Am I Really Locked In A Room?

Am I Really Locked In A Room?

When you’re ready book your adventure with us, you might be wondering: am I really going to be locked in a room?

Am I Really Locked In a Room?

This is an easy answer: No! When escape rooms were new, most of them locked participants in rooms without the ability to leave on their own; this was the norm. (Some escape rooms even locked guests in shackles, handcuffs, or coffins!) However, as the industry has matured, most progressive escape rooms like EscapeWorks have moved away from these practices in the interest of safety and security , instead keeping guests on their toes with challenging puzzles and immersive themes.

At EscapeWorks Denver, none of our escape rooms are actually locked: leaving the room at any time, for any reason, is allowed and acceptable. But leaving the room before you’ve solved all the puzzles does not constitute accomplishing the goal! At all times at EscapeWorks, you can always exit your room the way you came in without assistance or permission from anyone else, safely all the way out our front door or emergency back door exits.

How small are the rooms?

Good question! We designed our largest room, Blackbeard’s Brig, for up to 15 people – less than half the legal occupancy limit of the space. If you prefer the widest open space, give this room a try. But even our smaller rooms are the size of a large business office and are never designed to make guests feel crowded or tightly enclosed.

A Focus on Safety

We design our immersive escape rooms to be a thrilling race against the clock. While experiencing your game at EscapeWorks, our experienced game masters will supervise your group via cameras and microphones situated in every room. They are there not only to keep you safe, but also to ensure that everyone has a great time, and to help provide hints and assistance the group needs to enjoy the experience.

And of course, as you should expect from any building, you’ll see exit signs, backup emergency lights, and multiple egress routes in the unlikely event that the building must be evacuated.

If intellectual stimulation, competitive spirit, and the ability to best your peers sound like a great way to spend an afternoon, you’re in the right place. With the heart-pounding, adrenaline-boosting power of escape rooms, you can put your skills to the test to come out on top. EscapeWorks Denver is the top-rated facility of its kind in Colorado, providing regularly rotating themes, puzzles at numerous skill levels, and some of the biggest twists and surprises in the industry. Every visit provides a brand new opportunity to break free, offering unlimited fun aimed at ages 10 and up.
