No, you are not. At any time during the game, you can go out the way you came in, so safety is never an issue. But the goal of the game is to escape, so the exit door is indeed locked. Every game is monitored on closed circuit video with two-way audio. You can always ask The Crooked Key gamemaster for assistance. If you are still skeptical, come in and ask for a tour, or play our outdoor game which is 100% non-confined.
