What should I bring with me?

On top of bringing your family, friends, or coworkers, you will need to bring your inner Sherlock Holmes.

Are cell phones allowed?

The use of electronic devices or any outside tools are strictly prohibited and if found using them, you will be escorted out of the room. Most of the puzzles wouldn’t be solved by anything you could find online using your phone, and pictures are not allowed in the room to keep the mystery alive for groups who have not yet played. There will be a secure area outside of each room for you to lock up your small valuables. However, cameras ARE allowed and encouraged in the lobby area.

What happens if I arrive late?

Since all rooms are booked online and in advance, they rotate on a schedule that allows time for instructions, the game, and the solution and pictures at the end. Showing up late would throw the whole day off for future game players, so please arrive 15 – 20 minutes early to make sure you are there before the room is locked. You will not be permitted into the room if you are late. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.

How old do you have to be?

We recommend age 9  or older to participate with an adult. Of course, you may bring younger children, but they must be closely supervised because no rooms are child proofed and we don’t want them to break things in the room or to get hurt. Most people who have brought younger children have fun for 15-20 minutes and then just sit down or mess with things because they get bored.  Ages 18 and older can play without a legal adult in the room.

Will there be other people besides my group in the room

No. By booking in advance using our in depth scheduling system, you ensure that only the people in your party will be in the room at any given time. Groups of 3-6 work best for the rooms but you may have up to 8.

What should I wear to play Clue Pursuit?

Clue Pursuit doesn’t care what you wear. You may wear formal wear or your marathon running clothes. It doesn’t matter. There aren’t any obstacles in the rooms to overcome or heavy objects to lift, but you will more than likely be walking around a lot and bending over to search for things so we suggest you are comfortable.

Who will enjoy playing Clue Pursuit?

Relatives and Chums
Are you tired of going to the movies and bowling? Do you wish there was something else to do before or after dinner or on a Saturday when the weather stinks and you can’t be outside? Clue Pursuit has the answer! Combining technology, puzzles, and some mechanical clues, the games are fit for all ages! Work together or have fun disagreeing on how to solve your way out of the room. 60 minutes goes by fast when you’re having fun!

Escape Rooms started online, but now you can be in one in real life! Come test your skills offline!

Maybe you need a team building exercise out of the office. Maybe you are friends with your co-workers and want to do this over lunch. Maybe you’re the head honcho and want something fun to do for a holiday party! Clue Pursuit is mostly for smaller groups, but please contact us about hosting an Escape Room Party for larger groups.

A fun field trip for your high school or middle school or club groups. A great way to encourage problem solving and creative thinking while encouraging team play.

What if there's just 2 of us?

We wouldn’t want to be too closed minded about the team size, but it is good to know before booking that with only 2 people the game becomes a bit too difficult, which might spoil the fun part. Therefore, we usually advise people to bring at least 3 members. Certainly, if you decide to take this risk and are willing to pay the minimum fee for 3 players (off peak), we will do everything we can do to make the most of your game experience.
