The Escape Ventures, simply put, is one of (if not) THE BEST escape room locations in the Orlando area. With rooms featuring unique themes, it is an experience that simply cannot be missed!! From the moment you walk in the doors, you’re warmly greeted, and feel like you are a part of the team as opposed to just another player. In terms of the rooms, the immersion and scenery are incredible, and the puzzles all fit with the storyline. You can tell just by talking with the owners, Curtis and Derek, just how much passion and time they devote to this place. I cannot wait for them to open up more games!

For those worried about safety, The Escape Ventures follows all proper protocol with private games, masks, and sanitizers. Always felt completely safe!

If you ever find yourself in the Orlando area, The Escape Ventures is a MUST!!

OMG ... these rooms were SO MUCH FUN! We ended up doing all three rooms one right after another. Lauren and Johnny were the most excellent hosts/game masters and really got into their roles as they introduced the rooms to us! Each of the rooms was very unique and we could tell that a lot of thought went into the design of each room! I'd highly recommend this site if you love escape rooms that are unique! Loved them all!

From the rooms to the staff, Escape Ventures is a fantastic experience. Jon and Lauran were both super helpful and great game masters. They were really accommodating and definitely immersed themselves in the "roles" they played as part of the rooms. As for the rooms, the design of each is incredible. The thought that goes into the details is beyond compare. You really feel like you're in the location rather than just a decorated room. "Bro's Life" genuinely transported me back to university. "Granny's" felt like a real home Christmas. "Outage" was the definition of creepy, dilapidated building. Everything comes together to build a holistic, complete experience. Genuinely among our favourite escape rooms ever. We can't wait until their fourth room opens, definitely coming back!

Wow! I’m floored by this place. I’ve played over 340 escape rooms which means it’s hard to find those games that blow me away and leave me astounded. MUCH less to find three game’s at the same location that can do that.

Bro’s For Life was such a fun, amazing adventure. It is a one of a kind experience with unique puzzles.

Satirical Miracle - Granny’s Blackmail- So flipping cute and fun!! Such a unique and exciting experience.

Outage - I’ve played three prior “dark” rooms. And they were not for me. They just didn’t get my motor running. I had no interest in playing Outage at first because that type of room was never my cup of tea. After about 10 other people gushed about this room, we decided to add it on last minute. IT WAS EVERYTHING a “dark” escape room should be. It was so fun and perfectly executed.

I can’t tell you how excited I am for this business to come out with more games. This place was awesome.

Also, Char was our GM during the two different days we were there and for all three of our games. She made the experience great. She was friendly and fun, and added to what are already three amazing escape rooms.

Don’t miss this place, and if you come, book ALL the games. Don’t miss out like we “almost” did.

Whether you're a local or visiting the Orlando area, you definitely have to "venture" out to The Escape Ventures. After playing 45+ rooms around the nation, I thought I had my favorite room picked out.....but then I played their room, Bros For Life Fraternity Heist, and that quickly changed. The room is stunning from the moment you walk through the door. Every detail inside the room was immaculate - even down to the texture on the bricks. The owners are SO sweet and truly care about their craft and make their passion evident inside their rooms. Whether you're new to escape rooms or an escape room enthusiast, a trip to the Escape Ventures should be at the top of your list!

Hands down one of the most well done escape rooms in Orlando! Unique concepts, puzzles and set design! The owners and game masters are great and make the entire experience very immersive as well as inclusive!

They offer accommodations if you don’t like loud noises or need certain lighting conditions which I really really appreciated and would love to see more of.

We played “bros for life” as well as their “outage” room and both were amazing final and lighthearted experiences that I would recommend anyone go to! They have rooms for all experience levels and their game masters make sure to take care of you :)

A fresh take on the escape room experience while still keeping the traditional charm and challenge of escape rooms.

Great job Derek and CJ, my boyfriend and I are excited to see what y’all have in store for the future!

I went with a group of friends for galentines day and we had the best time!! Everything is extremly well thought out and the details are great! They even had a basket for you to place your belongings in while you play! The puzzles are a lot of fun and had a lot of variation. I'd highly recommend this if it is your first time doing an escape room because they explain everything very thoroughly. The owners are also very sweet, and the lighting for the picture at the end is very flattering.

I have been to over 40 escape rooms. This one is in my top three for sure. The owner has put his heart and soul into the rooms and you can surely tell. There is such attention to detail. I loved the clear-cut instructions before starting the room and having plenty of time after the game to discuss how we played. I love the non-obtrusive way they give clues. You could take them or leave them. I don’t like escape rooms where too many clues are given. Also, there was a logical way to Problem solve at each point. None of the puzzles were ridiculously nebulous as I have seen in the past. I can’t wait to go back and do his other rooms. And what a great Covid activity! Very few places offer all their rooms as private even when there’s only two people in the group.

This was one of the best experience we have had in an escape room, the room was very authentic and one of a kind. From the storytelling to the sound design, every aspect of the room was intriguing and immersive! Especially the flow of the room was awesome and I can thank the designers, Derek and Curtis, for bringing something new for escape room players! The owners Curtis and Derek were very friendly and made a big difference in how our outcome of the game went. I recommend this venue to all and can not wait until the new game, “Bro’s for Life” is open. Thanks Escape Ventures for a great experience. See you soon. 😃

Such a great time!! I did the Granny's Christmas Crusade which was a fun storyline! The puzzles all made sense and gave my group a very fun challenge. The scene of the room was very well thought out and it was such an immersive experience. I can't wait to do some more rooms!!
