2 major things differentiate us from other escape rooms.
- We are located in a magnificent 1875 Victorian bank. Our rooms are not simply decorated to suit a theme- they are authentic time capsules from bygone eras, filled with vintage artifacts and objects. You’ll get a short tour of our historic building that is sure to impress. We have beautiful public areas where you can hang out, drink a cup of coffee (on us), and plan the rest of your day or night in the Marietta area.
- Our game is a fresh variation from the usual escape game experience. Instead of trying to break out, your objective is to break in. The goal by the end of the game is to have gathered as much money as possible before getting “caught”. Time is still a factor- and you will be rewarded if you cash out before 60 minutes.
We are located 50 steps from the Northwest Lancaster County River Trail. You can use our building as a home base before or after you take a stroll along the trail. Frequent trail access points make it easy to access and customize the length of your walk/stroll/hike/bike.
We have plenty of parking behind our building that you may use for free while you visit us.
You and your group will arrive as early as 30 minutes, but at least 15 minutes before your scheduled time. Your guide will give you a short tour of our entire building, and then go over the rules of the game. You will have 60 minutes to play. You and your team will work together to discover clues around the play area. The Night Watchman will be watching you and can assist your group if you get stuck. Each escape room is different. For example, in our Vault and adjacent Office, you will try to find keys, combinations, and other interesting objects that will help you to break into the vault. The objective of the game is to accumulate as much cash or gold in the least amount of time. You’ll have to “deposit” your cash and gold with a bank teller before your 60 minutes are up. If you don’t deposit the money, you’ll be busted by The Night Watchman, and will not be able to claim victory.
Yes it is! We are located in the first nationally-chartered bank in Lancaster County. It was built in 1875, with an addition added in the 1940s where our vault is located. Inside the vault you’ll find original hardware and alarm systems. Many of the things you’ll be interacting with are originally from when the bank was in operation, such as documents, furniture and the vault itself: but don’t worry, we won’t lock you in. For those who are afraid of becoming claustrophobic, have no fear, you do not have to enter the vault to play the game (only one person needs to enter). Plus, the vault room is quite large, has an additional air supply, and has a mechanism that prevents the door from being closed. The door is quite heavy, and it takes a strong person 30 seconds to close it, with additional time to bypass the mechanism. The door has been totally refurbished and we have a very easy combination to open the door.
It costs $25 dollars per person to play. Up to 10 people can fit into a room, comfortably. You may have to share the room with other players that you do not know. If you prefer to play with just your friends, you can book the entire room by purchasing all 10 spots for $250. The games are designed for multiple players. The Vault has been played with as little as 3 people and has been defeated, but the more players you have, the more you can delegate, and hopefully collect more money.
Up to 10 people can be booked per game. Please call for any additional accommodations.
Unless you book the room privately (pay for all 10 spots), there is a possibility that other people will be playing the same game.
Fridays from 5:30pm – 9pm and Saturdays & Sunday 1pm – 9pm. Special appointments can be arranged by phone at (717) 384-5625.
You will have up to 60 minutes to complete the game. You also have the option to “cash out” at anytime.
Yes! We encourage people of all ages to come play! People under the age of 13 do require an adult to come with them, though. Ages 14+ can play by themselves and give the parents a break.
Nope! All you need if yourself and an eagerness to collect as much cash as possible! We do not have a dress code but you are more than welcome to dress for the occasion. If you are playing the Vault game, the overall vibe is 1940s.
No. The First National Bank Museum is a different attraction located in Columbia, PA. This is conveniently only 10 minute away from our location!
