Am I really locked in a room?

Yes. At EscapeWorks we believe it adds to the mystery and atmosphere to have the doors truly locked. However, we have emergency procedures in place, including exit codes and non-stop video monitoring to ensure your safety in the event of an emergency or an individual’s desire to end the game early. Read our recent post Am I Really Locked in a Room?

What happens if I run out of time?

Participants who do not escape are trapped for life! We have a growing number of people we have collected over the years who live together quite happily. (Kidding). An escape room would not be fun if it was not challenging. 60-80% of participants do not succeed in the 60 minute time frame. Please review the escape rates listed under each room. If this is your first escape room experience you may want to choose a room with a higher escape rate. If you are a seasoned clue-solver, choose a lower escape rate for a bigger challenge! If you do not escape in 60 minutes,our staff will take you through the clues you missed and answer any questions you have. You are always welcome to re-book a different adventure. Read our post What Happens if I Run Out of Time?

How many people are in the room?

Our rooms are designed for 2-12 participants. The ideal game situation includes 6+ participants, as more players gives the advantage of additional minds collaborating. However, many groups with fewer than 6 players have successfully beaten the clock and unlocked the door. Read our post How Many People Can an Escape Room Hold?

Who will be in the room with us?

Each game is booked on a per person basis. There are 12 total slots per game. If you do not have 12 people in your party, the remaining slots will be open for other customers. While it may seem intimidating at first, we often find solving clues with people you don’t know can be helpful and exciting. Sometimes it even leads to new relationships!

If you would like the entire room for fewer than 12 people, please book all 12 slots. If you have more than 12 people in your party, please call us at 303-945-6521 for group rates/options.

How long is the experience?

Each escape room experience is designed to give you 60 minutes. How long it takes to get out is up to you! Please look at each room to see the record and average escape times.

Please plan to arrive 10 minutes early and depart 10 minutes after the experience.

Are there physical and age restrictions?

Physical Restrictions: Basic physical agility is part of playing our games. Please have each participant do a self assessment to ensure they can bend, crawl, stand, reach and duck. Please note we are located at the top of a flight of 20 stairs and do not have an elevator

Age Restrictions: All ages are welcome. We have designed our escape room experience for players ages 12 and up. Players under the age of 15 need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Being parents of young children ourselves, we understand the difficulties in experiencing venues like this with small children. While our rooms are not designed for young children, you are welcome to bring them. We just ask that your party books all slots in your room as not to disrupt the experience of other players.

Is there parking available?

Located ½ a block off 16th street mall there is ample street parking and parking lots/garages available. A handy link to use is Best Parking
Close lots/garages include:

  • Denver Performing Arts Parking
  • Central Parking
  • Spot Parking
  • USA Parking
  • Star Parking

Do you do team building/private events?

Yes! Escape rooms are becoming more and more popular for this. Please see our teambuilding page for more details or read our most recent blog post Need An Outside-The-Box Idea for A Team Building Event?

What should I bring?

You will be on your feet for the entirety of the escape room experience, so we recommend wearing clothing and shoes that you can stand and move comfortably in for 60 minutes.

We provide all that you need during the escape room experience. Prior to entering the room your group will have access to a locked compartment for your personal items (cell phones, purses, etc.). You will keep the key to the compartment for your group.

When booking online you will sign our waiver (Our lawyers made us do it) that can be seen here.


What happens if I need to change/cancel or if I'm late?

All changes and cancellations prior to 24 hours before the scheduled room must be done through a link on your confirmation booking email. Please note that there is a 50% penalty for cancellations between 24 and 48 hours prior to the scheduled room.

Cancellations within 24 hours of the scheduled room are non refundable with no exceptions. Any changes must be done by calling us at 303-945-6521 and will be subject to a $35 surcharge per the booking agreement.

All games begin at the scheduled time whether participants have arrived or not. We will get you in as quickly as possible. Please allow ample time for traffic and parking. If you arrive late, you will have less than 60 minutes to complete your room.

  • review rating 5  Their flower shop was quite enjoyable, and Dana delivered with a lovely performance. Give her a raise 😁I've only done one room, but it was a great time. It was a bit challenging, yet did not feel too difficult for all levels of problem solving.

    review rating 5  We were in Colorado for a long weekend and had a late flight home. We decided to try an escape room. We chose EscapeWorks and it was great. Savannah and Matt were awesome hosts. We were excited to be among the 18% that solved The Casino Heist. I encourage you to give it a try!

    review rating 5  Went here as a small group recently and had a great time. Instructions from the staff were pretty clear at the beginning and helpful in their instructions in explaining how to try to solve the room. Trace was a great guide for this experience and would happily go again.

  • review rating 5  We had so much fun at the Casino Heist room today! Savannah was amazing. The team has created difficult challenges and drop hints that are just enough to move you forward. We can't wait to go back and try another room!

  • review rating 5  Troy and Tommy Bohan with my son Paul Garcia-Lance and myself had the best of times trying to get out of the Egyptian tomb. We were seconds away but fell short of solving the mystery and we’re buried alive. Thank you so much for an enjoyable evening and a special shout out to Taylor and Sierra who moderated our adventure ! We have to return for our group picture and another great adventure!

    review rating 5  Super fun night at EscapeWorks Denver in The Christmas Story room. Lot's of great details from the movie make this a really fun puzzle to solve! Chloe did a very nice job providing the set-up instructions and threw out just enough clues to keep us on track. Great holiday fun!

  • review rating 5  We did the "Outbreak" room at EscapeWorks in Denver and we LOVED it! This was my first time in an escape room and I will definitely be back. Alisha was our liason and she was SUPER helpful. What a fun night with my kids!

    review rating 5  My fiancee and I were vacationing in Denver and tried out the Egyptian Tomb with another group of 4. We escaped with 5 minutes to spare! Very good room layout and good props. Puzzles were challenging and rewarding once solved. I was not a huge fan of how they did the hints... usually you have 3 hints or whatever and you ask for a hint when you get stuck, instead they give you hints when they think you need it. Otherwise, our game master, Trace, was very helpful and personable. Overall, very satisfied with our experience!

    review rating 5  The staff was very friendly. Selena and Sierra welcomed us with smiles and helped us get settled in. Taylor did a great job introducing the room to us and giving us a few hints while we were in. He gave us just enough hints to keep us motivated, but we still had to work hard to escape. The room we tried and escaped was Outbreak. It has a low escape probability and we figured out why when we were inside. It was a blast and we can't wait to go back! This is definitely a great idea for a night out, if you want to exercise your mind under pressure.

    review rating 5  I can not say enough about this place! I had the best night of my life here. The staff worked tirelessly with my now fiance to help him plan the best proposal ever. They went above and beyond to create a night every girl dreams about. Selena, Chloe, and Taylor made sure every detail was perfect. I'll continue to recommend Escape Works to every person I know trying to make memories they wont forget. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. By far, the best escape room in town! You guys are amazing!!!!

  • review rating 5  My group almost missed the entrance at first which you have to buzz into, but the staff were so helpful! Selena and Matt greeted us, had us sign waivers, and gave a few tips quickly so that we had as much time as possible! They were great at giving us helpful and creative hints throughout. We made it out with almost 10 minutes to spare! Some of us had been to an escape room before and others hadn't, but the outbreak room was just right for us! Thanks so much for a great time!

    review rating 5  The 1920’s Speakeasy was a ton of fun! I did this with my coworkers and it was a great team bonding experience that was just challenging enough. Our Escape Room Host, Sierra, was fantastic and made the experience that much better!

  • review rating 5  This was our very first Escape room we've ever done and it was the perfect choice. Both our guides were phenomenal! Energetic and you can clearly tell they enjoy what they do. We experienced the Egyptian Tomb and finished with 4:33 left on the clock. Next we did the Beyond the Flower Shop. We barely missed it but we had a blast. Will definitely be back!!!!

    review rating 5  Had a great work team retreat activity here. Loved the puzzles and escaping the "flower shop" (aka: 1920s speakeasy). I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a team building exercise or just wanting to have fun.

  • review rating 5  This was incredible. We did the Casino room and we are now going to go back and do more. What a great thing to do on any night of the week. It was challenging, fun, and Chloe was the best. Everyone needs to try this. It’s also something that is good for your brains so it’s like working out but for the mind. We will be booking more of these and will do them all after this experience.

    review rating 5  “You’ll shoot your eye out!” We did A Christmas Story and it was SO fun- so many layers, different types of puzzles, challenging but never got totally stuck. Selena was a great guide, clearly super knowledgeable about the room, gave great hints and was very witty, completely made the experience for us.
