This was the third room we have done at Escape Quest. Love spending time together as a family and this provides a great opportunity to get away from electronics and spend quality time together! These rooms are very well planned out with such creativity and fun! The staff are very friendly! Nothing like having staff on the other side of the door silently cheering you on when you’re down to the wire! 😊 if you thinking about even trying something like this, I highly recommend Escape Quest!

Lots of fun!

UPDATE: I have since been in contact with one of the owners of Escape Quest. They apologized for our experience and provided an explanation to why we had such a long wait for our hints, as well as explained that they seem to have resolved the issue. They also offered a free pass for each of my teammates for us to return at a later date. I have changed my rating from three to five stars as we thoroughly enjoyed our experience other than the issue with the hint button. I would strongly recommend Escape Quest as they offer a great experience to their clients and have great customer service. My team will definitely be back to try another room and are very thankful for the resolution to the problem we encountered.

I did the Patient 709 room with a few of my friends a couple of days ago and overall it was a great setup. A few of the puzzles were a little challenging at times but not too difficult for a bunch of teenagers. The experience was very immersive and went very well until we needed a hint...we ended up wasting about 15 minutes of our time in total waiting for a staff member to come give us our hint during two occasions. The first time we clicked the button for a hint when we had 25 minutes remaining...surprised that the game master didn't come; we kept returning and clicking the button every couple of minutes. Still, no response. Finally, when we had 15 minutes remaining the game master decided to give us our hint. It wasn't a big deal at first .. I get it, the game master may have been busy. But then we needed another hint five minutes later and ended up waiting an additional five minutes for the game master to give us our hint. To top it off, we were not even given the time we lost due to poor response times at the end. The game master told us that we could have escaped the room in no more than five or ten minutes when he kicked us out on the hour. If he had just given us the time we had lost waiting for him to give us the hint we could've escaped and the night would've been much more enjoyable for us.

From my experience the room was absolutely amazing and the staff were friendly and great to talk to, however the wait made the experience very frustrating.

Every Visit is a Blast!
Oct 2020
I first did a couple of escape rooms (Patient 709 and Lost Colony of Atlantis) at Escape Quest back in February of 2019. This time around we did 1892.
I will come back every time there is a new room to do! Every time I have been to Escape Quest the staff are consistently energetic, the rooms are engaging but not impossible to complete, and it's always a good time. I've loved puzzles and riddles and brain teasers since I was a kid and these rooms provide so many unique challenges that get your brain going.
I've done these rooms with just a couple of friends each time and we always have a laugh. Super great place for an hour or two of gameplay (depending on how many rooms you book), great for team building or just having a fun night out! GO VISIT!! :) :)

A blast!

I have been there a few times - I am not a big puzzle or gamer type person, but I always have a blast. The experiences in the rooms are creative and immersive. I like that there are multiple things to work on at once so that people can focus on what they are most drawn to/interested in.

Love Escape Quest ❤️
Sep 2020 • Friends
In January 2019, we tried our first escape room and it was the SJ Superhero Saga - it was awesome! Since then we played the 1892 Fire, Best Kind Rewind: A 90s Adventure, and Undead 2: Patient 709. We enjoyed each and every one of them! If I had to pick a fave, it’s definitely the 90s Adventure - truly a blast from the past. Love the storylines, variety of puzzles, and the staff are the friendliest creative geniuses around town.

Great time, even if you don't escape on time.
Sep 2020 • Family
My kids and I have done several rooms here to date, and each one is full of different content which doesn't overlap. They are all a great time even if you don't escape within the time limit, just gives you a reason to go back.
