Escape from the Room St. Charles

If you’re new to the Escape from the Room experience, you may questions about what an Escape room is, how long it takes, and what the challenges inside are like. Here is some information!

The room escape concept was first developed in Japan in 2008. By 2013 room escapes began popping up across the United States. Many people are still not sure what these escape games are, as the notion is still relatively new. Each of the escape games at Mastermind provides an interactive adventure to our patrons. A team is physically locked inside a room with hidden clues and puzzles that must be solved before the sixty-minute time window elapses. With varying themes, each escape room will present a different mystery that must be unraveled. The locked room will be decorated according to the description, evoking a real-life game feel. After finding clues, you will try to implement their use correctly. If you discover and decipher all of the secret codes, you and your team will successfully escape from the room!

Still have more questions about Escape Rooms? We have answers!

  • What is an Escape Room?
    It’s a real-life game experience where people participate in various activities, find clues, and solve puzzles to work as a team to ESCAPE out of a room in 60 minutes or less.
  • How long does an Escape Room Take?
    The escape game itself is 60 minutes, unless you can brilliantly escape sooner, but plan on being here a total of 75 minutes as we have rules to go over before the game starts and you will likely want pictures taken afterwards.
  • Is there an age limit?
    Yes. Due to the nature of the games, children under the age of 8 will not be allowed in the room unless you book out a whole room (buy all the spots in the room). Children ages 8 to 16 will require at least one adult chaperone (at least 18 years of age) with them in the room.
  • Am I actually going to be locked in?
    NO. Your entry door to the game will always remain unlocked and you can leave at any time.
  • Are any of the rooms scary?
    No. Some of the props might be a bit disturbing to some people (like an obviously fake arm), but don’t worry, it’s nothing like those Halloween haunted houses. Everything looks fake and there are no live actors in the rooms.
