Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS #1 ESCAPE ROOM??
#1 Escape Room is a live escape adventure game here in Las Vegas. You and your family, friends, or colleagues are locked in a room for an hour, and have to use your brains to figure out how to complete the challenge and escape. To make your way out, you will have to solve a series of mysteries and puzzles. There are no physical challenges or activities involved in the game – you can only use your brains, and you have to piece together clues to figure out how to escape.


IT SOUNDS CHALLENGING. IS IT REALLY FUN??
You’ll find that this experience is great fun. You and your companions will share a unique experience that you will remember for a lifetime. Each room is carefully designed with your entertainment in mind. It is a fun group activity that is like nothing you have experienced before.


HOW DIFFICULT IS THIS??
About half of our participants escape. It requires no special intelligence: common sense is enough. It requires no special skills, only a basic understanding of written English and numbers. Each room is given a difficulty rating from 1-5. We could tell you more, but that would ruin the experience.?


DO YOU ACCOMMODATE BIRTHDAYS, ANNIVERSARIES OR OTHER OCCASIONS?
Yes – in the past we have accommodated birthdays, anniversaries, engagement parties, goodbye parties, and all types of events. We have even had marriage proposals staged at Escape Rooms in other parts of the world.


IS IT SAFE? IS IT SCARY?
It is completely safe. There is nothing designed to cause fear or harm you, and all rooms are monitored by staff throughout your adventure. You can also leave the room at any point if you choose to.


WHICH ROOM DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR ME?
Our advice is to go to the room page, located here, and look at the rooms we have available. Once you look at those, pick the one you like the sound of, and try it. Our experience is that after you do that, you will be hooked and will want to try the others.


HOW MANY PLAYERS IS BEST??
Our rooms are designed for a minimum of 2 people and a maximum of 7. The ideal number, though, is 3-4 players.


I’M DISABLED. CAN I PLAY??
Our current building does not have an elevator or wheelchair access. The vast majority of the game requires no physical movements, but it is best if each team has at least one member of the team with no mobility limitations. The clues do not require the ability to hear, but a sound is made on occasion to alert people to new clues, so it is best to have at least one team member who can hear. The majority of the clues are visual.? Please contact us at contact@numberoneescaperoom.com if you require any further assistance


IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT?
We advise that only children age 10 and up play, due to the difficulty level of the puzzles. Party members under 16 must be accompanied by an adult age 18 and up.


Do I need to know math/science/computer skills really well to escape?
Our escape rooms can be solved with basic logic and teamwork using clues witin the room. We designed the games to be a test of fluid intelligence and teamwork rather than creating puzzles with answers that are obscure.


What if I am late?
Please arrive at Number One Escape Room at least 15 minutes before your reservation time. The game clock automatically starts at your game time, so please be on time. Late arrivals will be admitted, but your 60 minute window cannot be extended, so you will have less time to play the game!


Am I grouped with other players I do not know?
No, you will never be grouped with other players – the room is yours! We are consistently told by customers that they booked with us because we host private rooms.


Is an escape room scary or dangers? Do I need to be strong and agile?
No, there is no climbing involved. Nothing heavy to lift. All of our puzzles require mental strength rather than physical strength. Nothing will pop out to scare you although the plot alone may send chills running down your spine and your adrenaline may spike as you get closer to the end and time is running out.


What if my team and I really can’t figure out the puzzle? Do we just sit there and never escape?
We have designed the game to have a scaling difficulty level so that groups can decide how difficult they want the game to be by using clues from your Gamemaster.


Which room do you recommend for me?
All of them!
