Below we have tried to answer many of the common questions. If you are unable to find an answer contact us at: owners@escapegettysburg.com

Yes! There is nothing inappropriate in any of our rooms; however, younger children may have trouble solving the clues. Anyone under 12 years old should be accompanied by an adult to play. We have had multi-generational families book an entire room with children under 10 years old who have done very well.

Escape the Room Challenge is an interactive game designed for you to participate in a real-life escape setting. When you enter one of our themed rooms, you choose to be locked inside for an hour while you uncover clues and puzzles that will help you to escape Each room is designed for a maximum number of people. You can come alone, with a friend, or book the entire block of players for a room. You will be briefed by a staff member that will review the rules and explain the goals. Then you will be locked in the room. You have one hour to solve all the puzzles and escape the room.

Escape the Room Challenge is a unique experience and costs $25 per player. Follow us on our facebook page for giveaways and promotions.
Nope! Just be willing to search for hidden clues and related items… and to use your brain! If you are really struggling, hidden forces may offer you a clue and get you moving in the right direction.
You’ll have one hour to escape the room. After that hour, if you don’t succeed, we’ll have a debriefing of the game. Plan on spending a total of 90 minutes with us from start to finish. You should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time. Once a group is locked in a room you will NOT be allowed to enter. We do not offer any refunds on reserved tickets.
Each room has a limited number of people that can participate. If you purchase fewer than the total amount of tickets, you will be in a group with others (which can make your escape challenge more fun!)
*** If you would like to book a room for your group only, you must purchase the entire block of participants for a room. For example, if you want your own group to experience Mad Hatter Tea, you must purchase all eight participants for a specific time. If you would like to organize a special event for your group, please contact us at owners@escapegettysburg.com
You must reserve an experience online by booking a specific day and time that will accommodate your group. It is important to schedule experiences in advance to ensure your group can be in the same challenge. If you do not book your experience online, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to participate in a challenge.
No. We have set the capacities for each room for the players’ benefit in order to achieve the best experience for everyone.

If you need to cancel your booked challenge, please contact us to reschedule for another time. We do not offer any refunds on reserved tickets.

Yes. The surest way to escape is through communicating with everyone else in the room. Share the clues you find. Problem-solve together. Look! Touch! Explore! Clues can be anywhere, but nothing is designed that you would need to break it, tear it, or force it. Work as a team to think through new information.​
