Please arrive 10 minutes earlier to your scheduled game time. When you arrive at Escape Games NYC the Game Master welcomes you at the front desk. There is no need to print out your booking. By simple telling us the name of the person who made the reservation we are able to confirm your booking.
When everybody is gathered we will start a brief explanation of the game and how everything works. You don’t have to bring anything with you, just your wits and curiosity.
After the orientation you are locked into the room.
Locked, really? – Yes.
No worries, there is an escape button installed in each room that force opens each door! So if you feel claustrophobic, need to go to the restroom or have to take an important call, you can exit and re-enter the room anytime.
The game starts when the Game Master closes the “escape door”. You will see a countdown timer indicating your remaining game time.
Now everything is on you and your teammates. Figure out the way to your escape!
There is no physical strength needed for any of our games. What you will need is your mental force. You have to solve puzzles, quizzes and brainteasers, using strategy, creativity and logic on your quest to freedom.
If you cannot figure out something, you have 3 lifelines you can use. In each room there is a way to communicate with your Game Master, who will give you a hint to move forward.
“Tick tock” – beat the clock!
– You manage to escape or not, you are here for the fun and the experience.
Hopefully you beat our game and make your escape, if not, the Game Master will let you out after your time run down, and explain the missing puzzles to your freedom.
We invite you to take some photos after your game is finished, which can take up an extra 5 minutes.
