What Is An Escape Room?
An escape room, or an escape game, is a themed game played by a group of players. Your main goal is to figure your way out of the game. In order for you to do so, you will have to look for hidden clues, solve puzzles and accomplish the tasks in a limited period of time.
You and your party will need to really observe all the details in the room and explore every crevice and hidden space. The best strategy to win is to work as a team. You will be locked in a room together and that’s when the timer starts.
This is probably one of the most intensively fun ways to test your escape skills. If you are ready to take on this task and are looking for the perfect place to start your Orlando adventure or vacation, America’s Escape Game would be the best place! This is what we personally consider as the most daring escape room in Orlando, Florida.

At America’s Escape Game you will have the option for either a private or mixed game rooms. If you choose to reserve a Private game, it will be set aside for you and your specified time slot and nobody will be able to book your game on the website. Also, walk in customers will not be able to join you in your private game. Private games are offered to parties with 2 players or more.
On the other hand, if you choose to reserve a mixed group game, the game will be open for other players to join. The games allow from 5-10 people at a time depending on the theme, so walk-ins and online bookings can join until all spaces are filled.
You may come across some players that are apt to using “adult” language. If you or anyone in your party is easily offended or you do decide to bring the kids with you, it may be best for you to reserve a private game. This may end up being a little pricier, but it could also lead to a much more fun experience. Also, your kids won’t have to be subjected to foul language or be playing with unknown people. The choice, of course, is yours. You can reserve a private game for your family, colleagues and friends or pair up with new players in the mixed game room.
Escape Room Reservations:
The reservation can be made for any available game up to 90 days in advance online through their website. You can also reach them by phone at (407) 412-5585 or just walk in. If you do decide to purchase online or over the phone remember that all sales are final since America’s Escape Game is a live event they won’t grant refunds, but you do have 24 hours of booking to reschedule should you not be able to make it.
You will want to arrive at the site about 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start of the game so you can find a parking space and finish the registration prior to playing. All the games will start at their designated times since they are scheduled live events and there is a strict timetable to stick to. Worst case scenario, if you arrive late and you have scheduled a mixed game group, the other players will have to start without you. You can just join the game late whenever you’re able to make it.
If you have booked a private game and you have arrived late, since there are no other players, the game will start once you arrive and after you finish filling out the registration paperwork. The game will still end at the scheduled end time, meaning you will have less time to solve your puzzles and escape. There will be no refunds or credits for late arrivals, so make sure to arrive on time or a little early to make sure to get your money’s worth and get the most of your experience.
Unfortunately, if by any chance because of some unforeseen events you are unable to show up, the game is forfeited. Again, there are no refunds. The game purchase is transferable, though, so if you aren’t personally able to make it for the time you have reserved a space for you may give that space to a relative, colleagues or friends to attend and play. This only takes a phone call ahead of time to let them know the name of the person or people arriving for your game.
