Overview

During the course of a 60-minute room escape experience, you and your group will be tested on your ability to search for clues, solve puzzles and work together to get out before your time expires. Save the White House: You and fellow teammates are being trained as secret agents and find yourselves locked down in the White House during an attack. It's up to you to Save the White House! Escape the Safe House: Your spy skills are being tested in a high tech spy lair, requiring a mastery of spy-craft to complete your mission in time! After your escape, visit the next door SafeHouse bar and restaurant to continue your adventure, with a fun scavenger hunt, spy-themed food and cocktails, and a secret escape route when you leave.

The employee working was easygoing and made the experience enjoyable. The puzzle was challenging but doable. Would highly recommend.

Our group of 3 adults and 6 teens had a great time trying to break out of the Escape House. The kids were especially great at putting together clues and decoding puzzles under pressure. We managed to escape but it was challenging!

Answer
Response from EscapeHouse | Property representative |
EscapeHouse takes group of up to 10 people and either escape room experience you choose to participate in will last no more than an hour. Cost is $35 per participant so for 6 people that would come to $210 plus tax.
