$60–160 per game

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND: Broadway legend Bethel Berman has swooped in for a dazzling one-night-only concert at the Phipps. But Ms. Berman's signature diamonds are nowhere to be found! Curtain is in one hour, and Bethel refuses to perform without them. Are they merely misplaced, or is there something more sinister afoot? You and your intrepid team of backstage crew members must crack the case and save the show!

Escape Game FAQs

Nope! The goal is not to escape — instead, you’re solving a mystery! The game will take place on the Black Box stage.


The Phipps recommends ages 14+ (due to puzzle challenges, not content). Children under 14 are welcome with their families.


There are no physical challenges, but you should be prepared to move around as you search for clues.


Absolutely! If you want to have a private event, such as a birthday party or corporate event, just email info@thephipps.org or call 715.386.2305, and the Phipps will work with you to schedule your experience.


The Phipps recommends 4–8 players, but your group can be as large as you'd like. If your group is larger than 8, contact the Phipps at 715.386.2305. The game can be played with as few as 2 people.


No! All bookings are private, so you don’t need to worry about making new friends.


Yes, the Phipps requires advance bookings (at least the day before), to ensure there is staff available.


There are no refunds for this event. However, if you contact the box office a minimum of 48 hours prior to your game, you may move your reservation to a time that better suits you.


Before the game, you’ll get some brief instructions and an introduction — less than 15 minutes. Then you will have 75 minutes to solve the mystery. You’ll also have a little time afterwards if you want to ask any questions.


No! Everything needed to play the game is provided. Just bring your friends and your puzzle-solving skills.
