Escape New Haven is New Haven's first and only escape-the-room venue, and an adventure for your mind and senses. Players are locked in a room and have 60 minutes to puzzle their way out, discovering keys and combinations along the way. Explore, adapt, work together, think creatively -- and you just might ESCAPE!

I have always wanted to try an escape room. I’m so glad we chose this one. Even though we didn’t “escape” from the Crypt, we were a couple of puzzles away from the end. I think the puzzles were challenging, but not so difficult that...More

First and foremost, one of the main things that I look for when I go to play an escape room is the initial interaction with the staff. I've found through the numerous rooms that I've played up to this point that most escape room owners...More

It was my first experience of playing room escape game and I had more fun than I expected. Maybe we picked a difficult room, the puzzles are fun and sophisticated, but a bit difficult to solve in an hour.

This was my third or fourth visit to Escape New Haven. It never disappoints. This particular room (The Gallery) was difficult. With 5 of us in a room for 6, I think we needed another 30 minutes to escape. The room I believe has only...More

Escape New Haven's Gallery was a well-designed and somewhat whimsical challenge, which drew on many different ways of thinking and seeing. Our family group of two older and four younger adults was intensely and fully engaged from the moment we entered the room. It was...More
