reason, your game will end and there will be no refunds.

Is there an age requirement to participate?

Escape the Oval Office and Blowout are designed for individuals of all ages but adults more specifically. The clues and puzzles are challenging and require a basic level of wit to be successful. Escape the Classroom is especially designed for younger children, ages 5 and over.

Can my children participate on their own?

No. Teams of children must have at least one adult. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

If I host a private event, will I have the entire venue to myself?
