Frequently Asked Questions
What is an escape room?
It is a live-action problem solving game in which participants use teamwork and elements of the room to find clues and solve a series of puzzles to escape within a set time limit.
Is it scary?
No. “The Audition” is set in the backstage “green room” and “The Ramblin Rogue” is set in an 1880’s Western saloon. Nothing scary about that. There may be a few surprises but neither is a fear-based experience.
How many can play?
“The Audition” can accommodate a group of players from 2 to 8. “The Ramblin’ Rogue Saloon” accommodates groups of 4 to 8 players. If you have a larger group, please contact us at (541) 613-6488 for special arrangements. We recommend a team challenge which allows two groups to play back-to-back to vie for the best time.
Will I be grouped with other players?
No. Once you book the room, it is a private booking. You are welcome to book the minimum and bring additional players up to the maximum limit. If you are a duo looking to play the Ramblin Rogue, please call us at 541.613.6488 to be paired with another team of two.
What are the age limits?
All ages are welcome, but groups with players age 12 or younger require accompaniment by one adult.
I get claustrophobic. Am I really locked in a room?
No worries. You have access to an exit (and a restroom at The Audition) at all times.
How long does it take to play?
Please allow for 90 minutes: 15 minutes for introduction, 60 minutes of game play, and 15 minutes for photos and debriefing. If you arrive more than 10 minutes late, we may not be able to accommodate your group. Also, please do not arrive more than 10 minutes early as the prior group will still be debriefing.
What if I don’t succeed?
We recognize that finding your way out of the room is the most exhilarating step in an escape room. Our game masters are available to offer clues or reassurance that your team is on the right path.
How can I get my group’s name on the record board?
Groups that complete the room without clues are eligible to be listed on our hall of fame board.
Do I need to have special knowledge to succeed?
Everything you need to escape will be in the room and no prior knowledge or experience is necessary. Teamwork and observation skills are essential. Remember, there is no “I” in escape!
Is it a challenging game physically?
There are no physical challenges and the game can be played from a wheelchair. Use of force or taking apart furniture is a definite no-no and will not help you solve the room.
