Escape rooms are real life immersive 'beat the clock' experiences, in which teams enter a themed room that contains a complex series of puzzles and challenges to achieve a common goal. All of this must be done within a time limit of 1 hour.
Patrons don’t escape the room; the roomisthe escape. It is a chance for everyone to unplug from technology and reconnect with friends, family and colleagues.
Do you need to get your team out of the office for some fun? You'd be surprised how much productivity increases after some bonding. Our team-building packages are designed to engage the player in:
Not to mention, it’s an experience they’ll be talking about for a long time afterwards and you’ll be the coolest boss ever!
A: Escape rooms are a new form of interactive brain teasing based entertainment rapidly gaining popularity around the world. Trapped in a themed room, your team must work together to find clues, crack codes and solve mind puzzles to complete your mission before your time runs out.
A: The short answer is NO. However, our escape rooms are designed for continuous game play. If any one or more of your party need to leave the room at any time you are free to do so. Please remember that the timer does not stop until you have solved all of the puzzles and 'escaped' the room or time runs out.
A: Our escape rooms are designed to be solved within one hour. Our adventures are designed to be completed in the nick of time by teams of 4-6 people depending on the room.
A: If you get stuck, you can ask for a hint from our staff - we want you to have fun. If you don't finish in time, we'll simply end the game.
A: We currently have two rooms available. Our Murder! mystery is designed for four participants and our Captain's Quarters adventure is designed for six participants.
A: Although you are encouraged to use the restroom prior to starting the game, you are free to leave the room as you please. Please remember that the timer does not stop until you have solved all of the puzzles and 'escaped' the room or time runs out.
A: You are prohibited from carrying any electronic or recording devices (phones, recording devices, smart watches, etc.) into the rooms unless it is for medical reasons. Lockers are provided for you to securely store your personal belongings if needed.
A: As many of our clues require reading you may need to bring your reading glasses or ensure at least one member of your group can read the clues aloud. Otherwise you do not need to bring anything with you other than positive attitude and a willingness to have fun and to work with others!
A: You might. Our adventures are designed to be completed in the nick of time by teams of 4-6 people depending on the room. The more players, the better your odds of escape. Smaller parties may be put in with other guests. Of course, you always have the option to book all of the open slots in any given mission.
A: Make sure your team arrives 15 minutes before your scheduled mission begins to allow time for checking in, mission briefing and filling out waivers (we make you promise not to do anything crazy or break our cool stuff). Your game will start right on time.
Being late will cause you to have less than the allotted time to play. We run a tight
schedule and cannot allow other guests' reservations to be impacted.
A: Absolutely. There’s plenty of fun for everyone. EscapeNEOhio is ADA compliant. That said, a number of our puzzles are audiovisual in nature, so teamwork will be required if participants are vision or hearing impaired.
A: No. We do not offer refunds (possibility of rescheduling at our discretion).
A: No, there are no monsters or zombies at our place. Our escape rooms are not confining or an issue if claustrophobic. We carefully design our rooms to be enjoyed by everyone.
