Me and a group of 3 other experienced escape room goers did Lockout Austins CIA: mystery in asylum room and it was awesome! Both the man at the front desk and our game host (Grant I believe he said his name was) were very friendly and great hosts. The lobby is filled with awesome little puzzles and games to play if you get there early which is an awesome added touch. The room and the puzzles were great! A similar and very good setup of a TV screen to show time and clues as used in other escape game companys. Lots of different puzzles and the room was very interactive with lights flashing for certain events and whatnot. We will absolutely be coming back to play the rest of the rooms! Also at a great price, I've played other escape rooms for other places and this is almost $10 cheaper! Absolutely recommend!

This was the third time I’ve been to the room and it still holds up. We did Area 51-2 and it was challenging but the puzzles are fun and completely doable with some outside the box thinking (and maybe an occasional hint). The attention to detail in the rooms is really wonderful as well. The staff is wonderfully energetic and engaging and very helpful in answering any questions before the game. They set the mood with intro monologues before the timer starts which I find absolutely adds to the experience. I was with some family and friends who have done other escape rooms and the consensus was Lockout Austin is the best. I will continue to bring my business here because every time is a blast!

I've done about 8-10 escape rooms at a variety of different companies in NYC, Cleveland, LA, and now Austin, and this place takes the prize for best in show so far. The actors were great, both the puzzles and the immersive aspect of the rooms are well designed, and gamemasters did an awesome job giving the right hints when we needed them. My group of four did both their CSI room and The Cursed Ship, and we enjoyed both and escaped both times. Staff is super friendly, funny, high energy, and generally aware, making contextual shifts based on what's happening vs. seeming like they follow a script. Great experience. Thanks, Lockout Austin!!

My 10 year old daughter and her friends had a blast with the virtual escape room. The actor was great and they said it was just like being there in person. She couldn’t stop raving about it! Awesome birthday party for these stay at home days.

I signed my daughters (ages 14 and 10) and they invited their cousins (15 and 13) for their virtual escape room (Goblet of Treasures). While we were in San Antonio, their cousins in Kerrville and the guide in Austin, you couldn't tell and everyone had a blast! Big kudos to our "Wizard" who made this an experience my family will cherish for a long time. Would highly recommend as a way to get friends "together."

This was my family’s first escape room together, but collectively we had 4 under our belt. Going into it we were excited, but unsure what to expect. We did the Area 51 themed room, and without any spoilers, this room amazed and impressed all of us. The puzzles were fun and challenging and were all built and designed by George and Bill. I recommend this for any family or group of friends looking for a great activity.

Eight of us escaped the Cursed Ship JUST in the nick of time! So much fun -- really tricky and satisfying to solve. Something for all different kinds of minds, from mechanical to storytelling. The staff was super fun and friendly, too. Thank you!

This locally-owned place is the bomb! The staff is funny and friendly. We did the Blue Meth room. Fairly high difficulty but we solved it with a little help from "the voice on the wall." I was amazed to learn that these guys invent and build their own rooms. This was our second visit. We will be back!

Had the BEST time. This is our second time back here. The first time we came in and loved it so much we played 3 in a row. Raven has been our game master all four times now and she’s the best!! Absolutely adore her.

Two friends and I had made a trip to Austin to play some rooms, and ended up taking on their Area 51-2, CSI (asylum?), and Blue Meth rooms. The setups in the rooms were fantastic with a good mix of different challenges and skill sets, their team that we got to deal with (nick and raven) were super helpful and friendly. They have 2 other rooms that we plan on returning for in the future!
