Spellbound’s 7 Steps to Playing It Safe

Updated 6/1/2021

An escape room is the perfect way to beat your boredom, get out of the house, and get the brain workout you’ve been craving! We’re doing our part to make sure Spellbound Escapes is safe and fun for all our guests with changes to booking, game rooms, lobby, and more.  

On your next visit you’ll notice some visible changes, like hand sanitizer stations, but there is plenty more going on behind the scenes! 

As of June 1, 2021, we’re putting control in your hands by offering both Private and Public games:

Options available for your Game Experience
Public Games – Players are mixed with other groups (All Players must wear a Mask regardless of vaccination status)
Private Games – Booking privately means you’ll only play with the people you bring. (Per the CDC Guidelines if you are Fully Vaccinated you may remove your mask once in the room)

The pandemic puzzle is a challenge that will take teamwork to solve! That’s why we’re counting on you to do your part in our 7 Steps to Playing It Safe!

Private Games – Choose your favorite way to play– in a mixed group or a private experience, control is in your hands!

Please remember that masks are required in the entrance, lobby, and exit portions of your visit regardless of vaccination status. Select from Private or Public game at checkout to let us know whether you’re looking to join a public group or bringing your own VIP sleuthing squad.

Handwashing Stations – Alcohol-based sanitizer is freely available to guests before and after gameplay.

Your Gamemaster will ask you to clean your hands before entering the game, and additional hand cleaning opportunities will be available as you depart– even mid-game if you really want, just keep ‘em clean!

Social Distancing – We’ve added physical barriers to our lobby and increased the gap between seating areas to allow you to interact with your Gamemaster from a comfortable distance.

Additional exits have been added to eliminate overlapping group arrivals and departures. We love having a little personal space, don’t you? 

Aggressive Sanitization – Cleaning between games has been the Spellbound way since day one, but we’ve upped the intensity of our post-game cleanup routine to make sure every contact surface is freshly sanitized for each group.

We find it’s a lot easier to have fun when you know that every key, clue, and artifact has just been cleaned especially for you!

No-Contact Digital Booking & Waivers – Online booking from anywhere, any time is easier than ever– and once you’ve made your reservation you can complete your waiver digitally from your smartphone, tablet, or computer in advance!  

As the late, great Mitch Hedberg once said: “We don’t need to bring ink and paper into this.”

Facemasks – All staff, Gamemasters, and guests at Spellbound Escapes must wear protective masks covering their nose and mouth during arrival, time in the lobby or hallways, and exits. During public games face coverings must be worn; in private games players may remove their mask during gameplay only.

Reducing the potential for airborne particles makes it easier for us to keep game spaces safe and clean, and also makes it easier for you to pretend you’re a ninja, spy, or wild west bandit. Undeniable benefits. 

Environmental Enhancements – In addition to aggressive cleaning of all surfaces, we’re going above and beyond with new air filtration units in our game rooms and additional UV-light sanitization measures to make sure even our most complicated props and artifacts are clean and ready to handle. 

Like any good escape enthusiasts, we’re leaving no detail unchecked!



We have one simple objective that guides us: keeping our guests and our employees safe. This has been at the center of our conversations every step of the way as we push onward through these uncertain times. Our top priority is maintaining a safe, fun, and healthy environment for every person who walks through our doors.


We are closely following the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC)  guidelines and recommendations, and we encourage our guests to join us in this proactive approach by following all CDC-recommended guidelines during your visit to Spellbound, including (but not limited to):


  • Avoid handshaking – use other non-contact methods of greeting
  • Clean your hands frequently by washing for at least 20 seconds with soap and water
  • Wear a facemask that fully covers your mouth and nose in public
  • Maintain at least 6′ distance between yourself and any persons that you do not live with
  • Avoid touching your mouth, nose, eyes, and face
  • Minimize contact with surfaces like doorknobs, tables, desks, and handrails, and wash your hands after touching these or any other frequently handled surfaces
  • Stay home if you or someone in your household are sick
