What's an Escape Room?


A quick run-down of what we're doing here











At The Escape Room Olive Branch, we host real life escape games which are fun and engaging live-action activities that take place in our specially designed escape rooms. Suited for small groups of 2-8 people, you and your team will be given a back story that includes an objective, and you will only have 60 minutes to complete your mission. To be successful, you will need to work as a team to solve a series of puzzles that will test your logic, lateral thinking, and ingenuity.






We have a variety of puzzles planted in our rooms. These include puzzles that require your powers of observation, some that involve scientific phenomena, some that need a bit of logic and deduction, and some that require a small amount of physical skill.


Escape games are an all-inclusive activity that require no special skills or tools, except the most powerful tool you already have - your brain!


Here is a simple example:


You and your team are corporate spies, and you've managed to break into a rival's business to try to steal their super secret formula, but you've been trapped in by the office security system! You know the police will arrive within the hour, but you've come all this way. You're not leaving without the formula, so you start your search. You see a desk, a computer, a bookshelf, and a filing cabinet. You need the right password to unlock the computer, but what is it?




If you still have questions, take a look at our FAQs or contact us.

  • You all frantically search the room, and a teammate finds a key taped underneath the chair.
  • The key unlocks the filing cabinet, and it's filled to the brim with files. Which file do you open?
  • On the desk, there is a photo frame with a picture of a young family. They're standing in front of "John's Fish and Chips."
  • Another look in the filing cabinet reveals a file for "John's Fish and Chips."
  • Inside the file is a sticky note with the phrase, "Chish and Fips."
  • You try typing this phrase into the computer. Success! The formula is yours!
  • Now that you have the formula, how do you escape? That's a whole new challenge, and the clock is counting down...
