Escape Room FAQ
No. While some themes may have a bit of a spooky atmosphere, there are no jump scares. Our rooms are designed to be immersive and challenging, but our intention is never to scare you.

All of our themes are designed to have the same level of difficulty, and are meant to be extremely challenging. Each theme consists of different styles of puzzles, in order to challenge all of your mental faculties. Of course, the puzzles among our various themes are all different, and whether players find some puzzles easier or more challenging to solve is unique to each individual. Escape rooms are a learned skill, so the more familiar you are with them, the more likely you are to be successful in escaping.

Whether you’re new to escape rooms, or have done many before there is something in all of our themes for everyone!

No! Smart phones and all recording devices are not permitted in any of our escape rooms.

Case-Solving Investigators FAQ

It’s an investigation game, developed by Quest Reality Games, where you and your team mates are rookie detectives. Your team needs to find out what happened to Melanie Burton?! Investigate the scene – Analyze the evidence – Solve the case!

Case-Solving Investigators involves an “active” investigation scene, parents are strongly cautioned that some material may be inappropriate for children under 13, as it contains a realistic corpse, blood and gore.


No. Case-Solving Investigators is available as a live investigation game, played at Quest Reality Games, and also as an online game. Both versions contain the same material and have the same three scenarios to choose from. If you’ve played a live version and you wish to play an online version be sure to select a different scenario.

This is NOT an escape game, this is an investigation game that challenges your team to solve the mysterious death of Melanie Burton. However, like an escape game, smaller teams will be challenged more to find the clues, process the evidence, and solve the case. The game is private and you have 1.5 hrs to solve the mystery.
