IMPORTANT Changes and Updates due to COVID-19 (Please Read)

Due to the pandemic, there have been some changes made to how you book your game as well as some of our policies. Please read to ensure you haven’t missed any important information. This information is listed in more detail in the Terms and Conditions and the Waiver.


  • To comply with Massachusetts state law, everyone will be required to wear a cloth face covering for the entire length of their visit. These masks are NOT provided, however Live Action Escapes will have a limited number of disposable masks available for sale for anyone that does not have one. If you are unable, or unwilling to wear a face covering, please do not make a reservation. You will be refused entry without a refund or credit


  • Live Action Escapes is requiring that everyone wear (non-latex) gloves for the duration of their game. These will be provided to you by your Game Master. We have also removed some of the non-essential decor in the game (as well as our signs in the lobby) to lessen the number of high touch surfaces you will encounter during your visit. This includes things like blankets and other porous contact surfaces that would be difficult to thoroughly sanitize between groups.


  • The biggest change has been made to our games schedule and how you book.
    We are currently offering a limited schedule to ensure our employees have enough time in between groups to thoroughly clean and sanitize the games and lobby spaces. This is to ensure your safety as well as the safety of our staff. You can check out the “How Do I Book An Escape Room” section for more details.


  • Please call us once everyone in your party has arrived, at least 5 minutes prior to your games start time listed on your reservation. Your Game Master will come to escort you to our location. This is to ensure that all previous players have vacated and the rooms have been cleaned and sanitized before you enter.


  • At this time there are NO PUBLIC RESTROOMS available. Please plan accordingly.
    Hand sanitizer will be available to everyone upon entry.


We know this is a lot of new information, so feel free to call us if you need help or would like more information about these changes: (508) 753-1856

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 owner. 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.
