What to Bring & How to Prepare

Doing an escape game is much like going to the movies. You'll want to be comfortable, wearing shoes you can stand in for the duration of the game. You might need to look under tables, behind cabinets, so you will be moving during the game.

You do not need to bring anything with you for the game. We do not have storage so keep your valuables in your car or at home. You can leave purses or bags inside the game room.


My family and I had a spectacular experience here and they are above and beyond in customer service and entertainment.
This place is a blast, especially for groups! I loved seeing how group members of different personalities approached the puzzles.
Such a fun way to bond with my leadership team!
Thank you all for such a thrilling experience. I love playing puzzle games with an element of adventure. This was on par with games such as The Room or Rift, only you are in the game! Our host was excited for us to be there, and professional in his presentation of the game. Keep your standards high; never let the quality of your presentation falter. This is the start of something huge for Frederick!

This is one of the best, most challenging escape rooms I've been to. It was clear that the folks running this place put a lot of thought and effort into making the rooms immersive and extremely detailed. The puzzles were also more complex than I've seen at other rooms. This was not simply a series of locks and keys, but a number of really tough, interlocking puzzles that used a number of non-obvious elements in the rooms. The staff also was extremely courteous and helpful. Overall, a great experience and one that I would repeat again. Highly recommend! This was a few notches above the typical escape room and was well worth the trip.

I went with some friends for my bachelorette party and it was AMAZING! What a fun and different thing to do. The level of detail was amazing and the owners were awesome! We did the conspiracy theory room and cracked the puzzle just in time. We've never laughed so hard, we can't wait to do more!

This was the 20th room I had played (Conspiracy) and it was one of the absolute best. The level of detail into story, design, game play is amazing. Played every room in Frederick and the others don't even come close to the experience delivered at Clue IQ. Very impressed.

A group of my friends and myself have done other escape rooms and after we did Clue IQ's conspiracy room we were hooked and dying to do their next room. We did it today and had a blast! I cannot tell enough people about how much fun we've had here!!! This is the best escape room in Frederick!

My wife and I have done nearly 50 escape rooms, and consider Excalibur one of the best at any location! We can't wait to try the others.
