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.

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! If you would like a more detailed description, check out our blog post on the subject!

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.

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.

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.

Yes, 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.
