ARE WE REALLY LOCKED IN A ROOM?
Well, in a manner of speaking, yes!  That is the point of the game, after all!  The room is monitored at all times via security cameras by our GameMasters who are onsite and can let you out at any time if needed.  There is also an emergency exit.  So, it’s all good and safe. No worries.
HOW MANY CAN PLAY AT ONCE?
CRYPTIQ Inc. escapes are designed for SIX to a maximum of 10 players. Participants can reserve one or more spots for any given session, as available, HOWEVER, a minimum of SIX players is required for an escape attempt. Smaller groups must pair up with other smaller groups to form a team of at least SIX players.

Groups must reserve all 10 spots for a given session to ensure they play only with their own team members. If you do not reserve the entire room, it is likely you will be paired with other players whom you do not know. Teamwork is essential, so be prepared to play nicely!

CRYPTIQ Inc. reserves the right to cancel a session for underbooking. In that event, CRYPTIQ Inc. will re-schedule your reservation to another mutually convenient time.

All policies are subject to change.

CAN CHILDREN PLAY?
CRYPTIQ Inc. escapes are completely family-friendly.

However, due to the complexity of the puzzles and the intensity of the race against the clock, it is not recommended for players under 12 years old. Players must be at least 16 years old to participate without an adult. Children under 16 must be accompanied by one or more paying, participating adults (18+).

Children under 10 should not attend.

IS THE GAME APPROPRIATE FOR BIRTHDAY PARTIES?
While CRYPTIQ Inc. is completely family-friendly, it is not intended for kids-only groups. Children aged 12 and up playing with adults makes a good mix in a ratio of about 6 kids to 4 adults. We regularly see multi-generational family groups have great fun! The game is challenging and young minds need adult help to focus and make connections. We don’t want the kids to become frustrated by the level of play! You know your players, so think carefully about the best mix for your team. Consider that while we do Sweet 16 groups, we more often do 30-, 40-, 50-, 60-, even 70- year old celebrations than for younger age groups! Feel free to contact us to discuss.
HOW LONG IS THIS AGAIN?
The “escape” is exactly 60 minutes, but allow 1.5 hours for the entire session. Please arrive around 10 minutes before the scheduled start time for instruction and allot 10-15 minutes after the hour for a debrief on the solution(s) to the escape.  Each session begins promptly at the top of the scheduled hour. We have only a very small waiting room, so please don’t come too early!
DO I NEED A RESERVATION?
Yes, this experience is by reservation only. There are no walk-ups. Plan ahead and book now; sessions will fill quickly! BOOK NOW using the link at the bottom of the page.
WHAT IF I'M LATE?

Each session begins promptly at the top of the scheduled hour. Once the clock is ticking, late arrivals will not be permitted into the room. (Exceptions may be made in the event of a private booking.) There are no refunds or credits to a future session for late arrivals or no-shows.

WHAT IF I NEED TO RE-SCHEDULE?
There is no rescheduling at all within 48 hours of your reserved time. Prior to that, CRYPTIQ Inc. will happily work with you to re-schedule your reservation to another mutually convenient time. Contact us to work that out.

All policies are subject to change.

WHAT IS THE REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?
There are no refunds; all sales are final. Credit for a future session will be given for cancellations or changes made more than 48 hours before scheduled start time. CRYPTIQ Inc. reserves the right to cancel a session for underbooking. In that event, CRYPTIQ Inc. will quickly re-schedule your reservation to another mutually convenient time.

All policies are subject to change.
