F.A.Q.

The basics

+ WHAT'S AN ESCAPE ROOM?

An escape room is an adventure experience in which a group of players are immersed in a themed room. Working together, your group solves puzzles and overcomes obstacles. You have one hour to win the game and achieve your objective: end the curse, steal the painting, cure the virus!

+ Who should play?

Skeleton Key adventures are fun for groups of friends, teams of coworkers, and families. Every age and ability level can contribute, though we recommend ages 10+. To help protect our games, please have an adult join children 15 and younger.

+ How many people can play?

Our public bookings host up to 8 people. If your group is smaller, you might be paired with a group of new friends who will join you in the fun! For private bookings, we can accommodate up to 10 people per group.

+ What is your pricing?

Monday-Thursday daytime is $24 per person. Monday-Thursday evenings (showtimes 5pm and later) is $28. Friday-Sunday all day is $32.

planning your visit

+ Do I need to reserve in advance?

Skeleton Key welcomes walk-ins during operating hours, but we encourage you to book in advance to ensure that you have a spot. Reservations for adventures are made directly online using the "Book Now" button at the top of this page. If you have any questions or difficulty booking, please give us a call at (617) 249-7780.

+ When should I arrive?

Adventures start promptly, so we recommend arriving at least 15 minutes prior to start time. Due to the nature of the experience, you may not join once the adventure has commenced. We do not refund late guests.

+ What if I have to change or cancel my reservation?

Cancelations made within 24 hours of your scheduled game will not be refunded; however we will give Skeleton Key credit to all other cancelations made within 1 week. If your reservations is cancelled one week prior to your scheduled game, you will receive a full refund. To change your reservation, please call us at (617) 249-7780. Please note that changes made fewer than seven days before scheduled game play are subject to availability.

what to expect

+ How long is each experience?

You will have 60 minutes to complete each adventure.

+ Are we actually locked in the room?

Every room has an unlocked door if you would like to leave for any reason.

+ Are the puzzles only for nerds?

Not at all! Our puzzles vary in difficulty, but most of all are quite fun and tactile. Plus, if you get stuck, a hint will be delivered from beyond just when you need it the most!

+ Do you sell food or drink?

Yes! We offer a selection of beer and wine, themed craft cocktails (at select locations), and satisfying plates. Check out our menu here.
