What is Escape The Room?

Philadelphia’s Escape The Room brings gaming to a whole new level as players are immersed in one of our three puzzle escape rooms. You and your friends can choose between The Agency, Three Mile Island, and The Dig to try and escape in under 60 minutes. Each escape room Philadelphia offers is unique so once you get out of one, we hope you’ll try your hand at the others.

What is an 'escape room'?

Escape rooms are unlike any other real-life gaming experiences. Players are completely in control of the outcome of the game. Escape rooms are designed to lock players inside a room where they’ll have to race against the clock (60 Minutes) 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 have 60 minutes to work together and combine their wits to successfully free themselves from our escape rooms. While you will essentially be locked inside a room, if you or anyone else in the room feels uncomfortable for any reason during the course of the game you can and will be let out. Your safety and comfort is a top priority.

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. If you don’t, you will still be let out, just without the heartwarming feeling of victory.

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 the Room Philadelphia is 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.

Can I purchase my tickets at the door?

For convenience, we encourage all customers to book tickets online in advance. We are happy to accommodate door sales based on availability, but the only way to guarantee a specific time or date is to purchase tickets online. All tickets must be paid for in advance, we do not hold 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.
