An escape room is a real-life adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles using clues, hints, and strategy that are hidden within the room. Players are given a set time limit and the goal isn’t always escaping. We like to add an additional element to most of our rooms and you must reach a certain goal before escaping. Each goal will depend on the theme of the room.
Escape rooms are inspired by “escape the room” style video games that can easily be found online. Live action rooms started in Japan, crept their way across Europe, and were just introduced to the United States a few years ago.
We’re happy to educate players on just how fun an escape room can truly be!
Our rooms are reserved on a rotating basis beginning at the time stated below for both locations. Our expeditions are by reservation only.

Yes, we are a reservation only venue! All reservations are made online through our website. Reservations can be made up to 6 hours in advance. We recommend reserving at least 1 week in advance to ensure your desired room, date, and time. Make a Reservation!
We are the only escape room in the area with only private bookings. That’s right, it will only ever be your group in a room. No strangers!
Reserve a room for up to 4 people for $112 then add additional people up to the maximum allowed for $28 each. We don’t like surprise fees added on at the end of reservations so we’ve eliminated it. All of our prices include all taxes and fees.
All reservations and payments are done online through our website. Make a Reservation!
We do give a discounted price when you reserve all the spots in a room. When you reserve the maximum number of players allowed in a room, you’ll get one person FREE a $28 discount! This means you only pay for one less than the maximum number of players a room can hold but you can bring the maximum number of players allowed.
King of Prussia, PA
Aunt Edna’s Condo (10 player max): $252 for all 10 spots
Quest for the Throne (10 player max): $252 for all 10 spots
Baker Street Mystery (8 player max): $196 for all 8 spots
Bank Heist (8 player max): $196 for all 8 spots
All adult rooms have a 10 player max: $252 for all 10 players.
Lost Teddy (up to 8 people, one of which must be an adult 18 years of age or older for safety and liability purposes): $99 must reserve all 8 spots, no exceptions
Lost Teddy is a 30-minute room for ages 8-12.
There is no age limit, however, please be aware that many puzzles may be difficult for younger children. We do require that any players under 18 be accompanied by at least one paying adult (18 years of age or older) per game room that counts as one of the players. Our 30 minute children’s room, Lost Teddy, is designed for children ages 8-12 and requires at least one adult (18 years of age or older) in the room as well. The adult in the room is responsible for all insurance and liability purposes.
The puzzles within each room are hard and designed to make you think. They are created with adults in mind. Most likely the one adult within the room will need to help solve the puzzles in addition to supervising. An adult (18 years of age or older) must be in the room for insurance and liability purposes. No exceptions.
We like to say we are family friendly, rather than kid friendly. Meaning, when you have a mix of children and adults in the room, it can be extremely helpful as the kids become searchers (they find hidden things adults don’t always see) while the adults are able to solve the more complex puzzles. However, when there’s an entire group of children in the room, not many puzzles get solved as they don’t tend to have the attention span or they are too busy socializing to stay focused on the task at hand.
We suggest leaving very young children at home as they don’t have the mental capacity to comprehend many of the puzzles. However, if you choose to bring them, they must be paid for just like any player would as they are using a spot in the room. There are no exceptions to this.
Expedition Escape is located at 601 South Henderson Road, King of Prussia, PA 19406. We are in the rear of an office complex. Once you arrive at 601 South Henderson Road, simply follow the directional signs we have provided around the building. Please visit our directions page for a map and detailed directions. We have a full parking lot with handicap accessibility.
Expedition Escape is located at 668 Bethlehem Pike (Route 309), Montgomeryville, PA 18936. We are in the Northgate Plaza shopping center with Ethan Allen and Cosmo Prof, right across the street from The Salvation Army. Please visit our directions-montgomeryville page for a map and detailed directions. We have a full parking lot with handicap accessibility.
Plan to spend about 90 minutes at Expedition Escape. This includes a 15-minute introduction before your start time. You’ll have up to 60 minutes to attempt to escape from the room. This will leave some time afterward for fun photos and questions pertaining to the room. These are live-action events. You must arrive on time in order to participate. Leave ample time to allow for traffic and parking. Please be sure get directions to ensure safe travel to our locations. If you arrive after your start time, you will not be allowed to participate and there are no refunds or exchanges.
The games are challenging and some groups may not get out in time. At the end of 60 minutes, your Expedition Guide will “unlock” the room and let you out. This is a great time to ask questions and discuss your journey. We ask that you please do not reveal the answers to others that have not participated, it ruins the puzzles and surprises for them.
Yes, you are! The doors are held with strong, magnetic locks which would release automatically if the power went out. However, you can exit the game at any time or in the case of an emergency by simply pressing the green “Push to Exit” button located in each room. You will need to find the key or code to win though!
No, none of our rooms are scary! We want to make sure we appeal to as many people as possible. There are no jump scares, scary noises, monsters, actors, or any other type of scary thing you can think of.
Our rooms can involve flashing lights, lasers, fog, crawling, and moving assemblies that can be very surprising for some. Please take these into consideration for those who have a pacemaker, severe heart conditions, epilepsy, claustrophobia, are pregnant, or have a physical disability that may not allow you to have the full experience. We take the safety of our players very seriously. Expedition Escape and staff reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.
Our difficulty levels are rated as follows:
Challenging/Beginner: Great games for players who are new to live action escape rooms, but still provides a fun and unique experience for experienced players!
Intermediate: Intended for players who have one or more live action escape games; a fun and exciting challenge!
Advanced: Perfect for live action escape game enthusiasts, seasoned gamers, or those looking for a really challenging experience!
Expert: These rooms are the most challenging of all our escape rooms and should only be attempted once you’ve completed almost all of our rooms!
Still not sure which of our awesome escape rooms you should try out? No problem! Send an email to us. Let us know some important information like, if you’ve ever done an escape room before, if people in your group have ever done an escape room before, your age group, and even your skill sets if you want. We’ll happily recommend one of our rooms for you!
Clues come over a screen within each escape room. There is a sound that plays, based on the theme of your room, so you’ll always know when a clue is on the screen. All clues are written out as text so it’s easy to see and read. In some cases, clues may be a picture that takes up the entire screen that may help you put something together, or a little video hint that goes with the theme of the room.
We give clues based on when we think you need them. If we see you’re struggling with something or need a little push in the right direction, we’ll give you a hint. We never try to give you the answers to a puzzle since it’s more satisfying when you can figure it out on your own. If at any time we are giving you too many clues or not giving you enough, just talk to your Expedition Guide. They can hear and see everything you’re doing in the room so just let them know as all the clues are customized.
Many other escape rooms tend to limit the number of clues needed. Sometimes you’ll get three clues when you ask for them, and if you ask for any over three then you lose time off your escape. We personally don’t think that’s fair. We want everyone to have a fun time so we give you as many clues as you need to have fun.
The reason we give clues when we think is best is because (1) we know our rooms very well and (2) 90% of our players have never done an escape room before. This means that many groups would not know when to ask for a clue. They would either never ask and get stuck forever or they would ask every time they found something and never solve anything for themselves. If you’ve done a few escape rooms before and you want to ask for clues, no problem! Just let your Expedition Guide know. If we think you’re stuck, we’ll just give you a clue asking if it’s okay for us to give you a clue or help out. Then you can answer and proceed from there.
We’re very flexible and we just want you and your group to have a fun time while solving many of the puzzles on your own!
The short answer, no, each room theme is a completely different set of puzzles. Even doing two rooms with the same difficulty level is not the same since the type of thinking required between rooms is so different.
However, we do have two of our Quarantine room at our Montgomeryville location. This means two groups of 10 can each go into their own Quarantine room and compete to see who escapes faster! Be warned, this is our most challenging room between either of our locations at an Expert difficulty level. Learn more about Quarantine if you’re up for the challenge!
You only need to bring your best wits and puzzle-solving ability. All items needed for solving the puzzles will be in the room. Wear comfortable clothing and footwear. If you wear reading glasses, it might be advisable to bring them.
Please do not bring any tools, lighters, or anything of the sort. We promise that everything you need is provided within the room. There is no need to destroy any of our props to find something.
NO! Phones are required to be locked away during your escape time. Unfortunately, we’ve had too many groups being disrespectful with phones in the past.
We promise you’ll never need your cell phone throughout the game. Everything you need is already provided in the room for you. We’ll never test your trivia and you’ll never need to look up anything on the internet (if you ever do, we’ll provide it for you).
Pictures and/or videos inside any of our rooms is strictly prohibited. You are monitored through audio and video the entire time to help you along the way. If we see you violating this or any of our other rules, you will be removed from the room. Expedition Escape and staff reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.
Food and beverages are not allowed in any of our escape rooms. This is to prevent any messes, spills, or stains that may ruin the experience for another group.
If you’d like, we offer a multi-purpose room that offers tables and seating for up to 20 people at our King of Prussia location and up to 50 people at our Montgomeryville location for your use before or after your adventure! A full-size refrigerator, microwave, counter, and tables are available for your use. Feel free to bring in any outside food and beverages for your group, whether it is catered or your own. Outlets are provided above the counter if needed. Paper products/utensils/etc. are not provided. Add this option on when you make a reservation! You may reserve the room for either an hour before or an hour after your escape time for $75 per hour.
While some things may be more fun under the influence of mind-altering substances, escape rooms are not one of them. We promise you’ll want (and need) all of your wits about you. These puzzles are hard and can be challenging when not under the influence.
Expedition Escape does not tolerate any substance abuse. You will not be allowed to play if under the influence of alcohol or mind-altering substances (besides caffeine or prescribed medication). This is to protect other players, the room, and staff. Expedition Escape and staff reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.
These are live-action events. You must arrive on time in order to participate. Leave ample time to allow for traffic and parking. If you arrive after your start time, you will not be allowed to participate and there are no refunds or exchanges.
Our refund/cancellation policy is as follows:
A full refund will be issued if you cancel before 48 hours from the start time of your booking. A 50% refund will be issued to those who cancel within 48 hours. There are no refunds or exchanges for participants who cancel within 24 hours or arrive late.
These policies also apply to any rescheduling. Please be aware that if you choose to reschedule, your chosen date, time, and room may not be available due to other reservations.

In case of inclement weather:
We will reschedule or give you a credit for a future reservation with us. There will be no refunds issued.
Good question! Expedition Escape is different for quite a few reasons:
Private Rooms: We are the only escape room in the area that has all private reservations, meaning you’ll never be in a room with people you don’t know. Other companies are public reservations, so if a room can hold up to 10 people and you reserve 4 spots for example, the remaining 6 spots stay open online for other players to reserve. Make your private reservation today!
Multipurpose Room: We are the only escape room in the area that offers a multipurpose room that you can reserve in addition to your escape room for celebrations, meetings, or whatever you want! A full-size refrigerator, microwave, counter, and tables and seating are available for your use. Feel free to bring in any outside food and beverages for your group, whether it is catered or your own. There are outlets provided over the counter if needed. Paper products/utensils/etc. are not provided. Add this option when you Make a Reservation!
No Extra Charges: Our prices are simple, we’re $28 per person per room all inclusive. Once our taxes and fees are added on, the cost comes to $28 per person. There won’t be any surprise fees that can make the cost upwards of $30 like many other escape rooms.
One to One Ratio: Our Expedition Guides are trained to ensure you have the best experience possible with us. That’s why our guides are dedicated to watching your adventure the entire time you’re playing. Other companies tend to have one person watching multiple rooms at a time and, unfortunately, they just can’t provide the attention that your group needs in the room (trust us, we’ve experienced this first hand).
Dedicated Owners: Marisa, Skylar, and Lola are dedicated in providing the best experience possible. We make sure that our puzzles truly make you think and that our rooms feel like you’ve stepped into another world. We’ve now completed over 250 individual escape rooms. We’re constantly looking at where the industry is headed and how we need to keep up. We continually push ourselves to design better rooms with each room we create.

Private parties and groups larger than the maximum allowed can be accommodated. However, it will feel tight and overcrowded with more than the maximum number of players allowed in a room. It may also feel as though not everyone gets to solve puzzles since our rooms are designed to entertain the maximum number of people. We never recommend more than the maximum allowed; we will recommend splitting up your group. Please check out our group events, The Ultimate Adventure, or contact us for more information.
