actually locked into the room. Your entrance door always remains unlocked for you to leave through at any time during the
game. All of our rooms are built with emergency switch releases and fire suppression systems. In addition, our Game Masters
are assigned to only one game at a time. So, you have their undivided attention and are monitored at all times during the game.
Prior to game play, your host will explain all emergency exits as they apply to your game. All of our rooms are also fully
sanitized in between each game for the health and safety of our customers.

QUESTION: Can I bring my infant or toddler with me?
ANSWER: Escape rooms are not inherently suitable for infants or toddlers. They are not designed with infants and toddlers in mind and are
not child proof. Escape rooms are an immersive experience, which means that there may be live actors, loud noises, jump
scares, fog or other immersive effects. This can sometimes be too overwhelming for a young child. If an infant or toddler is
present in the group, these immersive effects will not be included in your game, which will alter your experience.
