WHAT IS AN “ESCAPE ROOM?”

FUN! Groups of players join together in a themed room to solve a mystery by unraveling a series of puzzles, clues, and riddles within a set amount of time. The game ends when participants solve the game to “escape” the room (rooms are not generally locked), or when the allotted time expires. Each participant becomes part of the game.

HOW DO I IMPROVE MY CHANCES OF WINNING THE GAME… WHAT SHOULD I KNOW?My heading is awesome

Teamwork and Research! Each individual in your group has strengths and weaknesses. Be sure to organize what you find and communicate with each other. When you find something, pay attention. Did you find a letter in a book? Maybe that letter relates to that book. Can someone in your group open a combination dial lock? If not, you’ll have a very difficult time opening one, even if you figure out the correct code. Done escape rooms before? Think it’s all boxes and locks? Tired of no clues that tie the game together, or bored with random numbers written on the bottom of every chair? You’re in for a treat at Mind Games Clovis.

WILL I BE LOCKED IN A ROOM?

No. Most of our games are adventure/puzzle rooms where your exit door isn’t locked. However, in Escape Your Nightmares, you will need to escape through the locked door in order to win the game. There are other unlocked exits from the room.

ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE ME GIVE UP MY PHONE DURING THE GAME?My heading is awesome

What?! Not your beloved phone! No way!!! You can keep your phone on you. However, we ask that you don’t use them to take pictures or videos inside the rooms. We want everyone to have a fresh and exciting experience of discovery, so we like to keep the details secret until each person steps into a room. Escape Your Nightmare is the exception… you want the full experience right? So we ask that you place phones on silent and in the lockers we provide.

My HOW LONG DOES THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE TAKE?is awesome

About 1 hour and 15 minutes. You will have up to 60 minutes to solve the room. Your visit will begin with a brief orientation before your game. If you don’t solve the room within the 60 minutes, we’ll spend a few minutes with you to go over your game. Either way, you’ll want photos of your adventure. Remember, you are making memories!
