General Terms
Your participation in the Ocracoke Escape Room activities is subject to the following Rules of Use. If you refuse to accept and/or comply with these Rules of Use, you will not be able to participate in any Ocracoke Escape Room activities.

You are encouraged to carefully read over the information below, as booking your reservation verifies all material has been reviewed by all players in your booking group prior to arrival. Booking an event at the Ocracoke Escape Room indicates your consent to these Terms and Conditions.

All minors (under 18) MUST have someone that is 18 or over, who is responsible for their welfare, in the room with them at all times. Bookings can only be made by adults 18 and over.

Escape Room Rules
Arrive 15 minutes early or you may not be able to participate. Please allow more time than you think you might need. Parking is limited at Community Square.
Cell phones, cameras, lighters, pens, or paper are forbidden during the game. Players will not be allowed to take these items into our escape room.
Once you have entered the Escape Room, the door you entered through will remain closed. Attempting to leave the room through this door is only permitted for emergencies, and will result in immediate disqualification from game play for any other reasons. Reentering is not permitted and no refunds will be granted.
Once the clock begins, you will have 60 minutes to find clues and solve puzzles to find the way out of the room.
When 60 minutes is up and you have not been successful with exiting the remaining door that was locked in game play, Ocracoke Escape’s staff will come into the Escape Room and assist all players with exit at that point.

During game play nothing needs to be broken or forced open, so have fun but please do NOT destroy the props for future gamers. Our games are about finesse not strength, and remember to use your brain not your brawn.  
Please do not remove anything from the rooms and please LEAVE KEYS IN LOCKS and CLUES ON TABLES once challenge has been completed.

Anything that is broken or removed from the room during game play, as well as any damage that forces Ocracoke Escape to close the escape room any length of time will be charged to the group and split between all registered players for that game.

Please follow all written and verbal instructions our game masters provide prior to entering room; they are there for your safety, not to trick you. Remember, SAFETY FIRST, to ensure a fun experience for all attendees.
If we observe any potentially risky or unruly behavior, we will enter the room and stop the game. There will be no refund or readmission.
