Book an Escape Room at HouseMouse, Takoma Park’s Tiny Used Bookshop

Come solve a crime that took place in Takoma Park 130 years ago!

HouseMouse Books and Vintage is excited to announce the debut of Escape the Bookshop II, our new limited-run escape room experience. Escape the Bookshop II is a unique group puzzle game that is based on a real crime that took place in Takoma Park around 130 years ago. It is designed and created by HouseMouse to be played in our atmospheric little bookshop. This is not your typical corporate escape room and makes for a memorable evening out with friends or family!

Bookings are now open for game dates in January through April 2024. The game generally takes place Wednesday through Saturday at 8 PM but special arrangements can be made upon request. It is designed to be played by a group of 3 to 6 people (ages 16+) and lasts for one hour. No prior escape room experience is needed to enjoy the game.

Escape the Bookshop II costs $200 per group of up to 6 players, and makes a great holiday gift! To book the game, email [email protected] or book on our Google Appointments Calendar. Gift certificates for the experience are also available.

HouseMouse is a tiny used bookshop located on the second floor at 7006 Carroll Ave, above Olive Lounge in Takoma Park, MD. In addition to the escape experience, it offers curated and sustainably sourced used books and vintage items at affordable prices. Store hours: Friday 4-8PM, Saturday 11-8 PM, Sunday 11-5 PM.
