We are proud to present three real life escape room games at our Hathorne, NJ location. All games feature original stories and unique puzzles. Our escape rooms are not just a theme and puzzles. In all escape rooms you will be unraveling a story as you play. The story will help you play, and in some cases you will be the one writing the story.
All escape rooms at The Other Tales are private experiences at no extra cost. Once you book a game, even if it’s for less people than the maximum number of players, nobody else will be able to book the same time slot. If you ever want to add more people to your party, call or text us at 973.963.4142. You can also pay for the extra people at the door, as long as your total is within the escape room’s maximum number of players.
This game is about adventuring in the early 1900’s. Clara Ridley and Ed Harding are the founders of the Amazing Adventure Society - the society of people who love adventure and new discoveries. Clara and Ed were among the daring adventurers chasing the legends of the world. In their great adventures they uncovered a mysterious Relic, and since then their lives weren’t the same.
Learn about the secrets Clara and Ed discovered. Enter a room that was locked for more than 100 years!

All escape rooms at The Other Tales are designed for adults and teens. Younger kids can participate together with the adults. Kids 8 years old and older can be active participants together with the family. For groups that are mostly kids, we recommend 10 years old and older. For such groups we can set up some of our escape rooms as a bit easier version. The games stay the same, but we modify some clues and props to make some of the most difficult puzzles more approachable for younger kids.
