Overview
More
SmartyPantz is a premier escape & virtual reality room provider. You and a group of friends, co-workers or family members are led into a themed room, provided a backstory by our hosts who are in costume and character. You then have 45 minutes to solve a series of puzzles and riddles related to the theme and story to 'escape the room', but don't worry we do not lock you in. It's a blast!! Our themed rooms have been scripted, designed & built by some of theatrical talent and the puzzles are neatly integrated into the story. The difficulty of the puzzle rooms varies from moderate to diabolical.

This was our 7th escape room and it was definitely more of an experience than any other. Our Game Master, Trevor, was awesome and it added so much to the story. He introduced us to the story and objective in character and stayed that way...More

Did the dream room and it was very good. Love how random it is and how it ends up that even the smartest people get stumped and the weirdest thinking often leads to a solution. Lots of fun!
