What is an escape room?

The concept of an escape room is simple. A group of people is placed in a mystery room. The door closes. The clock begins counting down. Together, the group must search for clues, solve puzzles, crack codes, decode messages, and unravel riddles all in an attempt to solve the room’s mystery before time runs out. Everything you need to solve the room’s mystery is within the room itself. Trip Advisor rates escape rooms as the number one local activity for many cities around the world.  They have been featured on reality television shows and have been played by U.S. Presidents. 


What is a Mobile Escape Room?

A mobile escape room is an escape room that we bring to you and sets up virtually anywhere at any time.  There is no need to travel to enjoy an amazing escape room adventure. We bring it to you. Our Submarine: Heroes Below escape room is in a state of the art, climate controlled, Escape Room Trailer — the only one of its kind in the entire St. Louis metropolitan area. It is fully enclosed from the elements with insulated walls, heat, air conditioning, lights, and a self-powered generator.  We can park our trailer right outside your home, office, church, school or almost anywhere you choose. Our other two escape rooms, Mystery of the Lost Cavern and The Psychic Clue Mystery, are set up in our custom designed, fully enclosed Escape Room Tent. With their immersive décor and thrilling props and puzzles, we can set up these escape rooms almost anywhere, indoors or outside. All we need is a 13x13 foot space, an electrical outlet and at least an 8 foot ceiling (if setting up indoors). For all of our mobile escape rooms, a gamemaster will ensure that your escape game experience is a smooth and enjoyable one.


How long are your escape games?

We have 60, 30 and 20-minute escape games of Submarine: Heroes Below in our Escape Room Trailer. We have 30 and 20 minute escape games for Mystery of the Lost Cavern and The Psychic Clue Mystery. Each game is designed to deliver a fun and exciting escape room experience for your event. We need about 10 -15 minutes between games to reset the escape room and prepare the next group to play.


How many people can play at a time? 

We recommend no more than 8 players at a time. 


CAN YOU SET UP AN ESCAPE ROOM INDOORS?

Yes we can. We can set up The Psychic Clue Mystery or Mystery of The Lost Cavern inside your home, office, conference room, or any indoor space. We will need a 13x13 foot space, an electrical outlet, and at least an 8 foot ceiling.


How much space do you need to operate your escape games?

For the Escape Room Trailer, we need about 60 feet of open parking space, preferably on a paved surface, and room to maneuver the truck and trailer.  Set up takes about 45 minutes. For the Escape Room Tent, we need a 13x13 foot space, an electrical outlet, and at least an 8 foot ceiling (if setting up inside). Set up takes about 90 minutes. Please contact us if you have any questions about whether your location is suitable for our mobile escape game.


What areas do you serve? 

We primarily serve the St. Louis metropolitan area. Because we are mobile, we also can travel outside of the St. Louis metropolitan area.  Please contact us if you want us to come to you.

Am I actually locked in your escape room?

No.  At Roaming Riddle, safety is always our number one concern so we NEVER physically lock our players in any space.  You will always be free to leave at any time.


Who can play the game?  Is there an age limit?

Escape rooms are appropriate for people of virtually any age, different educational backgrounds, diverse experiences, all skill levels and different physical abilities.  Roaming Riddle’s escape games are suitable for ages 10 and up.  Younger groups will have a game master with them at all times to help them work together to solve the clues.


What happens in the event of inclement weather? 

Roaming Riddle’s escape games are in a a fully enclosed trailer or tent and can usually run rain, snow or shine.  However, if the weather conditions present the possibility of danger to our clients or staff, Roaming Riddle reserves the right to reschedule the event to another day/time of the client’s choosing.


Can we bring our cell phones?

Yes.  We know that many escape rooms take your phones away, but we know how uncomfortable that can make you.  We do request that you not use your phones during the game and that you not take pictures during the escape game.  Please keep the clues, riddles, solutions, and combinations a secret so that others can enjoy the game. 


What is your payment plan?

Generally, full payment is due when your reservation is confirmed. But we understand that each event and situation is different. Contact us for alternative payment plans.


What is your cancellation policy?

All sales are non-refundable, but we will work with you to reschedule a game if your plans change.


Do I need to sign a liability waiver to play?

Yes.  All participants need to sign a liability waiver to play our escape games.  Any participant under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign the waiver for them.  You can download the waiver here.
