What is Escape Room?

Escape Room is a real life experience in which people are locked in a room with other participants, and have to use various elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within 60 minutes.

At Fox in a Box, we offer private escape room experience. This means you go into a mission with someone you know. You are never paired up with strangers.

How many rooms do you have?

We have 3 rooms/missions:
- Nuclear Missile Bunker (2-6 participants)
- Prison Break (2-6 participants)
- Zodiac Serial Killer (2-6 participants)

We can host up to 18 participants in one time slot.

How do I make a reservation?

You're just a few clicks away from making your reservation. Here on our website you will find all the information you need about our rooms and make your reservation. If you have questions about reservations please feel free to contact us at

After you make a booking you will receive an email confirmation as well as an email receipt. If you do not receive these two emails, please make sure to contact our location as you may have not fully reserved the room. A game is not guaranteed until you receive the confirmation email and the receipt.

How much does it cost?

Price varies based on the number of participants, time slot and the mission. To check the price, go to "Book Now", choose the mission, select the time slot and number of participants. Without submitting any personal information, you will be able to see the price for the selected time. Please be aware that Escape Room is a live event, and once the booking is confirmed, refunds and cancellations are not accepted.

Keep an eye out on our social media for discounts and offers during holidays and special events.

Team Sizes

The minimum group size is 2 people per mission. It is impossible to accomplish some of our puzzles with fewer than 2 people.

The maximum group size is based on the mission:
- Nuclear Missile Bunker (6 participants)
- Prison Break (6 participants)
- Zodiac Serial Killer (6 participants)

If you need to make a reservation for more participants than the room can hold, you can use the Multiple Booking option. This allows you to select more than one room at a time while also allowing you to enter in your reservation information only once. This makes the reservation process for more than one room easier and faster.

Canceling, reschedule & refunds

Escape Room is a live event, please note that all sales are FINAL. In case you are not completely sure of the size of your team, we always suggest that you book for the minimum number of participants and you can easily add additional participants when your team comes, as long as that the total number of participants doesn't exceed our limit per mission (6 participants).

In case you need to reschedule the event, you can do so by writing to our email ( with a minimum of 48 hours notice.

Will I need to sign a release of liability before my experience?

Yes. Each person needs to sign a release of liability before participating an experience. For any minor younger than 18 years old, an adult needs to be present to sign a release of liability.

What is the age limit?

Due to the complexity of the missions, the minimum required age of a team member for Nuclear Missile Bunker and Prison Break is 13, and the minimum age for Zodiac Serial Killer is 18.

Children that are 13-15 years old can play Prison Break and Nuclear Missile Bunker, however they are required to have at least 1:1 adult:child ratio.

We cannot accommodate children younger than 12 at our facility.

Accessibility and Special Requirements

For wheelchair accessibility, please give us a call and we will explain in details which rooms can be played and in what way. Pregnant women can enjoy our games since the games are not physically challenging. There are no fear factors involved either, in 2 out of 3 rooms. Zodiac Serial Killer is on a bit of a scary side.

What are the rules for people under the influence?

Although things could be more fun under the influence of mind-altering substances, we don't think this is one of them. Having a clear mind actually makes the escape room experience more enjoyable. We also do not tolerate substance abuse and have zero tolerance for customers attempting to participate while under the influence of any mind-altering drug or alcohol. Remember, our staff reserves the right to refuse anyone for any reason without a refund.
