What is The Escape Room Olive Branch?
The Escape Room Olive Branch is a fun, new, immersive entertainment concept. It is a real-life escape game designed for small groups of people (from 4 to 8 individuals, depending on the game). Your goal is simple: Work together as a team, testing your wits and skills to escape from a locked room. While the goal is simple, the game is challenging. Getting through the locked door will require finding clues, solving puzzles, and working together. Book today to see if you can keep cool under pressure and escape from the locked room in under 60 minutes.

Am I really going to be “locked” in a room?
No, definitely not! While the phrase, "Escape Room," may imply that you have to solve the puzzles to get out, our games focus on completing several objectives with the ultimate goal of completing the story.
You and your teammates are free to leave the room at any time you wish; although, we recommend that you stay inside the room until you complete it to enhance your experience.
How much physical activity is involved?
The rooms are primarily designed so you can think your way out; however, you will be required to move around the room and possibly move items into place. Don't worry; it's nothing too strenuous (although sometimes things get quite tense in there!).
I never got my PhD! How will I be able to think my way out?
Don't worry! Our puzzles have been designed to be difficult enough to provide a challenge while at the same time ensuring that everyone involved has a great time. We've designed a wide variety of puzzles that require all different types of skills. Remember, you are not the only person in there; teamwork is required to claim victory. Everyone has something to contribute, so ask your friends!
If after all your efforts you're still stuck, don't despair: Your puzzle master will be able to provide you with a hint or two... or however many you need.
Do I need to bring anything along?
You don't need to bring anything except your wits. You are welcome to keep your valuables in a secure box in the room with you.
Is there an age limit?
We recommend our games for ages 12 and up. We do allow younger players, but some of the game content may be too difficult for them. Players that are 14 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult.
How do I book a game?
You can book your game online here, or give us a call at 662-420-6040.
Will I be playing with other participants?
Unless you book the entire room, you may be paired with other players.
How do I book an entire room?
To book an entire room, you will need to purchase the maximum capacity for that specific game room.
Our rooms have the following capacities:
The Will: 8 Players
Nevermore: 8 Players
The Heist: 8 Players
Do I need to book in advance?
Yes, we strongly recommend booking a reservation for Friday and Saturday games as early as you can because the games fill up quickly. As for Sunday - Thursday, we are open by appointment only, so you will need to reserve your room at least two hours prior to game time.
How much do your games cost?
Games are $24.95 per person + tax.
How do I pay?
Games are paid online at the time of booking.
Do you offer refunds?
All of our games are non-refundable. However, we can reschedule your game if you contact us at least 24 hours prior to your game start time.
Can you accommodate large parties or corporate events?
Yes. The combined total capacity of our three game rooms is twenty-four people - if you provide us with sufficient notice we can run simultaneous games. We can also split up larger groups to run consecutive games. Please contact us for more information, and we'll send you all the details you need to have a great experience.
How long does the experience take?
We recommend that groups arrive no later than 15 minutes before their allocated time slot. Before each game, you'll have a short briefing session covering some basic rules and an introduction to the story. The game itself lasts 60 minutes, and we also encourage you to hang around after your game to discuss how it went and take some, hopefully post-victory, photos.
