COVID UPDATE -- ARE YOU OPEN?
Yes! After three months being closed, we are open again. We are taking additional steps to increase our guests safety during this time. All rooms are now private so it's only you and your family & friends in the room. For more information, please read our announcement here.
WHAT IS AN ESCAPE ROOM?
Escape rooms are an interactive adventure game in which players discover hidden clues and unravel puzzles in order to solve a mystery and exit the room within one hour. By solving each puzzle, you will be provided more clues in order to progress further until you unlock all the secrets and exit the room, or until the time runs out. Here at Portsmouth Escape Room, we designed and build our rooms from scratch. Check out our themed rooms here!
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Everyone can participate! Portsmouth Escape Room is great for families, date night, a group of friends, as a bachelorette party or even as a corporate team building exercise.
Please note -- all children 15 and younger must be accompanied by adults in the room. Children under 10 are allowed on private games only.
AM I REALLY LOCKED IN?
Nope. The door will close behind you, but you can walk out of the room at any time, there is always an unlocked door. At Portsmouth Escape Room, we take safety seriously!
IS IT SCARY?
Yes and no, it might depend on the room! While our games are not scary, occasionally we have themes that might be a little creepy. Generally, our rooms are well lit and there are no zombies or monsters trying to scare you (it's not a haunted house). From our current games, Westower's Study, Roswell and Secret Lab are well lit and not scary. Surgeon has a darker theme and might be considered a little creepy.
SOUNDS AWESOME - WHAT IS THE COST? HOW DO I BOOK?
COVID UPDATE -- All rooms are private at no additional cost! :)
It's only $30 per person! Our rooms are public by default, which means you may be playing with strangers unless you book the whole room. If you would like to experience the room with your group only, please book the whole room as a private game. Ready to escape? Click here!
Note: Private events outside normal hours are private room only priced $300 per room (up to 10 people).

CAN I BOOK A GAME OUTSIDE NORMAL OPERATING HOURS?
Absolutely! We are available every day by request. Private parties and corporate groups are welcomed in at our escape room in Portsmouth at any time, and we can accommodate multiple rooms at once for larger groups. If you'd like to inquire or book a special event out of our normal operating hours please fill out this contact form and someone from our team will get back to your within 24 hrs.

ARE ESCAPE ROOMS GOOD FOR TEAM BUILDING?
Yes! Escape Rooms are a very popular team building activity. If you would like to hear more about escape rooms as a team building exercise, take a look at our team building section here! We are available for private groups and events every day by request.
CAN I RESCHEDULE OR GET A REFUND IF MY PLANS CHANGE?
COVID UPDATE -- Yes, you can reschedule or receive full store credit with 24 hrs notice.
Sorry - no reschedules or refunds in case of cancellation or no-show. Just like a concert or a theater play, if you are unable to attend you cannot reschedule / get a refund because your plans changed last minute or if someone in your group cannot attend anymore. If you book a whole room and some of your friends don't show up, we cannot offer partial refunds or credit either. Once you book, your booking is final.
I AM RUNNING LATE, CAN I STILL PLAY?
Unfortunately your booking will be cancelled with no refund if you are late, as we have other games right after yours. We cannot allow late comers into a public room as it impacts the game for those that were on time. If you have a private room, you may still play but time might be deducted. Remember to be onsite 10-15 mins before game time to go to restroom, go over instructions, etc... Rooms will start exactly on time, once the door is closed no one else can come in.
