Q: DO I NEED ANY SPECIAL SKILLS OR KNOWLEDGE?

Q: HOW LONG WILL I BE THERE?
A: You should arrive about 10 minutes early to sign in and receive instructions about the particular game you are playing. Once the game starts you will have 30 to 60 minutes, depending on which challenge you are playing, to escape. Afterwards plan on spending a few minutes taking pictures and recapping the events of the previous game with your friends. Remember the game clock will start at the time you reserved so please arrive early. If you arrive late, you will get the time left of the game clock reserved for your play. Unfortunately there are no refunds or rescheduling if you arrive late for your reservation.
Q: DO I NEED A RESERVATION AND HOW DO I PAY?
A: Payment is made by credit or debit card at the time you book your game through our online reservation center. In order to reserve your preferred room and time, we recommend that you book in advance. If you are unable to book online we do take walk in customers if the time slot is available for the game you want to play when you arrive.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED TO CANCEL?
A: Should you need to cancel your reservation, you must contact us at least 48 hours before your reserved time. We will be happy to reschedule your booking, but we do not make refunds. Should you need to change your reservation time with less than 48hours notice, we will attempt to rebook that time with another guest. If we are unable to do so, you will be responsible for the payment of your original booking.
Q: AM I REALLY GOING TO BE LOCKED IN A ROOM?
A: Yes! It wouldn’t be much fun if you weren’t! Don’t worry though, every game is monitored on closed circuit video and audio. In case you need to leave the room during the game there is an exit button clearly marked on the wall that unlocks the door. Once you leave there is no re-entry to the room. Should you choose to leave during the challenge your game is over. The remainder of your group may continue until time has expired or they succeed in escaping.
Q: IS IT SCARY?
A: No! While the setting of some of our rooms may be considered intense by some people, none of our rooms are horror themed. There are no monsters hiding in the rooms!
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF WE CAN’T ESCAPE?
A: You are a loser!!! (Just kidding!) If you fail to escape don’t feel bad. Most groups that try won’t be successful on their first attempt. We will still take your picture and share it on our site so everyone can make fun of you! You can always return to the same room and try again in the future. If you want a real challenge come back and try a different room.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF WE DO ESCAPE?
A: You are awesome! You have managed to accomplish what very few people are able to do. In recognition of your achievement we will take your picture and share it on our site so you can brag to all your friends and family. You will also have the opportunity to purchase one of our rare and coveted “I Escaped!” T-shirts. Only winners get the chance to buy one!
Q: WHEN IS ESCAPE ROOM LAFAYETTE OPEN?
A: Wednesday Through Sunday. Private bookings for other days and times can be arranged by calling us at 337-371-2883
