What is an Escape Room?

Escape Rooms are a fun, new interactive entertainment concept here in Columbus.  Your goal is simple: work together as a team, testing your wits and skills, to escape from a locked room. While the goal is simple, the game is challenging. Getting through the locked door will require finding clues, solving puzzles, and working together as a team or else you may never escape. Book today and see if you can keep cool under pressure and escape the room in under 60 minutes!


Will this be scary?

No, this is not scary at all! The room is brightly lit and there is nothing scary in the room.

How much are tickets?

Tickets are $29 per person. You can find additional information and schedule online here.

Should I arrive earlier than my scheduled time?

Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your game start time. This will allow necessary time to fill out your paperwork and receive the backstory and rules and tips about your mission in the escape game! 

If I'm late, can I still play?​ 

The door to the room closes exactly at the time you signed up for. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to make sure you are there before the room is locked. You will not be permitted into the room if you are late. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.

How many people can play at once?

We allow up to 8-10 people in the room at one time, d.epending on the room. If you do not purchase all the tickets for that time slot, be prepared to share the room with other guests. This can actually make the experience more fun!

Will I be playing the game with other people?

This will depend on how many are in your group. If the total available slots are 10 and there are only 4 of you then 6 slots will be "available". They will not necessarily be filled, but there is a possibility that others may buy those tickets. Most people have a great time and meet new friends.

Am I actually going to be locked in a room?

Yes and no. You will be in a room with a locked door, but every door is equipped with an exit button and at any time should you feel the need to leave the room you are welcome to. Of course leaving the room early and before finishing all of the clues will disqualify you from the game.

When are you open?

Please click here for available ticket times.

Is there an age requirement?

Our themes are great for ages 8 and up. Guests ages 8-15 must have a paying adult participating in the room with them. However, if you reserve a private party, you can bring guests of any age. Please contact us to find out more information at Contact@buckeyeescaperoom.com.

This is a part of our night out, is it ok to drink before we arrive?

Save the celebratory/consulatory beverages for after your show. You will need your brain to be clear to solve the puzzles! Intoxicated guests will not be allowed to participate.

Are walk-ins allowed?

Unfortunately walk-ins are not allowed. All game reservations must be pre-booked online prior to the scheduled escape game time. This makes sure there won't be too many players within each session.


Can I have the room just for my group?

If you wish to have the room for your group only during one of our regularly-scheduled game times, you must purchase all the tickets for that show time.

How long does the entire experience last?

Please plan on an hour and a half. There is a quick briefing, the room experience and then a debriefing. While you may get out quicker, it is best to allot 90 minutes if you have dinner plans or a timed event you are going to afterwards.

I am allergic to cats. Are there actual cats in the Crazy Cat Lady Room?

No, there are no live cats in the room so it should not be a problem if you have an allergy. Keep in mind that other players may have hair on their jackets or clothing.


How much knowledge do I need to know about the 90's in order to be successful in your Back To The 90's Room?


None of our rooms require ANY outside knowledge at all. All of the answers that you will need you will find in our rooms.


Is it possible to purchase gift certificates?

Yes, you can purchase gift certificates here.

What happens if we don't escape in time?


You are stuck in there forever! We are joking of course. Once the timer is up, we will let you out. We guarantee you will love the experience regardless of the outcome.
