Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you located?
We are located at 717 North 2nd Street, Harrisburg, PA 17102, right in Historical Downtown Harrisburg, and about 20 minutes from Hershey.
Please note: if you are using a GPS, please make sure you select the “HARRISBURG” “17102” address, and not the “STEELTON” address.
What is the recommended age?
While nothing in our escape rooms would be considered inappropriate, our escape rooms are primarily designed for adults. The recommended ages for an escape room experience with us is generally high school and up.
All youth under the age of 18 must be accompanied in the room by at least 1 paying and participating adult for every 2 youth. Even if the room is booked as private, no participants under the age of 15 are permitted in the Outbreak room. Children aged 12 and under are not recommended and will only be allowed in rooms booked as “Private” for your party.
This will be strictly enforced for the sake of our other guests, and parties in violation of our age policies may be turned away without refund or credit. Please email us if you have questions about our age policies before making your reservation.
Where should we park?
On-street parking with meters is generally available very close to the building. Parking garages can also be found throughout the city, but they are a few blocks away. State Street is often a good place to park and is only a short walk from our front door.
Please remember, you must arrive on time. Be sure to factor in time to find street or garage parking when you plan your arrival. We must start on time, and if you arrive late, even if it was due to difficulties parking, it is possible you will not be able to participate.
Note: Mon-Sat metered parking is free after 7:00 pm and parking is free on Sundays all-day.
We do not have private parking available to our customers.
Am I locked inside the room?
No, there will be an unlocked door, and you can leave if necessary. The timer will continue to count down from the scheduled start time.
Is it scary?
No, the rooms are not designed to be scary, but they will be exciting!
How long should I plan for my experience to take?
You should plan to arrive on time, but please not earlier than 30 min before your scheduled start time without making arrangements beforehand. You will be welcomed by staff who will tell you everything you need to know for the game. The actual game will last 60 minutes (or less if you escape). Most guests like to have our staff take their photos and explain any clues they might not have understood correctly. We advise to plan 90 minutes or so for the entire experience.
