Where can we play Escape the Box?
We are based in Austin, but run Escape the Box in most major cities, including Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Houston, Denver, San Antonio, Kansas City, Portland, Orlando, Las Vegas and Miami. In Austin, we have several neighborhoods to choose from including SoCo, East 6th, the Drag, Clarksville and Downtown. If you are looking for a luxurious retreat, we have partnered with Ted Turner Reserves in Vermejo, New Mexico. We can layer our experience on other environments such as museums, resorts, botanical gardens, zoos, aquariums, wildlife preserves, and theme parks. We will also write a new Escape the Box experience in a neighborhood of your choosing, just ask!
What is an escape room outdoors with time travel?
We use elements of escape rooms like puzzle solving and code breaking. However, we apply that to real areas, not staged ones. It is also like an Escape Room because there is a narrative about an “emergency” that must be solved. Unlike an Escape Room we help you explore a real place. We develop content that focuses on public art, music, businesses, signage and more to create our story. The narrative world you enter begins on the cusp of your graduation from Time Travel Academy. All the challenges and activities you do will be centered around this theme.
Does it have to be outdoors?
No. If you’d like to customize something indoors, we can build that, as well.
How long does it take?
Escape the Box typically runs between 2-4 hours, but we can customize any timeline to fit your group's needs and objectives.
What do I have to do?
Once you book an event and sign a contract, we’ll schedule out a planning meeting with your team. From this, we’ll develop an event plan, set deadlines and keep you updated on our progress. Outside of submitting any content you want us to develop, you don’t have much else to worry about.
Can you help us book venues?
Absolutely! We have relationships with many venues, restaurants, and hotels. Let us know what you are looking for and we’ll gladly give you some great options.
Can everyone participate?
Yes! While some people can attend your event in-person, often others need to stay home or have mobility limitations. Though all our events take place onsite, we provide remote or stationary roles that are fun and meaningful.
What is your content like?
The content we create is funny, irreverent, and uses a variety of media. You might interact with concert posters, telegrams, postcards, movie tickets, maps, newspapers, QR Codes and more. We design and create all materials in-house. Our challenges and activities consist of puzzle-solving, riddles, way-finding, scavenger hunting, decoding, and creative photos. Our story-driven content is deeply engaging, and effectively drives connectivity within your team.
Do you have discounts?
Yes, we offer discounts for repeat clients, multiple event purchases, and for nonprofits. We often have other seasonal or temporary promotions - just ask!
