What is our response to COVID-19?

  • Due to the new mask mandate, masks are optional.

  • Our waiver forms are now done online! Please be sure to read and fill out the forms before your appointment time.  

  • In between games, our staff will continue to disinfect all surface areas and items within the room, ensuring that your game is clean and ready when you arrive. ​

  • We will no longer have a lobby! We are located on the second floor and we will have a large sign that has instructions for our guests!

  • For everyone's safety, we ask our guests to come 15 minutes early and no earlier! 

  • Our games will now all be conducted without being face to face with any of our employees.

  • We will contact you before the game to give more instructions and to clarify that you understand.

  • We have increased the time in between escape games to give more time for the air filters and UV sanitation to clean the air. 

What is an escape room?

An escape room is a physical adventure game where players must use teamwork and creative thinking to escape from the room or achieve their mission within a specified time limit.

The best way to find out how fun an escape room experience is, is to come experience Orange County's #1 Escape Room with your friends, family, co-workers, or date-today!
