  1. The Christmas Checklist is far
    from complete.
    It is becoming quite the feat.

    Santa is hiring kids as
    To become Honorary Elves.

    So Santa, the reindeer,
    And the sleigh
    Can load up the packages
    And get on their way.

  2. Everyone is ready to take
    As soon as the checklist
    Is done tonight.

    Grab your Brother, your
    Your Mom and Dad.
    What the heck, ask your
    Grandparents, too.
    You'll be glad.

  3. We need everyone's help
    To make it through.
    So sign-up today to join
    the EHR Crew.



  1. The children should be nestled
    All snug in their beds,
    With visions of presents dancing in their heads.
    While milk and cookies sit and wait
    For the arrival of the man with a jolly gait.

    But what to wondering eyes should appear,
    It is NOT a sleigh full of toys
    Pulled by eight tiny reindeer.

    For all is not right
    At the North Pole tonight.
    As the checklist is long.
    And everything that could
    Has gone wrong.

  2. It is an hour before Christmas,
    And Santa has not taken flight.
    He’s looking for assistance,
    With a deadline of midnight.

    Not a creature is stirring
    Except for the mice.
    Things have gone missing
    As they are being more
    Naughty than nice.

    The reindeer fled,
    Before they were fed.
    Now Dancer, Now Cupid, and Vixen.
    Please, come eat your fixins.

  3. The stockings are empty
    In need of some care.
    The chimney sits completely bare.

    Toys are unfinished,
    Presents undressed,
    And letters unopened.
    Oh what a mess!

    Santa is ready as tis the date.
    But Christmas is in danger of being late.
    With time running short,
    The elves need your support.

  4. We’re glad you’re here.
    As the time draws near.
    Consider yourselves
    As Honorary Elves.

    On the wall
    Is what all to find.
    Place a check as you go
    As not to fall behind.

    Now go save Christmas.
    Don’t delay.
    Get Santa on his Merry way.

Let us take you back to the Wild West. You will walk into a late 1800s wild west saloon. You will need your wits about you to find your six shooter in this multi-linear room. This room will challenge even the most veteran escape room enthusiasts. But, don’t worry if you are new to escape rooms. We won’t leave you out to dry like a tumbleweed blowing across the plains.



It's the 1800's in the Wild West. You were at Rusty Wheel Saloon and ended up gambling. A group of outlaws accused you of cheating. They challenged you to a shootout at High Noon. Unfortunately, you must have left your six shooter somewhere in the saloon. The saloon doesn't open until later this afternoon. Wendell, the barkeep, likes to hide things and lock the bar up pretty tight. You know some of his secrets and tricks. You wrote them in your journal. However, you left your journal in the saloon as well. It's 11 am. You and your posse have one hour to find your journal, uncover the secrets and tricks and find Gertie, your trusted pistol, before Zeke and his band of outlaws come back. Otherwise, you'll be pushing up daisies. Good Luck, Partner!

Welcome to EHR High School. You will go into a modern day high school sports locker room. We won’t make you go to classes and you don’t need any sports knowledge. However, we will be testing your skills in this room. Your goal is simple. Find your stolen playbook before the championship game without getting caught. This is a good escape room for first timers. But, there are also challenging puzzles in this multi-linear room for those that have already done multiple escape rooms.



EHR High School has had a great football season. We are undefeated so far on the road to the championship. We play you guys, the Rival High School Escapers, for the championship and are looking forward to the challenge. However, our mascot didn't want to play fair. He stole the Rival HS playbook. We don't think that is right and don't want to win that way. So, we are going to let you into our locker room. We believe that she has hidden the playbook somewhere in there. You need to find your playbook and get out! Our mascot is a shifty gIRL. I'm sure it won't be as simple as getting in and finding it just laying around. You'll certainly have to figure out some things to find it. Here is the catch. You only have one hour to find it while the team is out practicing. If they catch you in our locker room, they will think you broke in to steal our playbook.

What is an escape room?

An escape room is a live form of entertainment offering challenges, puzzles, clues and riddles that players must decipher and solve in order to escape a themed room.

Are we locked in?

Yes and no. Yes, the door is locked and you’ll need to use your skills to figure out how to unlock it to “escape”. However, there will always be at least one way to get out without a key or code for emergencies.

How many people can play?

It can vary from game to game. Our first two games will be designed for a maximum of 6 players per game.

Will we be paired with strangers?

Yes, that is possible if you book less than the full amount of players and another group books for the same game and time. But, don’t think of them as strangers. Think of them as people that may be able to come up with different ideas and help you escape the room.

What if we don’t want to be grouped with strangers?

You can simply book all available spots for a specific date/time to ensure that no one else can book with you.

How long does a game take?

One hour or less. You’ll have 60 minutes to complete a game. If you are able to get out early, awesome! If you are unable to beat the game in 60 minutes, we’ll come let you out.

What do we get if we escape?

Bragging rights! Then, you can throw down a challenge to your friends to see if they can beat your time.

Can we change our date and/or time after we’ve booked?

Possibly. Please contact us at or stop in during our business hours and we’ll do our best to find another date and/or time for you.

Can I cancel or just get a refund?

Sorry, all sales are final. But, we can help you find a date or time that can work for you.

How old do we have to be?

We have designed these rooms for adults. But, children 12 and up are allowed as long as there is at least 1 adult for every two children 14 and under. A parent or guardian will need to sign a waiver for any player under the age of 16.

What do I need to bring?

Your wits, common sense and logical thinking. No food or drink will be allowed in the rooms. Everything you need to solve the games will be in the rooms. No cellphones or outside items can be used once the game starts.

Are walk-ins accepted?

We will accept walk-in groups, but keep a few things in mind. First, scheduled times have precedence, so if you walk in and all the spots are booked for that evening there is nothing we can do for you. Second, if there are no rooms booked for a night, we may not be in the office during those hours. Calling ahead is highly suggested.

Do I need to book in advance?

It is strongly recommended to make sure that your spots are reserved.

What time should we arrive?

Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled start time. Since we book specific times, we need to keep on our schedule.

My company/organization wants to do a group outing. Can we do that?

Yes, we can do group outings. Please contact us at to work out the details.
