Puzzle Room Live is an interactive experience, often referred to as an "escape game" or "escape room". Your team will be immersed in a mysterious scenario, with only one hour to find clues, open secret boxes, and solve the puzzle. It is like starring in your own mystery or thriller movie!
Puzzle Room Live is locally owned and operated in Culpeper, VA. All of the puzzles and rooms are created by us, so you won't find them anywhere else.
It's Alive!!! and Puzzletown Jailbreak last one hour and cost $24 per participant, or $160 for a private room for up to eight people. The Mischievous Elf lasts 45 minutes and cost $18 per person or $120 for a private room. All year round we are open Friday evening, all day Saturday, and Sunday afternoon. During the summer we are also open Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. Click on Book Now to see the detailed schedule.
All of the challenges you will face are mental, not physical. Puzzle Room Live is handicapped accessible.
Some room can be spooky, but are not intended to be scary. Nothing is going to jump out at you. Also, although some of the scenarios have you locked in the room, the doors are never actually locked. You are always free to leave the room.
You should plan on arriving about 10 minutes before your scheduled time. The puzzle will begin at the scheduled time. Because we need time between groups to reset the room, we have to start the clock on time.
All you need to bring are your wits and sense of adventure. You will be allowed to bring in your cell phone, but we ask that you refrain from taking pictures or video. You will not need any tools, everything you need to solve the puzzle will be in the room.
Out two main rooms are intended for people over the age of ten, and our Christmas room, The Mischievous Elf, is designed for all ages. Of course, you know your children better than we do, so younger people are allowed to participate, but they may not find the longer rooms enjoyable. We do not charge for children under five. All participants under sixteen must be accompanied by a paying adult.
If you don't choose a private event during booking and your group is smaller than what the room will hold, you may be paired with other people. This is often an advantage, since different people may have different takes on a given puzzle. It is also a great opportunity to meet new people.
If you would prefer to have the room to yourselves, you may choose a private event during booking for a flat fee of $160 ($120 for the Christmas room) and bring up to eight participants.
If you are unable to make your scheduled time, we can provide a refund if given 48 hours notice. Otherwise, all bookings are final. If Puzzle Room Live has to close or cancel bookings due to inclement weather or other situations outside your control we will work with you to provide a refund or reschedule.
