She has left clues around her space as to what it might be as well as it’s cleverly hidden and can only be revealed from solving a series of puzzles . Can you get in and save her treasure in time?

You’ll follow the travels and story of Jane Maryweather as you explore a series of rooms in her stately manor.

Common FAQs

Q: It is scary for kids?

A: Yes we book parties. We generally recommend from ages 8+. Our story and game is a ‘kid friendly’ theme. No one is in the room trying to scare or jump out at you. There is nothing scary, disturbing or frightening in the room. We try to keep the game props and storyline along the lines of a PG movie.

Explanation: We strive to make this a fun experience for the whole family. We try to keep things fun yet mysterious and slightly suspenseful. With that said, some kids do pick up on the intensity of the story or are fearful to get started. We are pretty accustomed to reading everyone’s faces and putting everyone at ease. During our intro we’ll address any concerns as well as reassure anyone who might feel a bit nervous. We provide options to make the room feel a bit less intimidating for anyone who is feeling anxious about it.

 

Q: Is the game too challenging for kids or to easy for my teen/tween?

A: Nope.. not in the ways you would think.

Explanation: Kids are pretty smart these days. They’re reading mystery novels, programming arduinos and have active imaginations. We find that kids do really well of thinking outside of the box and playing escape games. For certain age groups, we do set the puzzles a bit easier allowing more prompting for our younger players but there isn’t too much we need to change around even compared to our adult only groups. We find what works best is to allow for the parents/caregivers to play alongside of the kids. This allows for any potential help that the groups might face. What usually holds up our birthday parties is just not being organized or not communicating clearly. The adults are great for keeping the kids on track as well as helping them open or operating items they might not be familiar with.

For teens and tweens, keep in mind that our games are designed for adult groups as well. Nothing is juvenile or cartoony in terms of decor. They won’t find our game childish or easy by any means. Even our adult only groups are challenged enough in the game!

 

Q: What is the maximum size of children allowed?

A: 12 kids, 2 adults (some flexibility on that)

Explanation: We try to ensure that each team and each individual within their team has the best possible experience playing our game. While the game is very collaborative, individual experiences are also just as important. We have a large game space as well as many puzzles in the game so we can accommodate a large group. With that said, we try to cap each game with 12-14 players to ensure that the game runs at an ideal pace. If you have more players in mind, there is the option to run 2 games at the same time or back to back games. We have planned much larger events consisting of 30-40 children. Please contact us if you’re thinking of a larger party or event. 

Almost more important than numbers of players are the dynamics of each group. Older kids around ages 12+ can play the game more independently while younger kids will need the help of adults. A minimum of 2 adults are required to play the game alongside of each party or 1 supervising adult and a guide.

 

Q: But my kids and their friends are really smart? Can’t the kids just play on their own?

A: We always require 1 supervising adult for groups under 13 years of age. We will send in your party with 1 supervising adult and 1 gamemaster to help out in the the game if you prefer.

Explanation: The game is supervised by our gamemasters who normally sit outside of the game area. We allow unlimited hints via our hint system during the game so no one is frustrated during the game for longer than they should be. We control the mood, pace and dynamics of the game from behind the scenes. We will send in a gamemaster to help out younger kids in the game if required.

 

Q:  Is there a place for pizza and cake?

A:  Yes!

Explanation:  Our updated space has a large party room. We have seats for 20 people. We have a full fridge to store your food as well as your cake and/or ice cream cake. We include cutlery, plates, napkins and cups. Everything else you’ll need to bring. It is at a cost of $65 plus tax and follows your game for 45 minutes– bringing the birthday party to a 2 hour adventure.

Q: How do I book? What if I am not sure who is attending?

A: Book Online or by calling. Paying a deposit to just secure your booking is fine.

You are welcome to view our calendar online to check availability. You may continue to book online using our reservation system. We recommend using the comments field to fill in some information about your event. Ideally we’d like to get a picture of what you’re celebrating, how many people will be in attendance, age range of kids playing as well as any past experience you might have had with escape games. This allows us to prepare for staffing the day of the games as well as allowing us to set the room based on the number of players playing and level of challenge. If you are unsure of who will be playing, please just book what you have in mind. We only hold your credit card on file and you may pay for everyone prior to your game. If you have further questions please don’t hesitate to contact us (647) 498-5596 or email
