You may book a room(s) by clicking “BOOK NOW -> Book A Game.” All games must be booked online at least 60 minutes in advance in order to ensure that we have the sufficient staffing on hand for your experience.
We are open year ’round, even during haunted house season*. 5pm – 9:30pm Thursdays 5pm – 11:15pm Fridays 3:30pm – 11:15pm Saturdays 1pm – 5:30pm Sundays *Except Easter Sunday, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day. However, we operate by appointment/advanced booking only and are staffed accordingly. As a result, there may not be anyone in the building during all operating hours if no appointments have been made.
We recommend our games for ages 12 and up. We do allow younger players, but some of the game content may be too difficult for them. Players that are 14 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult. Any participants under the age of 18 will need an adult to sign their waiver.
Only 1 of our 4 rooms can be considered “scary.” Serial Killer, which is themed to a mature level, features a few “jump” scares. But, it is not scary like the haunted house and no live actors are involved. There is an emergency exit button available should any player wish to exit the room before it is finished. NOTE: Players are handcuffed and chained to the wall to start our Serial Killer game. NOTE: Weekends (Friday-Saturday, some Thursdays) from mid-September to early November every year, participants in the Heist and Outbreak games will have to walk through the middle of the Factory of Terror Haunted House in order to reach their escape rooms. They will also hear the sounds of the haunted house around them as they play their games. If this is an issue for anyone in your group, we advise you to avoid booking on nights where the Factory is open, or book on Sundays during the day.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled time to ensure that your group is together and knows the rules for your escape room experience.
The Heist & Outbreak – 4-10 ppl; Serial Killer & The Cursed Tomb – 2-8 ppl; Fallout – 2-4 ppl There must be at least 4 people in The Heist & Outbreak for the room to be run.
If you arrive after the time on your ticket, and the game has begun, you will not be able to participate as it would disrupt the game for the other players in that time slot. If your group is going to be late for your scheduled time slot, or you will not be able to make it, please call us at 330-536-3327 to let us know. If you give us notice, we WILL allow you to reschedule your room. If your entire group has not arrived within 15 minutes after your scheduled time, and you have not given notice, your time slot will be forfeited and tickets voided. However, our policy is absolutely no refunds.
Perhaps. We recommend you play the games with your own group. If your group is less than the maximum number of participants for a room and you have NOT checked the "private event" option, you may be matched up with people you do not know. Don’t worry, this can actually make your experience more fun. The only way to ensure that your group is alone in a room is to purchase all available tickets for that room & time slot or check the "private event" box on our ticketing page.
Yes and no. The room will be locked at the start of the game, however, an emergency exit/panic button is located by the door in the event you must exit the room. In the case of our Serial Killer game, you will also be handcuffed & chained to the wall to start the game. Please alert your game controller if this causes you any anxiety or discomfort.
Yes. Our Serial Killer room features flickering lights that have triggered seizures in customers previously. If you suffer from epilepsy or any other disorder that may be affected by this, please alert your game controller before the game begins. Also, our Outbreak game involves slightly flickering lights.
Please dress to escape. We recommend clothes and shoes that are comfortable to bend, reach, sit, and move around in. Heels, open-toed shoes, and dresses are not recommended. Please know that, if you’ve booked our Heist room, it is possible you or someone else in your party may be crawling on the floor at some point. So, we recommend not wearing anything you don’t want to get dirty.
We reserve the right to refuse service to any parties we deem as a danger to other guests or our employees. If you or anyone else in your group arrives overly intoxicated or otherwise afflicted, you will not be permitted to play.
We do sell gift vouchers in increments of $25, $50, and $100. They are available for purchase by clicking HERE.
YES! We love doing corporate events here at Escape Canton. There are two (2) different conference rooms available for rent, as well as discounted escape room pricing for corporate groups who make use of those rooms. Escape rooms can be a fabulous tool for encouraging teamwork among employees, and, if you book your event at Escape Canton, you’d be joining many other influential companies from Northeast Ohio. For more information about our corporate accommodations, and to download a flyer for each of our conference rooms, please visit our CONFERENCE CENTER page. If you’d like to talk to us about booking a conference room, call 330-536-3327 to speak to Toby, or email us at
