What is Escape The Room?

Boston’s Escape The Room raises the stakes and excitement to reinvigorate players’ love of games in a number of different themed escape rooms. You and your friends can choose between The Dig, The Apartment and The Clock Tower, our newest room. Once you’ve successfully escaped one room, we hope you’ll try your hand at others.

What is an 'escape room'?

What sets escape rooms apart from other real-life gaming experiences is that players are in control of the outcome of the game. Simply put, escape rooms are designed to lock players inside a room where they’ll have to race against the clock to uncover secrets and clues to help them escape. It is up to the players to use their observation and logic to uncover the room’s secrets and earn their freedom before time runs out.

How do escape rooms work?

Teams will have to work together and combine their wits to successfully free themselves before time runs out. While you will essentially be locked inside a room, know that you may ask to be let out if you or anyone else feels uncomfortable for any reason during the course of the game. Your safety and comfort are among our highest priorities.

How do you get out of an escape room?

We’re not giving you all the clues here. But you will have 60 minutes with your friends, family, co-workers in the room to figure out the puzzles and find the clues to get out and successfully escape the room.

How can I play Escape The Room?

Gather your friends, family, or coworkers and book the room of your choice. Each room has a wholly immersive atmosphere and story to set the stage for your adventure. Escape rooms are the perfect chance to put your puzzle-solving skills to the test and have fun!

You are not, however, required to buy all of the tickets available for a room in order to play. Buy as many or as little tickets as you like. Your group will be added into a game with others who bought tickets for that room.

What if I only want my group in an escape room?

Find a date and time with all of the tickets available and purchase the entire block of tickets.

Do you have food on site?

We do not have food, but there are plenty of options right near us. Bars and restaurants like Fajitas & Ritas, Yvonne’s, Back Deck, Papagayo, Mooya Burgers, Legal Crossing, and Dumpling Cafe all within walking distance from our door.

Is there an age limit for any of the escape rooms?

Though all of our puzzles are designed for adult minds, we welcome all ages. However, if any member of your party is 14 years of age or under, there must be at least one adult chaperone to accompany unless you have booked the entire room (though we still encourage having an adult present). If any member of your party is 10 years or under, you must purchase all tickets for a room to ensure it is a private game as a courtesy to our other customers.

Exactly where is Escape The Room Boston located?

We are in the building with the with the big green awning with 33 on it on West Street between Washington to Tremont. Dial 301 on the buzz box to come on in.
