Haven’t been back here for a couple years after doing carnival, the swamp, and speakeasy (highly recommend all of them, btw) but came back this afternoon for the release of their brand new Pirate room.

In total I’ve probably done ~50 rooms in the past few years, and I went with my parents who have done ~10-15.

Being completely honest when I say that this new Pirate room ranks in my Top 3 rooms I’ve ever done when it comes to puzzle creativity and use of clues, game ideology, and most importantly the ambiance and general set up of the room. This room oozes immersion, interactivity to exponential degrees, and new surprises around every corner.

As the first players of this room, we had the pleasure of having both Kenny and Tina as our game masters, who of course were immensely helpful and generous with clues for this insane new room premise. If the game itself doesn’t sell you, you need to go just to hear Kenny give the intro to the room. You won’t be disappointed!

If you’re in between what room to do, don’t give it another thought - you NEED to do this new pirate room. Thank me later.

Thanks again, Tina and Kenny! We’ll be back!

My boyfriend and I were looking for something fun to do on a cold day in NJ and stumbled upon Escape the Puzzle Room in Long Branch and we are so glad we did! The staff (Tina and Kevin?) are so friendly and the escape rooms were incredibly thoughtfully made. Kevin the game master was in character and so attentive the whole experience. We chose the Tower Room as we were just two people and it was made for 6 (the other rooms are made for groups of 6-12). We truly enjoyed our time here and see how much passion and work these people put in to their business. Highly recommend! They showed us the swamp puzzle room and we definitely want to go back to try it out!

We came here with 8 people, and a great time was had by all. The puzzles were very creative and interesting, and we worked our way through them as a team. Most importantly of all, the staff were helpful and accomadating.
I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking to have a great time while working together and solving puzzles. Kudos!

This was our first Escape Room ever, and while our noobness showed, rather embarrassingly, it was still a blast. The puzzles were challenging and wildly creative, and our Gamemaster Manny tailored his hints to help us out. My daughter (12) couldn't stop talking about how much fun she had, and how proud she was of us for our first time. She's already talking about the next time. Thank you Tina and Manny, for taking our noobness in stride, and making it fun, even though we were horrendously dense lol. We'll see you again soon!

Hello K8 Your noobness was a joy to behold. It is our delight when our players have a great time. We only have 6 more games for you to try. And since you met Tina, you know she is building #8. Gabe & Tina

We had a great time escaping the swamp. The entry point was a bit hectic, but the room itself was a lot of fun. Friendly Gamemaster who was helpful and a nice spacious multi-room puzzle that challenged but did not frustrate us.

Went here with a couple of friends and we had a blast! 2 of us were familiar with escape rooms, and the other 2 were rookies. Gabe was a great host, explained things well, and really immersed us in the setting of the Room with his story telling! The room we did was challenging but fun! We'll definitely be back to try the other rooms! Thank you! We'll definitely tell our co-workers about this!

What fun my 12 year old birthday girl and her friends had!! I was worried how eight 6th graders would do in Swamp but Gabe and Tina were so helpful. We had nothing but good time there. Highly recommended for anyone!

Tina is amazing! We enjoyed the Tower room so much that we came back the next day to do the animal kingdom before going home from our vacation. The rooms are brilliantly done and every part of it is really cool
