What is Happening With Our Escape Rooms?

We are retiring the Escape Room portion of our Experience on 10/14/2018! We have had a wonderful experience servicing over 9,500 players over the last 2 years, but now is the time for us to grow and change. Giving our players and future players new thrills and adventure!

We are excited to unveil our new format to everyone in the Tampa Bay area! The first local Scavenger Hunt tailor made for your city, we are pleased to offer this exploration to our friends and neighbors!

Remember, the “Escaping” isn’t over at Mouse Trap Escape Experience! You can try your hand and problem solving skills at the St. Pete location! Visit online, www.mousetrapescapestpete.com or call 727.592.8727

We are looking forward to hosting you on our Scavenger Hunts with Mouse Trap Experience, Ybor!

Why a Scavenger Hunt?

Simply put, because they are FUN, and they build on your player’s skills and contributions. Each member of your team will be a contributor and you will have memories to last a lifetime of you all dashing towards the finish!

What to Expect

The evening prior to your scheduled time, your team leader (typically the person booking the event) will receive a text with a riddle for your location starting point—it is up to you to figure out where you will be meeting our Facilitators by solving the riddle!

Our trained and friendly Facilitators will then meet you at your designated start location. We review the rules with your team and answer any questions that you may have. We send you off with a full bottle of water for your 2 hour adventure in the Ybor neighborhood!

You are never alone, we have our team placed at certain points throughout the hunt that you can easily identify if you have questions, as well as your “lifeline” to text us for hints. But use them wisely, you only get 3 hints!

3 Ways to Play!

At Mouse Trap Experience we offer 3 ways to play! You pick what is best for your group:

  • Book a Saturday!  You will have 3 times that you can book a time, 1pm, 3pm or 5pm. You will be starting with other teams looking for the same adventure that your team is!  All finishers receive a finisher’s medal to prove your skills!
  • Book a Corporate or Private Event!  Private team building scavenger hunt events are by appointment only and can be scheduled at any time that would suit your team’s needs.  Your team is broken up into smaller groups of 6 and you will provide us with their team names, we provide team shirts.
  • Challenge Competitions  Now here is the time to strut your problem solving skills!  Once a month we will host a competitive edition of our hunts. 15-20 groups of 6 will enter their teams to compete for prizes, giveaways and finisher medals.

Every quarter we host a quarterly event—just like the monthly competitions, only with more at stake-bigger prizes and a chance to be entered into our yearly city wide scavenger hunt with a $2500 Grand Prize! 

Who Can Play?

That’s the best part! Anyone can play!  There are no age restrictions for this activity, however if you are booking an experience for anyone under 18 you will need to have an adult with each group participating.

Booking a hunt is great for:

  • Corporate Events
  • Club Events
  • Birthday Parties
  • Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties
  • Family Outings

What is a Group Size?

Teams are no more than 6 players, no exceptions. While you can compete with less than 6 we limit the maximum amount of players at 6. It is in the best interest of the team, and the hunt to have a controlled group amount.

Do We Have a Physical Location?

No, we do not. Your adventures begin at various locations in the Ybor District.

Competition Challenges

We are excited to offer these fun an interactive events that allow you and your team to get in on the winnings!  Below is the schedule for the monthly competitive events:
