Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS AN ESCAPE ROOM?


An escape room is an adventure game in which players are placed in a room for a set amount of time trying to figure out how to escape. You have to solve a series of puzzles and clues using the elements of the room. This type of game is based off "Escape The Room" video games.




WHO CAN PLAY THIS GAME?


You can play this game with friends, family, or colleagues from work. Escape Rooms are also great for corporate team building! Children under 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult.




WHY SHOULD I DO THIS?


We offer an experience different from other classic activities! Put your intellect, resolve, and problem solving skills to the test!




HOW DIFFICULT IS THE GAME?


The game is designed to be completed in 60 minutes or less. The game scenarios are all challenging, but do have varying difficulty levels. Although all the rooms have over a 30% escape rate, not all teams will finish the game!




IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT?


We are happy to have anyone play! Our rooms are more suited for teenagers and adults, however, we have had children as young as 9 years old participate! If a partipant is 14 years old and under, they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian in the room. If you are under 18 and coming without a parent or guardian, please have your parent or guardian fill out a waiver prior to arriving. Children 5 and under are free.




IS SPECIAL ATTIRE REQUIRED?


Although we love to see themed costumes, no special clothing is necessary!




IS THIS SAFE?


Yes! There is nothing that will cause you harm in any of our rooms. There will be real time monitoring in all the rooms. If you are uncomfortable, you can end the game and exit whenever you want.




WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?


Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your booking. We operate on a very strict time schedule, so if you arrive late you may not receive the full 60 minutes in your room.




ARE WE REALLY LOCKED IN?


No! Your safety and comfort are of top priority. No doors will be locked at any point.




WILL WE BE IN THE ROOM WITH PEOPLE WE DON'T KNOW?


Although we love making new friends, we want you to thoroughly enjoy your escape room experience. All rooms are private and you will NOT be paired with other guests.




WHAT IF WE CAN NOT MAKE OUR RESERVATION?


Rescheduling is allowed with a 24-72 hour notice prior to scheduled time and date. Cancellations require at least a 72 hour notice. Same-day cancellations are not allowed. As we operate on a strict time schedule and reserve the room just for your group, we cannot issue refunds unless the above requirements are met.




DO WE NEED RESERVATIONS?


Yes. The Ocala Escape is only staffed when there are reservations. As all games are private, we may not be able to accommodate your group if there are no reservations.




DO I NEED TO SIGN A WAIVER?


ALL participants must sign a waiver. Without a signed waiver, you cannot participate.
