General

Missions are Beat The Bomb’s signature 1-hour games where 4-6 players put on hazmat suits and progress through hi-tech game rooms, including a Laser Maze, to disarm a Paint Bomb (Mission 01) or Foam Bomb (Mission 02) or GET BLASTED! Each Bomb Mission is 5 different games. We recommend the Paint Bomb Mission for first-time teams and the Foam Bomb Mission for returning players. Battle Mode is available for 2 teams to compete head-to-head. For pricing see our Location Pages.

The Game Bay Experience is a casual 3-wall game lounge with a high-top table, for groups of up to 10 people who want to hang out and play from an arcade menu of 3-minute mini-games, some cooperative, and others competitive or free-for-all. Play while enjoying food and drinks from The Bomb Bar while taking game breaks when you want! Note: does not include hazmat suits, laser maze, or Paint or Foam ending. For pricing see our Location Pages.

Yes, but also not at all. Yes in the sense that you advance from room to room, but other than that, it’s very different. In escape rooms the rooms are themed, very puzzle intensive (and therefore can be “lonely” despite being in there as a group), and nothing happens if you lose. BEAT THE BOMB is highly immersive and interactive requiring ALL players to work together to win. If you lose, you get blasted with Paint or Foam!

The Game Bay, Mission, and VIP Mission last just over 60 minutes. The Super VIP lasts just over 1hr 30min. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your booking confirmation time.

Please don’t be late! If your Team arrives more than 5 minutes late for your entry time, we reserve the right to cancel your booking entirely, or reschedule you later that day or another day! Unfortunately we cannot allow late arrivals to postpone the scheduling of other participants or cause other participants to have a delayed experience.

No! BEAT THE BOMB gives all players a waterproof hazmat suit and booties to protect their clothing and shoes from our Paint and Foam bombs, plus a helmet and face shield! We do not have problems with players getting paint or foam on clothing. Given that Beat The Bomb’s games involve light physical activity, we recommend clothing and shoes you can move around in comfortably!

No! We have a Paint Bomb and a Foam Bomb - and neither hurt whether you are 8 y/o or an adult! The Paint Bomb is NOT paintball. NO paintballs or paintball guns are used in the mechanics of our Bombs. The Paint Bomb feels like a big splash of paint. The Foam Bomb is like a frothy car wash. Beat The Bomb takes safety seriously. The Bomb Blasts are human-triggered (not automatic) and masks are enforced in all Bomb Rooms.

Yes! Everyone loves a good selfie! Yes you can bring your phones in with you, and take all the photos and videos that you want! In fact, we provide you with fanny packs for THAT VERY PURPOSE. We'll also email you free photos and videos from the Bomb Room after your expeirence. Remember to post on social media tagging @BeatTheBomb using #HaveABlast.

Photosensitive seizure warning: Please consult your doctor. A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games. Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these “photosensitive epileptic seizures” while playing a game such as BEAT THE BOMB. These seizures may have a variety of symptoms, including lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness. Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling down or striking nearby objects. Immediately stop playing BEAT THE BOMB and consult a doctor if you experience any of these symptoms. Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above symptoms. Children and teenagers are more likely than adults to experience these seizures. The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by avoiding playing BEAT THE BOMB while you are drowsy or fatigued. Moreover, if you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a doctor before playing.

Pregnancy warning:

Please consult your doctor. This is entirely your discretion.

We encourage you to play, and then sit out any games or elements of games you don’t feel comfortable doing, but please consult your doctor to discuss any concerns prior to playing BEAT THE BOMB. Here is information you will want to know:

The ground in places can be wet, and we would recommend being extra careful. The bomb room is elevated 1 inch and is often dripping with paint from a recent blast! Additionally, all of our rooms and hallways are dark. To avoid tripping or slipping you’ll need to be extra careful.

The laser room is quite active, and encourages you to move quickly, crawl, and bend your way back and forth across a laser maze in a 10′ x 20′ room. However, you can decide which laser patterns you want to attempt, as well as play the ‘coach’ on the sidelines if you’d like to sit this one out (if so, start practicing your ‘watch that Laser!’)

The Bomb itself may give you pause. The Paint Bomb feels like a wave of paint hitting you, and the Foam Bomb feels like a frothy car wash, but neither one hurts. It is NOT paintball. We’d be happy to show you a demonstration before you begin. And if you want to sit it out, you can watch your Team’s live stream on the big screen in the lobby!
