Get In The Know

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.

The Reviews

  • review rating 5  My 13 yr. old son wanted to do this and I’m so glad we did. This was a fun activity that the whole family participated in with no electronics involved. Our teamwork and efforts (plus a lot of help from Devon and Taylor) helped to solve the puzzle and get us out of the room. Devon and Taylor were wonderful hosts and explained everything perfectly. We’ll definitely return for another family adventure.

    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.

  • 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  Did the "Beyond the Flower Shop" room with a group of six. The room was well thought out and very enjoyable. Challenging, but perfect for a group of beginners. Alisha working the front desk was amazing at introducing us to the storyline and walking us through how to do the game. She provided help at perfect times and we wouldn't have made it through without her. Will definitely be coming back with my group because of her!

  • review rating 5  I brought my family here when they were in town for the holidays and it was a great experience. Staff was friendly, well-organized, and generally helpful. The room was fun and challenging, with way above-average decor that really sold the scenario. The puzzles were pretty unique from what I've seen and the hint system kept things from being frustrating for too long, without being intrusive. I've done both Egyptian Tomb and Outbreak and both were great. The staff we worked with were Selena and Josh (?) who were both awesome.

    review rating 5  This was our second time down and both times were so much fun! This time we did the Christmas Story room and it was a blast! Great elements from the movie, challenging puzzles but also fun for the kids. Amelia was a fabulous guide! We are looking forward to trying other rooms in the future for sure!

  • review rating 5  A fun, quirky experience, conveniently located downtown. Our group of 6 had a great time, even though we'd never done an escape room with 2 other people we didn't know. The staff who helped us (Taylor and Selena) were friendly and knowledgeable. We liked their clue giving system and thorough explanation of the rules. The decor in the Egyptian Tomb game was excellent and the puzzles were challenging, but not impossible. Thank you for a great time!

    review rating 5  One clue away from solving it all but still super fun. What a great puzzle and team building opportunity! Huge shout out to Juan- his help, humor, and support at EscapeWorks really made the night great. Thanks so much again!

  • review rating 5  The most well organized escape room I've been to! There are locked places for belongings as well as a unique hint system that is better than every other room I've been to. Outbreak is a very well thought out and designed room that eloquently railroads the players. Nearly got out too if it wasn't for that pesky red button!

    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  Such a fun experience. I had never been in an escape room before and we went with a group that we didn’t know. It was so fun to get to work with strangers as a team to accomplish a common goal. Challenging room but so fun to do, and Taylor and Matt were so helpful at giving clues just when we needed them. Would definitely go back again!

    review rating 5  My husband and I just happened to walk by and we love escape rooms so we stopped in. They luckily had an opening in the War Games room with just a small wait, but my husband loved the little games/puzzles they had in the waiting room. We had a great time and escaped thanks to our host, Trace! He gave clues at the best times! He didn’t throw too many clues at us so we could figure most of it out on our own, but also didn’t let us stay in one spot for too long! Thanks for making our experience great!

  • review rating 5  We completed a team event here where we split into teams and competed to finish first. Both rooms had amazing puzzles and it was really fun. I think our company team thoroughly enjoyed both rooms. We completed The Egyptian Tomb and the Casino but one of our members in the casino team can't seem to stop mumbling numbers and math equations.

  • review rating 5  Very considerate and nice staff and a great time! My group was placed with two other people randomly and they kind of took over the whole puzzle. The employees pulled us aside to let us know what they saw and they wanted to make sure we had a great experience of our own so they gave us a coupon to come back another time. They were really helpful from beginning to end and it was super fun!

    review rating 5  Did the Egyptian Tomb as a family, youngest being 12. Super fun, Juan was great with hints when we were spinning our tires. Our daughter is already asking when we can do another! FYI, one of our group was in a walking boot with somewhat limited mobility, it wasn’t an issue in this room. Will definitely be back.
