Wizard’s Tower, stay away
Feb 2019 • Family
My family and I have completed over 50 escape rooms and enjoy several of Maze Rooms offerings like Magic Kingdom and Lunar Mission. However, Wizard’s Tower at the Cahuenga location was a disaster. There is no clock in the room, so you never have an idea how much time is left and they never warn you. The goal of the room was explained as trying to find and make the potion for eternal life. However, the instructions had us make a “door opening” potion. When we completed it, we expected to need to make another potion or find an item to complete the task. Then all of the sudden she walked in the room and said “done”. It was the strangest end to an escape room ever. We thought we had failed but she said “no. You did it. Good job.” This Room has everything you want to avoid in an escape room: lots of scavenging for hidden items, leaps in logic, random clues that go nowhere, hard to read in the dim lighting items, etc. And as another reviewer mentioned, the lady who was giving the clues had such a thick accent and said them in such a strange manner that they didn’t help anyway. In such a saturated escape room market, there are far better options.

Vampire Room
Dec 2018 • Business
We did this as an outing for work. We definitely didn't realize we booked a hard Room but it was fun to figure out. They make it a really great evening out even though it was super difficult. It took us 3 hints to solve it right before the 60 minute mark. The vampire Room was awesome

Wizard Tower
Nov 2018 • Family
We had a horrible experience from the moment we walked into the room. She didn’t explain the theme very well and then we couldn’t understand what she was saying when she gave us the clues. She also didn’t let us know how much time we had left so we weren’t able to complete it. Fail and majorly overpriced! Super disappointed.

Portal was broken
Jul 2018 • Friends
We were a group of 4 who attempted Portal on 7/28/18. We all have a good amount of escape room experience and have really enjoyed every Maze Room brand game that we have done.
We were excited to tackle Maze Room's only room listed as an 'Impossible" difficulty and it was in fact 'Impossible' because many of the puzzles were broken. I was fully prepared the loose the game on my own merit, but loosing because the room was old, worn out and in need of repair was not the experience any of us wanted. Additionally, The GameMaster seemed checked out and uninterested in us having a good experience which was odd because every previous Maze Room GameMaster has been engaging and genuinely interested in us have a great experience.

For Example:
We attempted a puzzle that we got incorrect on the first try and it locked-us-out. We struggled for 5-10 minutes trying to figure it out and finally asked her for a hint over the walkie-talkie. She entered the room and admitted that the puzzle was frequently broken and tried to reset it, which she had difficulty doing herself. Any time something like this has happened in previous rooms, the GameMaster (watching on a monitor) would realize that we were struggling with a known-issue and let us know that the issue was game related and not us getting it wrong. She wasted 5-10 minutes of our time struggling with a broken puzzle before we were able to reset it and try again.
There were also additional issues consistent with an worn out game including:



- Black Light paint that was too old and faded to be detected or legible.
- A final puzzle that didn't make sense or work. We asked her to show us how it worked and she attempted it herself but could not trigger it either. She tried for a while to activate it and finally said "I know how it's supposed to work, but I can't make it work".
She then told us that our time was up and that we had to leave.

The 4 of us have only had excellent experiences at other Maze Room locations. This one however was a busted and worn-out room that did not live up to the Maze Room brand. It should be overhauled or retired.

Worst escape game experience ever
May 2018 • Friends
Hello,

We would like to complaint for the way our last escape room went with your company.

We have played on May 6th at 3.30 the room Portal and have experienced, independently from its level « impossible », one of the worst escape room ever and we have a significant experience in this field (50+ done with more than 80% success rate).

When we were trying to open the « lock » in the center of the room, we asked our gamemaster to repeat the last hint as we had tried everything but still could not open the door to the second room.

We called her through the talkie walkie for at least 20 minutes, shouted through the door, made signs in front of the camera to ask for help. No answer at all.

Then suddenly she reappeared, repeated the last hint and one of the combination we tried before worked.

We were highly demotivated when we entered the second room as we had lost a lot of time with no reply at all and thought everything was lost.

Our gamemaster, without telling us, apparently kindly allowed us some additional time but as we were not aware of it, were not really in the mood anymore. Moreover, we experienced technical issues in this second room which made us lose some of this « additional time we were not aware of ».

This is the first time ever than a gamemaster does not answer us at all for +20 minutes when we were desperatly asking for a hint to be repeated.

We really feel we didn't get our value for money taking into account the fact that we have already not escaped from a game but felt we were the only ones to be blamed for not escaping.

The four of us left this maze room experience feeling very disappointed by the experience.

Since then, after several emails, we never received any answer from your company and this needs to become public.

Best,

PORTAL room is fun, but hard, not for beginners :)
Feb 2018 • Friends
We have tried PORTAL and it was a great experience! Even though it was a pretty hard room, all tasks can be logically and the story is interesting and engaging. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I would definitely try other rooms.

Magic Kingdom Lived Up To The Hype
Feb 2018 • Family
Magic Kingdom room is like no other room we experienced. One Adult and two teenagers. There was a malfunction with the hint system but that didn't detract from our experience. This is a fun room for almost all ages. A small group of tweens or young teenagers (8 or less) would go nuts for this place. Moderate difficulty on the puzzles. Only complaint was the A/C was too high and it was like an ice box but they turned it down for us. We loved it.

Best Maze Room Company in LA
Jan 2018 • Friends
This is my favorite maze room company, and the Magic Kingdom room is by far the best room I've ever been too! It was simply amazing and so much fun! Thanks to Will for being an awesome game master! Will be back to try out the new rooms!

Everything is great! Just watch the difficulty rating
Nov 2017 • Friends
We've done escape rooms before and have a general idea of difficulty ratings. We chose a 3/5 difficulty which is the FBI theme. It was a great room, but we would say that's a 4/5 and then we played Castle 2/5. So everything is great about this company, but I'd say their stuff is generally more difficult. It's also great how many locations they have and their large selection of themes.
