Went twice with family (including children age 8-12) and really enjoyed both times. It's exciting and a little suspenseful. The science aspects are both effective and really help drive the plot forward. They also provide powerful science lessons, though there's not much time to talk about it while you're trying to escape!

I've done lots of escape rooms, and this one is so well designed. You have to pay attention and work as a team. We finished with 11 seconds left! There's a lot of interesting science toys to play with too, but you don't need to know any science to finish it. Would go again!

It was a well-designed escape room with some high-school level scientific facts. The storyline was well-developed, with details in different places to support it. Many hidden clues to find and cool equipments to use. Overall it was a fun activity for team building, family and friends hangouts. Highly recommend this place to visit with a group of people in Champaign-Urbana area.

I attended a physics-themed escape room at the Boston American Physical Society meeting. It was a completely free event and my first time at an escape room. I had a few friends with no physics background who were skeptical at first. But in the end, we ended up having a fantastic time solving puzzles and learning about physics. Would highly recommend!

The best room escape game! Furthermore, this game has a completely unique style, and all the puzzles and clues are based on physics (but no prior knowledge required!). We escaped with 3 minutes left, and had a blast for every second!

I joined a team that was very kind, and we had a great time piecing together tools that allowed us to escape the room! The clues were very fun and accurately science based. I think it would pique the scientific interests of even the non scientist

I've done two of the three LabEscape rooms so far, and they are both great. The puzzles are smart and the storyline is original (and quite timely given its quantum computing angle!). Kudos to the team for making a great science-based escape room with very fun puzzles.

We were two families, each with a 12 year old. SO many cool puzzles to figure out in this physics themed escape room!!! We were proud that we got out with 30 seconds to spare. The hints were funny - we enjoyed our guide a lot.

We're glad you had a great time, and hope you can come back and "Return to the Lab" for the sequel. Plus, for several weeks in June we'll be offering an all-new Prequel mission. So many adventures, and so little time... (literally, as we're only around through the end of the year).

Our group was very much a techie group - we all work with physics and lasers. And we had a great time. Lots of captivating tricks and twists; our host did a great job conveying hints when we needed them without giving the solutions away. We escaped after being granted a three minute time extension. LabEscape does a great job exposing you to scientific and technical ideas in a thoroughly enjoyable way. I told at least three groups of friends about our experiences in the escape room over the following few days, and chuckled every time. I

The four of us barely escaped the sequel in challenge mode! Just the right amount of clues to help move you along but not make anything too obvious.
