I have played all 4 of your scenarios, is there anything left for me?
Yes! We will be changing the puzzles in each scenario. This spring, several of the scenarios will be moving to Deadwood. The newly planed in RC are turning Saloon #10 in to a sheriff's office, you've been framed stealing gold from a claim and you must shoot your way out! The others are aliens landing on the missile silos of Western SD and

What is an Escape room?
Escape rooms are live-action based team games where players discover clues, solve puzzles and accomplish tasks in one or more rooms in order to
accomplish the goal of "escaping" the room and solving the puzzle in a limited amount of time.
Will we be truly locked in? What if I am claustrophobic?
No, there will be 2 doors, the entrance to the experience door will not be locked due to fire department regulations. There will be a second locked "escape" door to end the game.
The rooms are somewhat spacious at approximately 400 square feet.
Will we be able to communicate from inside the rooms?
Yes, you will have a walkie talkie to communicate with the gamemaster. These will be used to gather hints or solutions as well as leaving the room if needed.
What if we don't solve the game in the hour given?
We have built in extra time into our schedule to allow you extra time to finish if wanted!
Can the game be made harder or easier at our request?
Yes! You may set the number of hints allowed or request an easier room at booking time.
Who will enjoy the game the most?
Tourists, families, dates, team building, friends night out, special occasions, gamers, and anyone who enjoys a good puzzle!
