    What to Expect
    Located at 405 Red River Street in downtown Austin, please check in 15-minutes prior to your game start time. Our Prison Break Escape Room is an exciting, immersive game that takes you back in time. The year is 1955. You’ve been wrongfully accused of a crime, and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Your new “home” is a cell that once belonged to an inmate who disappeared without a trace or did he? Some claim he escaped. Others swear he was murdered by the infamously cruel warden. But no one actually knows. Can you escape before you suffer the same fate?

    Here’s how it works: You and your team are locked in a room and have one hour to complete a mission and escape. Escaping will require teamwork, quick thinking, determination and a sense of urgency. From the moment you step into your game, you'll be totally immersed in our world.

    Each game is designed for 60-minutes of intense fun! Plan to spend 15-minutes prior to each game preparing for your mission, and 15-minutes after each game to debrief and take photos.  Perfect for everyone from families to thrill seekers to corporate groups, our intensely energetic games and enthusiastic customer service will turn your hour of gameplay into a lifelong memory.

    Paid parking is available above our location in the Austin Convention Center parking garage, with an entrance off of 5th street. (405 Red River Street Austin, TX 78701)

    We did a double date to the prison break and loved it! It was my first escape room but I’ll go back again for sure. Remedy was great and I felt confident going into my first room. 10 out of 10.

    This was our second trip as part of a company team building event. We enjoyed the Prison Break. Definitely recommend having more than 6 people to solve the game. Matt was a good guide and helped us with clues.

    Great teen and family activity. This was one of our favorite things we did in Austin. The prison break one was hard and you should not do this room if it is your first time but it was amazing. The staff was also great.

    I had a great time in the Prison Break room. Our guide, Anessa, was very friendly and the actual game was fun. Some of the puzzles were very difficult, but that added to the experience since we all had to work together to solve them.

    I went here with my fiancé and our friends last night and we had an awesome time! I haven’t tried other escape rooms here, but the Prison Break room was a really challenging, yet fun experience!
