Great birthday fun!

We have done two rooms there so far, and we had so much fun both times. We can't wait to see the new room that's being designed now. We will definitely be back.

Mayan Adventure
Apr 2021 • Family
Had five of us in this escape room for my wife’s birthday. Ages 17 and up. Had a lot of fun. The person running the game was super nice and explained things well. Unlike some escape rooms where you ask for a clue if you want one and where doing so may penalize your time, here, they supervise your game and come in to provide a hint of needed. This was a pretty challenging room, I believe they said only about 32% of groups solve it. The room is on the smaller side so you wouldn’t want a large group. Five or so is a good number. We did solve the room although with a couple of hints. A fun time though!

Mayan Mystery
Feb 2021
This is a review of Mayan Mystery. The game is a pretty low tech, first gen escape room. If you've never done an escape room, this one might be fun. The room was very clean to their credit, but if you're expecting something more than combination locks, you'll likely be disappointed.
Probably the most disappointing aspect of our experience was the gamemaster's refusal to deliver a hint the one time that we needed one. He did brief before the game that he would determine when we needed a nudge and would come into the room in character as our 'assistant'. First off, we paid $100 to have fun...this is our experience, not yours. Second off, coming into the room in person detracts from what little immersion this room offered already. Thirdly, perhaps more in person time during a pandemic is not the best idea.

We had a blast. The facility was clean, neat, well-organized, and most especially...fun! We would definitely do this again.

We had a great time! The puzzle was difficult but everyone contributed. Alex was great and helped us out a couple of times before we escaped! This was fun for the whole family

We had a great time! The puzzles were difficult and with just the two of us we didn't quite get through everything in the hour, but the experience was great. The girl who handled our experience gave a great intro and never let us stay stuck for long without a hint. I will absolutely be back.

Clue: It Was Great Fun!
Jul 2019
This was our first escape room experience and we had a blast! We did the Clue-themed room and (with some help from our room guy, Alex), figured who, what, where, and why. Well worth the money, and the time just flew by. We will definitely be back to try other rooms in the future!

Lots of Laughter!
May 2019 • Friends
We have been friends for decades and were all in town at the same time...so we decided it would be fun to do an escape room. We had so much fun! We laughed ourselves silly as we tried to decipher the clues and solve the puzzles. The staff was amazing and I couldn't recommend NWA Escape room more highly.

Problem-Solving Class Takes on Escape Rooms!
Feb 2019 • Family
Below you will find reviews from middle-school aged participants of a mini course focused on honing problem-solving skills in the context of escape rooms.

"Overall, we really enjoyed our trip to the NWA Escape room. We were in the Revengers room, and we had a great time. We are in middle school, and we had 10 people in our group. We thought it was a good amount of people for our team, because we were in two separate rooms for part of the time, communicating with each other over the phone. We were really impressed with the hospitality of the employees working there. They cared more about our safety than us breaking things. Also, we thought the skill level was perfect for eight middle schoolers and two teachers. If we had 20 more seconds, than we would’ve escaped. So it was really close, and we had a great time. The one thing we would’ve changed was the clue-giving. They would give us clues at random times, instead of us getting to pick and choose when we used clues to our advantage. Sometimes we didn’t even need the clues that they gave us, and wouldn’t come back to give us another clue for 25 minutes. After this trip to NWA Escape, we would go back and give it another shot. We had a great time! We would give this a 3.9/5."

"The Escape Room had a good level of detail. The Clue room wasn't as hard of challenge level as the other rooms so the other rooms were a good challenge level. Our group was a bunch of middle school students. Our satisfaction level was 8/10. They had excellent hospitality because they cared more about us than our group breaking items. Our group size was 8 people and it was too many people for that room."

"I experienced the "Clue" escape room with my school. It was challenging and engaging. We only got one part wrong. Do note, that this room was not about escaping, but rather about finding out who, what, where, and why. Overall, I had a great time, and I would recommend going with a group of friends as opposed to two or three people."

"It was an amazing experience! We had a group of eight in the Clue room and it was perfect. We are 12-14 years old and it was awesome. The people at escape genuinely care about the work that they do and their customers. Overall we would give this escape room a 7/10 because it was so entertaining!"

"Even though we didn’t escape, the NWA Escape was still extremely entertaining. Each room has a different theme, which is nice if you want to come multiple times (we were the Revengers). We had a group of 10 (7th and 8th graders) and we were very close to escaping. Some of the kids had done an escape room, while others hadn’t. Our group was divided into two rooms, which made it more challenging to find the other group. It was still really enjoyable. The staff was really nice and cared about their customers' safety. They came in the room to give us hints if we were stuck. Overall, the escape room was the right amount of challenging and fun."

"Our group of 6 middle schoolers enjoyed our time at NWA Escape Room. We did the Al Capone room, and the challenge level was well balanced for our group: it wasn’t hard yet it wasn’t easy. They had a very welcoming atmosphere, and they cared for our safety by giving us instructions on what to move and what not to move so we wouldn’t get hurt. The theme was well thought out, and the hint system was nicely integrated. We would highly recommend this escape room."

"Overall, we had an amazing time escaping from the Revengers room. Before we entered the room the staff gave a brief introduction to the story line. Despite a few malfunctions and unclear clues, we were intrigued by all of the uses technology. They had creative ways to foster team building and an exciting escape. If we seemed too stuck, the staff would come into the room and try to help. They never gave anything away."

"The Al Capone room was fun and engaging, but there were some things we think you could improve upon. We found that this room focused around numbers and math. We think it could be more diverse in the types of puzzles. But other than those small things, we thought it was a great experience. We would give this room 3 out of 5. "

"My group and I were in the Clue room. Everyone, including me, loved that we got to play a character. All of our clues were intriguing and everyone loved working together. The staff was very helpful and took part in making the experience even more interesting! One staff member even played the role of a “neighbor” that gave us hints. There was lots of information thrown at us, but it added a great aspect to the room. It’s a great brain exercise. This room definitely requires teamwork, but it didn’t seem like there was a lot of suspense. It didn’t feel like we had to escape… or else. Overall, this escape room was a fun experience and made us work as a team and put our minds together to escape. "

I think this was the largest group of 6th and 7th graders that we've had at one time. And we were happy to be able to work around your school day needs by opening up early. It was fun seeing you work together to try to problem-solve when you would get stuck on a puzzle for a while, and we allowed that a bit since that was the focus of your field trip. Hopefully we'll be able to have you back again someday!
