There's No Need to Fear!

Trying something new and unknown can sometimes make us feel uneasy, but there’s nothing to fear at Tick Tock Escape Room.  As a matter of fact, we make sure all our games are family friendly and suitable for everyone 10 years old and up.

It is true that some escape rooms take the “locked up” part of an escape room more literally.  And some games take it even further by selecting horror related themes (Zombies, anyone?). There’s nothing wrong with that, but it’s just not who we are are at Tick Tock.  We want our games to be exciting, but not frightening.  With this in mind, here is a list of things we have seen or heard about that you will NOT find at Tick Tock:

We will not use handcuffs, put a black hood over your head, make you walk down a pitch-black hallway, force you to crawl on your hands and knees,  or force you to do anything you’re not comfortable with.  (Shhh!  It’s a secret,  but we don’t even lock the door!  You can get out at any time.)  Our games are more of an intellectual challenge, which brings us to one last fear we hear about:

What if I’m not smart enough?

It is true that escape rooms do take a certain amount of collective brainpower, but remember, it’s a TEAM effort.  No individual can figure everything out. If you look around and are observant, you might be surprised at what clues you discover!  When your team gets stuck, they can ask for a clue, which will get them over a hurdle so they can start making progress again.  But even if your team does not escape on time, that’s okay!  We have many, many happy customers who do not escape on time but still have a blast playing our games.  In fact, if you make your primary goal to “have fun” with your friends rather than obsessing over escaping, you’re sure to have a great time.  It’s a game.  Don’t take it too seriously (Seriously!).

We’re here to help everyone from 10 years old to 70+ to have fun and live out an exciting adventure that gives you a break from reality.  We want you to have a chance to be the Underdog that saves the day in your game.  So come with a positive attitude, and whatever you do…

Because there’s just no reason to panic at Tick Tock!  So grab some friends, choose your adventure, and


with one of the most fun escape rooms in Kansas City!
