What Is The Escape The Room Concept?

Pittsburgh’s Escape The Room is a game designed to raise the stakes and excitement. Our team’s goal is to make players fall in love with games again. We offer a number of themes, aka escape rooms. Choose between The Agency, The Apartment, The Newsroom, and The Dig. We hope you’ll have so much fun playing one of our escape games that 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 you are 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 find hidden objects. These will help players uncover secrets and clues to help them gain their freedom. Uncovering the room’s secrets to find an escape is entirely up to the players. Observation skills and logic are great allies to help you escape the room before time runs out!

How do escape rooms work?

Well, it requires team work. Players must combine their wits to free themselves before time is up. Do not worry, although players are locked in the room of the choice, you can ask to be let out at anytime if you or someone else feel uncomfortable during the course of the game. Our team put your safety and comfort first.

How do you get out of an escape room?

Ah! We won’t give away any clues, otherwise this wouldn’t be fun! It’s up to you and your team to crack our codes in time.

How can I play Escape The Room?

Gather your friends, family, or coworkers and book the room of your choice. Each room is a unique game with its own atmosphere and story to set the stage for your adventure. Put your puzzle-solving skills to the test and have fun as a group!

You don’t need to buy all the tickets available for a room in order to play. Buy as many tickets as you need and your group will be added into a game with others who bought tickets for that room. It’s a great way to meet new players and hopefully get to know other escape artists!

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

In that case, you have to find a date and time when all the tickets are available (aka the room as not been booked by anyone yet) and purchase the entire block of tickets.

Where should I park?

Several lots are available on the South Side as well as street parking on most side streets off of East Carson. Muriel Street and Bingham Street both have stretches of free parking if you can find a space and are willing to walk a few blocks.

Is there a place to put our coats or belongings?

Yes. Each room has coat racks inside so you can keep your personal things with you.
