  • All bookings are automatically made private games. You will not be joined by strangers.
  • Our staff use state approved disinfectant cleaners to wipe down all touched surfaces and items from the previous game ensuring each game is a clean game.
  • We vow to stay at least 6 feet away from every guest. We have modified our check-in and intro procedures so that we maintain “social distancing”.
  • Should you be inclined to use them, sanitary gloves will be provided for you to wear during the game. These are disposed of immediately after each game.(Gloves are provided but not required.)
  • Hand sanitizing is required by each player both before and after your game. Several pumps are provided in the lobby and near the bathrooms.
  • Masks will be required to remain on during your entire stay. If you do not have a mask one will be provided to you. If you do not wear a mask you will not be able to play your game.
Choose your game, choose a time, assemble your team, escape the room.

ABOUT CLUE CHASE ESCAPE ROOMS IN NYC

Clue Chase was founded in 2015 with one goal in mind – make amazing escape rooms. In 2015 escape rooms were just beginning to open in New York City, and everyone had different ideas about what escape rooms could or should be. We wanted to be the best escape room company in NYC, and to provide a unique escape room adventure where players could solve puzzles, find clues, and search for alien artifacts across time and space..

We poured ourselves into creating something that went beyond just escaping a vaguely themed room. We wanted to create something that could immerse players in a cohesive narrative across several separate rooms/game sessions. If you’re looking for the quintessential escape room NYC experience, we can provide.

Our game masters believe that the ideal escape room experience should begin as soon you walk into our front door. You shouldn’t have to wait until you’re playing the game for the fun to start. In order to provide this experience we have created the universe of Clue Chase Labs. Clue Chase labs is an underground Time Travel facility trying to track down an incredibly powerful alien artifact, that they can then use for… entirely noble purposes.

All our games are contained within this context, and feature Easter eggs referencing the other games for repeat players to discover. Furthermore, Clue Chase is constantly updating our escape room games. We do this because our goal is to create the best escape game experience possible. 

What made a top rated escape room in 2015 is a very different from the expectations of players in 2020. As more people play escape rooms, it becomes harder to impress players who think they have seen it all – particularly with escape rooms in Manhattan, expectations are high. This is always our goal – to entertain you, confuse you, and to (hopefully) make you feel just a bit like an actual genius. We hope you’ll enjoy what we’ve crafted for you, as thousands of players have before. So what are you waiting for? Let’s go escape the room!
