Event Details

You and up to 11 other adventurers will be physically trapped in a room with a Zombie that is chained to a wall!  Hidden in the room is a key that will unlock the door to your freedom.  To find the key you must locate numerous clues and solve riddles.  Every five minutes the chain the hungry zombie is attached to will be released another foot.  Within an hour, the Zombie will be able to reach you.  You have 60 minutes to the find clues, solve the puzzles, unlock the door and escape the room without getting eaten!  Are you smarter than a Zombie?  Find out!

ROOM ESCAPE ADVENTURES brings to life the mental challenges and adventure of online Escape Games, the pressure of Minute To Win It and the sleuthing of Sherlock Holmes to create pulse pounding experiences that will have your mind racing and adrenaline flowing.  Bring some friends and prepare to see a side of them you may not have seen before while you laugh, fret and beam with pride as you work together solving riddles and racing against the clock to escape!

This event is ideal for:
*A Team Building Function.  If you don't work together, you won't escape!
*The Coolest Date Night Ever!
*An Exciting Family Outing
*Crazy Fun With Friends!

*This show is not a physical event and is appropriate for all ages.  This is an exciting, fun event designed as a mental challenge.  If you are afraid of the Zombie, just stay away from it. The show is not written to be scary, but it does pack ample amounts of adrenaline into 60 minutes.

What happens if the Zombie touches me?
Don't get touched by the crawling Zombie!  If you get touched by the crawling zombie, you will be required to sit and no longer will be permitted to search for clues, but you can still participate verbally.  The Zombie is chained to a wall and may not roam freely, but the chain is released another foot every five minutes so you better be quick at putting together the clues, solving the riddles and finding the key that will set you free, otherwise you will be Zombie bait.

How many people can be in a room at once?
The most we allow to make an attempt at once is 12 people.  You do not need 12 people to sign up with you to participate.  You can sign up alone or in groups, but only up to 12 people will be in a room at one time.

What if I want to be in the room with just my friends and no one else?
You must buy out all 12 tickets if you don't want any other escapers to participate with you.

How long will it take?
This depends on how much smarter you are then a Zombie!  If you do not find all the clues and solve the puzzles that unlock the door within 60 minutes, you will be eaten by a Zombie and we will have to remove your body from the room.  Allow one and half hours for the entire adventure for instruction time and a solution explanation.

Will I really get eaten if I don't escape?
Cannibalism has been outlawed since 1804, so the Zombie is not legally permitted to  eat you.

What should I bring with me?

Your inner Sherlock Holmes and all the sleuthing skills you can muster!  The clues, riddles and puzzles will require no previous trivia knowledge for the most part.  You will be using your ability to look for clues, figure out logic and apply deductive reasoning to escape. Don't give up!  Keep searching for clues. You are going to have to work fast!

Are cell phones permitted?
Cell phones are not allowed to be used in the room.  The use of electronic devices or any outside tools are strictly prohibited and you will immediately be removed from the show if you attempt to use them.

What happens if I arrive late?
The door to the room closes exactly at the time you signed up for.  Please arrive 15 minutes early to make sure you are there before the room is locked.  You will not be permitted into the room if you are late.  THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.

How old do you have to be?
You must be 14 years or older to participate without an adult.  If you are under the age of 18 you must print out and have your parents sign a liability release waiver.  CLICK HERE.  If you are under 14 years older you can participate, but you must be accompanied by a paying adult and purchase a ticket.



#1.  DON’T JUST STAND THERE!  There are clues scattered throughout the room. Move, touch, pull, turn, twist and open as many things as you can to find clues.

#2. SHARE YOUR FINDINGS.  The only way to solve the puzzles and escape is to put all of the clues together.  A safe may take two or three clues to open.  Gather your clues in one spot and work as collaborative unit with the other adventurers to come up with solutions.

#3. LET SOMEONE ELSE TRY. If a participant thinks that they have the correct answer and a clue will not open…..THEY HAVE THE WRONG ANSWER OR THEY ENTERED IT IN WRONG!   Have someone else try it.  The riddles are obvious to some people and appear impossible to others.    Have everyone give the riddle a shot.  This will be one of your best tips to escape!

#4. STAY AWAY FROM THE ZOMBIE.  The Zombie is hungry and he wants to eat you.  He is chained to a wall, but don’t get near him. If the Zombie touches you, you will have to sit and no longer will be permitted to search for clues, but you can still participate mentally.

#5. DON’T GIVE UP!   The participants that get eaten stop looking for clues, stop trying different combinations and believe they can’t figure it out.  Keep entering in numbers, keep looking at the riddle and keep trying any possible combination.  The worst thing you can do is “NOTHING”.  Keep moving, keep looking, keep trying and never give up!

* Cell phones & tools are strictly prohibited during the event. If you use a cell phone, tool or any outside device during the event you will be escorted from the room immediately.

* PLEASE arrive 15 minutes before your selected performance to sign release forms and mentally be prepare for your adventure. Once the door to the room is locked, it will not be reopened until participants escape or we remove their bodies.  THERE ARE NO REFUNDS NOR CREDITS TOWARD FUTURE PERFORMANCES.


* DO NOT LET THE ZOMBIE TOUCH YOU! If the Zombie touches or bites you, you must sit in the corner of the room and will be no longer allowed to search for clues, but you can participate verbally.

* DO NOT BREAK THINGS!  Locks and drawers will open if you have the correct combination.  If something is not opening, do not break it to get it open.

* Children under 14 will need to accompanied by a paying adult.
