What is Escape The Room?

New York’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 Submarine, The Dig, The Clock Tower, The Home, and the original escape room in America, The Office. 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 the 60-minute clock strikes zero. 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?

Once locked in the room, you will have 60 minutes to search for clues and solve puzzles, hopefully leading to your escape. It’s up to you and your friends to crack our codes in time and find the correct escape route.

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.

Is there an age limit for any of your 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.

Is this the original Escape Room?

Yes, Escape The Room NYC was the very first escape room in New York City and the very first American owned escape room in the United States.
