Each participant will need to sign a waiver prior to starting an escape room experience. Guests under age 18 will need signed waivers from a legal guardian, even if that guardian is not attending. Please note that everyone who enters the escape room experience will need to pay admission.

Bathrooms are available on site before and during your adventure. 

Your game guide will then get you started on your adventure, and will be available to answer any questions you may have.

What to Expect during the Experience:

Escape rooms are immersive puzzle experiences, and Sure Lock Escapes’ experiences all require teamwork to complete.

Sure Lock Escapes has 4 experiences, 3 are 70 minutes long and our Guardians' Grove room is the first 100 minute experience in Washington, with the countdown starting when you enter the experience.

You will never be actually locked inside any escape room. You may leave the room at any time; however, the clock will not stop if you leave the room.

During the experience, you will have the ability to contact the game guide, who will be watching your progress through the puzzles in order to ensure they are all functioning correctly for you.

Though you will be allowed to bring your phones into the room with you, we ask that you step out to take calls. You may use your phone's flashlight and you may take pictures during your experience if you want! 

Your experience ends when you have either solved your way out the experience or when the timer runs out!


Most Sure Lock Escapes is wheelchair accessible; however, there are individual puzzles within each escape room that may not be within reach or within sight of a wheelchair. The floor in parts of the Guardians' Grove room is compacted bark. 

Most puzzles will be accessible and solvable to those with hearing impairments. However, there are individual puzzles within each escape room that require the use of sound clues.
