Frequently Asked Questions

you have questions, we have answers. Below is a short list of the most commonly asked questions that we get asked here at That Escape Place. However, if your question has not been answered, please contact us at any time, and we would love to help. 

An escape room is a super fun, real life, adventure puzzle game! You’re “locked’ in a room filled with puzzles, clues, hidden codes, locks and keys and everything else you’ll need to break out in under 60 minutes!

1 Escape Room – Minimum of 4 players @ $ per person.
Each additional player: $39.97 (adult) & $34.97 (children 12 & under)

* Large Group (11+) discounts available, contact us for more details.

You can easily book your escape room online or you can call to have someone live help with your booking experience. Call today! 832-241-8898

Yes! Although challenging, you are able to book two or three people for an escape, however, as they are private rooms, we do require a minimum of four tickets to be purchased for any of our rooms. In other words, it’s the same price for two or three people to play.

The majority of our rooms are private and will not be shared with other customers. However, each private room requires a minimum of 4 tickets.

NEW! We have just introduced a new public room now available only on Tuesday at 7pm. Click here for details. Public rooms enable smaller groups to play together instead of
requiring a private room booking with a minimum of 4 people.

We love families! All of our activities are family friendly, with activities/challenges that appeal to a broad range of ages. There is no strict age limit for the game, however, children under 18 will need a liability waiver signed by a parent or guardian, who ideally should be participating in the activity with the child. Children 12 & under will need to be accompanied by a paying adult. Very young children will need some assistance from older players in the room. We would suggest The Terminal for younger groups, before trying The Gate.

We suggest you arrive about 10-15 minutes early to sign in and practice some sample puzzles we have in the lobby.

Allow yourselves about 60 minutes in the room and then about 10 minutes at the end for a team debrief, answering any questions and time to take your complimentary team photos.

Absolutely! We’d love to host a private event for you during our normal hours or we can absolutely open up and have a special event any day throughout the week for you as well. Contact That Escape Place today and we would love to schedule your private party.

Each room is designed to be solved using only what you find in the room, so you won’t need any special equipment or fancy tools. Just come with an eagerness to play and be ready to have some fun! No lock-picks, saws, or explosives, please!

This depends very much on the players, but both experienced and new players will find challenges in our rooms. Each room has a difficulty rating in its description. We don’t assume any experience with other escape rooms to understand our puzzles. That does not mean it is an easy room by any means. Experienced players will find it quite challenging. It is about observation and paying close attention to detail. Also, game masters are available to help with hints as needed.

All of the puzzles range in difficulty from simply searching for a key, all the way to mind-puzzling riddles that may take multiple people to solve. This way, everybody can have fun and can all contribute wherever they feel most comfortable. YOU DON’T NEED TO BE A GENIUS. Everything you need to solve the puzzles is within the room, and no prior knowledge is necessary. Playing the room requires only an open mind, team work, and a desire to have fun! Please let us know if it is your first time and we can give you some extra tips and pointers before you begin. On the other hand, if you are a very experienced escape room player, let us know, so we can keep distracting suggestions to a minimum.
