The Crash escape room

We’ll bring the lab to you.  You supply the brains!

Escape The Mobile Lab is a bite size version of a room escape where groups of 2-5 people at time can come take a tour of our research facility and participate in a small experiment. Unfortunately, something has gone wrong and a terrifying laboratory accident is beating at the door to eat you! You have just 3 minutes to finish the experiment and escape out the back!

Great for parties, mixers, conferences, and anywhere else with brains to spare! We recommend the Mobile Lab for events with 60 or more people. Click HERE for more info.

  • This escape room runs all year long. Show times and tickets are available at least three months in advance. If you would like to reserve an entire show that is not listed please email

  • PLEASE show up 15 minutes before your performance to sign a waiver and mentally prepare to escape. Once the doors are locked they will not open again until someone escapes or we need to remove bodies.

  • The maximum amount of people allowed in a show is 10. Shows are made up of individuals and groups. If you do not purchase an entire show, you will be working with strangers as a team to escape the room.

  • The minimum age to participate is 8 years old with a paying adult participant.  Children must be 14 years or older to participate without an adult. All participants under the age of 18 must print out and provide a signed copy of our liability release waiver. Participants under 14 years old can participate, but you must be accompanied by a paying adult and purchase a ticket.

  • We do not have designated parking for room escape participants. However, there is street parking that is free after 6 pm and all day on Sunday. There are also many surface lots in the immediate area on all four sides of our building.  The City of Houston’s street parking takes credit card via pay machine and some private pay lots do as well.  The small lot attached to our building (directly to the right on the Southeast side) is reserved for employees of the building only and is subject to towing.

We are on the second floor of the Texas Direct Auto building with a mural of Mars on it.
