FAQ

What Is An Escape Room?

An escape room is a challenging adventure where participants are in a room and will need to work together to escape by solving a series of puzzles within 60 minutes. The puzzles include codes, locks, riddles, and clues.

How Do I Book A Game?

You can book a game by simply visiting our Book Room page. There you will be able to select the time you would like to attend and the number of participants. You must book at least 24 hours in advance. No cash on premises. All bookings must be made online.

If you have any issues booking online or need further assistance, please call 319-545-2100.

When Should I Arrive?

You must arrive 15 minutes prior to your room time. Our games run on a strict schedule and if you arrive late or exactly at your room time, you may not be able to utilize the room for the entire 60 minutes.

What Is The Minimum Age?

We recommend our games for ages 12 and up. We do allow younger players, but some of the game content may be too difficult for them. Those under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. All minors MUST have a parent/legal guardian sign a waiver in order to participate. The cost for children is the same as the cost for adults.

Am I Really Locked in a Room?

No. Outfox has taken the live room escape to the next level. You need to complete a specific task within 60 minutes, but the main door is actually unlocked the whole time. Individuals with claustrophobia can enjoy our escape room and leave at any time if needed. People also can visit the restrooms during the game.

Will There Be Other People With Us?

Unless your group books the entire room, there may be other participants working with you to escape.

What is The Maximum Number of People?

Eight is the maximum number of participants that can occupy a room in a session.

How Long Does It Last?

You should plan to spend about 1 ½ hours. Please arrive 15 minutes before your start time so we can orient you on how to escape! The game will end 60 minutes after you start, and after we would love to take your picture and help you solve any final clues. You can also compare your performance to that of other groups who have played the game!
