Prices & FAQ
How much is it to participate and where can I book a time slot?
Reservations are $35 per person plus tax. Reservations are purchased online via the link on our website, Facebook, or Twitter page or by Tropicana's website. Online bookings are made securely and require full payment by credit or debit card at the time of purchase. Each room has a maximum number of slots that can be reserved per session.
Is there an age restriction to play at your facility?
The rooms at Escape AC in Atlantic City, NJ, are designed for adults and are an extreme challenge. We recommend a minimum age of 13. All minors must be accompanied in the room by an adult. If you choose to purchase admission for children under the recommended age, please be aware that they may need to be aided by an adult for some puzzle content and for out-of-reach items. Also note that frustration and boredom can occur due to the complex nature of our puzzles and escape rooms. We recommend The Boardwalk as your first choice with younger children. Backstage (dark and creepy) would also be a good choice. However, the success rate is very low even with large groups.
Will we be with people we don't know?
If you would like to reserve the room for your group only, you must purchase all slots for that session; otherwise, the extra spaces are still available to be purchased by others. Our success rates are extremely low for small groups. At Escape AC you will definitely benefit from pairing with strangers as more people with varying backgrounds will aid in your timely effort to escape. Also, our rooms are designed with large groups in mind, so they are multi-linear, meaning many people can work on separate puzzles and clues simultaneously to progress you through the room.
Are we actually locked in the room? What if I panic or need to “escape” early?
Yes. You are actually locked inside the room behind a heavy steel door. Make no mistake, you are trapped, and you must figure out how to escape. There is an emergency panic button next to the entry door that any participant may access in case of emergency. Pushing this button will release the door immediately so you can exit the room. However, this is essentially quitting. In the event of a "panic button" release, a refund will not be provided. To ensure safety, Escape AC staff monitors each room throughout the entire game. Please note that all of our game rooms are spacious. However, if you suffer from claustrophobia and/or panic attacks, you may not want to participate in this activity.
What if we get stuck on a clue and cannot solve it?
Escape AC will be watching your game as it progresses. You can earn hints along the way.
What if we are running late?
We are a live event. You must arrive 15 minutes before your slotted time. Your 60 minutes begins at your reservation time whether you are in the room or not. If you arrive after the door to the room has been locked, you will not be allowed to participate. We do not offer refunds. Please leave enough time to park in the Tropicana parking deck and walk to our venue located on the ground level of the North Tower, down the escalators at il Verdi restaurant.
Do you have a storage area where I can leave a phone, camera, or anything I don't want to carry?
Yes. Escape AC provides lockers for you to leave your phones, cameras, etc. The use of cell phones and photography are not allowed once you enter the room. Please see the game rules below for more information. We want to avoid 'spoilers' that will ruin the fun for anyone else who hasn't gone through the room yet. After your game experience, there is a photo opportunity area for you to get a group picture. Escape AC is not responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged items.
How do gift cards (vouchers) work?
You can purchase a generic gift voucher for any number of participants (including applicable tax) which your recipient can then use for any game and time of their choice, or you can purchase a specific gift voucher and choose the game yourself (the date and time will still be up to your recipient). Your recipient can always pick a different game by calling us instead of redeeming the gift voucher online themselves. Please click here to purchase or redeem a gift voucher.
Do you offer corporate or group rates and accommodate special times?
Yes. Group rates begin at 18 or more people, please contact us, call us at (609)-246-7772, or email us at info@EscapeAC.com for more information.
