About Escape Rooms:

Escape Room in Lexington

What is an Escape Room?

Escape Rooms are games that combine mental agility, problem-solving, teamwork to result in FUN as you try to break out of a room using only your wits! You and the others in your room will have one hour

to search for clues and solve puzzles to lead you to the solution that will get you OUT!

Will my friends/spouse/date/child and I play alone?

The short answer is: probably not. Each room is set up for between 5-8 players, although you may play with fewer. Of course, you may bring a whole group and play together, however, if others book the same room, you may be playing

with new friends. 

Who Can Play?

The only room that may actually scare a child would be The Nightmare, as it is small and dark. Templar Treasure is the most family friendly. Moriarity's is appropriate for all ages, but may be too difficult for children under teenage to complete without adult help. On the other hand, you may be surprised how a very young mind can find an answer to a puzzle you are struggling with! In general, our games are appropriate for age 8 and up (although, see above about kids needing help. And remember, we adjust our clues to make them "doable" by younger sleuths when you book a Kid Sherlock's birthday party! Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult, who is also playing (except, of course in Kid Sherlock's during parties).


You will make an appointment for a specific time. In order to be fair to other guests, we STRONGLY recommend you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your start time. Players will NOT be admitted once the room has started.

When Can I Play?

Our games are scheduled Friday-Sundays, but you may always call 859-552-0508 and book a special time on Monday-Thursday, subject to availability. 


Each room at Sherlock's Puzzling Place is $25/person. We do NOT offer refunds, however games may be rescheduled with 24 hours notice. In order to be fair to other players, no refunds or rescheduling is offered for no-shows or late players. Contact us about group discounts.

Frequently Asked Questions:

                                      So just what is an escape room, anyway???

                        Escape rooms are a new live-action game, where players are                                "locked" in a room and cooperate to use their wits, creativity,                            and mental agility to solve puzzles, find clues and get out!                         You may go alone, but most people bring at least one friend.                            Rooms that are not "filled" (usually 5-8 people) may be matched                       with other players who have booked the same time slot. You will                        encounter props, special effects, riddles, and puzzles--some mental,                  some physical, in order to get out of the room. You DO NOT need                      physical STRENGTH, just mental power!  Remember,the rooms are challenging,           and most people DO NOT escape!  Sherlock's Puzzling Place escape room breakout game in lexington escape room in Lexington
