Frequently Asked Questions
What is an escape room?
An “escape room” is an indoor immersive adventure game consisting of a series of puzzles that follow a common theme. Players work as a team to find clues and solve puzzles to achieve the objective of the game before time runs out. A game host helps with clues when needed and keeps the game on track.
Will I really be locked inside?
No. We do not lock the door and players may easily and quickly exit at anytime and the exit is not hidden. The objective of a Stumpt! escape room is to beat the clock.
Should I be concerned about claustrophobia?
Stumpt! escape rooms do not have small or confined spaces. The Crash and The Last Straw are single, fairly large rooms. If you are concerned about claustrophobia, we welcome you to visit us for a tour. We are happy to show you the escape rooms without giving away any of the puzzles.
Are your escape rooms scary?
The Crash and The Last Straw do not have any frightening content at all. They are dimly lit for atmosphere, however, overhead lights are available if guests would like more light. Young children typically feel comfortable in these rooms. Zombie Outbreak has a small amount of gore and is recommended for ages 13 and up.
Are your escape rooms good for kids?
Absolutely! Children of all ages are welcome to explore and participate in The Crash and The Last Straw, although younger children will need assistance from an older player, since the puzzles are designed to challenge adults. Our in-character game hosts can help make the game easier (or harder) through creative clue giving. Zombie Outbreak is designed for ages 13+. Younger players are welcome with parental consent.
What is your age policy?
Children ages 5 and under are free and do not count against the room maximum. Please inform us if you plan to have more than three kids 5 and under in your group.
Children and teens 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult — at least 1 adult per group. If the adult is participating simply to supervise the group and will not be playing the game, there is no charge for the supervising adult.
What happens if we lose?
Our escape games are challenging and we don’t “rig” things so that every team wins just in time. Our primary goal, however, is to provide our guests with a fun & memorable experience, win or lose. So, if your team fails to beat the clock, you are welcome to finish the game. We do not rush you out the door to prepare for the next group. Our escape room schedule is designed to provide you with the best possible experience, including extended game time if you need as well as time for explaining the puzzles and taking photos.
Do you offer group & corporate rates?
Yes. Please contact us if your group is larger than 16 for special accommodations.
Do you host birthday parties?
Our escape rooms are great for special occasions like birthday parties. Our space is small, however, and we do not have a separate party room for groups or substantial seating. The Crash does have some space for setting up a table, for example, if birthday treats are desired with your escape room experience. Special group rates and scheduling outside normal hours are available. Contact us for information.
