Fun escape room experience with good theming, just needs some small improvements
Aug 2021
On a rainy day at the beach last week, we decided to book an escape room. The booking process online is very easy (if you know there's a bad weather day, book early, as we saw things fill up quick). We booked the Pirate room (8 out of 10 difficult) and there were 8 of us. We were greeted upon entering and confirmed our reservation. The front desk employee was very nice and took us to our room and she explained everything about it. Some of the positives: good theming, clever puzzles, fairly lineal puzzle solving with nothing really obscure, multiple puzzles can be solved at once if people spread out. Some of the weaknesses: the count down clock is right next to the door and can be "altered" (my son found this out by accident), the room is fairly small considering the max is 8 people, for our group pic at the end they didn't have any "we did it!" signs or anything like that.
Overall, a good experience and we did complete the room.

4 player minimum
Aug 2021 • Family
Need to allow for three players and not have the lower lint of four, especially in those small rooms.

There is too much lost revenue on smaller groups. We went to Captive rooms.

Great Room...Challenging Experience...Definitely Worth It.
Jul 2021 • Friends
A year and half after the start of the pandemic, and OC, MD was my first overnight adventure. Of course, an Escape Room was on the list. I discovered Ocean City only has two ERs (each with multiple locations though). Escapemania was the second one we visited during our stay.

Staff: The staff was very friendly, down to the little kid. We were greeted in a timely manner.

Location: This location is across the bridge on what consider "the OC Island". It's a little whiles distance from the Boardwalk, but only a block or two from the beach. This location is a nice size. The waiting room allows space for a small group to wait, and another group to pass through. Unlike our previous experience with a different company, this location had a normal smell. The bathroom was clean, which is always a plus to me. They sell Exit Board Games too, if you're a fan.

Parking: . It's located within a shopping mall (not major stores). As such, there is ample FREE parking.

Cleanliness (COVID): All of the staff wore masks the whole time we were there. The place looked clean. I don't know if they clean each room after each group, but it did appear clean. There is a hand sanitizer station, and the bathroom is clean.

The Room/Experience: My group and I (3ppl) played the Sherlock Home Mystery, which is supposedly one of their harder rooms. Without any spoilers, you get one hour and 10 minues to solve a bank robbery and escape Sherlock's office. I will admit, the room was a challenge, BUT fun. We finished the game with nearly 3 minutes to spare. Our Game Master kept an eye out and helped us when we were stumped (at least 3 or 4 times).

Overall, the storyline was cool, and the entire experience was great.

Would I recommend? Depends. If you're like my group and I, who have nearly 30 rooms under our belt, then go for the challenge. HOWEVER, if you're new to the experience or you've played a few and wouldn't consider yourself an expert at ERs, then it maybe too much of a challenge. Nevertheless, everyone's experience is different, so for $33/pp, give it a try.

Fun with our teens!
Jul 2021
We did the Poltergeist room and loved it. We were not the greatest sleuths, but we managed to complete the room in time. More importantly, our teens enjoyed it too! So we call that a win! The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Great for newcomers OR veterans!
Jul 2021
Escapeomania is GREAT! My family and I have done nearly 100 escape rooms and consider ourselves "seasoned veterans". We did the "Black Sails" room here and absolutely LOVED it. It was challenging, engaging, fun, and VERY family friendly. The props and gags are of the highest quality, and the staff were incredibly friendly and supportive. They WANT you to succeed, and it shows. The cost is reasonable for the level of experience they provide as well... which, in the escape room business, isn't always the case. All in all, we really enjoyed our time as Escapomania... and would definitely visit there again.

Online ordering/customer service needs improvement
Jul 2021 • Family
This company needs to improve their booking system and customer service. They had no record of my booking (4 people = $124, so no small amount) when we arrived. After a five minute argument my booking was “found”. The female employee was helpful in resolving the situation.

Poor customer service on the part of the male employee I spoke with on the phone who said he’d never spoken with me when we arrived for our reservation (I called right after I ordered when I realized there was a typo in my email address- be VERY careful when you type in your email address when ordering). We never received email confirmation of our reservation even though I’d called to correct my email address and was assured our reservation was in the system. I logged in to my credit card account and the charge was processed, so I could have initiated a chargeback as a last resort.

Once we were finally admitted the experience itself was OK (not great, but not terrible). But online ordering and customer service need some work.

Wonderland was a great experience
Jun 2020 • Family
Looking for a great escape experience that’s interesting but not too difficult?
We chose the “Wonderland” room at OC’s midtown location. The room was very clean and decorated perfect for the theme. Best experience so far.

Good Time!
Aug 2019 • Family
We decided to try an escape room in O.C. while on vacation. We chose the Mad Scientist. We have done many escape rooms and enjoy the challenge. We had a little bit of difficulty getting started, but with the first clue were off and running and had an enjoyable time! We will definitely try another room.

Great Time
Jul 2019 • Family
We needed a mid day break from the beach and decided to try an escape room. We did the pirate theme room and it was a great time. We had 7 of us to include my parents and a 9, 14 and 16 year old. Staff was super friendly. Even gave us a few more minutes since we were so close to finishing the room. We made it!!! Would suggest to everyone.
