Answers to common questions below...

Will there be anyone else in the room with us?

No, all bookings are private! When you make a reservation, no one else will be able to reserve that room.

What if I want to add friends last minute?

Because bookings are private, if your final total ends up higher than you initially realized, that’s okay! As long as you do not exceed a room’s max size (you can see max capacity when booking the room), we will be able to add your friends on the spot. If you need to add additional people on arrival, we strongly encourage you to arrive early so we can take care of the new players and not eat into your reservation time.

How much does it cost?

Our buildings have two different prices. Nerd Yellow is $30/per person. Nerd Red is $35/per person. Tickets are for any player ages eight (8) and up. Children seven (7) and under play free.

What ages can play?

All ages enjoy our rooms, we see kids to grandparents play all the time! Players eight (8) and up are required to pay for a ticket, and we require kids thirteen (13) and under be accompanied by an adult.

When should I arrive?

Fifteen (15) minutes before your booking time! Arriving late might mean we are unable to give you your full hour, as we want to honor the time of our other escapists excited to play.

I would like to book a private event/multiple rooms at once, can you accommodate me?

We would love to! Send us an email at with your expected total players, the date/time(s) you are interested in playing, and your preferred contact information. If your total player count exceeds twenty-five (25), ask about our group rate!

Do you accept walk-ins?

While we do our best to accommodate walk-ins, we cannot guarantee we will have availability or the room you prefer. The best way to play is reserving a room via this website to ensure we have availability.

Where should I park?

We offer free two (2) hour parking to customers if you pull up any of our driveways (There are driveways on either side of the Nerd Yellow Building, and one behind the Nerd Red Building). Spacing can be limited, so make sure to accommodate the potential of needing to find an alternate lot on weekends.

Are the rooms scary?

No. Specific rooms (such as Dracula) may have themes or situations that are spooky, but we never try to jumpscare or startle you in any room.

Should I play drunk or high?

In a word… no! You will need your mind sharp and nimble to figure out our rooms!
