IMPORTANT Changes and Updates
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AS OUR BOOKING OPTIONS HAVE CHANGED!
- Weekdays (Wednesday, Thursday) our games will automatically be PRIVATE, meaning it will be only the players you book for in the game with you.
- Weekends (Friday, Saturday & Sunday) games will automatically be PUBLIC, meaning there is the possibility that other players may join you.
- If you would prefer to have a private game, simply check the option when booking your game. There will be an additional charge of $10 per empty spot. E.g. If you book for 2 players in a 6 player game on a Saturday, the cost will be $31 per player, plus $10 each for the 4 remaining spots bringing your total to $102 for a private game.
- By selecting the BOOK ENTIRE GAME option, you are simply blocking out the remaining spots in the game to stop strangers from joining you. If you would like to bring additional players to your game, payment for the remaining balance will be due upon arrival.

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.

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.
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.
