"We did the Zombie room for my birthday weekend, and it was a blast!! Dr. Oxy and staff were brilliant. I highly recommend everyone do this at least once in their life." -Annalisa Boje

"Being trapped in a room with a zombie is excellent. The tension escalates at a great pace, and the puzzles are just hard enough to take the whole hour. Would definitely go again." -Bryce Magorian

#1. DON’T JUST STAND THERE! There are clues scattered throughout the room. Move, touch, pull, turn, twist and open as many things as you can to find clues.

#2. SHARE YOUR FINDINGS. The only way to solve the puzzles and escape is to put all of the clues together. A safe may take two or three clues to open. Gather your clues in one spot and work as a collaborative unit with the other adventurers to come up with solutions.

#3. STAY AWAY FROM THE ZOMBIE. The Zombie is hungry and he wants to eat you. It is chained to a wall, but don’t get near it. If the Zombie touches you, you will have to sit and no longer will be permitted to search for clues, but you can still participate verbally.


What happens if the Zombie touches me?

Don't get touched by the crawling Zombie! If you get touched by the crawling zombie, you will be required to stay in a designated place and no longer will be permitted to search for clues, but you can still participate verbally. The Zombie is chained to a wall and may not roam freely, but the chain is released another foot every five minutes so you better be quick at putting together the clues, solving the riddles and finding the key that will set you free, otherwise you will be Zombie bait.


Will I really get eaten if I don't escape?

Cannibalism has been outlawed since 1804, so the Zombie is not legally permitted to eat you.


How old do you have to be?

Participants under the age of 15 will NOT be admitted.  Minors will need to bring a waiver signed by their parent or guardian.


What if I am pregnant?

We do not recommend this show for women who are pregnant.


What if I am epileptic?

There are some flashing lights used in the show, but they can be deactivated by request. There is a buzzer (similar to a school bell) that rings every 5 minutes and other loud noises that occur over the course of the adrenaline-packed, hour-long show.


Can I schedule a private show for just our group?

To reserve an entire session for your group, you need to purchase all 10 tickets at once. If you would like to schedule outside our regular hours, check out our Team Builders page!


Are you hiring?

We are always looking for hungry zombies and perky scientists! If you are interested in acting for us, please submit your resume, headshot, and a brief statement of interest to info@portlandescaperooms.com .


What should I wear?

Clothes! Anything is fine, but we strongly advise against wearing high-heeled shoes.
