The Escape Shack is a 15-minute escape game in which participants find clues and solve puzzles in order to unlock the door of the shack to escape.

The Escape Shack close 30 minutes before the last arrival time tickets. You may arrive 30 minutes early if you want to do escape shacks before your Field of Screams, Kansas event.

What if I miss my arrival time?
Please make every issue to arrive on time. If you miss your arrival time and arrive late on the same night that your ticket was issued, we will do our very best to get you into the queue lines at the next possible time. Those who arrive on time will always get priority entry and a specific time is not guaranteed once you have missed your time. This policy only applies to arrivals on the same date of your ticket. Once your ticket has expired, you will not be able to reschedule. Timed ticketing restricts attendance and once a date passes, we are not able to sell the lost inventory again. Much the same as a concert, theater performace, or sporting event, you will not receive a refund if you do not attend. Please choose your tickets wisely.
