Yes. All escape room participants must read and digitally sign a Release and Waiver form before playing.

If you would like to submit your form prior to arrival, you can download the Participant Release and Waiver Agreement for 417 Escape Artist LLC, here.

Please note: Anyone under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian to participate.

Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled time so we can prep you for your escape room mission.

Our escape rooms last about an hour and a half from start to finish. This time frame includes:

  • A briefing when you arrive 
  • 60 minutes of mind-blowing fun in the escape room
  • 10 minutes for group photos at the end of your experience

It depends. If your party has fewer than 8 people in it, there is a high probability you will be with other Escape Artists. But who knows? You may walk away with a new friendship!

Of course! Kids think that escape rooms are a blast, and 417 Escape Artist welcomes all ages in this family-friendly, one-of-a-kind experience.

However, if you want children under the age of 7 to experience and Escape Room, you will need to book the entire room. This ensures that everyone is able to enjoy their great escape!

417 Escape Artistis also happy to accommodate your child’s next birthday party and is willing to modify escape room adventures to be better suited to you and your child’s party. For more information, please contact our Springfield location.

All children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult.

You will need a reservation, and we do not currently accept walk-ins. At 417 Escape Artist, we require that you have reservations so you can choose the exact room, date, and time that works best for you and your group.

Life happens, we get it. To accommodate this, we will give you a full refund as long as you give us a 24 hours notice. We can also reschedule for you at a later date. Email us or give us a call and we will take care of it.

Due to an escape room being a live action game, we can not let you in the room if you are late because it would interrupt the game for the players who were on time. 

Please arrive 10 to 15 minutes early.
