The Owners of Live Action Escapes: Amanda, Mike and Sabrina



You may have seen escape games featured on a reality TV show or in a movie, but now you can experience the fun in person!

Each of our escape games has a different theme to explore, with different puzzles, riddles & mysteries to solve.

Search the room to locate clues that will help you solve them and win the game.

It’s up to you to work together with your team to solve the mystery and escape before time runs out!

Can you make it, or will you be defeated by the clever Puzzlemaster?

However, by making your reservation, you are confirming that you and everyone in your party have read and agreed to the Terms and Conditions as well as the Waiver.

Are The Doors Really Locked?

Yes (and no). All games that have a locked door also have a second unlocked door in case of an emergency.

Our games listed as ‘Easy’ and ‘Moderate’ are designed for ages 8 and up. Games listed as ‘Challenging’ are recommended for ages 10 and up. However we are more than happy to have kids of all ages in any of our games.

Will I have To Solve The Escape Room With Strangers?

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are PRIVATE games, which means it will be only those on your reservation in the game with you.
Saturday and Sunday are PUBLIC games, which means if you do not upgrade to a private game, there is the possibility that others may join you.

Who Designs The Rooms? Are They Scary?

WE DO! All of the rooms, puzzles, and story lines at Live Action Escapes are designed and built by our in-house design team, led by the owners. Our rooms offer unique experiences that you won’t find at escape rooms in other locations. The games are designed to be mysterious and sometimes creepy, but there is nothing dangerous or scary unless otherwise noted.

In order to enter our location, you will have to travel down a set of stairs to our hallway.
When you enter our business’ suit, we are located in a split level. The Lobby and one of our games is located on the bottom floor (down another set of stairs) and two of our games are located on the top floor (up from the lobby stairs, and up another set of stairs).

If anyone in your party requires special accommodations, please let us know in advance. We may offer an alternate entrance and may be able to change the check-in and instructions location to help suit your needs.

Please be advised that you will HAVE TO travel either up or down a small flight of stairs (5-7 steps) to enter any of our games.
