Policies

PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS FULLY:

NO REFUNDS

No refunds for late arrivals, no-shows, or cancellations. Strict adherence to the schedule is required.

CHECK-IN

Check-in is 15 minutes prior to game time to allow time for briefs and rules videos.

RESCHEDULING / CHANGES TO BOOKING

Changes to bookings allowed up to 24 hours in advance.

LATE ARRIVALS

Late arrivals lead to reduced game time. The game starts at the booked time, not when you enter the room. When the game clock runs out, your game is over, regardless of the group’s tardy beginnings. Stay sharp and timely. No pauses for bathroom breaks.

NO SHOWS

No-shows are defined as failing to arrive within 15 minutes of the scheduled booking time. No-shows result in game cancellation and fees are considered a donation.

Tips and Tricks

1. DON’T JUST STAND THERE!

Be active and engage with the environment. Explore and interact with objects to find clues.

2. WORK TOGETHER

Work as a team but spread out to find clues throughout the room.

3. SHARE WHAT YOU SEE AND FIND

Communicate all findings and thoughts to the team. Sharing is the key to solving puzzles.

4. WORK FAST AND ASK FOR CLUES

Don’t hesitate to ask for hints early and often. Waiting until the end might leave you short on time.

5. COLLABORATE YOUR SKILL SETS

Utilize the diverse skills within your team. Try different perspectives if stuck.

6. THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

Get creative and think like a storyteller or director when stuck. Let the narrative guide your reasoning.
