Founded in 2015, Philadelphia Room Escape provides innovative Escape Room experiences for groups of all ages!


For those who aren't familiar, an Escape Room is a space that has been decorated, designed, and decked out with a theme and puzzles that you and a group of friends have an hour to solve. Traditionally, the end-goal of an Escape Room is to Escape the Room by solving puzzles and unlocking the front door. Our rooms have unique missions and challenges that you and your team will be tasked with. Do you have what it takes to conquer them and earn a spot on our "Wall of Champions?" For more information and details please see our "Frequently Asked Questions" section below.


What is Philadelphia Room Escape?

We are an innovative Escape Room experience here in downtown Philadelphia located on the 2nd floor at 1520 Sansom Street. Our themed rooms are designed with challenges that will require guests to use equal parts creativity, brainpower, and teamwork to complete them, creating live experiences you'd normally only be able to get in a movie. Challengers will have one hour to beat the room using the resources given to them and try to earn a spot on our "Wall of Champions". Do you think you have what it takes?

How Much Does it Cost?

Prices for all individual guests to either of our Escape Rooms is $26.95/person and all reservations must be made through the Reservations page on this site. Please note that once a reservation is made, no refunds can be issued for any reason. You may change the date and time of your reservation if you contact us at least 3 days before your scheduled time. All major credit cards are accepted.

What Do I Need To Know Before Arrival?

Philadelphia Room Escape will test your mental capabilities and ability to communicate effectively as a team. Doing so under the influence of alcohol or any other substance is strongly discouraged. Save it for the celebrations after you hopefully succeed! 

All guests MUST arrive 15 minutes prior to their reservation. If you are late you risk being not able to participate as there is necessary prep and introduction time as well as check-in.

All you need to do is bring yourself! We have lockers where you may store bags, purses, phones, etc. in a secure location and they will be waiting for you once you finish. You are permitted to bring your phone into the room only if it is either silenced or on airplane mode. You will also need to sign a waiver before we can let you enter a room.

While there isn't necessarily a restriction, our escape rooms are recommended for players above the  age of 12. Those under that age can still contribute, however they may not be able to comprehend the specific details and puzzles of the room.   

All guests will be required to sign a waiver before entering a room, but guests under 13 years of age will also need a parent or legal guardian present with them in the rooms.

Is There An Age Limit?                

Currently we only offer the experiences of our Escape Rooms, but downtown Philadelphia and most notably Sansom Street where we are located has anything you can imagine as far as food, drink, and refreshments go. Ask any of our staff for recommendations or their personal favorites!

Do you Offer Food and Drinks?

Philadelphia Room Escape is open by reservations only 7 days a week. Weekdays from 12PM until 10PM. Weekends from 10AM until 10PM.

If you are in the area you are welcome to walk in and stop by during these hours however we cannot guarantee there will be someone there to speak with.

What Are Your Hours?

Philadelphia Room Escape is located at 1520 Sansom Street 2nd Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19102. We are up the stairs directly above the Sherman Brother's Shoe Store. Entrance is right next to the door to Sherman Brothers. We offer parking vouchers at a discounted price that you can use at the parking facility at 15th and Sansom.

Where Are You Located?

Yes! Escape Rooms make perfect gifts, and you can purchase a gift certificate to any room by clicking the 'Gift an Experience' button on our main page. You don't need to book an actual time either, just purchase the tickets and we'll send you either you or your recipient an email with a code that can be used at checkout, leaving it up to them to book the perfect time. You can also send a dollar amount and let them decide when and on what rooms to use the gift on. Email us at if you have any questions about gifting!

Do You Offer Gift Certificates?

Our rooms were designed with one goal in mind: to provide truly innovative experiences to anyone curious enough to search for them. Our rooms do not have any "scare-factor" to them, and they're not designed to be scary, so there's no need to worry about that. 

As you will all be in a room for an hour with several people, please make sure you do not endanger one another in your rush to solve these rooms. Safety is our number one concern, and we have done everything we can to ensure your safety.

Are There Any Restrictions?
