What are your hours?
In order to help ensure the well-being of our staff and customers, Escape Room 60 is operating at limited capacity during the pandemic. To view game availability, click BOOK NOW.
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 game room to itself.
How much does it cost?
With the shift to completely private bookings, we have been forced to restructure our pricing in order to remain open. Booking a room for up to 4 people will now cost a flat $100 (plus tax). Additional adults will cost $25 and additional children under 10 will cost $15 (plus tax).
What steps is Escape Room 60 taking to minimize the risk of COVID-19?
To reduce the risk of both customers and staff being exposed to COVID-19, Escape Room 60 is taking the following necessary measures:
- Shift from commingled groups to completely private bookings
- Increased time between games to allow for disinfection of high-touch surfaces and locks
- Requirement that customers wear face coverings to ensure our continued ability to remain open
- Requirement that customers use hand sanitizer before entering game rooms
- Encouragement of customers to book and pay online and complete waivers on personal mobile devices prior to entering the facility
- Staggering of game times to minimize interaction between different groups of players
- Elimination of pre-game blindfolds and photo costumes/props
- Relocation of pre-game briefings and post-game photos into private game rooms
- HEPA air filtration in game rooms and common area
- Requirement that staff wear face coverings, check their temperature upon arrival to work, and disinfect hands before and after game reset
- Reconfiguration of facility layout to ensure social distancing of Game Masters
What the heck is an escape room?
Escape rooms are a new form of immersive 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.
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? This is a game. You’re in it to win it!
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.
Is it scary?
Scary? No, we are not trying to frighten you. Intense, fun, and exciting, Yes! Some themes may have just a tiny hint of spooky, but no one will be jumping out to scare you… At Escape Room 60, we use lighting, sound, some confined spaces, and the mounting pressure of time running out, to make sure that all participants leave the room with their pulse pounding.
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.
Am I smart enough?
We work hard to make sure every team member can play a role in every mission. Escape rooms are a team sport. Good communication and collaboration — not high IQs — are the key to success. And if you do get stuck, our game masters are on call to give you a nudge in the right direction.
How long does it take?
Each mission 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 friends, 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!
Do I need to book in advance?
Due to the small size of each mission, Escape Room 60 adventures book up quickly. The best way to ensure you and your friends get the mission and appointment time you want is to sign the waiver and book now using our online booking tool.
What if I’m late for my mission?
Unfortunately, adventure waits for no one. 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 room itself cannot be permitted.
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.
