These questions apply to all 3 locations. Each location has it's own FAQ page with information specific to itself.

What is this?

The Basement is a live Escape Room experience. We specialize in unique and thrilling, heavily themed puzzle solving adventures. Our brave guests are locked inside of a story with the goal of discovering clues and unraveling secrets to solve their way to safety.

What is an escape room?

An escape room is an immersive, interactive experience where guests are locked in a room filled with puzzles, clues, and hidden items, with one goal in mind: ESCAPE! Or in our case, SURVIVE! Click here for a more detailed description of what an escape room is!

Wait, is this a haunted house?

No, at an escape room, the guests (or victims) are an active part of the experience; we ask a little more of you than to merely walk through a spooky maze. To complete your objectives before the clock ticks down to zero, you will need to engage with the room and its contents.

How much do escape rooms cost?

Depending on how many people are in your party and what day of the week you want to do the escape room, prices will vary. The most common price point is $36 per person with a 2-person minimum and an 8-person maximum for team sizes.

How long does an escape room last?

Escape rooms can take anywhere from 45 minutes to over an hour. Please contact us by clicking here if you would like more information about a certain escape room and its difficulty level.

What is an escape room like?

It's like a real life video game. You and your friends will be immersed in the story we've created for you and you'll have to use critical thinking skills, teamwork, and logic in order to succeed.

Are these experiences scary?

Yes and No. Our focus is to create an immersive and fun, puzzle-driven experience for our guests. That being said, the stories we tell through our games contain horror elements and can be considered frightening or upsetting. We don’t rely on cheap jump-scares or gorey shock-factors. We instead create a creeping sense of unease, that anything may happen when you walk into the dark.

What if I get too scared?

If at any time during your experience, you no longer wish to participate, you are welcome to leave your game. We pride ourselves on our empathetic and kind staff who are prepared to assist with any spooked guests. Please note that no refunds or reschedules will be available to guests who tap out of their experience.

Are you really locked in an escape room?

Of course! You don't want it any other way, right? The doors are locked from the moment your game begins. For the comfort and safety of our guests, there are “Panic Buttons” located near the entry door to each room. If pressed, these buttons will automatically unlock the doors so that you may exit the room safely.

What should I wear or bring an escape room?

We recommend that you dress in regular clothes. Most people wear jeans and a t-shirt but you can dress however you want!
