We recently celebrated my 14 yo daughter's birthday by inviting 6 of her friends to the Abandoned Factory room. There was a broken item in the room, and our time needed to be stopped because a couple of the clues were not reset correctly. However, Jessica made our experience fun. She provided a couple extra clues. She kept our gifts in the office while we worked on the room. It did seem like they were understaffed. We also purchased the room through Groupon and maybe if I had paid full price and was really into having a strict escape room experience, I may have given a lower rating. In the end, everyone had fun and the room was very challenging with nice twists.

Great experience, would definitely do it again. Honestly didn’t know what to expect but everyone has a blast. We did the Once upon a time experience with 5 adults and one ten year old, with 9 minutes to spare. The room was a little smaller than expected but wasn’t bad. It maybe made it more fun since there weren’t many distractions .

The room really was interesting! We did Once Upon a Time with 2 people, and we managed to escape with 18 minutes left. The room had a cool theme and many surprises. We got stumped a couple of times, but we had excellent help from our game master. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone in the area looking for a unique experience.

We are a family of 6 that was traveling for the weekend. We paid $210 for us to do the Abandoned Factory Room. To say we are extremely disappointed would be an understatement. One of the clues we solved but the door didn’t open so an employee came abt 5-7 mins later and opened it. We got almost to the end of the mission only for there to be yet another issue with the props. The tubes has letters for the last lock code that had been worn off. Instead of a R it appeared as a P, and the O was half worn off and appeared to be an J. Without those letter we couldn’t move forward. When we told them this there was no apology or effort to maybe give us another room or give us the opportunity to finish this one. My kids were more than Disappointed. Would have been a great experience if the stuff actually worked and was prepared correctly. Wouldn’t suggest this place to anyone

I went to Can You Escape? LI with my family, nieces and sisters (all together 10 people) during Presidents Day. It was such a great experience. The room first looks so small but then opens up to other areas. The employee who helped us was very friendly and explained the rules very well. My only concern would be that items that we should not be touching should be labeled as (Not a Part of Game). There were some things that said do not touch but we were not sure if it was just a part of the game.

We had an amazing experience at can you escape LI! We felt extremely safe with their COVID precautions, had our own room, everyone was wearing masks and were assured everything was cleaned between parties. We did the subway room and it was so much fun! The young girl who worked at Can You Escape and guided us was so friendly and welcoming. I can’t wait to go back to try another room!

We went here as a date night.... was a great experience, Going in, we honestly thought we wasn't gonna win cause it was just us two, but surprisingly we did!! Also shout-outs to the assistant because we figured out one of the puzzles but we weren't going fast enough so after trying it three different ways a message popped on the screen "you had it right the first time" lol... denfinitely will be back

This place is our go to escape room. The rooms are challenging and the staff is awesome. The only negative I have about this place is the props in the room need to be replaced. There have been rooms where props have been broken, ripped, or not accurate writing, etc. which either makes you waste time getting out of the room or stops you from getting the accurate clues together in order to move forward. They should be replaced. Also, I remember a ticket used to be $22, and now increased to $32. I'm assuming this is due to Covid, and maybe funds are low which is why they can't replace the clues, but I think they should def invest or try to fix the clues/props in the room. Also, I've been to a couple escape rooms and other places have a staff member quickly conduct a lock tutorial (how to clear the locks, etc.) so that would be helpful to add as well for new comers. Other than that, this place is awesome and has amazing rooms.

I always wanted to try an escape room and my husband found this place. We did the apartment room with two other couples and we had a blast. We had 1 hour to escape and we escaped just on time with 22 seconds left. The staff was amazing and was a huge help with helping us understand the hints that were given. It was awesome! We are definitely going back to do the train escape and the prison escape. Can’t wait!!!

We had fun doing this room. A group of us did The Abandonded Warehouse, with only one puzzle we didn't make it but it was fun and exciting. My only suggestion is to give a better background to start. There was just no clue about anything so we had to use one of our hints in the beginning.

What ages is this recommended for? If we go as a family will we be lane or with other people?
Yes, it's good for families.. Both kids and adults will enjoy it but I would say age 7 Plus. I wouldn't take kids under 7 or 8 they might not get it.
