Learn more here.

How many people can I do an escape room with?

Each escape requires a minimum of 4 people and has a maximum of 10. During Covid, all escapes are private, but after restrictions are lifted, if you do not book a private room by buying all of the available tickets, it is possible and very likely you will share the escape experience with other people. Don’t worry, you become friends very quickly.

Should I buy tickets in advance?

YES! You have to make a reservation in advance as we have live actors in every escape. They need at least 1 hour's notice to get the room ready for you, so our booking system automatically closes 1 hour before each escape.

How far in advance can I buy tickets?

Generally within 3 months or 90 days.

What type of events are escape rooms good for?

You name it and it’s good for it. Birthdays, bachelor and bachelorette parties, corporate parties, corporate trainings, team building exercises, young men and women groups, holiday parties, group dates, double dates, high school or college dances and activities, and anything else you can think of where people want to do something unique and fun.

Do you have a room I can rent out? How many people can fit in it?

Yes. See prices Here. Theater style seating can fit up to 20 people at one time. Table seating is 36.

Are escape rooms worth the cost of admission?

Yes, if it’s a good one. Click here to see what makes a great escape room.

Do I have to book an entire room to attend?

No, you don’t. You only have to have the room's minimum required attendance.

How old do you have to be to do an escape room?

Our rooms have minimum unaccompanied ages, anyone under that age must be accompanied by an adult 18 years old or older. Click here to find out more.

How many people can I bring for an event/escape?

This depends on how many escapes you would like to book. We suggest no more than the maximum capacity suggested per room. Each experience is an hour long. Therefore, 1 room accommodates 12, more or less, and is an hour long. Booking 2 rooms accommodates 24 people, so really it’s up to you. You can either book the same room multiple times, or multiple rooms at the same time. This should give you the numbers to determine how many escapes and how many hours you will need to book to accommodate your group, and give you the cost as well.

Can I have more people attend an escape than the maximum amount allowed when booking?

Yes. Call us for more details.

What is the difference between a Private Escape and a Non Private Escape?

A private escape allows you to have an escape 100% exclusively for your group whether you bring the minimum or maximum attendance or anywhere in-between. No one else can join you in a private escape. If you do not book a private escape, the remaining spaces are available for others to purchase and join your escape just as in a movie theater or play.

I’ve booked my escape room with Red Giant Escape Rooms

What is not allowed onsite?

No drugs, weapons, smoking, or alcohol are allowed within 25 feet of the premises. No outside food is allowed, with possible exceptions for events. We do not allow pictures or videos in our escape rooms, though we do have photo-op areas for each room. We provide lockers for you to store anything you do not want to carry into the room.

What happens if I’m late to my reservation?

We will try to accommodate you, depending on the booking and resources available at the time of your booking. If you and your group are the only ones in that particular escape, we won’t start until you arrive, waiting a maximum of 20 minutes past the escape's start time. Your escape room experience will also be one hour minus the amount of time you are late. If others are in your same booking, then the escape will start on time without you, but you will be allowed into the room up to 20 minutes from when the escape was supposed to start.

Can I change my reservation once I've booked it?

Yes. Simply call us at 801-753-8601 or email us at before the minimum time required to change a reservation. Click Here for our full policies.

Do you offer refunds?

We have a general no refund policy. Click here for more information.

What if we beat the game before the time runs out?

Awesome! That’s the goal! You want to try to get out as quickly as possible. We will do everything we can so that you get the most time to play the game, but if you’re awesome, you’re awesome.

What if we run out of time before we beat the game?

Then the game is over and you can come back and try again to conquer the room that conquered you. If you want to know, we will also let you know what puzzles and clues you were missing.

What happens if we can’t solve the puzzles in the room?

Each room has live actors and are monitored through our camera system. We want you to get the most bang for your buck, so our actors will moderate how many clues they give you and how often they are given, so that you get the most of the 60 minute escape available to you. You’re probably closer to cracking it than you think.

Do you have red herring puzzles? What is a red herring puzzle?

No! These are clues, puzzles or riddles that take up time but don’t lead anywhere. We do not like red herrings.

How early should I arrive?

As early as you want so you can play some of our free games in the lobby, hang out with your friends in our waiting area, and get a drink and snacks. You need to show up at least 20 minutes early to check in and sign waivers. Feel free to stay after your escape as well.

Why do I need to sign a waiver?

Escape rooms are very exciting and most people lose themselves in the game. Sometimes this can lead to overexcitement in a room with 12+ people. We take every precaution to make sure you are safe, but just in case, we have the waivers to make sure people don't get too crazy, and to protect us if they do.

Why do you have cameras in each room?

To help customers who need clues, to help as quickly as possible if there is an emergency, and to protect ourselves from false accusations that may arise.

Is the door really locked?

Some rooms do have locked doors and some don't. Any exit door that is locked has several emergency overrides, including a manual emergency release button available that anyone can push if needed.

Do I need to bring anything?

Mental preparation to have a good time is all you need, and even if you don’t, once the game starts you will anyways.

Does it matter who uses the tickets I purchase?

No. They are not assigned to anyone in particular EXCEPT for the person who books the tickets. That person must be present to pickup the tickets onsite or have communicated with us beforehand that someone else will pick up the tickets with proof of identity.

What’s the point of doing another escape room or the same one twice?

There are several reasons. 1) Each escape room is unique in almost every way, even those with the same theme at different locations are drastically different. 2) If you enjoyed a particular escape room, you can come back, bring friends, and work on the puzzles you didn’t solve yourself last time. 3) Plus, if you didn’t escape in time you can always come back and try to beat the room again now that you're better prepared. 4) Many of our rooms have different options in the start, the end, or throughout the escape that affect the character the actor plays, the story, and some of the props. 5) The biggest reason is because they're fun!

Do you offer a portable escape I can book to come to me?

Currently we do not, but we are planning on building one, time TBD.
