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.
How many can play?
“The Ramblin’ Rogue Saloon” can accommodate groups of 2 to 8 players and “The Scottish Play” can accommodate 2 to 7 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.
What if none of the times listed works for my schedule?
Call us at 541.613.6488 to see if we can arrange a game time that works for you and your group. With a bit of advance notice, we can usually make it happen.
Is it scary?
“The Scottish Play” is set in an old theater with elements from MacBeth without the blood and gore. “The Ramblin Rogue” is set in an 1880’s Western saloon. Nothing scary about that. There may be a few surprises but neither game is a fear-based experience.
What are the age limits?
All ages are welcome, but groups with players age 12 or younger may require accompaniment by one adult, depending on the game and group. Please call 541-613-6488 to discuss.
I get claustrophobic. Am I really locked in a room?
Our rooms are surprisingly spacious and we have never had a player become claustrophobic; however, you can exit at any time.
How long does it take to play?
Please allow for 75 minutes: 5 minutes for introduction, 60 minutes of game play, and 10 minutes for photos and debriefing. If you arrive more than 15 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 and our staff needs time to reset the room.
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.
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 Ramblin Rogue 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.
How much does it cost?
Pricing is based on a per-person sliding scale.
Groups of 2: $40 per person; groups of 3-4: $30 per person; Groups of 5 -6: $28 per person; groups of 7 to 8: $25 per person.
Children 8 and under are free.
Large groups of 10 or more: call for special rates.
