Well, pretty much everyone!
Are there any age restrictions for SmartyPantz? We have tied our stories/adventures with all ages and it is equally enjoyable for all age groups. For practical reasons, since this is a group activity and we need a certain level of maturity, we recommend a minimum age to 7 years old, but there is no maximum age. We love kids and if you want to bring in your child who are younger than 7 no problem, but remember this is an adult game and therefore younger children probably will not enjoy it. There must be at least one player over 18 years of age playing in the room.
Can I play on my own? Our detailed, theatrical games are all designed for 4 – 8 players. Should a solo or couple randomly walk-in to play a game we may ask you if you are okay to play with a stranger. On the plus side, you won’t be strangers after the 45 minutes!
So how many people should play? We have tested all sorts of numbers but the ideal is a group of 4 – 8 players. For this reason we are quite strict about these team sizes, as we want to ensure that each and every SmartyPantz experience is excellent.
Can you handle larger groups? Of course! Our “Dreamscape” adventure can accommodate up to 16 players at a time. For corporate groups please check our website “How It Works” or call your local SmartyPantz directly.
Can a wheelchair-bound or disabled person play a SmartyPantz adventure escape room? Absolutely. There is no reason why players with a handicap should not also enjoy the experience as well. However, please be aware that due to safety and practicality reasons we only allow one person in a wheelchair or disabled to take part in each group as they will need the assistance from able-bodies players.
Vancouver – All our adventure escape rooms are located on the 2nd floor and are only accessible via a steep stairs making access difficult, but not impossible for wheelchairs.
Edmonton – We have one room on the ground floor (Thirst for Murder) that is accessible, but all our other rooms are on the 2nd floor. Again there is a steep staircase leading to the 2nd floor that does make wheelchair access problematic.
Calgary – All our escape rooms are located on the ground floor and are therefore accessible to player[s] who are wheelchair bound.
