Q: When are you coming to Seattle/Houston/Chicago/New York?

Q: Is this a video game?
A: No, this event is a LIVE puzzle escape game based on the Legend of Zelda series of video games. For more about Real Escape Games, click here.
Q: Is this an escape room?
A: No, this is NOT a traditional escape room (i.e. locked inside a room). It is a fully hosted, story-based escape event designed for puzzle fans and fans of the Zelda franchise. There will be multiple teams in the event space all participating at the same time, and each team will have their own table to work at when not exploring.
Q: I haven’t played all of the Zelda games. Can I still play the Real Escape Game?
A: Yes! No specific game knowledge is required in order to play.
Q: Do I need any special knowledge, skills or abilities to play?
A: No. The puzzles require no special skills or knowledge to solve. However, please be aware that all aspects of the game will be conducted in English.
Q: Do I need a full team? What if I want to come alone?
A: You are welcome to arrive with fewer than 6 people. SCRAP staff will help you form a full team with other players before the game begins.
Q: Is there a minimum age requirement?
A: There is no formal age restriction, though many venues require participants aged 13 and under to be accompanied by an adult. Watch your city’s ticket page for any venue age restrictions. Also, because our puzzles can be challenging, we recommend players to be 13 and up – but we very much welcome younger players who love solving puzzles and are up for the challenge!
Q: Do I get something if I win?
A: The prize for finishing is the priceless moment when you finally find the solution and everything falls into place – oh, and bragging rights. Major, major bragging rights. Failure to reach the end, however, is nothing to be embarrassed about. Time is short and the challenge is real.
Q: What happens if we don’t finish?
A: Do not worry if you are unable to reach the final step of the game. There will be a full solution walkthrough after time runs out so that everybody knows the final answers.
Q: Is the event wheelchair accessible?
A: While movement is required during the game, it is designed so that everyone can enjoy, including our friends in wheelchairs. However, there is a chance that a specific venue may have accessibility restrictions, so please check your city page for details. If you anticipate needing extra assistance, please contact us so that we may discuss your needs.
Q: Is cosplay allowed?
A: Yes! However, please do not bring any dangerous weapons or costume pieces that could cause injury. We recommend dressing as comfortably as possible. Make sure it is easy for you to search and move around the space.
Q: Is photography allowed?
A: You will be allowed to use your camera during the game to capture clues, BUT please do not upload any spoilers to the internet or social media or tell other people the answers. There will also be photo opportunities after the event in the post-game lounge.
Q: Can I buy Defenders of the Triforce merchandise online?
A: At this time, merchandise will only be sold in-person at the event.
Q: Can I buy tickets as a gift for someone else?
A: Yes, you can! We recommend putting their name on the ticket, but fill out the rest of the contact info with your own data (so that they don’t see the confirmation email and spoil the surprise). Print out the tickets and wrap them up nicely as a great holiday/birthday/anytime gift!
Q: Is food and drink allowed?
A: Each city’s venue rules may vary, but as a general rule please do not bring any outside food or drink to the event.
Q: Can I bring my pet?
A: Only service animals are allowed to the event.
