Want to Know How to Escape the Room?

We can’t give you the secrets that are locked away behind the door, but this FAQ does offer valuable escape room tips and tricks.

What Is An Escape Game And How Do You Play Escape The Room?

If you’ve ever played a board game and wondered what it would be like to be in a real world, interactive version that’s an escape room. Participants are locked in a room and have an hour to get out. The escape room’s life-like setting is completely immersive once you’re inside. You have to use that good ole grey matter to find clues and solve puzzles in order to successfully complete the challenges and escape the room before the clock runs out.

Afraid of getting trapped? Our game hosts can offer 2-3 escape room solutions to help move the game along. You can’t ask “what is this escape room answer”, but a clue or two can make a difference.

Extreme Escape takes it to the next level by incorporating multi-dimensional elements, life size props, hands-on props, theatrical lighting, sounds and smells (yes, smells). Everything works together to collectively captivate the senses and provide an amazing experience that will make all other game nights seem weak by comparison!

Will We Be Physically Locked In?

Don’t let your claustrophobia keep you from experiencing the fun! For the safety and enjoyment of all players, a participant may exit a live room escape game at any time if things get too real. Keep in mind, once you exit you can’t re-enter. 

How To Get Out Of A Locked Escape Room?

The objective of an escape room game is to get out before the clock runs out, but finding an escape isn’t always easy. Many groups get close but come up a little short of escaping.

You can escape the room one of two ways:

  1. Solve the Clues – Use your wits, critical thinking and communication skills to work with the other players and solve the clues. Solve them all before the clock strikes zero and the locked escape room will open.
  2. Ask to Leave – You might not be able to walk right out the door of a locked room escape game, but that doesn’t mean you’re trapped inside for an hour. You can ask to leave at any time. Just remember, once you leave you can’t re-enter the locked escape room.

What Ages Can Play A Live Room Escape Game?

Extreme Escape welcomes players of all ages. Our attractions are designed for players that are 12 and older, but younger players can get in on the action of the less intense escape rooms. Don’t underestimate younger players – you never know when their smaller hands will come in handy.

How Many Players Can Participate?

Rooms are designed to allow 6-10 players to band together with a single purpose - getting out in time. Couples and single players are welcome; you don’t need a full group of players in order to participate. We’ll hook up small groups of players so that everyone has a great experience. Keep in mind the rooms are fully immersive and part of the experience is using everyone’s strengths — including strangers — to beat the clock and escape.

Can Our Group Play Alone?

Currently all games are PRIVATE at Extreme Escape. You will not be paired with other guests or strangers during your visit and Escape Room experience.

What Is The Price?

1-4 Players = $39.99 per person

5+ Players = $35.99 per person 

When Do I Need To Arrive?

You don’t want to show up late for a game that’s all about beating the clock. All “escapers” should arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled game.

What If I Need To Reschedule?

Games can be rescheduled within 24 hours of booking. To reschedule please call Colonnade 210-641-2828 or Stone Oak 210-402-3722.

Now that you know the whole deal it’s time to see if you have what it takes to escape!
