In order to reserve a room at Fox in a Box - Chicago, you will need to pay at the time of making the booking in order to confirm the reservation.
In order to play our escape rooms, you must make a reservation in advance (we do not accept walk ins). Additionally, payment is required when you make the booking in order to confirm the reservation. This is a live event akin to going to a concert. Would you expect to get reserved seats to a live performance, but not need to pay for them unless you show up?
If you are unsure how many people will be in your group, you can book for the minimum of 3 to reserve the room and then show up with up to 3 (2 in the case fo Zodiac) additional players. You can pay for those additional players once you arrive.
