What is an Escape or Adventure Room?
Real Escape Bakersfield is a physical adventure game in which you and others are locked in a themed immersive room where you have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within 1 hour!
Are you locally owned? Are you from Bakersfield?
YES! We are proud to say we are from Bakersfield and we are locally owned and operated. We are a family owned business.
How long will it take and how much does it cost?
Please allow at least 90 minutes (60 minute room, 15 minutes before and after) – This allows for time before and after the session. Entry fee is $25.00 per person, $30 per person for the premium room (we like to run special rates)
How many people do I need to play?
You need at least 2 people per room to participate there is a maximum of 6 people allowed per room per session (max 8 people in our premium rooms). If you would like to be the only ones in the room you should book all the slots in the room. Strangers can and sometimes do book with you if there is an opening.
Do you give hints?
One hint is given at the beginning. The best way to escape is by communicating openly with everyone else in the room. Share clues you’ve discovered. Work together to solve puzzles. If you discover new information, be sure all your teammates in the room know about it. A second hint will be given but all the players have to agree. On the third hint all the players must agree and if you take the hint there is a 5 min time penalty. Our premium and deluxe rooms may have an extra hint.
Do you tell us the rules before we go in?
Yes. Our staff will review the rules of the game with you before you begin, which include:
• There is no need to lift or move heavy objects.
• Never use force to try to open locked items.
• Cell phones and other electronic devices must remain off and can not be used inside the room.
Are we really locked inside the room?
Yes! But you will get out, one way or another. No, really you will… we promise…
Can children participate?
Absolutely. However, keep in mind that the games are designed for adults and some younger children might find difficult, so encourage you to work as a team. Recommended for children ages 14/15 and up. All participants 7 and up must have a ticket. Children under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an adult.
Is this something scary?
Not at all. The games are designed to be challenging and fun.
None of our games have total darkness, or things jumping out to startle or scare you. Some rooms may have limited lighting to enhance the experience. Please ask our staff if you are curious about the lighting in a specific room.
Can I cancel my room after booking?
Yes! You must cancel prior to 24 hours of your booking time and you will receive a full refund. Within 24 hours a $10.00 service charge will be deducted from the refund.
I have more than one pass, can i use them all for one room experience?
No sorry our passes have super fine print that says you can only use one pass per experience. The only exception is if you have a group pass or gift certificate.
Can I use more than one promotion together for one experience.
Sorry we do not combine promotions. We do allow Groupons to be used with Groupons. So free passes, discounts, and Groupons can not be used together. This list is not all inclusive there might be promotions in the future that we add or remove from the list.
