What is an escape room?

You and a group of friends enter a new environment together. The group is given 60 minutes to work together to find the clues, solve the riddles, get the key, and escape. Escape artists, who run Escape Rooms by Franknicky, will confound your mind and excite your imagination. 

02 /
How many participants per session?

We can have up to 8 players in ‘Trapped in the 80's’ at a time or 6 players in our Tesla room.  You may be in a session with other people you do not know if you do not buy all eight tickets.  The entire group is on the same team and are working toward escaping together.

Our outdoor adventure s a private event and we can have up to six players in "Unlock Sandusky" you will not be with other people.

03 /
How long should I plan for my escape room adventure?

We suggest planning to spend 1 ½ hours at Escape Rooms by Franknicky. Guests should plan to arrive 10 minutes early to sign in.

Your group will be in the room for up to 1 hour if they do not escape.  We suggest planning to spend another 15 minutes after the experience to celebrate all your triumphs, take photos, and collect your personal items.

04 /
What happens if I arrive late?

Doors will close at the exact time the room has been booked as we may have another group booked after your adventure. We suggest guests arrive 10 minutes early to make sure they are there before the experience begins. In case you are late, you can catch up with the other participants. 


Due to "Unlock Sandusky" being an out door event if the weather is bad you may reschedule or be issued a refund, but you must call at least an hour ahead of time or it will be treated as a NO SHOW. In that case there will be NO REFUND.

What should we bring?

Bring a sense of adventure, a willingness to try new things, patience, creativity, logical problem solving skills, and a sense of humor.  All the materials needed to answer the clues, riddles, and puzzles are inside the room.  If you are doing our outdoor adventure bring sun block and water if you like.

09 /
Can I organize a private event just for our group?

 If you would like to reserve a private time in advance or at a time not listed on our schedule, please e-mail or call 920-372-2731. There is no minimum number of guests for a private party, but the group must buy out the room which requires that all 8 tickets be purchased.  There is no way to reserve a room without buying tickets. Tickets are sold on a first come first serve basis.
