Who is it For?
OB-Xscape Rooms’ escape games are great for anyone who loves unique and creative experiences, mental challenges, surprises, and tons of fun! Escape games are perfect for casual get-togethers with friends and family, gamers, “interesting” date night, tourists, special events, birthday parties, corporate team building, corporate evaluations of team members, or simply just a reason to “ESCAPE” the house!
Our escape rooms are appropriate for most children, but please refer to the specific game you are interested in as some games are more appropriate than other. However, the exception is the Rest In Peace escape game is restricted to players ages 18 years and older. If we think you look younger than 18 years old, we may ask for identification verification.
How Many Players Are in a Booking?
Each room has a different allowance of participants. Check each room’s description for the minimum and maximum participants.
NEED TO KNOW for Cell Block Four and Rest In Peace Escape Games:
- Cell Block 4 Death Row Escape Game: There are FOUR prison cells and FOUR motel rooms respectively so there needs to be at least one person in each cell. Children 13 years old and under do not get “locked up” alone, so you need to have at least four players that are 14 years or older, so that the younger children with be paired with an older player. If your group is less than eight players, that means one or more of you will initially be alone in the prison cell. No cell can be empty at game start. Know ahead of time who is going to initially play alone.
- Rest in Peace Escape Game: This is a HORROR escape game which is rated R for profanity, gore, and nudity. There are FOUR motel rooms, so a minimum of four players ages 18 years or older are needed to play. If you are not 18 years old, then we will see you in two years, however for now we have six other games younger players can chose from. If your group is less than eight players, that means one or more of you will initially be alone in the motel room. No room can be empty at game start. Know ahead of time who is going to initially play alone.
Will There Be People I Don’t Know in the Room?
No, unless the player that invited you also invited someone you do not know. All escape games are private bookings. When you book your room, there will be a maximum player listed for that particular room. If you booked with less than the maximum capacity, you may bring others to your booking as long as the total number of players do not exceed that room capacity. Additional players are priced at $35/per person and payment can be taken at check in or you can modify your booking on your account.
What Should I Bring with Me?
Bring an adult for any player 13 years or younger. Bring an age verification to show you are at least 18 years of age if you are playing the escape game, Rest In Peace (Opens Fall 2020).
If you are booking Mutiny on the Lark or Rest In Peace games then leave watches and bracelets at home because you begin the game in restraints.
Other than that, just bring your wit and cleverness with you and leave any egos at home. The answers to the clues, riddles, and puzzles are all in the rooms. You will be using your ability to look for clues, make logical connections between objects and elements in the room, as well as communicate with the other performers, and apply deductive reasoning to escape.
When Should I Arrive for my Game?
We ask that your party arrives 15 minutes prior to your scheduled booking time in order check you all in and present our escape room and safety briefs.
No refunds will be offered for arrivals after the booking time and the time will be taken from the booked time you had reserved because there is another group coming in after your game and the room needs to be ready for their arrival.
Please see our cancellation/late arrivals/no show policy.
What if I Need to Change my Reservation and What is Your Cancellation Policy?
Please pay attention: No refunds are given for groups or part of a group that shows up late, fails to show up, or cancels.
RESCHEDULING/CHANGES TO BOOKING
Based on availability, bookings may be rescheduled or game changed up to 24 hours in advance of booking,
A booking is considered a no-show if a group or part thereof fails to show for the booking 10 mins past the scheduled booking time.
Since your ticket reserves the room for a set scheduled time, in case you show up late, your game time will be decreased. If the rest of your group arrives on time, they will be allowed to start without you. No exceptions. Your game STARTS at your BOOKING TIME even if you are not in the room, which is why a 15 minute arrival before your game start time is required.
Are Cell Phones Permitted?
Cell phones are not allowed in the room. The use of electronic devices or any outside tools are strictly prohibited and you will immediately be removed from the escape room if you attempt to use them, especially filming or photographing the game
We provide a locked wall cabinet to store your phone outside your room if you would like to bring it in to take pictures afterwards.
All of our escape rooms are monitored by our Game Guides 100% of your time in the escape room.
What Should I Wear?
Wear flat shoes, and we recommend (not required) closed-toe shoes for players in the Mutiny on the Lark.
For your safety, you will not be allowed to participate if you are wearing high heels or barefoot. You are welcome to bring a change of appropriate footwear with you. We also recommend dressing in layers as you may start to feel like you are in a human stew which may not be very appetizing for the other players.
How Old Do You Have to Be?
Our escape games are an entertainment activity for mostly older children to adults. Most of our rooms are dark and intimidating with complex puzzles that require a higher level of solving.
A minimum of one adult per four children (13 years old and younger) must accompany and stay onsite with groups of children (including birthday parties) under the age of 13.
If at check in, there is not an adult accompanying any child 13 years or younger then the booking will be cancelled without refund or rescheduling.
Rest in Peace Escape Game: There is a minimum age of 18 years old requirement to play our horror-themed escape game, Rest in Peace, and age verification may be requested by staff. No entry will be allowed or refunds provided for participants who can not prove their age. Rest in Peace will open Fall 2020
Will We be Given Clues or Hints During the Game?
Yes, our Game Guides will be monitoring your game and will provide hints upon your request to beat the clock. Our escape room games comes with five Game Guide hints for each room. There are no time deduction penalties for asking for them either.
What if I am Pregnant?
We do not recommend the Mutiny on the Lark escape room for women who are pregnant, as there is the risk of falling due to starting off in the game being in hand manacles in conjunction with the dim lighting while participating. There is an option of choosing to not be manacled such as the other participants are and simply observe your group in their first endeavor of the game play; escape the manacles!
Pregnant players will not be turned away because the decision to play any of our games is ultimately up to your discretion .
