Mystery! Suspense! Surprise! You’re not just solving puzzles, you are part of the story. EscapeWorks provides you with more than a room, you are immersed in a world where you depend on your cleverness and wits to engage puzzles and overcome obstacles. With every challenge conquered more of the story unfolds. It’s more than just an escape, it’s an adventure!
Pick a date and escape experience; make your reservation and payment online. It’s that easy. If you have any trouble making your booking just give us a call and we will be happy to assist you.
When you arrive for your experience you will get a brief orientation and then it’s time to get trapped in a highly detailed, themed environment with an exciting plot, complete with twists.
Challenges both mental and physical will stand in your way as you work toward escape. Will you make it before time runs out?
We offer you an experience different from other classic activities done as a group. You can test and enhance your concentration, observation, problem solving, and decision making skills, all while having great fun.
The challenge level varies for each theme. Each game is designed to be completed in 60 minutes with observational and problem solving skills. You do not need any special talent other than using your brain and acting fast. This does not necessarily mean that everybody will finish the game in time.
Our escape rooms are recommend for ages 12 and up. Younger guests may still enjoy the experience but could find some of the challenges too difficult and/or some of the themes and content unsettling. Parental discretion is advised. Guests 14 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult.
If you do not book the entire room you may be paired with other players.
Arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled start time for a brief orientation.
Yes. Safety will be covered in your orientation. Rooms are monitored by your game master and there is an exit button that can be used in the event of an emergency.
Games are nonrefundable for no shows and last minute cancellations; however, we understand that plans can change, we can reschedule your game if you contact us at least 24 hours prior to your reservation.
Suspense is a common part of our escape rooms and some of the games may have a creepy theme and/or some surprises. It just depends on what scares you. If you are concerned simply discuss it with your gamemaster when you arrive and he/she will do their best to accommodate scaredy cats.
There are many computer games in which you proceed by finding hidden objects and/or solving puzzles. Myst, Silent Hill, The Room, are good examples. In addition to TV shows such as The Crystal Maze, Helevator, and Legends of the Hidden Temple, films such as Cube, Saw and Fermat’s Room also cover the same concept.
No; however, you are welcome to wear costumes fitting with the theme if you like. We recommend that wear comfortable clothing and a minimal amount of accessories so that you can move quickly during the game.
Me and some of the other Knoxville Spartans decided to check this place out to do some team building during the off season. Totally worth it! We had a great time and a great challenge. You owe it to yourselves to grab some friends and head over to escape works!!
The clues were helpful and challenging at the same time! Fun at every turn! Will definitely go back again!
My boyfriend and I are from Texas and when we come to visit our friends in Tennessee, we always come do an escape room with EscapeWorks. Very friendly staff who get into character! We have done the Asylum and Cellar and both were super awesome. Difficult puzzles, multiple rooms, a lot of fun. Highly recommended!
This was our 1st escape experience. It was just me, my husband and 11 yrs old daughter. We all had a blast working the puzzels and figuring out the clues! We will definitely be back for the other escape adventure! Do yourself a favor and Check This Place Out! You Won't Regret It!
This was my 6th trip to an escape room, but this was HEAD and SHOULDERS above the rest. The immersive atmosphere, the interaction experiences with the staff, and the creative story lines made my groups experience so good that when we got in the car to leave, we turned around to book another room. If you are in Knoxville, you cannot beat this experience.
Honestly cannot say enough about how great an experience we had here! Our group was 3 adults and 2 children under the age of 10 and we all had a blast. The staff are helpful and courteous and the room, scenario and puzzles are fun and challenging. Recommending to all my friends and family as well as planning a return visit!
We loved it! We definitely plan on doing it again.
Just a fun night out or celebrating a special occasion; make it one to remember with an adventure at EscapeWorks.
