About Us

Game Image

Garwood NJ

Garwood's original real life escape game experience! Located in a prime spot next to Crunch Fitness in the Kings Shopping Center, up to 6 players will be challenged in this new attraction by working together to find clues, solve puzzles, and pick locks that will free them from the game room. Do you have what it takes to escape? Our location is just steps from the Garwood NJ Transit Station with an average of 52 mins from NY Penn Station on the Raritan Valley Line. We are minutes off exit 137 of the Garden State Parkway and within 1 mile of downtown Westfield and Cranford!

FAQs

To view an answer, select a question below:

How long will the experience last?

Your entire experience will normally take over 1 hour, but it does depend how smart you are! The game itself can last up to 60 minutes, and we will give you a video briefing before your game starts, and drinks and a photo after your game.

What skills do I need to play?

No special skills or knowledge are required to play the games, apart from a decent understanding of English.

May I leave the room in the middle of the game?

It is better for your experience to stay in the game until you escape, although in an emergency you can always leave the game.

What if we need help during the game?

Your group will be assigned a personal Game Master to guide you through your experience. If you are really stuck, you may ask for a hint!

May I book a large group or a private event?

Yes you can! You'll need to contact the venue individually and they will be able to advise on what is best for your group.

Will we play with other groups?

No! You'll never be paired with other players in our game rooms.

Who can play the game?

Anyone can play our games in groups of 2-6 players. We recommend that children under the ages of 7 do not play as they might not understand the games (but they are welcome to accompany you for free). Participants under 18 years of age, must have a waiver signed by a parent or a legal guardian at the time of their experience. Families are encouraged to play together but anyone under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

Can I use Groupons at your venue?

Yes you can, as long as it's a valid offer. Sometimes it won't be valid against a particular game because we've installed a new one since the Groupon was bought. You can always give us a call and we'll be able to advise. You won't be able to use Groupons against Group or Corporate events or if you want to start different games at the same time.

What escape game do you recommend for our first escape game experience? For an experienced player?

All of our escape games are challenging but some more so than others. We recommend if you have never played an escape game before, to try our Cuba Crisis or Antidote games! They have a difficulty rating of 7.2 and 6.9. If you have some experience and would like to try our medium difficulty rooms we recommend Arizona Shootout (8.1) or Th3 Cod3 (8.2)! Finally if you are up for our most challenging rooms, try Budapest Express with an 8.8 rating or our hardest room, Under Pressure with a full 10+ difficulty rating!

What happens if I arrive late?

The door to the room closes exactly at the time you signed up for. Please arrive 15 – 20 minutes early to make sure you are there before the room is locked. We may be able to get you into the room after your allotted time, but if we can you will have time deducted. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.

Are mobile phones permitted?

Mobile phones are not allowed to be used in the room. The use of electronic devices or any outside tools are strictly prohibited. We provide a safe place in each game room for you to store your phone and belongings while you play!

What is your cancellation policy?

We regret that tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded after purchase. We may be able to change your game to an alternative slot or provide credit for a future game. Please call the venue for more details.
