You have 60 minutes to complete your mission with a team of 2-6 people. Children 12 and up may participate with parental permission. Two additional escape room experiences are also available at this location.

Mountain Room Escapes features 3 escape room experiences of varying difficulty. Will you make out of your snowed in Alpine Ski Lodge before the cold truly sets in? Or, will you find your way home after becoming hopelessly lost on a hike and seeking shelter in an abandoned cabin - that maybe isn't abandoned? Will you save Moonbeam Hollow from an evil wizard's spell with the help of an Inventor's Workshop? Book your experience.
