WE loved it! Fun night event to do with our teenagers after a long ski day! We have done another Escape Room at Stratton and thought to give this one a try and had a lot of fun! Thanks!

We played the ‘Wild West’ game with 2 families and 4 kids age 10-14. It was great fun. Definitely worth checking out on that skiing off day. We’ll go back for one of the other games.

We had 8 people ranging from age 10 to 50. We had such a great time at The Crooked Key! It’s a great non-skiing activity - affordable, easy to book and fun for all. Highly recommend.

This is a great and fun activity!! Played a few escape rooms and this is by far the best one!! The clues were fun, challenging and very detailed! Would definitely recommend checking this place out to any one visiting Steamboat or any local!

Oh great! Thanks so much for making The Crooked Key part of your vacation plans. And yes, you can get drinks and food at Mahogany Ridge next door without even going outside. Win!

Most fun our family had during our weekend in Steamboat Springs. We chose the Wild West Jailbreak for our family escape. Perfect for both our 12yr old and 18yr old to do with mom and dad. Great puzzles and well done. Staff was friendly and...More

Our family of 6 ages from 10-15 had a great time. We have done something like 20 escape rooms, so we are starting to become snobby with high expectations and we are happy to say this room did not disappoint. No actual locks made it...More
