Rise of the Zombie Pets

An Abandoned Vet’s Clinic serves as your jail while you are the subjects in the professor’s human experiment trials. You must escape your imprisonment, find the other half of your group, and create the antidote before the time is up. Can you construct the antivirus or will you turn into a Zombie Pet?


Abstract Larceny

Your squad of trainee security guards has let a gang of notorious art thieves abscond with your museum’s most valuable exhibits! You could report it to the curators, but you’d rather not get fired (again), and rent is due soon… Instead, you’ve made your way to gang’s lair. Recover the goods and make it back to the museum before anyone knows what happened!


Circus of the Stranded

The Cirque Du Sourire is one of the worst circuses in the world. The games are rigged, the animals are sick, the music is dreadful, and the workers are held against their will under contract! The evil Ringmaster Monstre has arranged his freak show to be the best one around but because of the terrible conditions, all of the freaks want out of the deal. It is up to your group to set them free!


Swan Song

Professor Sigmund Hunt has wreaked havoc throughout the world for years, but his time is running out. Infected with the zombie virus at his mysterious lab, it now threatens to overwhelm him. He has retreated back into his mountain estate, but things have . . . changed. Nature has begun to reclaim the space, and as the professor’s mind has degraded, so have his quarters. It is up to you to explore the chaos, sort through the madness, and uncover the fate of Professor Hunt in his “Swan Song”!

An Escape Room is a live action game in which people are locked in a themed room. In order to escape, they need to solve a series of clues, puzzles, and riddles within 60 minutes. Think of it as a “game night” on steroids!

Unless you purchase a private ticket you are eligible to be combined with anyone who books for the same time slot. If you are interested in a private room just by the Private Ticket option while checking out and be sure to tell us how many people you will have in your group. Even though the room is purchased private you are still required to follow our rooms’ minimum and maximum requirements.

If you have never participated in an escape room before, the fun comes from the unexpected surprises that emerge within the rooms. This is a unique, immersive, and addicting experience that is quickly increasing in popularity throughout the nation! We recommend starting with the room with the lowest difficulty rating since it is designed for beginners. You can see each room’s difficulty rating by visiting the room’s page on our website!

Each group is provided a trusty Brainstorm Trooper to guide you through the room. Your group will have three free hints to use as a team to help you complete your mission.

You can expect to be at Brainstorm Escapes for around 90 minutes. The game itself will last up to 60 minutes. There is a brief orientation prior to the escape and a short debrief afterwards with a chance for questions and photos. Please arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to your booking.

The maximum number of participants depend on the room. Check the individual room pages for maximum capacitance!

The best way to accommodate larger bookings is to split the group into separate teams and see who reigns supreme. Private parties can be booked by purchasing a Private Ticket at checkout.

YES! Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult, and those under 6 years of age play for free! Just check out the fear factor and difficulty level under our booking panels.

All players under 18 will need a parent/guardian’s signature on the safety waiver in order to play, which you can sign when you come in for your experience.

Yes, but there is an emergency key hanging by the door that can be used at any point in time during the game.

Due to the nature of the game, we cannot issue refunds after tickets have been purchased. If an emergency does arise, please call us so we can reschedule your booking to better accommodate your needs.

To guarantee your booking time, we recommend reserving your experience in advance. All of our available time slots can be found on our booking website. If we have the room available, we can try to accommodate your spontaneous urge to escape!

Special accommodations can be arranged in our rooms. Please call prior to your booking so we may plan accordingly.

All players under 18 will need a parent/guardian’s signature on the safety waiver in order to play, which you can sign when you come in for your experience.
