  • What is The Colby Escape Room?
    The Colby Escape Room is located in the heart of historic Whitehall, Michigan in an original Masonic Temple built in 1922. Step back in time in our escape rooms that were expertly designed to give you the most thrilling and authentic experience. Your team will race against the clock (60 minutes) to "escape" the room by solving engaging puzzles and challenges that promote creative thinking, teamwork, and communication.
  • How do I book a room?
    The best way to book your adventure is by exploring the "Rooms" tab on our website. Here you will find descriptions for each of our rooms as well as available times to book. For groups of 16 or more, feel free to give us call to learn more about our group rate. For inquiry about renting our event space, visit our Groups & Events Page.
  • What if I don't see a time that fits my schedule?
    We would love to work with you and try to find a time that fits your schedule! To inquire about a special time not listed on our webiste, please call 231-981-8191 or email us at
  • Are we really going to be locked in a room?
    The short answer is no; that doesn’t sound safe or legal! You will be closed in a room, but you are free to leave the room at any time. Of course, leaving the room early disqualifies any record times.
  • How long is each game?
    Each game is 60 minutes, though we ask you to arrive 15 minutes prior to your experience for preparation and 5 minutes after to debrief and take pictures to commemorate your victory (or defeat!)
  • How many people can play in one room?
    Each room has a minimum of 2 players, as we do not allow single players. The maximum for "The Backstage Theater" and "The Final Masterpiece" is 8 players. The maximum for each room of "The Last Train" is 5 players, for a total of 10 players when booked competitively. Players 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. All bookings will be private, with one group per room.
  • What time should I arrive?
    Please give yourself some extra time by arriving about 15 minutes earlier than your start time. Games will begin exactly at your start time. We offer a five-minute grace period at the start of your experience, if some or all of your group has not arrived at your designated start time. We have free parking on the backside of the building for our customers.
  • Do I need any special skills to participate?
    No, our rooms are designed to challenge multiple skill sets so teams who have diverse problem solving skills will be most successful. While the majority of our puzzles are geared towards adults, kids can definitely contribute to solving the mysteries by assisting adults.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    All bookings are non-refundable, however, we understand that life happens. We are happy to reschedule your booking with at least 24 hours notice.
  • Do you offer group rates?
    Yes! We love to host groups and have a special group rate for groups sizes of 16 or more. Contact us and let us know what date and time you'd like to play, and number of participants you expect to have in your group! Additionally, we have an event space available to rent that's perfect for birthday parties, bachelor(ette) parties, corporate groups, etc. Give us a call for more information.
