Escape the Bookshop extended to mid-May! Book now before it ends!

Escape the Bookshop II, the escape room experience at tiny bookshop HouseMouse Books and Vintage in Takoma Park, will wrap up its 2024 run in mid-May. Two weeks of dates have just been added to accommodate strong demand!

Escape the Bookshop II is a limited-run, 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 open for game dates through May 10. The game takes place Wednesday through Saturday at 8 PM. It is designed to be played by a group of 3 to 6 people (ages 16+) and lasts for one hour. The game is customizable in difficulty and no prior escape room experience is needed to enjoy it.

Escape the Bookshop II costs $200 per group of up to 6 players. 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 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 are Friday 4-8PM, Saturday 11-8 PM, Sunday 11-5 PM.
