Nerdy By Nature Escape Rooms

Hello and welcome to our immersive escape room experience! 

Here at Nerdy By Nature Escape Rooms, we’ll go out of our way to challenge you.  Our team of designers has created a selection of rooms perfect for families, friends, tourists, co-workers and special events.  Take a look through our site to learn more!


Our Rooms

The Initiation

Puzzle room, 3-9 players

$30 per player

You have been searching for the fabled Illuminati your whole life, and your journey has finally led you to a curious office containing many mysteries. Could you have finally found the location of their order?  If so, the only thing left is to pass their rites of initiation, but in order to do so you must prove yourself worthy. 
If you pass the initiation within 60 minutes, you too can become a member - but if you fail, you will be trapped in the room forever!


The Lost Treasure of Captain Blackbeard

Adventure room, 3-10 players

$35 per player

You and your ragtag crew of pirates stumbled upon the location of the Lost Treasure of Captain Blackbeard by mere chance and were ready to be wealthy beyond measure. Unfortunately for you the infamous pirate, Captain Joseph Swan, also knew the treasure's location. To keep you from getting to the treasure first, he tipped off the Royal Guard to your hideout so that he could have it for himself while you rot in a Caribbean prison. 
Can you break out of prison and pilot your ship to the cave holding Blackbeard's treasure before Captain Swan claims it as his own?

Am I actually locked in?

Players will be metaphorically "locked" in a room, and in order to fully enjoy the game, it is recommended that players remain inside the room throughout the allotted time. However for safety reasons, the entry door is accessible throughout the game.

Are your rooms scary?

Escape rooms have themes and props to set a mood, but they are not haunted houses intended to scare players.

Is the activity physically strenuous?

Escape rooms require brain power, not physical strength. No climbing or heavy lifting is required.

Will I have to play with strangers?

No, all of our rooms are private. There is a minimum group number that you must have to reserve the room for the hour, but you will only ever experience our rooms with your group.

Will we be given hints during the game?

Yes. Staff will provide hints as needed and/or upon request. There are two levels of difficulty, one for beginners where you can receive unlimited hints, but are not eligible for our leaderboard. And one with a maximum number of hints but are eligible for the leaderboard. This way our games are fun both for beginners and advanced players!

What happens if we don’t escape in time?

Escape rooms are challenging, so many players get close, but not all not escape in time. At the end of the allotted time, the room will be unlocked and the solution explained. Please keep the solutions confidential, so you do not spoil the experience for future players.

Do I need a reservation to enjoy an escape room experience?

Yes, a reservation is necessary. Players must book online and pay in full at the time of booking.

Can I cancel or reschedule my reservation?

Unfortunately tickets are non-refundable. However, if you need to reschedule in the event of an emergency, please call at least 24 hours in advance and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Can I book the escape room for a private party/corporate event?

Yes. We are happy to accommodate single room private experiences, multiple room events, and team competitions. Private events include exclusive use of the room/rooms, and can even be held outside of regular business hours. Please contact us and we will be happy to arrange a personalized event for your group.

Can I bring extra people?

Yes, so long as you don't exceed the maximum allotted for the room, you may bring extra people and pay onsite.

What happens if I arrive late?

It is recommended that players arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the scheduled time. In order to avoid disruptions once the game has begun, we cannot permit late arrivals. There are no refunds for late arrivals, so please plan accordingly.

How long does each event last?

In addition to the allotted time to play the game itself, players should expect a 15-20 minute briefing upon arrival to go over the rules of the game, and then 60 minutes for the game itself. Players may also stay for a short time after the game for team photos.

Do I need to wear anything special?

No, players should simply wear comfortable clothing.

Is the location handicapped accessible?


Do I have to sign the Waiver and Release of Liability in order to participate?

Yes. If you do not want to sign the waiver, then you cannot participate.

Can children participate?

Participants must be at least 10 years of age. Children under the age of 10, infants and toddlers will not be allowed in the room. Children ages 10-16 must be accompanied by an adult. Anyone under the age of 18 must have the Waiver and Release of Liability form signed by their parent/legal guardian.

Are cell phones permitted in the room?

The use of electronic devices (or any outside tools) is strictly prohibited. Lockers are provided for guests to store their personal belongings and will be securely locked during gameplay.

Are food and drinks allowed in the escape room?

No, food or drinks are not allowed in the escape room. In addition, it is recommended that alcoholic beverages are not consumed prior to participating in an escape room, as players will need all available brain power. We reserve the right to refuse entry to players who appear intoxicated. Instead, plan a dinner and drinks for after as celebration for your escape!

Can I take photographs/videos?

Players are only permitted to take photographs/videos in the waiting room, not within the escape room itself. This policy ensures that the puzzles remain a mystery for future guests.

What happens if we cannot make our reservation?

Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds, but we can work with you to reschedule for another time that will work for your group. Please give us 24 hours notice to reschedule.
