At Worlds Away Escape, our policy has always been to disinfect and clean between sessions. There is hand sanitizer in both lobbies and hand soap is available in the bathroom. Our hours will remain the same and you can check worldsawayescape.com/booking for availability. Our policy on cancellations also remains the same. If you prepaid and need to cancel we can issue you a gift certificate or reschedule your session. If you have any concerns you can always contact us through the website or our Facebook page.
All of our sessions have been made private. You will not be in the room with strangers. Once you book for the number of players on your team, our booking system will automatically block off the remaining tickets. There is no extra cost for this. You can have a maximum of 8 players on your team. As always, you can choose Pay On Arrival if you are booking as a team but need to pay separately. We are also limiting our lobbies to only one team per lobby at a time. *Our staff will wear masks and we encourage you to wear a face covering in the lobbies but you are not required to wear one while you play the games.
What is Worlds Away Escape?
Worlds Away Escape is an interactive escape room adventure where teams of players work together to complete puzzles and discover clues based on locations all over the world (and beyond). Your team must find a way to solve the mystery and escape the room before time runs out!
Do I Really Have to Book for 3 People?
No. As stated on our booking page, we recommend at least 3 players because the rooms are designed for larger teams. We want you to have a great experience and often two person teams do not escape. If you’re okay with possibly being extremely frustrated, then we say go for it:) On the other hand, if you have tons of experience, two people might be the perfect number of team players for your team.
How long is the game?
Teams have sixty (60) minutes to complete all the challenges in the room.
Can I Book for Just Two People?
Yes, you can but our rooms are more fun with more people due to the amount of content and difficulty of each room. We recommend at least 3 people for a better experience.
How do I play and how much is the cost?
Tickets and cost (including tax) are available individually per session via our booking page. Starting August 6th the price is $25/ticket, or $170 if you book all 8 tickets in the room. Once you book for 8 people, our booking system will automatically update your cost to $170. If you populate the fields at the top of the booking page you will see the cost per session. All prices include tax.
Do you offer a corporate rate?
Starting August 6th, the corporate price is $150/room and this will cover your team of 2-8 players; we do not charge per person for corporate bookings. If you want to have one or two extra players in each room, there will be a $20 fee for every person over the 8 person limit. Please keep in mind that communication breaks down the more people you have in the room and we want all players to have a chance to participate. If you are booking all three rooms, we are happy to provide an additional discount.
*Our booking system will not apply this corporate discount automatically. Please send us a message using the contact form if you are interested in booking so that we can adjust the price for you:) You can choose to pay via phone or at check in.
*Please arrive 15 minutes early and have your teams already divided up if you are doing more than one room.
Who Counts as a Corporate Group?
Work groups, youth groups, or anyone booking multiple rooms.
Do you offer a military discount?
We offer a 10% off military discount. Simply select the option to “pay on arrival” on the payment page and we will apply the discount at check in:) Bring your ID with you please.
Do you offer a student and teacher discount?
There is also a Student and Teacher Day, which happens the second Sunday of every month. The price is $15/ticket. When you book, choose “pay on arrival” and be sure one person in the group brings their school ID.
Do you offer any other discounts?
Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram, as we do sometimes offer seasonal discounts. Also be on the look out for riddles that offer discount codes.
Do you have gift certificates available?
We sure do! Visit the Gift Certificate page to purchase digital certificates. Your confirmation email will have a link that will allow you to customize the look for printing. If you purchased a physical gift certificate in-store or were given one, please choose “Pay on Arrival” when you book and bring it with you to your session.
Are the rooms appropriate for children?
We discourage children under the age of 13. This is due to the complexity and strategies of the puzzles. Children under the age of 16 will require adult supervision. If you want to book a session with a child under 13, please be aware that we do not offer kids prices. The price is the same for all of the players who are participating. In addition, some of our rooms might contain content that is not appropriate for children, such as dark rooms, flashing lights, spooky audio, or potential choking hazards for little ones.
Will we be playing with other people?
Currently, all of our sessions are private. Book for the number of people on your team and our booking system will automatically block off the remaining tickets.
Can I Book for Just Me and My Kids?
Sure. Currently, all sessions are private so bring your littles if you want. Just remember that we do not offer special kids prices and some of the rooms might not be appropriate for young children due to spookiness or difficulty level. If you click on Room Info Tab at the top, you you can learn more about each room. *If you can’t find a sitter and you must bring your infant with you, No, we will not charge you for infants, only for the children that will be participating.*
Can I bring Infants?
Since all sessions are currently private, if you can’t find a sitter and you must bring your infant with you, we are fine with it:) We will not charge you for infants, only for the children that will be participating. Just be aware that some rooms might contain spooky content, flashing lights, or atmospheric sounds, or small items like keys that could be choking hazards. See Room Info Tab to learn more about each room.
Can My Child Have Their Birthday Party Here?
Of course! We do not have separate party space for partying but you are welcome to store gifts in one of the lobbies while you play the game. Tickets are $25 per person but when you book for 8 players our booking system will automatically reduce your cost to $170 for your team of 8.
Engagements/ Bridal Parties okay?
Absolutely! Booking works the same way. Book for the number of people on your team. If you’re booking for 8 people (which is a full room) our booking system will automatically reduce your cost to $170. If you have special requests such as hiding photos, hiding a ring, or tweaking a few things for your special someone, just send us an email through the contact form on the website. There is no additional cost for these small changes and we are happy to do it:)
*Please do not consume alcohol before your session*
What if I have more people than the posted room capacity?
Our rooms have a strict capacity due to the content of the room being played as well posted capacities by the Fire Marshal.
If you have a large group, consider booking two time slots, or two separate rooms! Head-to-head competition is a great experience!
Can I bring anything into the room?
Bring a clear, open mind and a sense of adventure! Bags, purses, and coats should be left elsewhere but each room has a place to put them down while you play. Cell phones will be collected and locked in a box that goes into the room with you. If this makes you uncomfortable or you have a specific need to keep your phone just let the host know. Our lobbies are frequently visited so we cannot be held liable for personal belongings left in them while you are in the room.
Are there physical requirements?
A strong mind is the key to our games. Other physical requirements include minor bending, crouching, etc. Objects in the room do not require more than two fingers of strength. Remember this is a game of brain, not brawn!
Are the games scary?
Depends on the theme of the room. Our rooms contain elements such as dim lighting, loud music, sound effects and more, as to follow the theme of the particular room. An exception is our Halloween-themed rooms, which usually are noted to contain frightful elements.
Are you a franchise or do you have other locations?
It is only us! Most escape rooms you will find are local and independently owned (like us), but there are some chained venues. To keep our guests interested in our town, we change up our rooms often with new themes, puzzles, and fun!
