More About The Escape Effect

Where are the escape rooms located?

Conveniently located in the heart of Orlando on International Drive. There’s a map on our Contact page.

Is the escape room open after the parks close?

Absolutely! Our last escape room each night typically starts around 9:30pm. On weekends and holidays, look for some rooms to start as late as 11pm. Please see our reservations page for a list of the most current times available.

Is there an escape room that is great for kids and families?

As a family-run small business, we err on the side of rooms that are or can be made family-friendly. Our rooms are for you and what you value. If you are claustrophobic, we’ll leave the door open for you. If you don’t like the dark, we’ll run the room with the lights on. And if the music is too loud, we’ll turn it down. If you have any questions on the age-appropriateness of our rooms, please call us at (855) 426-3372.
