A Breach activation signature has been detected, and a Kaiju attack is imminent. Take command from inside the Shatterdome mission control center and join the heroic Jaeger fleet in battle to save the world from extinction!

This is a live-action entertainment game. However, unlike any of our other escape games, you are not locked into a room. It’s a scenario that you have to over come by finding clues and solving puzzles with teammates.

In Pacific Rim: Shatterdome Defenders, you and your team will enter an immersive, cinematic world straight out of Hollywood and become the heroes of the story. You will need to search the room and use the gadgets inside to complete missions before time runs out. The combination of sights, sounds, and technology will get your heart pumping and create an unforgettable experience!

***NO prior knowledge needed. Beginners are welcome!***

Frequently Asked Questions

No, but it will feel like one! This is a live entertainment experience in which you will work with other players to save the world by solving puzzles and interacting with the room.

The doors will open 10 minutes before the game. We ask that you please arrive at least 5 minutes prior to your time slot.
*Please be aware that players who arrive long after the game starts may not be allowed entry to ensure a quality game experience for the others.*

You are welcome to book with fewer than ten players. If you would like the game to be exclusive to your group, please either buy all ten tickets in the time slot or use the “private game” option when booking. Please note if you did not buy all the tickets or select “private game,” there may be other folks joining you on this mission.

If you’re not into being locked in a room with people you’ve never met, you can purchase all 10 tickets for your desired time slot. If there are fewer than ten tickets available, someone has already bought one or more tickets for that game. In that case, try a different time!

You will not be allowed to take photo during the game.  We are trying to keep the room as spoiler-free as possible!

We ask that you refrain from posting any solutions anywhere online so that you do not spoil the game for other players.

Cosplay is welcomed! However, make sure your costume allows you to move freely during the game.

You don’t need any movie knowledge to play and enjoy this game.

About 90 minutes total, including introduction and solution walkthrough.

Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult, and children under the age of 18 must have a children’s waiver filled out. Our puzzles can be challenging, so we generally recommend players be age 13 and up. We do, however, welcome younger players who love solving puzzles and are up for the challenge!

No worries! We will still allow you to leave after the solution walkthrough.

You get the honor of bragging rights! You escaped!

It is possible, but there may be parts where the room may be a bit too small to enter or obstacles are in the way. Please let us know prior to your game so that we can accommodate as best as possible.

Unfortunately we do not allow food or drinks inside the room.

All ticket sales are final. In the rare case of a game being canceled for some extreme circumstance, you will be contacted by staff for a reschedule or a refund.
