What exactly is an escape room? . . .

An escape room is a real life puzzle game. It’s a fun interactive activity for you and your friends and/or family to enjoy. You will be put in a specially designed room full of clues, puzzles, and brainteasers. There will be a background story and an objective, which you have to complete within one hour in order to escape.

Will I really be locked in for the whole game? . . .

Technically – no - you can leave at any point you choose.

Is there any time limit? . . .

You have 60 minutes. However, if you solve the puzzles quickly and work well as a team you could easily become a new record setter!

I want to be only with my friends in the room, is it possible? . . .

All bookings at PARADOXsquared are private, even for only two players, however - four or more players have a much better chance of winnig, and more players is simply more fun!

How about an age limit? . . .

We are working on puzzle designs suitable for children age 14, but for now, MAD SCIENTIST and HOUDINI'S REVENGE are geared for ages 16 and older.

ZOMBIE OUTBREAK is for adults only!

Minors must be accompanied by a parent or a responsible adult.

Do I need to bring anything specific with me? . . .

You don’t need to bring anything more than yourself, your friends, and a smile!

Is it possible to bring anything into the room? . . .

Do I Need to Make a Reservation? . . .

Online reservations are best all around. You have the certainty of owning a game, and we appreciate the heads-up. It also gives us time to find the Mad Scientist. (He wanders sometimes, and he owns the place!). However, if the slot you need is too close to book online, give us a call. Fate may smile on us all... 815.245.5864.

What if I'm running late? . . .

Call me at 815.245.5864 We'll see what we can do...

What if I'm "under the influence" or "drunk"? . . .

Unfortunately, if you are under the influence or drunk you will not be allowed to play. Celebrate after you win the game!
