FAQ

Booking (Cost, Events, Vouchers)

"How does booking work?"

For each available time slot on our Booking page, there is a price displayed. The price varies depending on the day and time you would like to visit us. Each price is for a group of 6 players, and one additional player can be added for $25. You will be prompted for online payment when making the reservation.

Same day reservations can be easily booked online; our availability is updated in real-time.

After making the reservation, you will receive a confirmation email with all the information you need. If you did not receive a confirmation email, please contact us at sanfrancisco@paniqroom.com.

“I have a Groupon—How does that work?”

Currently, our Groupon is only valid for The Prison room. To use your Groupon, select any of the available time slots for The Prison room, choose Voucher as your payment method, and enter your code. There is no restriction on the time or day for which these vouchers can be used—so long as your game is played before your voucher’s expiration date! Limit of one voucher per reservation, extra players are $25/person (maximum 7 players/game).

"I see 2 locations, what does that mean?"

Our second San Francisco location in Mission District is under construction. We are bringing you three more exciting themes. More info will follow!

"How can I make an appointment?"

You can make an appointment through our reservation system. The reservation takes only half a minute. You can easily track and change it as you wish. You can also call us or write an email with your preferred time.

"I would like to surprise someone with 'escape' as a gift! How can I do that?"

You can purchase a gift voucher for your recipient conveniently online, here.
You can either print or send the voucher to the recipient and its voucher number can be applied to the reservation when booking online.

"The number of participants showing up may differ from the number that was booked. Is this a problem?"

No, it's not! In this case you don't need to call us. It's acceptable if we learn the final number of your group at the door. The number of participants given in the reservation system beforehand is just an indicator. Group limits are always suggested for optimal experience - the ideal group is between four and six people - and the maximum number we allow is seven.

"How much does it cost and how should I pay?"

For each available time slot on our Booking page, there is a price displayed. The pricing will vary, depending on day of the week and time you would like to visit us.The price shown is for the group (up to 6 players).

You will be prompted for online payment when making the reservation.

"Is my reservation OK? How do I know?"

After making the reservation, you will receive a confirmation email with all the information you need. If you do not receive a confirmation email, please contact us at sanfrancisco@paniqroom.com.

"What happens if my voucher's promotional value expires?"

After the expiration date of your coupon, its promotional value expires, but you can still redeem it at the PanIQ Room for the amount you have paid. For example, if you paid $99 for a coupon redeemable for a $149 ticket, that coupon is still valid for $99 worth of ticket. Our system will accept your reservation, and you will have to pay the $50 difference at the door to play. To make a reservation using an expired voucher, please contact us at sanfrancisco@paniqroom.com!

Accessibility & Health Concerns

"Is this facility handicap accessible?"

Although this facility is handicap accessible you might not experience the game to its fullest and you might experience some inconvenience getting in. Please email us before making a reservation.

"Are there any health conditions that would prevent a player from playing the game?"

Our aim is not to scare people. In special cases our guests should notify us in advance, so we can take out a couple of "sudden surprises" that raise the adrenaline levels or suggest the best room for them. However, the game generates excitement and if you can't stand it you should not play!

Games (Difficulty, Group Size, Duration)

"How long does it take to finish the game?"

It depends on your performance. When the game starts, you have 60 minutes to escape, so if you escape earlier, you are free!

"What is the difference between the rooms?"

They differ in their story, mood, design, size, difficulty, available time to escape and objectives. Each one is unique and offers a different experience. The goal remains the same: "Escape!" We are keeping the rest a secret for now!

You can check out the room profiles in the Live Games menu.

"What's the ideal team/group size for an escape room?"

The most compelling and exciting adventure games occur with groups of four to five players. If your group is smaller you can still play the game but your experience will not be the same. However, the maximum number beyond which we will not allow the game to be played is seven people.
