Escape Rooms

An indoor adventure that makes you think outside the box

The Escape Rooms at Refreshing Mountain provide indoor entertainment for groups and are completely themed, designed, and built by the staff at Refreshing Mountain. Our first Escape Room, “Funding the Dream”, features a live actor and a unique themed experience appealing to all audiences. Room #2, “Circle T Ranch”, is thematically built around the history of Refreshing Mountain and provides one of our most challenging experiences. After guests expressed interest in an experience geared for larger groups, we added an outdoor escape experience, “Refreshing the Zoo”. Be on the look out, Room #3 is in the works!

Escape Room Patent Office

Room #1: Funding The Dream

Ever wonder how 1950’s real world inventions came about?

We invite you to enter the “Patent Office” at Refreshing Mountain to discover inventions and overcome the red tape involved in getting your patent approved and funded. It will be up to you to choose your invention, get it patented, and get funding as you interact with our patent office clerk.

Come experience the joys (and frustrations) involved in rolling out an invention before the office closes! Perfect for birthday parties, team building, family fun, a group of friends, or retreats.

Room #2: Circle T Ranch

From chaos to organized, make Refreshing Mountain what it is today!

Before Refreshing Mountain, a horse ranch called Circle T Ranch existed. Upon acquisition of the ranch, the manager of Refreshing Mountain discovered the property in shambles and through a series of events pieced the property back together. This thrilling (family friendly/not scary) escape room will take you on a journey you won’t want to miss. Can you help the manager bring order to the chaos, locate hidden clues, and discover all the veiled secrets? Parts of this escape room story line are based on actual events in Refreshing Mountain’s history and beginning days.

We turned up the heat on this one, giving you an hour but with more games to solve! Perfect for birthday parties, team building, family fun, a group of friends, or retreats.

What People Are Saying About Our Escape Rooms


What Is An Escape Room?

Escape rooms are essentially themed rooms designed to challenge you with riddles, puzzles, and problems. Escape rooms have clues that will guide you to your next clue until you solve the puzzle of the room. Facilitators are either present in the room or are watching with remote access. The role of the facilitator is to assist you in the overall game of the room giving you additional clues to help you complete each step- should you want the help!

Is This A Shared Or Private Experience?

Typically, escape rooms can be shared or private experiences. At Refreshing Mountain, all escape rooms are private rentals. Meaning it’s just you and your group; no sharing and no problems (other than the riddles we give you!).

Are You Really Locked In The Escape Room?

No. We got rid of the padlocks on this one. Our rooms are fun and interactive, and should you need to step outside for a breather, no worries, just open the door.

What If Our Group Does Not Escape In The Alloted Time?

No worries! Remember from the previous question, our door is always open 😉 BUT if you do not finish the escape room, you’ll just have to come back and try again!

Is There A Guide Or Facilitor In The Escape Room?

All rooms are guided by one of our staff members.  For Room #1, our staff member is an “actor” in the room.  For the other rooms, our staff member is monitoring your group’s progress from outside the room, and will send you clues if/when you get stuck or need some help moving forward with the storyline.

How Long Does It Take To Complete An Escape Room?

This really depends on your group and the difficulty of the room. Some groups may finish in 45 min. others right up to the hour mark or not at all. Other factors include the ages in your group and the number of people who have had previous experience in escape rooms. All these factors contribute to the overall outcome time.

How Much Time Do We Have?

You will have 1 hr to complete your escape room.

Are Your Escape Rooms Scary?

Boo! That’s the only scary you’ll get here. No, our escape rooms are not scary. In line with our mission for our property, our escape rooms are family friendly. Meaning we designed our escape rooms in such a way that they will be fun for many ages and will truly spark your creativity and challenge you!

How Many People Can Do An Escape Room?

Group max of 10. Ten is the max occupancy for a few reasons including space, and most importantly quality and interaction amongst your group members. We’ve found more than 1o participants can have a negative experience.
