Southern Maryland's Original Escape Room

Escape from the Past is following CDC guidelines. Everyone who enters the building is required to wear a mask. We are doing extra cleaning in our lobby and in our rooms, to include touch surfaces and puzzle items. We have added extra time between our scheduled rooms so that no separate groups will be in our lobby at the same time. Finally we have made all of our rooms private so that you will never be grouped with other people.

You will be “locked” inside a room with a group of people. You must uncover the clues, piece together all types of puzzles, strategize with your team to complete you mission and get out of the room in 60 minutes.

You can always walk out of each room, we want everyone to be and feel safe. The most fun way, though, is to pretend you’re really locked in and solve the puzzles to make your way back out!

We ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes before you are scheduled to start. This give you time to sign the waiver, use the restroom and listen to the brief before beginning your adventure!

It is great time for all people. Family night, date night, day out with friends, pre-party time, corporate team building...escaping is always fun! All children 13 and younger must be accompanied by at least one adult in the room at all times. Children under 10 can participate only in private games. The themes are not inappropriate for any audience, however, the puzzles are challenging.

Each room has a completely different theme. None of them are scary. The Moll Dyer room has been called a little spooky, but certainly not scary.

YES! As long as you have at least 4 people to play and book ahead, we can usually accommodate whatever time you are looking for outside of business hours. Just send us an email at and someone from our team will get back to you. You can also email us if you would like to set up something for team building.
