Frequently Asked Questions
What are escape games?
Escape games (or escape rooms) are live action adventure games where you and your fellow players have an hour to break out of a room by finding clues, cracking codes, deciphering riddles, and completing puzzles. Each Nick of Time Escape Room has a unique theme and storyline with specific puzzles wrapped into that storyline. The time it takes to solve each room varies greatly from group to group, with some groups not complete the challenge at all. Working together as a team will increase your chances of successfully completing each room, so find some smart friends and bring them along.
What time should my group arrive?
Nick of Time Escapes requires all members of all groups to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your booking. We have to keep a strict schedule, so if you arrive late you may not receive the full 60 minutes in your room.
Are there cameras in the escape rooms?
Yes our game masters use cameras to track your progress.
Are the tickets refundable?
No cancellations are allowed. In the event an emergency arises, we may be able to reschedule you for a different date.
Is there a limit to the number of players?
All of our escape games have a minimum of 3 players and a maximum of 7-8 players (depending on the theme).
How old do you have to be to play?
Nick of Time Escape Games are geared toward players of any age. However, if you are under 14 years of age, you must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. If you are between 14 and 17 years of age you will need the signature of a parent or guardian to play. In the event they will not be coming with you, please download our waiver and have your parent or guardian sign it in advance so you can bring it with you.
Do I need to bring anything with me to escape?
Nick of Time Escape Games are all inside. You don’t need to bring anything more than a bunch of friends and a positive attitude toward wanting to win.
What happens if we are having trouble solving the puzzles?
In the event you get stumped on any part of the game, simply call out to the game master in the camera, and they will be happy to provide you with clues to help you along. After all, we want you and your group to have a positive and exciting experience, not leave frustrated.
Are tickets transferable?
Yes, you can give away or even resell your tickets to whomever you’d like.
Can I take photos or video while playing the escape games?
The last thing we want to do is spoil any aspects of our games for any future players. Therefore, photos and videos are strictly prohibited from inside the game rooms. However you are more than welcome to take as many pictures and videos as you’d like within the lobby area.
If we have a small group, will we be placed with other people?
If you have a small group there is always a chance that other small groups will also book the same time slot as you. Think of it as a great way to meet new people. If you want to book an entire room, you will need to purchase the maximum capacity for that specific game room.
Are you really going to lock us in?
No! For security reasons, you have the option to leave the escape room at any time if necessary.
Do I need to book our escape game in advance?
Yes. Since spots are extremely limited, we require that you book in advance.
What forms of payments are accepted?
The website accepts any major credit card.
