Fun experience
Jul 2019 • Family
Im only rating it 4 stars because our picture was never uploaded to social media. Although that might sound silly, I was looking forward to keeping it as a memory. Not sure what happened. I called twice to ask about it but it never got uploaded. Just bummed that I see everyone else's picture get posted but ’ll never get mine.

an hour of misery!
Jun 2019 • Friends
We called several times to ask questions but no answer. Arrived and had the most aggressive introduction to their rules and consequences of actions they deem wrong. The room was so dimly lit, we could hardly read the cryptic scrolls or tell the colors of the items. We did not find the room difficult just unorganized, no clear path to pursue, hints that gave no real help with the game and worn out props/clues that need to be replaced.

BRAVO for EXCEPTIONAL Service
Feb 2019 • Family
Long story short, this business should be applauded for its friendly, accommodating employees and top-notch service. Manager Sara is not only kind and compassionate, but believes in doing what's right to make the escape room experience special for everyone. It is our second visit to Gone in 60 and we have never been disappointed. As an escape room enthusiast, I can say with full honesty that Gone in 60 provides the most beautifully thematic rooms with challenging and fun puzzles to solve. But what's more important than the rooms themselves are the people that make up the business. Employee and Gamemaster Gwen provided welcoming and accommodating service. Her dedication to providing an impeccable game experience to each customer was extraordinary. The employees at Gone in 60 are a cut above the rest because they truly understand that compassion and kindness are what makes an experience special. Do yourself a favor and visit Gone in 60. Whether you're from Peoria or are taking a trip, you won't be disappointed!

Medical Staff fun event
Dec 2018 • Business
We had a party of 14 so I rented in advanced 2 of the scape rooms (The Morgue & Coven) you can select private or public which we rented the private so we can have only our group. It was the first time experience for everyone except for 2 that they have visited other scape rooms. In my experience I have lots of fun, it was pretty cool working together to be successful, some time life is not fair, my team didn't make it (The Morgue) but the other team did (Coven). I asked everyone if they would like to come back and they all said YES. Fun accomplished!
One Note: they do not allowed any device into the rooms, but they did let Dr., which he was on call bring his Smart watch in case of emergency. Thank you Gone in 60 for the consideration.
We will be back.

Fun evening out in Peoria
Dec 2018 • Couples
My wife and I joined 6 strangers and did the "Coven" room. It was a lot of fun and I'd highly recommend it. The gamemaster did a great job explaining what to do and was attentive throughout the game. We had a blast and will definitely go back to try the other rooms they have available.

Still a little confused
Oct 2018 • Family
Took my family here for a "family fun event". We did the Contagion Room. From the minute we walked in, it did not feel we were especially welcomed. After we went in room, being a newbie, and after we watched the video clip, still didn't understand really what we were trying to accomplish, other than searching for numbers to unlock things. While we made the most of it and had fun (kind of), we did not escape. The part that really made me disappointed was at the end when our game master said in a monotone voice "so, do you still want a picture?"...as if "you didn't escape, but do you still want one anyway?". I would like to try another room that maybe had more of a plot or situation to figure out, but this one left me feeling we were missing something or those that put it together missed something. I'm not sure, but first impressions of an escape room left something to be desired. Still giving a "very good" rating so not trying to hurt the reputation, just some pointers to improve the experience for others. We are educated individuals so it's not as if we just "didn't understand" the concept, but... obviously others loved it and conquered so who knows?

Certainly NOT the experience we want to provide. I am sorry you did not get a better experience from our staff. Our Gamemasters are instructed to give more explanation for those who haven't played before - so perhaps that was missed? You should have received a fun experience - escape or not. Thank you for the feedback so we can work with our employees.

Great time
Sep 2018 • Couples
It was our first attempt at an escape room and enjoyed our hour. Yes, we took the full hour and didn’t make it out of great Aunt Sarah’s cabin. We had a good time and may take a second try at it. The puzzles were difficult for us “newbies “. The staff was very nice to work with and we enjoyed our experience.

Great ambiance, good puzzles
Aug 2018 • Friends
Loved my visit to Gone in 60! I've been to a few other escape rooms - one that I would term excellent, one mediocre, and one pretty bad. I would put this one in the top tier.

We were able to escape from our room without using all of the clues (granted, we had an extra one from doing a Facebook check-in) and with 6 minutes left with only 3 people, so it might not be quite as challenging as some... but we purposely chose the room (The Coven) labeled as being the easiest specifically because we only had 3 people. (Plus, we had all done escape rooms before.) I think it would provide sufficiently challenging for most groups.

I thought the puzzles were good, no complaints at all. But even better was the setting, which I thought was incredibly well done. The staff (while very slightly disorganized) was friendly and helpful.

Overall: major thumbs up to Gone in 60; I hope to come again next time I'm in town!

Private room booking
Aug 2018 • Family
We had our two 9 year old grandsons so we booked a private room out of consideration to other adults who might have been added to our group. The contagion room was nicely appointed and the staff was pleasant. They took a photo at the end but I have not been able to find it on their web site. Emailing it to us would have been a nice added feature.

We had done an escape room previously in Chicago with our younger grandchildren and had a better experience due to having more interaction with our “guide” ie.. staff . We were also given more direction. I highly recommend that Gone in 90 take a more individualized approach to their booking groups, especially the private room bookings with younger children.

A fun and exciting way to spend an hour!
Jul 2018 • Couples
Had a great experience from start to finish. It was my first escape room, so I do not have anything to compare it to, but now I am addicted and want to do more! We did The Coven room and had 4 people and I felt like that was a good amount of people. It holds 8, but felt 8 may be too many for that room. We escaped with 23 seconds to spare! So many little surprises in the room!!! Loved it!!!
