Had an amazing time at this challenging escape room. We narrowly escaped with only 30 seconds to spare. Scooter, our conductor, was fun, hilarious, kind and supportive, like the papa we never had. Thanks daddy Scoots! The introduction was campy and fun. It was refreshing...More

I did the Railcar with about seven other sharp folks, and we escaped with about five minutes to spare! The room itself was fun and challenging, and our host Tiny was pretty cool and helpful (without giving too much away). My biggest complaint was the...More

We went with a group of 10 friends and had a blast. Our leader bjorn was engaged and made sure it was an amazing experience for us all. Can’t wait to go back!! One of my fave escape rooms so far!

Escape artistry has lots of different rooms, with different scenarios, and a very creative narrative to tie them all together - so you want to come back again and again!

First timers in an escape room, loved every minute! Challenging but fun! We had 10 adults and used everyones’ brain power, for sure.

It was challenging and interesting. Staff were great throughout. I'd go again for sure. There were rooms where you can go with 10 people and still won't feel claustrophobic.

8 years old is very the youngest we suggest for our escape rooms. While we can adjust the difficulty of our rooms during game play 'The Railcar' will still be very challenging for a group that is so young. We love... More
