Escape Room Tips:

  • We strongly recommend using the latest versions of the Firefox, Chrome, and Safari web browsers. We do not recommend using Microsoft Edge or Explorer for the Escape Rooms.
  • Make the Escape Rooms bigger! Enlarge your screen to zoom in (Tablets and touch-screens: pinch the screen / PC: CNTRL + ‘+’/ Mac: CMMD + OPTION + ‘=’).
  • Returning after a previous Escape Room program? You might need to refresh your browser cache! Click here for instructions.
  • Using a tablet? It’s difficult to know what to click! For a change of view, use a desktop or laptop with a mouse. Every time the cursor hovers over a clickable item, the mouse icon will appear as a finger.
  • Whatever device you’re using, we highly recommend projecting the Escape Rooms on a big screen and involving others. Escaping is much more fun with friends!
