So it's an escape room?

Yes! But because our rooms focus on giving players the experience of a playable adventure, we prefer to call it a Live Adventure Interactive Room (LAIR).

I often feel intimidated by escape rooms, or left out of the group.

Our room directors are present in the room and their job is to:  Provide subtle guidance so you do not get stuck on anything not worth getting stuck on, and to help all players feel included and that they are contributing to the adventure.

How long does it take to play?

Your adventure will take one hour! This includes your story briefing, play time, and debriefing.

Ages 12 and up, unless accompanied by a parent. Children under 4 are free.
