FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Am I able to add someone to a pre-existing booking?
If your booking is private, it’s easy to add players to your booking! You can add as many as you want to the team (as long as it’s not more than the maximum of the room capacity) and they can pay when they arrive at Confined!
Am I really locked in the room?
You are never truly locked in the room. There will always be accessible emergency exits in all of our rooms. Players are always free to leave if they need to use the restroom, for emergencies, or if they need a break.
What happens if I'm running late for my booking?
We understand that it happens sometimes. We ask that if you are running late that you call and let us know. As we must be able to keep things running smoothly for other players that day, you may lose your time-slot.
We can on occasion allow you to play with a reduced time limit, however if you are more than 20 minutes late then your game will be cancelled and you will be given a credit to reschedule.
What is Confined's cancellation policy?
Advance bookings require pre-payment.
If you cancel your time-slot with more than 48 hours’ notice then you will be issued a full refund to the card that you used to make your booking. Please allow 3-10 business days for refunds to be processed.
If you cancel your time-slot with less than 48 hours’ notice then you will receive a credit to re-book a new time slot. Credits will only be issues by contacting us directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone.
A booking is considered a no-show if we aren’t notified about a cancellation at least 2 hours prior to the start of the time-slot. A credit will be issued for no-shows one time only. If a no-show occurs twice then the credit will be rescinded, and no refund will be provided.
All refund requests must be sent to email@example.com.
Do you accept walk-ins?
Of course, walk-ins are always welcome. Walk-ins are not guaranteed a time-slot. We recommend booking a room in advance. Call us or visit our rooms page to view our available rooms and make a booking. Pre-payment is required for all bookings.
Is there an age restriction?
We welcome ages 6 and up, however certain rooms may have a specific age restriction. Our escape rooms are designed for adults.
Players aged 6 – 14 should be accompanied by an adult as game-play can become too confusing and/or difficult, and some elements may be unreachable. Those under the age of 14 must have an adult over the age of 18. There are no restrictions for players over the age of 14.
