Escape Room Tempe: FAQ

What is an escape room? 

Fair enough, that's a good spot to start. It's kind of like a real-life video game, where you use teamwork to solve the clues and puzzles in the room before your 60 minutes if up! Each room has it's own theme, which you become the star of as the story unfolds.


Spoiler alert: at Inferno Escape Room, you're never actually escaping the room. Instead, you're given a specific objective to complete. 

Wait. We're not literally escaping? Why is it called an escape room, then? 

We're happy you asked. There's some intricate escape room history involved... but the bottom line is that as escape rooms have evolved, so have the games. Plus, Tempe fire codes aren't friendly to businesses trying to lock people in rooms with no escape. 

That sounds scary. Is it scary? 

Absolutely not! None of our rooms are scary, and like we stated above, you're never actually locked in the room. 

Even if I'm claustrophobic? 

Still not scary! You're never locked in, and our rooms are spacious and roomy... just like your living room! 

Whew! Good. We're down to play, then! How many of us can play? 

Our current rooms are best for 2-8 players. Because we have some of the most challenging puzzle-filled games in AZ, we recommend at least 3 players for the optimal experience! Have something else in mind? We're happy to chat, just give us a call or text at (480) 567-0190. Keep in mind, we're only on site for games so you'll need to make a reservation. 

Are the escape games family-friendly? 

We think we're a great fit for families with teenagers and older. In fact, escape rooms are a great opportunity to spend quality time with your kids. Younger audiences would most appreciate Inventor's Secret or Lit (disclaimer: Lit includes some references to alcohol. Substitution of theme to "Chocolate Wasted" on request ;)). Because of the difficulty of the puzzles in the rooms, we find that kids under 13 have a hard time fully participating in the games. 

I've heard other escape rooms pair you with strangers, what about Inferno? 

Inferno Escape Room is private booking only, so you'll never play with strangers. It's the way we prefer to play escape rooms, so that's the only way we'd offer the experience to our players. No extra charge. You lucky devils. 

In that case, we want to make it a party! Do you guys accomodate parties? 

Parties are our favorite! Mom's birthday? She'll love spending time solving puzzles with the family! Anniversary? Come celebrate! Father's day? We know dads love being the hero in Inventor's Secret. Bachelor or bachelorette party? Our "LIT" room will help bet your party started. We can even help you out with engagements or baby announcements! Give us a call or text to talk special requests at (480) 567-0190

Please show up 15 minutes prior to your game start time in order to get acquainted with your game master, the game, and the rules. Plan about an hour and a half total at Inferno Escape Room, because you'll also want to debrief and take a couple of pics at the end. Don't forget to tag us when you post to social! 

That was fun; I want to gift the experience! Do you have escape room gift cards? 

Yes!! Escape room gift cards are the perfect gift for the person who already has everything! Give the gift of experience. You can also pick up a physical gift card in-store.
