FAQ’S – Northwest Indiana's 1st Real Escape Game
Am I really locked in a room?

As much as we would like to, the silly firemarshall says it’s a bad idea. You will be able to leave through the door you entered in case of emergency, but that is not the way to escape the room. If you retreat or give up, you sit in the corner until the rest of the team finishes… ok not really.

Are phones and cameras allowed?

We do NOT allow phones and cameras to be used inside the game. This is a strict rule, but hey… shouldn’t you put your phones away for an hour anyway? You’ll actually get to talk to people

Can I change my reservations?

We schedule our games based on people showing up. If you contact us 24 hours prior to the game, we can reschedule you to another open time slot in the future. Please note that bookings are non-refundable. We will try to work with you to reschedule if absolutely necessary and you give us ample notice.

Do I need special skills to play?

No, the game is about creative thinking, teamwork, and looking at things from a unique perspective. The game is not physically challenging.

Do you do special events like parties and corporate team competitions?

Yes, we can try to provide special scheduling for group outings/parties or corporate team building events. Our facility does not have catering or conference rooms, but there are many restaurants and meeting places very nearby. Please contact us via email or phone (219) 595-9197 to discuss your needs. We will try to accommodate your group.

How do I book and pay?

Please book your game and pay online through our Book Now link or the Bookings tab. When you are on the Bookings page, first select the number of participants in your party then select the date and time. If you are planning a larger team builder or special event that you need handled outside our normal business hours, please Email us at info@escaperoomnwi.com or call (219) 595-9197.

Is this a good corporate team building exercise?

YES! This is a fantastic opportunity to work as a team. Communication and teamwork are critical to success in the game. Utilizing the different strengths of the group is key. Communicating discoveries, organizing clues and working towards a common goal will result in success. Escape Room NWI is a superb team building exercise.

Is this scary?

No, this is not a scary experience. It’s about teamwork, using your wits, and having a blast!

What are the recommended ages?

The games are designed for people 12 years and older. The clues and puzzles are meant to challenge participants. Children under 12 can still play and have fun, but younger children need to be accompanied by an adult and we require the room to be fully booked by your party.

What happens if I’m late?

Please don’t be late. Games must start on schedule as there may be players booked in the game immediately after yours. Late arrivals are not refunded. Please arrive 15 minutes early to check in and get a game briefing.

What is the price?

$24.95 to $27.95 per person depending on game for a ton of engaging fun!

What should I bring to play?

Dress comfortably and bring your wits. No special preparation is required.

When should I arrive?

Please allow an hour and a half for the full experience. You need to arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled start time. Once the game starts, your team will have one hour to try to escape. We suggest planning to spend another 15 minutes after the game to debrief, celebrate your triumphs, and take photos.

Will other people be in the room?

Due to concerns with Covid-19, bookings will be private games and no other players outside your group will be in the game with you. There will be minimum booking requirements to book a game. In order to book a game, we require a minimum of four participants be booked in the game to reserve the game. If you only have two or three players, we will still require a minimum of four spots be reserved to confirm a private booking.
