This is a well designed "escape room". We were a party of eight and the many different puzzles kept our group very busy. Some required brain power but none were too difficult. With a one hour time limit, we did not solve all of the puzzles but finished enough to be "successful". The game involves moving through several rooms, all automated, and well constructed. I would recommend

My family and I did the Around the World in 80 days room. I really liked the approach of trying to get a certain score instead of getting out of the room in time- you get a full hours of entertainment.

The puzzles were a cool mix of math, word puzzles, logic and clue hunting. The staff is super friendly and helpful, and the environment/rooms and themes were fun and felt the right amount of immersive. We also liked the level of challenge, there were puzzles we didn’t finish, and puzzles we got done with really fast. They also had a strong emphasis on communication and team work

Yet again the Decode Detroit/Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor team has masterfully created an escape room that is sophisticated, charming, challenging, and still manageable. I loved the styling of the set, and the puzzles were both fun and challenging. The owners do a wonderful job being super personable, professional, and engaging. I highly recommend this room, and their others!

This was my first escape room and it was a great time. We were a group of four and enjoyed figuring out some of the puzzles together and other puzzles alone because we felt a time crunch. There were interesting puzzles and the the scenario was interesting. It was great that a member of the staff played an acting role too. I would recommend this escape room to others.

My family and I have probably been to 20-30 escape rooms in various US states and several European countries. "In 80 Days around the World" at Decode Ann Arbor ranks as the best or very close to it. There were 9 of us (4 adults and 5 pre-teen sand teens) and we all had a blast. Everyone was fully engaged, finding something to work on collaboratively for 60 minutes. We couldn't solve all the puzzles and would like to return a second time to get to the bottom of the remaining ones.

We did the Around the World room with 3 teenagers and 3 adults. It was challenging enough to be a little frustrating at times, which is exactly what we were hoping for. We had such a great time and would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a fun and challenging adventure.

Celebrated my sister's birthday with a group of 8 at Decode and had a blast! The design of the escape room is impressive. The decor was very well done and the story telling of the experience is convincing. The puzzles were collaborative and exciting. The employees made our experience seamless and enjoyable. Would absolutely recommend visiting Decode!

My friends and I have done half a dozen escape rooms together, and Decode Ann Arbor's "Around the World in 80 Days" experience was a blast! The staff member was welcoming and supportive, and the facility felt clean and safe for pandemic-era fun. The escape experience was creative and full of enough distinct puzzles to keep our group of 7 happily occupied (and I enjoyed the whimsy of the theme and decor). I'd definitely recommend Decode Ann Arbor and hope to return to experience more of their rooms soon!

We have played all their previous rooms so we’re excited to try this new one. We had a group of 6 people. We had a lot of fun. Thanks puzzles are a great mix of challenges. There are so many, we all want to go back and play again! The level of difficulty varied and the hint system was a nice feature to use if needed / desired.

Highly recommend Decode Detroit!

while back in Ann Arbor for the holidays, I arranged a visit to Decode Ann Arbor for my family. There were 10 of us ranging from almost 5 years old (one of 4 kids under age 12) to over 70 and we all had a good time. Everyone was able to help - my mom provided insight into motown music, my daughter did sudoku & my niece helped us count drawers to open in a pattern (though we might have escaped if we'd done that at adult speed - we just missed it!). I was looking for a fun interactive experience and this absolutely fit hte bill
