Overview
More
The Basement is the number one Escape Game center in the US, with one continuous story line and 3 seperate experiences/chapters to choose from. We offer an immersive experience where you will be locked in a room. You will then have a set amount of time to find your way out using the hidden clues, key, trap doors, and items within the space. Various events will "distract" you throughout your journey and make the task of escaping slightly more difficult. Can You Escape? HISTORY: Established in 2014. The Basement: A Live Escape Room Experience opened for business with its flagship room "The Basement" in October 2014 and has since opened two more experiences: The Boiler Room and The Study. Dark House Entertainment is currently in the process of opening 3 more locations throughout the United States.

This was the best escape room I've ever done (out of the 4 I've done). It was very engaging and kept us on our toes. There were many subtle clues that guided you to bigger ones. Ultimately our group did not finish in time, so...More
