What the heck is an escape room?

Escape rooms are a new form of immersive entertainment where customers aren’t just spectators — they are the heroes in their own adventure. Trapped in one of three mission-themed theatrical sets,  members of your team must work together to find clues, crack codes, solve puzzles, and unlock the story before your time runs out.

What if it’s too hard?

Our stories, sets, and  puzzles are designed to make sure every team member can play a role in every mission, regardless of age. And if you do get stuck, our game masters will be helping the story unfold behind the scenes, watching your every move and triggering sound, lighting and visual clues to give you a nudge in the right direction.

Do I need to book in advance?

This is a live ticketed event, and, due to the small size of each mission, Escape Room 60 adventures book up quickly. The best way to ensure you get the showtime your team wants is available is to buy tickets in advance. Tickets can also be purchased in person at our South Burlington location.

Is it scary?

Scary? No. Intense, fun, and exciting? Yes! At Escape Room 60 we use a variety theatrical lighting, music and sound effects, to make your experience as immersive as possible without being scary.

What are your hours?

In order to help ensure the well-being of our game masters and customers, Escape Room 60 is operating at an extremely limited capacity during the pandemic, with showtimes for our three adventures staggered throughout the day.

Wait, did you say “trapped”?

Well, not trapped for real… Pretend trapped. Participants can leave the room at any time. But what fun is that?

What if I’m late for my mission?

Unfortunately, adventure waits for no one. The show must go on. Missions must commence at the scheduled time. If you hurry, you might only miss the beginning of the mission briefing. But due to the nature of our scenarios, late entrance into the story space cannot be permitted.

Will my group get put in a room with strangers?

No! Given health concerns related to COVID-19, Escape Room 60 has shifted to private bookings only. Your team will have the entire set to itself.

How much does it cost?

The cost to play is a flat $99 for teams of 2 or 3 people. For teams larger than 3, the price changes to $28 per person, plus tax.

Bring the kids or hire a sitter?

Escape Room 60 was built with families in mind. Kids have a great spirit of adventure, are great at finding clues, and love to feel like part of the team. Note that all adventurers 12-years-old or younger must be accompanied by an adult parent or guardian in the room. Children must be six or older to play.

Will prior knowledge be needed to solve puzzles?

No, all of our clues can be solved from clues found within the room. However, you will have to depend on the help of your teammates and problem solving skills to escape.

How long does it take?

Each experience lasts approximately 60 minutes.

When should I arrive?

Arrive early, but not too early – 10 minutes should do the trick. In order to ensure social distancing of different groups, we may request that a group wait outside the facility until all parties arrive.

What should I bring?

Just bring your team, your sense of adventure, and your winning spirit. If you need reading glasses you will probably want to bring them too as some rooms feature dim lighting. But please leave your smartphone in your pocket or purse during the course of the game— Google won’t help you!

What if I need to reschedule?

Call us 48 hours in advance and we’ll work with you to reschedule for a new time. Note that because every slot you book is a slot that cannot be booked by someone else, we are unable to issue refunds for last-minute rebooking or no shows.

Can I still participate if I have mobility issues or a disability?

Absolutely. There’s plenty of fun for everyone. Escape Room 60 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.
