IMPORTANT Changes and Updates: COVID-19 (Please Read)

Effective 05/21/2022
Due to the ongoing pandemic, there have been some changes made to our policies. Please read to ensure you haven’t missed any important information. This (and more!) information is listed in more detail in the Terms and Conditions and the Waiver.



  • In consideration for all patrons and employees, it is not required, but is appreciated that players wear a cloth face covering to enter Exchange Place. We recommend you wear your mask in our lobby and any time you are in contact with your Game Master. If you arrive without a mask, but would prefer to wear one, Live Action Escapes will have disposable masks available for purchase ($1 ea).
  • Masks are not required in the game rooms. We are still sanitizing in between each group.


  • By putting your names in the reservation, you are stating that everyone has read and agrees to the terms & conditions as well as the Waiver.


  • We have removed some of the non-essential décor in the games 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.


  • 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.


  • Hand sanitizer will be available to everyone upon entry.

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.

When available, Cartoon Takeover! is only for kids 5-9 years old.

Anyone under the age of 16 MUST be accompanied by a paying adult. If all players are over the age of 16, an adult over 18 is not required. If your group arrives without an adult, you will be turned away without a refund or credit.

Will I have to solve the escape room with strangers?

All of our games are automatically private.
This means that it will only be you and the other members of your reservation in the game with you.

Who designs the rooms? Are they scary?

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.


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 walk either up or down a small flight of stairs (5-7 steps) to enter  any of our games.

Intoxicated Patrons

NOTE: If you show up under the influence of any mind-altering substance, the game master can turn you away without a refund. We will not be responsible for putting you, other players, or our team at risk in any way.
