Frequently asked questions

Is it scary? Am I really locked in a room?

No. We have not designed any of our rooms with horror elements or anything intended to frighten a player. You are never locked in a room or confined in a space against your will.

What if I have more or less people than I am booking for?

That's fine! We only charge for whoever is actually going into an escape room. If your headcount changes between the time of booking and the day of, that is no problem. We do appreciate if you notify us of the change in advance if possible.

I am new to escape rooms or this is my first time to Twisted Limits. Which room should I book?

We recommend "Behind the Curtain" as the best starting point.

Is there an age requirement?

We recommend ages 10-12 and up, but have had as young as 7 playing in the rooms. The younger the players, the more discretionary it is. A whole group of preteens would fare much better with at least one adult or older player with them.

Can I host a birthday party here? What about food/drink?

Absolutely. We have a 1,000 square foot party room that can be reserved for your group. You are welcome to bring in any manner of food or drink that you prefer.

How much does it cost?

Our rooms are all priced at $30-$40 per player, depending on the scenario. All of our pricing works this way, but you are welcome to contact us for a large outing of 20+ participants that we may be able to negotiate a flat rate for.

Will I be playing with people I don't know?

No. All of our bookings are private. Once you make a reservation, the whole time slot is blocked out.

Do I have to pay online?

No, although some rooms may require a deposit in the amount of a single player's admission. Otherwise, you can select "Pay on Arrival" at checkout and use card or cash on-site the day of your booking. We can even split it up individually among participants.

Where are you located?

Our address is at 3735 W. Elm Street (Rt. 120), McHenry IL 60050. We are located in the Century 21 plaza set farther back from the road. Sherwin-Williams and Sparrow's Nest are directly across the street.
