Is There An Age Limit?
Yes, many escape rooms are designed with adults in mind. This means the puzzles are meant to be challenging and many young children cannot make all the connections required.
Anyone under the age of 8 CANNOT participate. Players under the age of 16 must be accompanied by at least one paying adult. No exceptions!
If you are booking the themed room, The Hangover, no one under the age of 18 is allowed in the room.
Do I Need to Bring Anything With Me?
No! Everything you need to solve the puzzle is provided in the room. Wear something comfortable and if you need reading glasses, we highly suggest you bring them. Please do not bring any type of tool or lighter with you. Once again, we promise that everything you need is provided within the game room. There is never a reason to tear anything apart or destroy our puzzles or props.
Cell phones are not recommended or required in any of the rooms. We suggest turning them off for the hour. It's always nice to get off the grid for awhile! Pictures or video within the rooms is prohibited. If this or any other rules are violated, you will be escorted from the room immediately with no refund. The Great Escape Zone and staff reserves the right to refuse anyone for any reason.
Can I Bring Food, Drinks, Alcohol, or Drugs With Me?
No! Food and beverages are not allowed in any of the escape rooms. This is to prevent any messes or spills that could ruin the experience for another group.
As some may believe, Escape rooms are NOT more fun with mind altering substances. You'll really need all your wits about you to solve these puzzles. The Great Escape Zone and staff reserves the right to refuse anyone who appears to be under the influence of drugs and alcohol with no refund.
Can I Cancel or Reschedule? What Happens If I'm Late?Refund/Cancellation Policy?
For late parties, as a courtesy to those who arrive 15 minutes early and start their experience on time, any customer arriving more than 5 minutes after their scheduled escape room experience starts (in a shared experience) will not be permitted to enter the experience that has already begun. Instead, the customers will be offered entry into the next available escape room or will be able to book for another date/time.
For parties with a full room booking, the clock for your room starts at your booking time. If you are late to your booking, then you will not get the full 60 minutes to escape the room. Instead, you will have whatever remaining time is on the clock from your arrival time.
For anyone who needs to reschedule or would like to cancel their reservation, you must re-book or cancel at least 24 hours in advance. You will be able to re-book for the day and time of your choice or receive a full refund. Any groups that fail to cancel with 24-hour advance notice will NOT be allowed to reschedule or receive a refund. We would like to thank everyone in advance for their understanding.
How Long Does It Last? What Happens If I Don't Escape in Time?
Plan to spend about 90 minutes at The Great Escape Zone.
Please arrive at The Great Escape Zone 15 minutes prior to your scheduled escape room experience. This will allow for a bathroom break, filling out any paperwork, and a short introduction to the escape room experience.
You will have up to 60 minutes to escape from your room. If you escape before 60 minutes, great job! That's an amazing feat! If you don't escape in time, that's okay too. Don't worry, we'll let you out!
The last 15 minutes will be spent answering questions you may have about the room, walking you through the rest of the puzzles, and taking some really fun pictures!
Am I Really Locked Inside A Room?
No! As a safety precaution, we cannot lock you in the room. Therefore, the main door is always unlocked in case of an emergency. You can exit the game at any time. You will need to find the key or code to win though!
Is It Scary?
No, none of our rooms are scary! We want to make sure we appeal to as many people as possible. There are no jump scares, scary noises, monsters, actors, or any other type of scary things.
Where Are You Located? Is There Parking?
