You have questions, we have answersFAQs

Contact Us
  • Do I need a reservation?

    Yes and no. Prior reservations online or over the phone are recommended to ensure you get the room and time you wish to play. You can always stop by in person to see if there are any available playing spots; however, you are not guaranteed an open spot for your group. All games will come offline 1-hour prior to game start, whether the game is booked or not. Give us call if you had a game time in mind and were not able to book online in time.

  • When should my group arrive?

    Everyone in your party MUST arrive 15 minutes prior to the reservation start time. This time frame is to complete check-in, fill out waivers and use the restroom, if necessary, prior to starting the game. As always, account for traffic and parking availability. If your group anticipates arriving later than 15 minutes prior to start time, please give us a call.

  • How do I reschedule my reservation?

    In order to re-schedule a reservation, you MUST give us a 24-hour notice prior to your original game start time. Only one reservation change can happen for a booking, so make sure the re-scheduled game time works for everyone in your party! Re-scheduling also excludes a refund. To receive a refund, a 48-hour notice must be given from the original booking time.

  • How much time is given to complete the game?

    Nightfall: Creature at Camp Deadwood has a 60-minute time limit in addition to the time allotted for rules and story briefing prior to the start of your experience. Be sure to read the description of the game you are playing and, of course, any questions can be answered over the phone or via email at
