The cost of escape rooms in NYC range between $35-$50 per person and depends on whether it’s a private or public room, the size of the group, and the cost of creating and maintaining the room. On top of this, many other factors contribute to the price of escape rooms in New York City which will be explained below.  Our escape rooms and VR escape games range from $15 to $50 per person.

NYC Escape Room Price Factors Explained:

Private Rooms Vs. Public Rooms:

Private rooms are generally more expensive than public rooms because the occupancy of a private room might not be filled. Hypothetically, if two people book a private escape room, then the other 6 spots can’t be filled. This increases a company’s opportunity cost and therefore raises the prices of private escape rooms. Many private escape room experiences give special pricing depending on group size and seasonality. 

Quality of the Room:

Escape rooms come in various sizes, complexity, and immersion. The size of the room can increase the price of an escape room. Our largest escape room, Mission: Galaxy Rescue can hold up to 16 players at a time and gives players the option to fight against one another or play together. This is the largest escape room in NYC and costs around $45 per person. The complexity or difficulty of an escape room also is a price factor for escape rooms. It takes a lot of time and thought to think of interconnected puzzles and problems that are hard but solvable for anybody walking into a room. It takes a great deal of time and money to come up with the objectives of an escape room, therefore the price per ticket can be higher. Immersion is another important price factor because creating special effects and building the room can get very pricy, very quickly. If the escape room has an extreme level of immersion, this will most likely be reflected in the price.

Room Design & Creation:

Designing, creating, and maintaining an escape room can take a lot of time, money, and thought. To create fun, immersive escape experiences for users, escape room complexes have to hire professionals to help with every aspect of the room from the vision, design, build, and upkeep. Escape rooms take a great deal of thought and time to make an experience that is both realistic and immersive as well as solvable and challenging.
