FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
How Much Does it Cost?
All games run for $30 per person, but we do have discounts available! If you rent out all of the slots of a room on a single card, you automatically get a 15% discount on your experience.
If you were interested in grabbing some food and drink before or after your experience at Portland Brewing Company, you also can also get that 15% discount for any group size with our “Brews & Clues” package. Click on the “What is Brews & Clues?” FAQ for more information.
On Tuesdays and Wednesdays we are also offering private rooms for 2-4 players for a flat rate of $100. If you have more than 4 players, simply add them on in the “add-ons” section when checking out for an additional $30 per person.
Do I Get the Whole Room to myself?
If you book all of the slots in a room, you will get it as a private room, as well as a 15% discount for doing so! If you don’t book all of the slots in a room, there is a chance that you will be paired with other groups. This actually can be super fun and you meet some really cool people at the same time!
On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, we also offer automatically private rooms for 2-4 players for a flat rate of $100. If you want to add players to that, use the “add-ons” section for an additional $30 per player.
I Have Players Under the Age of 18, Can They Play?
While we require that at least one adult is present in the room for every booking, if you rent out the entire room, anyone is welcome! If you have not rented out all of the slots, all players must be 14 or over to play. All kids under the age of 18 will need to have a Minor Waiver signed as well.
What Happens If I'm Late?
DON’T BE LATE!
Please arrive 15 minutes before your game starts. Punctuality is key! To be respectful of the other players, if you arrive more than 5 minutes late for your game, you will not be able to play. Give us a call at 503-208-7353 as soon as you can if it looks like you’re running behind.
Escape Games PDX does not offer refunds or exchanges within 72 hours of your game (barring a catastrophic emergency).
What Should I Expect?
Expect to be challenged and have fun! Only about 37% of the team’s escape in time!
The game itself is at most 60 minutes-you will not get any more time, even if you beg, bribe and butter us up! The entire experience will be closer to 90 minutes and will include an introduction to escape games and what to look for to be successful in the room as well as a walk through of the game at the end to show you any clues you might have missed if you fail to escape the room.
This game requires you to think and communicate with others-I know its a lot to ask in this tech- heavy world but it is also a ton of fun and you will find yourself so enthralled in the game and its challenges that you will wonder how quickly those 60 minutes went by!
The games do not require any crazy feats of strength and you need not have graduated Summa Cum Laude to be successful. The most successful groups are those that communicate well, think simply and straightforward, and are very thorough in their searches and their thought process.
You will not need to know any specific trivia or facts. There might be an occasional riddle or some simple math to do but you will be able to solve every clue that comes your way if you just think a bit.
Our Game Masters will also be able to help you with clues if you ask for them-this isn’t meant to be mission unsolvable but the rooms aren’t meant to be easy either. You will have your skills and smarts tested (but way better than any other test you’ve had to take in the past!).
Why Is There A Suggested Amount of Players for Each Room?
Each room has a minimum number of players suggested. We make this suggestion to give every team a fighting chance but you could always challenge yourself and see if you are better and faster than the rest. If the minimum is not met, we will contact you and it will be up to you if you want to play or try to reschedule another time. You will be allowed to play, even if the minimum is not met-it’s up to you and your level of daring.
What is Clue & Brews?
Clues & Brews is a package deal we are running with Portland Brewing Company where you get a 15% discount on both your escape and a $20 gift-card to Portland Brewing, which is located just down the road from our location. To take advantage of this deal, be sure to click how many Clues & Brews you would like for your party on the “add-ons” section when checking out! There are also instructions in that section on how to get the 15% discount for your booking as well.
Can I Have More Than The Suggested Amount of Players?
We cannot go over the maximum amount of players both for your own safety and for your amount of fun to be had!
What if I Want to Play During a Time or Day That Isn't Listed?
Contact us and we will work with you and your team to arrange a time to play that works, we will to our best to accommodate you! We can do private events outside of our normal hours with at least 24 hours notice.

What Makes Your Rooms Unique?
First off, we have been fortunate to work with an amazing puzzle master, Tom Gazzola, who was a local legend and ridiculously clever and talented! He will be greatly missed and we hope to honor him with some fun hidden clues that he helped design.
Second, we have a great combination of straightforward clues, harder codes to crack, and multi layered puzzles as well as some added surprises. Most of our clues have been custom made and hand crafted to provide the most “wow” experience for you and your group. We have something for everyone to feel like they are helping to solve the mysteries. If it’s your first escape game ever or you have played every room you come across, you will thoroughly enjoy it! We will be adding more rooms and themes over the year so please come back and play them all with your friends, family or co-workers!
What If I Need to Get Out of the Room Before Time is Up?
You will not be, in fact, “locked” in the room. At anytime, you will be able to leave the room. We encourage you to stay the entire time and get the full experience but if you must leave for any reason, you will be able to immediately. This is not meant to be a scary experience but there is a level of thrill and mystery, but its mostly just a ton of fun!!
