Looking for an escape from the ordinary date night? Need the key to a unique corporate event? Want to free yourself from the same old bachelor or bachelorette party? The Fargo Escape Room is designed to challenge your brain and charge your senses. Let your inner sleuth out while you get locked in. Book your escape now!
An escape room is a live-action game in which participants are locked in a room full of clues that must be found and puzzles that must be solved in order to get out within a set time limit. Most escape rooms have a theme or back story to help make the experience a bit more immersive. The typical time limit is 60 minutes. Hints are often available should the participants get stuck on a clue or puzzle.
The door is locked at the start of the game. However, there is a "panic box" near the door that any participant may access in case of emergency. Accessing the box for any reason will provide immediate release of the room. Unfortunately, this also ends the game for all participants. In the event of a "panic box" release, a refund will not be provided. The rooms are monitored by Fargo Escape Room staff throughout the entire game to ensure safety.
We are often able to accommodate bookings outside of our regularly scheduled hours with advanced notice. Tickets bookings outside of our regular hours are $33/each. Please fill out our custom booking form and we will be in touch!
That is entirely up to you and your team. For each room you will be given 60 minutes to escape. Please also allow 10-15 minutes for us to provide you with the instructions and basic rules needed to complete the game safely. The total Escape Room experience should last a total of 90 minutes at most, but remember it all depends on how quickly your team can solve the clues necessary to escape.
Wear something comfortable. Clues will be hidden all over the room and may require bending or sitting on the floor to access. Keep in mind the room might start to warm up as the clock ticks down and the adrenaline starts to pump.
There is no specific minimum age requirement, however, the rooms are meant to be challenging and can sometimes have adult themes. Therefore, it is recommended that participants be at least 14 years of age. Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. We don't recommend participants under the age of 14 for Life or Death.
Escape Rooms are live-action events. You must arrive on time in order to participate. The door to the room locks at exactly the time you signed up for. 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 ample time for traffic and ensure you know where to find us.
Tickets are $28/person and are purchased online via the "Book Now" section on our website or our Facebook page. Online bookings are made securely through Bookeo and require credit or debit card information at the time of purchase. Each room has a maximum number of tickets that can be purchased per session. Please refer to our calendar and click an available time slot to select the number of tickets you wish to reserve.
ADDITIONAL NOTE – If your group does not purchase all of the tickets for a particular session, the extra tickets are still available to be purchased from anyone outside of your group. This means you may be paired with additional players. If you'd like to reserve the room for your group only, you'll need to buy all of the tickets for that session.
If you reserve less than the full amount of spaces for the room, there is a very high chance you will be placed with other people in a session. But honestly, it is such a festive atmosphere, the more the merrier! To guarantee a room exclusively to yourselves, you need to book all of the tickets for that slot.
You don't need to enter the specific names of participants at the time of booking - John/Jane Doe (or something more creative) is perfectly acceptable. Tickets are also transferrable - of someone originally scheduled can't make it, it's perfectly acceptable for someone another sleuth to take their place.
Yes... but only if you book the entire room. You can bring up to 1-2 extra people depending on the room. Simply reserve the room for the max # of people and send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know you'd like to add others to your time slot. Note that not all of our missions accommodate extra participants.
No, we do not offer a group discount or rate. Tickets are $28/per person for Thursday, Friday and Saturday regular hours. For custom or private events, tickets are $33/person.
Separate and Search. There is a lot to find. Spread out and look high and low.
Communicate and Record. Use the white board to keep track of clues. Double check each other’s answers and searches if you are stuck.
Consider Your Options. Not everything is a clue. There are plenty of red herrings. Conversely, things that seem innocuous may be very important.
Stay Safe. There are no clues in any windows, electrical outlets, plugs or cords. There are no clues above normal reach. No need to climb on anything, play with the shades or screens. The emergency escapes are located in the windows.
Handle with Care. There is no excessive force or physical exertion required. Please be gentle with our props.
No Photography. No photography is allowed in the room.
Request Hints. A helpful hint comes with a cost. A minute will be subtracted from your remaining time for each hint requested and noted on our leaderboard.
Thank you for checking out Fargo Escape Room. If you have any further questions about anything please contact us from our website form or request a custom booking. We will be happy to help. Our hours are between 6pm-11pm Thursday-Friday and 11am-11pm on Saturday.
