  • Is the door locked?
    No! The door you entered will always remain open and you can leave at any time. Escaping simply means solving all of the puzzles and clues which lead to leaving the room - in reality you could leave at any time.
  • How much does it cost?
    The base rate for all rooms is $75.00 for up to 2 guests regardless of age or category. Guests 3-8 are $25.00 each for adults, $20.00 each for children ages 5-17 and $20.00 each for special categories like military, first responders, teachers etc. Example 1: 2 teachers, 1 first responder and a 12 year old walk into an escape room - They would pay the base $75.00 rate for the first 2, $20 each for the other 2 for a total of $115 - Example 2: 6 adults would be $75.00 +$100 ( 4 x $25.00) = $175.00 Don't worry the system does the math for you - just make sure if you match one of those discount categories you choose them when booking.
  • Do I need to crawl/bend/climb?
    Yes - in most rooms there may be elements to escaping which involve stairs, bending/stooping/crawling to get to the next areas or solve puzzles. These special situations are listed in each rooms description. If those are a concern out of our current rooms Innocent has none of those and would be the most accessible for anyone with physical restrictions. The Chocolate Factory you will have to bend/stoop and there is one area that requires a couple of steps however it is not required to move through or escape if at least one in your party can navigate the stairs. We would like those with physical limitations to be able to enjoy our escape rooms so if you have questions about your situation please contact us and we can determine which room would work best for you and your group.
  • Is it scary?
    Yes and No since that depends on the person sometimes however here are some things about River City Escape specifically which may help you decide We consider ourselves to be a family friendly escape room No jump scares Game Masters enhance the story but do not try to frighten guests Clairvoyant Conundrum does have "spooky" decorations which could be scary for younger children We are not a haunted house Check the age recommendations on each of our rooms for more guidance
  • What should I wear/bring?
    We have no requirements other than not wearing your birthday suit - but here are some recommendations to make your adventure more fun and less likely to injure yourself Wear close toed shoes Comfortable clothing you can climb/crawl/bend in Wear long hair up/back Glasses for reading if needed See the room descriptions to learn more about how physically active a specific room may be
  • Can I bring my phone?
    Yes! You can bring your phone and use the flashlight to see in dark areas. NO pictures or videos are allowed in the rooms to keep the puzzles private for other guests to enjoy later.
  • Can I bring food/drink?
    No food is allowed in the escape rooms. No drink is allowed unless it's in a closed/non-spill container. Just don't leave it behind - especially in Manhattan - it could become contaminated by radiation! :)
