What is an escape room/escape game/room escape/panic room?
An escape room is a physical adventure game in which players are put in a room and have to use elements in the room to solve a series of puzzles and escape (or accomplish a task) in a set time limit. These are real life versions of the popular online games.
What happens if the zombie touches me?
Don’t get touched by the crawling zombie! If you get touched by the crawling zombie, you will be required to sit and no longer will be permitted to search for clues, but you can still participate verbally. The zombie is chained to a wall and may not roam freely, but the chain is released another foot every five minutes so you better be quick at putting together the clues, solving the puzzles and finding the key that will set you free, otherwise you will be zombie bait.
How many participants are in the session?
The script is written to allow up to 10 people in a session at once. You may be in a session with other people you do not know. The entire group is on the same team working together to escape and not get eaten.
How long will it take?
This depends on how much smarter you are than a zombie! If you do not find all the clues and solve the puzzles that unlock the door within 60 minutes, you will be eaten by a zombie and we will have to remove your body from the room. Allow one and half hours for the entire session for instruction time, a solution explanation and an analysis of your team building traits.
Will I really get eaten if I don’t escape?
Cannibalism has been outlawed since 1804, so the zombie is not legally permitted to eat you.
What should I bring with me?
Your inner Sherlock Holmes and all the sleuthing skills you can muster! You will be using your abilities of perception, deduction, communication, and reasoning to escape. Don’t give up! Keep searching for clues. You are going to have to work fast!
What should I wear?
Be prepared to move around for an hour avoiding the zombie! You should wear clothes that you can move easily in. Shoes should be flat and closed toe. Absolutely no high heeled shoes will be allowed in the room.
Are cell phones permitted?
Cell phones are not allowed to be used in the room. The use of electronic devices or any outside tools are strictly prohibited and you will immediately be removed from the show if you attempt to use them.
What happens if I arrive late?
The door to the room closes exactly at the time you signed up for. Please arrive 15 minutes early to make sure you are there before the room is locked. You will not be permitted into the room if you are late. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.
How old do you have to be?
We do not recommend this show for children under the age of 8. Appetizers…er, guests ages 8-14 must be accompanied by a paying adult in the room. Anyone under the age of 18 must print out and bring a liability release waiver signed by their parent/legal guardian. A minimum of two adults must accompany and stay on site with groups of children (including birthday parties) under the age of 18. Infants and toddlers will not be allowed in the room; zombies do not like baby food.
What if I am pregnant?
We do not recommend this show for women who are pregnant.
What if I am epileptic?
There are no strobe/flashing lights used in the show; however there is a buzzer (similar to a school bell) that rings every 5 minutes and other loud noises that occur over the course of the adrenaline-packed, hour-long show.
What if I need some liquid courage?
People who are drunk are not allowed into the room. If we feel you are too inebriated to participate, you will be asked to leave without a refund. There are many bars around our location where you can toast to your survival after you escape.
Will I need to protect myself with more than my wits?
There are no firearms allowed into the room. Additionally, we have no place to secure weapons on location, so make sure they are locked up and secure elsewhere before you come in.
Can I schedule a private show for just our group?
To reserve an entire session for your group, you need to purchase all 10 tickets at once. Please contact us if there are no session times available with 10 tickets and we will create a special session time for you based on availability.
Can I reschedule/send someone in my place?
Yes, tickets are transferable, so you can have someone else take your spot. If you would like to reschedule, email us at email@example.com with your order number and we may be able to reschedule you.
72+ hours notice: Reschedule to any available time slot.
72-24 hours notice: Rescheduling fee of $10 per ticket.
Less than 24 hours notice: No refunds, no reschedules.
Do the clues in the room change?
As of 9/30/2017 there will be all new puzzles in Trapped In A Room With A Zombie: Brain Harvest. This puzzle set is unique to the current Baltimore and Houston locations. Currently the clues for each room stay the same, but if we do change the clues again or make new rooms we will note it on the website. We also have more rooms! Like us on Facebook for announcements on new escape rooms! Email firstname.lastname@example.org about helping us beta test rooms as we’re developing them.
I went through before and want to try the new puzzles! How do I sign up?
Just purchase tickets for Trapped In A Room With A Zombie for dates on 9/30/2017 or later, and you’re all set! We tried to keep things easy for the zombie. He gets confused easily.
Are you hiring?
We are always looking for hungry zombies and enthusiastic PVGs! If you are interested in acting for us, please submit your resume, head shot, and a brief statement of interest to email@example.com.
