"How do same-day reservations work?"

You just have to go to click on the BOOK NOW button and you can choose from the available time slots.

"What is a public escape room?"

We have 6 or 7 available spots per game in our escape room. A public game means that other players may join your game in case you have booked less than the maximum number of players.

Private games can be purchased as well at a surcharge of $2/player which guarantees an experience with only your team.

"How can I make a reservation?"

On our Booking page, each available game is listed in green. We provide both private and public booking options. Our per-person rate for a public room (meaning strangers can join your game) is $28/person. For these games, you’ll see how many spots are still available for each game on our booking page. Private games are $30/person, which guarantees an experience with only your team.

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

Policies (Cancellations, Rescheduling, Age Restrictions)

"What is your cancellation & reschedule policy?"

All sales are final. We do not issue refunds for cancellations and no shows.

Reschedules will not be permitted within 24 hours of your scheduled game. You may only reschedule a game one time.

"What's the age policy at PanIQ Room?"

Children under 10 will not be admitted under any circumstances. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

For children ages 10-14, an adult must be in the room during the game.

For children ages 15-18, an adult must show up before the game to check in players and sign a waiver, but the adult does not have to be in the room during the game.

"What if we're late for our game?"

Your game begins precisely at the time you reserved.

Unfortunately, if you are late we will have to deduct it from your game time. There are no refunds or reschedules for late arrivals.

Please keep in mind that you have to arrive 15 minutes before your starting time. This will ensure you get the full hour in your room.

"When should I arrive?"

Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment. Unfortunately if you are late we will have to deduct it from your game time.

Remember: aim for 15 minutes early!

"How do I cancel the reservation?"

You can cancel your reservation by replying to your original confirmation email and letting us know that you'd like to cancel. However, we encourage you to reschedule because there are no refunds applied for canceled reservations.

If you wish to reschedule your reservation, you can do it one time at least 24 hours prior to your original reservation time by replying to your original confirmation email telling us your new preferred date and time.

"What if we can't show up after paying online?"

We're sorry, but there will be no refunds authorized for no show or canceled reservations.

The voucher number entered online might get marked as redeemed after making a reservation.

You can reschedule at least 24 hours prior to your reservation time.

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

In case of a purchased coupon:
After the expiration date printed on your coupon, its promotional value expires, but you can still redeem it at the PanIQ Room for the amount 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 in order to play.

"Do I have to sign anything before the game start?"

You will have to sign a waiver liability before the game starts.

Enter Eton Court from M Street, and take the stairs. Inside the court, our door is located on the right hand side.

Games (Difficulty, Group Size, Duration)

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

The most compelling and exciting adventure games usually occur with groups of four. If your group is smaller you can still play the game but your experience will not be the same. Generally, the smaller the team, the harder the game.

The maximum number beyond which we will not allow the game to be played is seven people.

"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 okay if we learn the final number of your group at the door.

You will be asked to pay by credit or debit card for the additional players at the door. The additional fee per player is $28.

"There are more than seven of us and we would like to play together. Can we do that?"

The minimum number of players we allow is two people, and the maximum number we allow is seven people.

We do not allow more than seven people in one room at the same time, but you are more than welcome to play as two separate groups!

"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 and difficulty. Each one is unique and offers a different experience. The goal remains the same: Escape! We are keeping the rest a secret for now! Please check out the room profiles in the Live Games menu.

"Any suggestions before we start the game?"

In order to ensure an hour of uninterrupted fun, if possible, please use the restroom and mute or power off your cellphone before entering the PanIQ Room game area.

Accessibility & Health Concerns

"Is this facility handicap accessible?"

Unfortunately this facility is not handicap accessible.

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

Our aim is not to scare people, however, in special cases our guests should notify us in advance, so we can suggest the best room for them. However, the game generates excitement and if you can't stand it, you should not play!
