I am sick, can I play?
Absolutely not. Per our policy, if you are sick or we believe you to be sick you cannot go in our escape rooms. We sanitize our rooms, however on a busy day more than 100 people will go through our rooms. We cannot have germs that could make our other guests sick being spread throughout our rooms.
Gaming under the influence, is it okay?
Alcohol or drugs are not allowed inside the building at any time.
If you admit to/or appear to be intoxicated or under the influence of any mind-altering substance(s) you cannot go into the escape room. No refunds will be offered.
How do I buy tickets?
Generally, tickets are purchased from our website, however, you can stop by our location and purchase tickets if we are available. We prefer to only take payment over the phone for special corporate or business events.
Do you have Gift Cards?
Yes. You can purchase gift tickets HERE.
What if we are going to be late?
We understand that sometimes the unexpected can happen and cause you to be late. 5 minutes after your room was scheduled to start we begin to remove time from your 60 minute experience. If you are 20 minutes late to your booking you will not be able to start and will forfeit your booking. You will not receive a refund or be able to reschedule.
IMPORTANT: If you have not booked the entire room and are paired with other guests we will only wait on you for 5 minutes before starting the room. You will NOT be allowed in the room after the game has started. You will not receive a refund or be able to reschedule.
When should I arrive?
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your booking. Due to heavy demand, we must keep a tight schedule, so if you arrive late you may not receive the full 60 minutes for the game.
What should I wear?
It is always fun to see people dress for the room theme they are coming to do! But really, just be comfortable, some rooms may involve bending, crawling, twisting, etc.
What do I need to do before I play?
When you arrive, we will verify your booking in our system. Everyone in the group will need to sign a liability waiver before playing. Minors under 18 yrs of age will need to have a parent or guardian sign their waiver for them either in our lobby or online from our website prior to arriving. Our staff will verify that all waivers our signed before your game can begin.
Can I bring food or drinks in the room?
We do not allow food or drinks in the escape rooms and we do not have have a place to store these items. It is best to leave food and/or drinks in your vehicle if you are participating in an escape room.
Am I really locked in a room?
Absolutely not! Escape Joplin might be an escape room by definition, but your safety is our number one priority. None of the escape room doors are locked throughout your experience. So come out and have fun, there is nothing to worry about!
How much time do I get to play?
Each escape room games can last up to 60 minutes. Some groups may "escape" or complete their objectives sooner.
