FAQ

What is BEAT THE BOMB™?

BEAT THE BOMB is the ultimate test of team coordination and communication under pressure! Mixing the best elements from escape rooms, immersive theater, and 80s movie endings, three-to-five person teams wearing hazmat suits and facial protection must use intelligence, speed, and stealth to defeat high-tech “security systems” (multiplayer games) and defuse a paint bomb before it blasts them!

Where Is BEAT THE BOMB Located?

BEAT THE BOMB is located at 247 Water Street, suite #106 (first floor past elevators back right) in DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY, 11201. It is just a few blocks from the York Street (F) Subway Stop in DUMBO, and a little longer of a walk but still close to the A/C at High Street, the 2/3 at Clark Street, and the 4/5 at Borough Hall. We are planning additional locations across the US in 2018.

How much does BEAT THE BOMB cost?

$40 per person.

Please contact us to discuss access for persons with disabilities at info@beatthebomb.com.

Can I Take Pictures Or Video During The Experience?

Will I Have To Surrender My Phone Before Entering The Experience.

No, but we will require everyone to put their phone on “off” mode. See above.

Will I Have To Sign A Waiver?
