What is an Escape Room?
Each of our four themed escape rooms are a real-life adventure game in which participants are figuratively locked in a room and have to use its objects and elements to solve a series of puzzles, discover hidden clues, and make logical connections in order to find the way out (hence, escape) within time frame depending on the escape room. It is an interactive thrilling unique experience.
How Do I Book an Escape Room at OB-Xscape Rooms?
All of our bookings are done online via our website at www.obxscaperooms.com. For bookings availability less than one hour from booking time, please call.
What Does an Escape Room Cost Per Participant?
Our escape room prices per participant is $30 per person for Mutiny on the Lark and Cold Case Murder of Dawn Renee and $25 per person for Meltdown. All bookings must be purchased in advanced.
Can We Participate without a Reservation?
All bookings are required to have an advanced paid reservation. If you walk in and your group is ready, and we happen to have a room available then you are one lucky ducky!
Is the Door Really Locked?
Yes and no. You are figuratively locked in a room, but even though you may forget that you paid to be locked in our escape room, for safety reasons the entry door is never actually locked and you can leave at any time. However, once you leave the room the game is over for you.
Who is it For?
OB-Xscape Rooms are great for casual get-togethers with friends and family, gamers, an unique (other than the movies) date night, tourists, special events, birthday parties, corporate team building, corporate evaluations of team members, or simply just a reason to “ESCAPE” the house! Our escape rooms are appropriate for children 10 years old or older.
How Many Participants Are in the Session?
Each room has a different allowance of participants. Check each room’s description for the minimum and maximum participants.
Will There Be People I Don’t Know in the Room?
Depends. The room is open to anyone to book and to enjoy the experience with other players. When you book your room, there will be a maximum participant listed for that particular room and if any number of available bookings for that room is less than that maximum listed will be a clue that your group will be joining another group. Strangers upon entry will not feel that way once the game begins, however if you would like a private booking, you will need to purchase all the available tickets under one reservation and have the option to exchange them with your friends or family that you want to join your group.
What Should I Bring with Me?
Just bring your wit and cleverness with you. The answers to the clues, riddles, and puzzles are all in the rooms. You will be using your ability to look for clues, make logical connections between objects and elements in the room, as well as communicate with the other performers, and apply deductive reasoning to escape. If you are booking Mutiny on the Lark then leave watches and bracelets at home.
When Should I Arrive for my Game?
We ask that your party arrives 15 minutes prior to your scheduled booking time in order assure waiver is completed and listen to our escape and safety brief. No refunds will be offered for arrivals after the booking time and the time will be taken from the booked time you had reserved. Please see our cancellation/late arrivals/no show policy.
What if I Need to Change my Reservation and What is Your Cancellation Policy?
Please pay attention: No refunds are given for groups or part of a group that shows up late, fails to show up, or cancels.
Rescheduling/Change of Booking
Bookings may be rescheduled up to 24 hours in advance of booking.
A booking is considered a no-show if a group or part thereof fails to show for the booking 10 mins past the scheduled booking time.
Since your ticket reserves the room for 45-60 minutes, in case you show up late, your game time will be decreased. If the rest of your group arrives on time, they will be allowed to start without you. No exceptions.
Are Cell Phones Permitted?
Cell phones are not allowed in the room. The use of electronic devices or any outside tools are strictly prohibited and you will immediately be removed from the escape room if you attempt to use them. All of our escape rooms are monitored by our game masters 100% of your time in the escape room. We provide a wall cabinet to store your phone outside your room if you would like to bring it in to take pictures afterwards or use it o check in with our confirmation email.

Wear flat shoes, and we recommend closed-toe shoes. For your safety, you will not be allowed to participate if you are wearing high heels/wedges or barefoot. You are welcome to bring a change of appropriate footwear with you. We also recommend dressing in layers as you may start to feel like you are in a human stew which may not be very appetizing for the other participants.
How Old Do You Have to Be?
Participants must be at least 10 years of age. Participants ages 10-15 must be accompanied by a paying adult in the room. Children under 10, including Infants and toddlers will not be allowed in the room unless the group purchases the entire room making it, in essence, a private event. A minimum of one adult per 4 children must accompany and stay onsite with groups of children (including birthday parties) under the age of 16. Any unaccompanied minor (ages 14-17 years old) must have a signed liability release waiver signed by their parent/legal guardian/custodian. CLICK HERE for the waiver.

Yes, our game masters will be monitoring your game and either will offer a clue or give a clue upon your request to beat the clock. There are no penalties or restrictions for giving out clues.
What if I am Pregnant?
We do not recommend the Mutiny on the Lark escape room for women who are pregnant, as there is the risk of falling due to the dim lighting or chance of trauma to your abdomen while participating. Cold Case Murder of Dawn Renee and Meltdown will not be strenuous enough to advised against pregnant womens’ participation, but as with all rooms participation, is ultimately up to your discretion and we recommend consulting your physician prior to participation.
