Most props and electronics are readily available through online retailers. We will supply purchase links for everything needed.

If you’d like customized art for the game logo, posters and website, graphic design services can be provided at an additional cost through independent graphic artists. Ask us for more details.

The range of additional costs you’ll need for physical items in the game ranges greatly depending on the economic factors of your location. We strongly believe that to have a great escape room, you must make a committed investment of your time and money.

These items will include:

  • Props and puzzles for the game, and where to purchase them if you won’t be custom building these

You will have a dedicated contact person from our team who will assist you with game setup and implementation, by either Skype or e-mail or both. We can assist you with the room layout, positioning of clues and other questions you might have as you prepare to open your escape room game.


We are also available to come to your location to personally assist with the setup of your room.

We can also assist with game testing, staff training, and room maintenance.
