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!

Room #1: Funding The Dream

Room #1: 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

Room #2: 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.

Outdoor Experience: Refreshing the Zoo

Outdoor Escape: Great Scott! The animals have escaped!

Refreshing the Zoo- Do you have the necessary Koalifications to rescue our escaped animals and get them safely to their new habitats? We invite you to explore the zoo at Refreshing Mountain where you will go through various team obstacles to rescue our (imaginary) animals. Once your team has rescued them, you will be tasked with safely relocating them into their new habitats. Will your team be able to find, rescue, and get our animals into their new habitats before time runs out?

Great for larger groups we give you two hours for this one, and you’ll need it! Perfect for birthday parties, team building, family fun, a group of friends, or retreats.

Our team had a fantastic time on November 3. It was a perfect fall day and we were able to participate in both indoor and outdoor activities. The escape rooms were challenging and quite fun. Their employees are the absolute best and are so enthusiastic and helpful. I highly recommend Refreshing Mountain to everyone!

Amazing place to visit! High ropes corses and zip lines are top notch. Both escape rooms I have done here are amazing…probably the best I’ve done! The staff is really friendly, especially the owner’s son! Also the lodging is very nice…I must say the cabins are amazing! The only thing that needs improvement is the quality of the camp food:/ some times it’s pretty rough. But the 316 cafe has AMAZING shakes! Must get one while you’re there!

We had a wonderful experience at refreshing mountains. Elizabeth and Joel were our tour guides for the zip line and obstacle course. They both were amazing. I was terrified to go on the zip line but Joel was so patient and helped me to conquer my fear. The escape room was also great. We had done various escapes rooms, this is one of the best. Overall we had a great experience.

Frequently Asked Questions About our Escape Rooms

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!

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!).

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.

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!

Yes. Each escape room has a facilitator that will be engaging with you through out the experience. This person is someone you can inquire with about challenges and look to for assistance if you desire.

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.

You will have 1 hr to complete your escape room.

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!

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.

For larger groups, we design your schedule in a way that will allow everyone to enjoy the escape room experience.

Yes. Our escape rooms can book up fast, be sure to book that escape room if you see availability and know you want to do it.
