We have been to other escape rooms and absolutely loved the experience. This one did not live up to our experience. There are absolutely no clues given that help lead to the first or next puzzle. You don’t know which to start with, especially when the cards you are supposed to get your first clue from are placed in the incorrect rooms. The thought process used to figure out some of the puzzles is super questionable, in that you could easily use a different process but no real instruction given to know which process to use. The whole experience was not fun. The staff, on the other hand, was very nice and offered clues and help. They were the only part of this experience we appreciated.

Come in with a group of friends this past weekend - we had a blast! We picked the "Black Site" room. It involved a lot of numbers and puzzles but it was a lot of fun. We made it out in good timing. Would love to come back and try another room.

We really enjoyed working together as a team to solve all of the puzzles and were able to escape with 12 min to spare. It was very enjoyable and great to do something with co-workers outside of our office.

We had a great time figuring out the clues and getting out of the room, each person gave input into the clues and we made it out!

I've done numerous escape rooms and so while visiting family in the Springs, we all decided to give it a shot (this was the first time for several). We choose "Timebomb" as our room and I really wished we had chosen something else. There weren't a whole lot of traditional escape room elements here, and the entire activity was more geared toward a large corporate team building exercise. The set up was cool, but it's just your group doing LOTS of math.

We easily booked online about 8 hours prior. The website is organized really well and has ratings of each room. It was easy to find and the building looks new on the inside. We arrived early. The facilitators are "on call" and arrived shortly after us. We started on time and went to a briefing room where we were told the rules and scenario. It was just our group of 5. We then went to the room (Hangover). The room was clean except for the bedding (very dirty). There was a picture falling off the wall and another that was missing (not part of the game). We were given an hour to figure out all of the clues. One of the keys "accidentally" opened the wrong lock...so were told to ignore that until we found the correct key. We didn't end up solving it...would have been more fun if were given more time. One of the clues was really difficult due to the fact that it wasn't easily legible and had a lot of "background" markings. The facilitator was really nice and debriefed us afterward. The price after the "half price" discount was decent ($14). No other discounts can be applied (military) when using the half price discount. Overall we had fun and will consider doing it again.

We were very excited and they didnt charge us for the toddlers that came but she charged us full price for the 8, 11, and 12 year olds that should have been less. Then my father in law asked if they did a military discount and she told him NO even though it says online that they do. It wasnt very much fun (we have been to many and love escape rooms which is why we took the fam) a few of the boxes didnt even work and one they didnt have the key for so we couldn't have finished it even if we wanted to. It was very frustrating. We spent almost $200 for our family to do this and we will not be back. Head to a different escape room and have fun!!!

Hi Brenda - As relatively new owners of Escape the Place, we were a little surprised at what happened to you for the Timebomb room pricing. After some investigation, it appears that the booking system handles the Timebomb escape room differently than the other escape rooms. Specifically, because Timebomb was set up to have a reduced price based on a higher number of participants, it was not designed to have other discounts. Unfortunately, we have not made that very clear on our website and it doesn’t make particularly good sense. As a result, we are discounting your escape experience by 50% and will return $96 to the card that you used for purchase. We would appreciate you reconsidering your recent review but regardless, we have refunded the amount above. Please let us know if it does not appear on your side within three business days. Have a great day!

I recently visited Colorado and when I was driving through the city I saw the sign for escape the place. I have been to several escape rooms before and was really excited to try this one out. I called to find out the details and the person I talked to was very kind and gave me all the info I needed. They also have a convenient online booking process that makes it really easy. I gathered up my group and we did the ‘black site’ room. Escaped with 20mins and it was fairly easy. I had an amazing time there and would definitely go back to try some of their other rooms.

Staff were fantastic with our group of 13 & 14 year olds for my son’s birthday! They also did a great job accommodating our meal post escaping the room. We did the “Chamber” room and our group was able to escape with 11 minutes to spare. Great fun for all!
